Canton Lake


Canton Lake's lovely, wooded, 13-mile shoreline possesses a public campground and boat launch, as well as private residences. Open April 15-October 15, the campground offers full-hookup sites and a restroom/shower facility. A nice sandy beach is conveniently located near the campground. Area fishermen will tell you that Canton Lake's fish are the best tasting in the region, attributing it to the lake's cold spring source. Bluegill, crappie,Largemouth Bass, and catfish are all there for the taking (with a valid Illinois fishing license).
