The Gilbert Lake Association is a group of lake residents interested in the wise recreational use of this natural resource while preserving water quality.  Gilbert Lake covers 369 acres with 7.8 miles of shoreline and a maximum depth of 45 feet.  There is a public landing on the north side of the lake on Gilbert Lake Road.  Fish include Northern Pike, Blue Gill, Bass, and Crappie.  Everyone is urged to use the lake in a responsible way, including cleaning boats and trailers to prevent the spread of invasive species.  Think Postive Test Negative
