Lake Of Egypt In Illinois

Lake Of Egypt, Illinois

Boating, camping and fishing.

Convenient for boating in southern Illinois, Lake Of Egypt is a 2,300-acre lake with over 90 miles of shoreline. Several boat launch ramps are open to pleasure, water ski and fishing boats. Several marinas serve the boating public, and there are a variety of rental boats available at the lake. Access to the shoreline for fishing from the bank, or portage of a canoe or kayak, is available at Buck Ridge Campground and several other areas around the lake. Fishing is usually good for most species in the lake. Healthy populations of bass, bluegill and crappie reside here. Spring offers the best opportunity for big stringers and an occasional lunker. Follow the schools of bait as they move up in spring and fall, then go deeper in summer and winter.
