    About Candlewick Lake
    Boone County, Illinois

    Candlewick Lake is a private, human-made 210-acre lake ripe for fishing and water skiing outside of Rockford, Illinois. Downtown Chicago is under two hours away.

    It’s surrounded by a gated community with a nine-hole golf club, community pool, beach on the southern shore, recreation center, emergency rescue squad, parks, walking trails, and tennis courts as well as a few restaurants.

    If that isn’t enough to sell you on the lake, the homeowners association provides 24-hour security and rowboats are available to rent.

    Anglers at the lake can expect to catch northern pike, catfish, crappie, bluegill, perch, and bass. The lake freezes in the winter, which makes it an ideal location for ice fishing.

    The lake is 15 minutes from Bea Hospital and 30 minutes from Chicago Rockford International Airport.

    Nearby Outdoors

    The Rock Cut State Park is not far from the lake and includes 3,092 acres and two lakes for swimming, boating, and fishing. The park also offers several miles of trails that are prepared for cross-country skiing. A part of the park is open for deer and turkey hunting in season.
