Protect the Lake!

PLEASE avoid using fertilizers, etc. on your lawns - especially if you live on the lake.  These chemicals cause alga blooms and kill the fish (and people.)

Welcome to Forest Lake

Welcome to Forest Lake, a community which encompasses a 42-acre private lake, offering dues-paying residents swimming, fishing, non-motorized boating and family-fun activities.   Forest Lake is located in Lake County, Illinois, bordered on the north by Old McHenry Road and on the west by Quentin Road.  The Forest Lake community was originally developed in 1935 by Arthur T. McIntosh Company and was intended to be a weekend retreat and getaway for Chicago residents.  Today the summer cottages have either been upgraded or replaced by much larger year-round homes.

Forest Lake offers great recreation

Summer in Forest Lake brings swimmers to the lake’s three beaches, boaters cruising the lake at sunset, and Fourth of July neighborhood picnics.  Winter, too, is enjoyed by residents as ice fishermen, skaters, and cross-country skiers frequent the ice.

Forest Lake is Managed by a Volunteer Homeowners' Association

The Forest Lake Community Association, established in 1935 by the handful of residents who had homes in Forest Lake at that time, has continued until the present day.  Its elected 12-member board oversees the care and maintenance of the lake, beaches, common grounds, and community center.  It also organizes children’s and family activities such as Breakfast with Santa, the Halloween Parade, and the Ice Fishing Derby.

For detailed information about our community, please use the links to the left.
