 Welcome to Lake LU

Lake LU, pronounced Lake “El-Yoo”, is a 54-acre lake on the University campus that provides facilities for fishing, boating and picnicking. The Lake was opened in 1976 and is currently managed by Robby Limerick.

Lake LU has competitive fees for rentals, pavilions and fishing. It’s makes a great location for a family reunion, a romantic outing or a Saturday picnic with the family. Reserve your pavilion today if you are planning a larger event.

Make sure you are familiar with the lake hours, regulations and fees. We provide a topographical map, fishing statistics and current weather information to make your fishing trip planning a little easier.
