Third Lake is a 155.5-acre lake in the Village of Third Lake in the well-known Lake County, Illinois. This private village contains Third Lake and the smaller Druce Lake connected by a small slew.
Third Lake is conveniently located about an hour's drive from the city of Chicago. This makes it a great living area for commuters or people looking to leave behind city life.
Boating, swimming, skating, and fishing are welcome on the scenic Third Lake. This lake requires a membership fee to use its facilities. Boats must have a valid sticker to be used on Third Lake or Druce Lake. The village does have a boat launch for easy water access.
Golfing can also be found nearby at the Renwood Golf Course and Grayslake Golf Course. Grayslake is a public course with nine holes that is perfect for golfers of all experience levels.

If you prefer a rod over a club, then you are in luck. Third Lake is the deepest lake in the area with a maximum depth of 70 feet. This gives anglers the chance to catch a variety of fish, including largemouth bass, bluegill, black crappie, and northern pike. Of course, during the winter, ice fishing is prevalent.
