Minutes west of Chicago and nestled in the middle of this characteristically deep, well-drained upland terrain, Shabbona Lake State Park provides a convenient, natural haven from the hustle and bustle of daily life.

Shabbona Lake State Park Campground is a semi-wooded area with 150 Class A sites with electricity, showers, vehicular access, boat launch, playground, kid's fishing area, and The Camp Store. A unique mix of grass-covered meadows, upland mesic woods, bottomland woods, and a native, undisturbed fen, or marsh, make this an ideal location for relaxation and out-door activity, With facilities for picnicking, dining, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and winter sports. Shabbona Lake is a convenient and comfortable retreat where you can refresh and reinvigorate yourself in a rare, unspoiled environment. Opened in 1978, this 1,500-acre park and 315- acre lake is managed by the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Bring your own poles or use The Camp Store's loaner fishing poles! We also have paddle boats that you may rent to enjoy a scenic view of Shabbona Lake. Each campsite has a gravel parking space, picnic table, and a campfire ring. Shabbona Lake State Park has two cabins available for rent. The cabin consists of two rooms that total approx. 200 square feet. Cabins are located near the shore of the lake and are fairly secluded.
