Fox Lake is a resort town at the heart of the Chain O'Lakes region just an hour from Chicago. The region is made up of 15 lakes plus the Fox River, and is a hot spot for water activities and attractions.
Summer on the lakes means everything from swimming to water skiing to fishing to boating. At different marinas guests can rent paddle boards, kayaks, and boats. Sailing is also a popular way to spend time on the water. Fishermen will look out for bass, blue gill, channel catfish, carp, muskie, northern pike and walleye.
