What Makes Lodi and Lake Wisconsin so Special?

The Lodi and Lake Wisconsin area features restaurants, shopping, and year-round outdoor fun - all in a small town feel. All of the activities take a backstage to our beautiful 10,000 acre lake-Lake Wisconsin. This well-kept secret, offers boating, fishing, skiing, tubing and swimming fun!


The Legend of Susie the Duck

In 1948, a country mallard made Lodi her home. She settled in the downtown area and laid her eggs in a large masonry basket full of beautiful flowers. When her eggs hatched, she drew quite a bit of attention as locals and visitors came to observe her brood. Lodi’s then police chief and his granddaughter also came to see the small fuzzy baby ducklings and their mother.  The chief asked his granddaughter what she thought the mother duck’s name should be?  She replied “Susie”. Susie has faithfully returned to her flower basket for years, raising many ducklings and much media attention. Through the years, many “Susies” have nested the flower basket.  Each year Lodi hosts an annual “Susie the Duck Day” celebrating the famous fowl who nests in the heart of Lodi.
