Elkhart Lake is in Sheboygan County. Its population hovers in the area of 1,000 plus or minus. It is a legendary vacation spot. 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 resembles an elk’s heart, so the first residents, the Potawatomi Native Americans, called it “Great Elk Heart Lake.”

There are lakeside resorts, vacation rentals, restaurants, casual and fine, trails for walking and biking, boat launches, retail shops, coffee shops, and the list goes on and on. It is a splendid location for weddings. The Village tells you, “Located in the middle of the beautiful Kettle Moraine, the Village of Elkhart Lake is nestled on the shores of one of Wisconsin’s deepest and cleanest lakes. Incorporated in 1894, Elkhart Lake is rich with legends stretching from its American Indian forebearers and infamous gamblers to its longstanding status as one of the world’s top road racing destinations. The Village is known for the charm of its Victorian architecture and welcoming spirit.”
