Lake Wilhelm is an 1,860-acre lake located in Maurice K. Goddard State Park in Mercer County. It is very popular with anglers. Many recreational activities attract visitors in all seasons. The large lake, abundant wetlands, old fields and mature forests provide a diversity of habitats for wildlife, especially waterfowl, eagles and ospreys.
