Lake Springfield In Illinois

Lake Springfield, Illinois

Boating, camping and fishing.

With 3,850 acres of boating water, Lake Springfield is conveniently located on the southern outskirts of Springfield, IL. There is a marina, restaurants, boat launch ramps and boat rentals to enhance boating excursions. Canoes and kayaks are a simple way to do a little fishing and some sightseeing. Much of the over 50 miles of shoreline is tree-lined, private property, making it hard to access the shoreline for fishing. There are areas where fishing from the bank is an option, including specified "Fishing Areas". In addition to excellent, year-round catfish fishing, the lake offers bass, crappie, walleye, bluegill, white bass and sunfish fishing.
