    About Griswold Lake
    Located in the Suburbs North of Chicago

    Griswold Lake is located next to the Holiday Hills Village in McHenry County, Illinois. While it is part of the Chicagoland Area, its rustic landscapes give residents a down-home feel.

    The lake is less than 10 miles from Crystal Lake or McHenry, where you will find restaurants, shops, and schools, along with the Northwestern Medicine McHenry Hospital.

    It is approximately 30 miles from the O’Hare International Airport in Central Chicago.

    Recreation and Relaxation

    Griswold Lake features 141 acres of smooth, tranquil waters. It is a beautiful scene to overlook and just as enjoyable for kayaking, canoeing, and fishing.

    It has a maximum depth of 12 feet and holds populations of bluegill, largemouth bass, white crappie, and yellow perch.

    The Fox River is another fishing attraction in the area. Public access points are located on either side of Burton’s Bridge.
