About Druce Lake

In the Suburbs of Waukegan, Illinois

Druce Lake is a smaller, tranquil lake located within the Village of Third Lake community. Also known as Chittenden Lake and Second Lake, this lake was named after Alexander Druce, who came from New York to purchase it in 1844.

 

Nearby is the larger Third Lake, which sits to the west of Druce Lake. Third Lake covers 157 acres and is available to residents of Druce Lake as well. Both lakes are naturally formed and are not open to the public.

 

Lake Recreation

Community residents are invited to swim, boat, canoe, kayak, and fish on both lakes within the Village of Third Lake.

 

Fishing on both lakes is excellent. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources fish survey shows that largemouth bass and bluegill are the most common species. Black crappie and northern pike are also caught. Once the lakes freeze over, residents can enjoy ice fishing as well.

 

A narrow channel connects Druce Lake to Third Lake, but residents can also access both lakes via the Village dock.
