Elkhart Lake

Elkhart Lake is in Sheboygan County. Its population hovers in the area of 1,000 plus or minus, but it is a legendary vacation spot and rises quite a way above that in tourism season. The residents see Elkhart Lake as a village. It most certainly is a quaint one, and is filled with lots of fun. The village is seen as a getaway any time of the year. The entire area is picturesque. The lake itself resembles an elk’s heart, which is why the first residents, the Potawatomi Native Americans, called its “Great Elk Heart Lake.”
