The largest and most populated of the water ski lakes is Lake Stevens. The town of Lake Stevens wraps around the lake. The roads that surround the lake allow every foot of waterfront to be developed. The cabins of the past have mostly been replaced with mansions now. The hillsides around the lake are covered with cul-de-sacs and newer homes. A lot of the new developments have a community dock on a small sliver of lake front.
