Runge Hollow Recreation Area

The majority of land in the Runge Hollow vicinity is private property, so visitors are asked to please respect landowners rights when recreating in this area. Vernon County has recently executed a recreation easement with the Christianson family. The easement area includes the dam and much of the eastern shore of Runge Hollow Lake. The west and north shores, and the northeast shore remain private land and access is not allowed without permission from the affected landowners.  Vernon  County Parks manages the boat launch and fishing pier.  The lake is open to public fishing, however, the surrounding lands are NOT open to public hunting.  Motor boats are not allowed – electric trolling motors only please.

The lake is formed by a large flood control structure commonly known as the Runge Hollow dam.  The lake is approximately 44 acres in size, and is home to trout, largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie and perch.  The lake is a very popular fishing location for many area and visiting fishermen and women.  An accessible fishing pier is located near the boat launch.
