Decatur Lake Spillway:  View Video
Latitude: 42.64483   Longitude: -89.40900
A popular spot for fisherman (there were 8 there when this photograph was taken, but I didn't see any fish caught).  This spillway is 2.5 miles NW of Brodhead.  From Brodhead go west 1.75 miles on 4th Street which turns into County Road F and turn right on Park Road.  Go north 1.24 miles and turn right into the entrance to Decatur Park.  A rather difficult steep dirt path will take you down to the 10 foot spillway area.  This lake in on the Sugar River system.

Links & Helpful Hints...
Before you visit a waterfall it is helpful to know the surrounding landscape... we use two free internet services to help.  www.topoquest.com provides free topo maps which can be enlarged and printed.  Access Topoquest and then click "find maps" on their website, put in GPS from our data (without the minus sign), click "search", then click on the first USGS map that has a DRG name, click on the map itself and select zoom level.  To navigate the area... if you want to look at an area left of the map, click on the left edge of the map, etc.  Below each map will be a listing of features shown on the map... a little work and you will learn their system (sometime clicking on the edge will not take you to an adjacent map).
---------------
We also use Google Earth.  It is a free service you can download at https://www.google.com/earth/.  Like Topoquest, you put in GPS data (or city, or county and state) and it will "fly" you to the location requested. 
---------------
There are lots of internet sites that list facts about Wisconsin... one of the best is the Wisconsin DNR site http://dnr.wi.gov/ which has all kinds of info.  Another good site is www.discoverwisconsin.com.
