Lower Bolton is just under a mile long and just over a half mile wide with a developed shore line for the most part.
It is separated from Middle Bolton by an earthen dam which can be portaged (75 yards) on the west end, or near the spillway, which is a 2 ft. high lowhead dam.
Middle Bolton is about the same length as lower and less than a half mile wide. Most but not all of the shore line is developed. Middle Bolton is separated from Upper by a lightly traveled 2 lane road. It is an easy portage.
Upper Bolton is also about the same length as the others, but narrower. It is about 2 ft. deep everywhere and will develop a healthy crop of lily pads as summer comes on. In May, it was still easy paddling. But, the lakeshore is undeveloped and few houses can be seen at all from the lake.
The north end of the lake peters out into a cedar swamp, which has several narrow channels that are canoeable and worth exploring, if you like that sort of thing...I do. Upper Bolton has a nice backwoods feel to it.
