Brooks Cove

The group of lakes now named Beulah lies in sections 4. 5, 8. 9, 16, 17. 18. The outlet of these lakes finds its way through Mukwonago to Fox river. Lake Beulah station, Wisconsin Central Railway, in section 12. is a bit more than three miles from the namesake lakes, eighty-five miles from Chicago, and thirty-live miles (by rail) from Milwaukee. These lakes have long been known to local campers, boaters, fishers, and swimmers,—the latter favored by the irregular shore lines. At Hately's Bay (or Brooks Cove) on the upper lake, in section 17, the bottom drops away rapidly to the depth of sixtyseven feet within a lew rods of shore, and for more than a quarter-mile toward the Opposite shore the water is sixty or more feet deep.
