    Community Lake in Northern Illinois

    Lost Lake is a quiet community lake in northern, rural Illinois, located just 35 miles south of Rockford.

    Stunning Waters in the Lost Lake Community

    The Lost Lake Community of over 350 homes enjoys the charm of this 88-acre lake. The lake was created in the mid-1960s then enlarged by a dam in 1972. Babbling Brook and Clear Creek feed the waters.
