    About Brooks Lake
    Crawford County, Illinois

    Brooks Lake is located in Robinson Township, Illinois, just under three hours from St. Louis. Formed in 1816 with a current population of under 20,000, Crawford County gives residents and visitors a small-town feel.

    There are a few closer small airfields, but the closest major airport is Willard Airport, two hours away. Urgent care can be provided at Crawford Memorial Hospital, about 12 minutes away.

    Stock up on snacks and groceries at Walmart Supercenter under five miles away, or try a local-recommended restaurant such as Poor Little Mikey’s, Back Porch Smokehouse, Monical’s Pizza, or Tuscany Grill.

    While the lake is private, owning a home here will ensure a quiet oasis to enjoy unlike the larger lakes of the state.

    Entertainment Options

    Brooks Lake’s surroundings offer some unconventional things that you won’t find anywhere else.

    For instance, The World’s Largest Wind Chime and the World’s Largest Rocking Chair are located around 45 minutes away.

    Museum-lovers should visit Heath Museum & Confectionary or CANDLES Museum and Education Center.

    Explore Nature

    Nature-lovers should go to Crawford County Fish and Wildlife. The location will appeal to anglers as it has nine fishing ponds as well as many walking trails.

    Excellent Location for Lake Life

    Whether you are looking to buy a family home, a full-time retirement residence, or waterfront property, Brooks Lake is an excellent choice.
