I personally love Lake Mills. It is home to many beautiful parks and recreational areas, two of which are beaches. The city sits on the shores of beautiful Rock Lake, a place of fun year round. It's great for boating and swimming in the summer and ice fishing in the winter! It's a close-knit community wherein nearly everyone knows everyone else and the neighbors help each other out. It's a growing community due to the safety of the neighborhoods and the excellent quality of the school district. Overall, an incredible town to live in.

Drinking water quality is 40% out of 100 according to State records. There is no urgent care or hospital. You are 20 minutes to a large store or hospital. Volunteer fire Dept.
