Does anyone know if there's a public boat launch at Wheaton Lake? If so is it suitable for a bass boat or just a car topper?

most of the dock is gone, watch for big spikes sticking out of the ground from old rails right in front of and along the short trail from the parking lot to the lake (nasty on tires, carry in the boat)

lake is amazing for smallies.....or atleast used to be....now on the back side you used to be able to back dopwn that sandy path road and back your boat right into the water....looks to be a house on it now??...from the link posted above.......

the area Ipop and Jim are talking about is your best bet....if you got a bass boat you wont be carrying it to the water from where they are talking about....better bring something smaller...just an awesome lake though.......

I waded along the broken down dock a few weeks ago with no bite. Not giving up on lake based on success people had on this lake per above posts. Trail from parking lot to dock is just wide enough for me to wheel my I inflatable so I will try that next.

I was just in the lake last week with a canoe.  Paddled the perimeter and picked up some nice smallmouth (largest 18") and a good sized white perch.

Wheaton is one heavily pressured little lake. I can remember going there and seeing white senkos every where on the bottom of the lake that were swelled up to about 8 inches long. I've seen amazing fishing there and I've seen terrible fishing as well. White perch are very strange. You can either catch them one after another or they are hitting and you'd think the lake is totally devoid of them. Smelt are the primary forage species of the lake. They do stock the lake with a few landlochs (probably not more than a 5 gallon bucket full, seriously if you look at the numbers). There are a few good sized smallies in there. Very clear water usually. I think the lake has been over publicized in this forum and by others to the point where it isn't predictably productive as it once was, but then again, I only fished it twice last year and not at all this year. I think I was spoiled the first few times I fished it years ago.
