Chicago Lake Campsites

Area Status: Open
This area is Open
 

Even though Chicago Lake (188 acres) is a busy lake you can still see and hear loons. Four campsites and an improved boat launch can be found on Chicago Lake, all clustered around its north end. Site #1 is small (20 ft x 15 ft), heavily wooded and isolated. The access road is poor and a 4 wheel drive and tents are recommended. This site is suitable for one family only and is desired by those looking for privacy from other campers. Swimming is considered to be poor.
