Chain O Lakes

Located in northeastern Illinois, the Chain O Lakes State Park is located in the heart of the state's largest concentrations of lakes. This series of ten lakes, connected by the Fox River, are of glacial origin. Large chunks of glacial ice were buried by receding ice sheets and later melted, forming what are called kettle lakes.
As one would easily guess, the Chain O Lakes Park is all about water activities. Boating, swimming and fishing take top billing in the summer. In the winter, when the lakes are frozen over, ice skating and ice-fishing are some of the favorite pastimes.
