Fourth Lake real estate is a beautiful, but lesser known, market for lake homes and land in Illinois.
Fourth Lake is located in the famous Lake County in the state of Illinois. It has a surface area of 304.6 acres and 5.4 miles of shoreline. It is a shallow lake with a maximum depth of about 5.5 feet.
Fourth Lake and its fen ecosystem are home to a variety of state threatened and endangered plant species and could provide habitat for the American bittern and various rails.
Bordering the western shore of Fourth Lake is the Fourth Lake Forest Preserve. This unique nature preserve is known for its beautiful plant species.
For anyone looking to spend more time outdoors, this forest preserve does not disappoint. There is biking, hiking, and cross-country skiing in the 626-acre park.
Boating, swimming, and fishing are allowed in Fourth lake, but there is no public access boat launch.
Smaller preserves like The Duck Farm Forest Preserve and Fourth Lake Fen Forest Preserve are also located on Fourth Lake's shore.
A few miles south is the Renwood Golf Course, which has a beautifully manicured 18-hole course. Living on Fourth Lake is a hole in one.
A lesser-known city in Illinois compared to its larger counterpart Chicago, Waukegan is a few miles drive from Fourth Lake. Nearby is Six Flags of Great America, which is an amusement park with roller coasters, games, and fun events.
If you are looking to see a bigger city, visit Chicago. It has hundreds of attractions, shops, restaurants, and fun experiences to enjoy. Take a guided boat cruise on the Spirit of Chicago or sail the day away in a giant sailboat. You will feel like one of the early sailors going on a new adventure.
Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or a vacation rental, Fourth Lake is an excellent choice.
