About Lake Wildwood:
Lake Wildwood is a private, gated, recreational lake community of approximately 1433 acres including a 218 acre all sports lake, a 14 acre (electric motors only) fishing lake, two beaches, swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball court, 3600 sq ft lodge, pavilions, picnic areas, hiking areas, playgrounds, and association activities approximately 1 1/2 hrs from southwest Chicago suburbs. A great week-end getaway in winter or summer, yet close enough for a day trip, or if you fall in love with the quiet, a great year round residence in close proximity to the city.
Local topography consists of old growth hardwood forest, rolling hills, beautiful valleys, scenic ravines, and meadow land. The area, which historically was left as untouched timber, abounds with wildlife. Deer, fox, raccoon, coyote, turkey, hawks, pheasant, owls, geese, ducks, osprey, and great blue heron are all local inhabitants. Several rare birds have been spotted and wildflowers and mushrooms are abundant.
Lake Wildwood is approximately 60 feet deep at its deepest part with approximately 8 miles of shoreline. Owners and their guests enjoy fishing, swimming, water skiing, jet skiing, and all types of water sports. Numerous coves provide no wake areas for fishermen or for a break from the action. For a quieter experience, Lake Tanglewood offers peaceful canoeing, kayaking, and fishing. Our natural resources committee along with the Illinois Department of Natural Resources works diligently on our yearly stocking program for both lakes to provide us with great fish stories. Most winters provide a nice ice fishing season as well.
Area attractions include small communities offering delicious dining, seasonal small town festivals, access to launch your boat on the Illinois River for a day trip to Peoria going south or the spectacular sandstone bluffs of Starved Rock State Park to the north, and local antique, candy, and specialty stores. Golf courses within a 15 mile radius are Edgewood in McNabb, a public 18 hole course, Lacon Country Club, in Lacon, a private 18 hole course, Crooked Knee in Henry, a public 18 hole course, and Snag Creek, Washburn, a public course.
