About Wayne Lakes Village
The Village of Wayne Lakes is a unique community. Decades ago the site was originally a gravel pit. Eighteen (18) lakes and ponds formed, a small fishing community grew into a village with over 300 homes. Residents voted to incorporate into a village in the early 1980’s. The village owns all the lakes. There are about 10 miles of paved roads in the village with pull-offs or parking places at or near many of the larger lakes. Fishing is allowed for both residents and the public for a small fee. Pine, oak, ash, maple, cottonwood, and walnut trees line the roads, making them wonderful to walk.
