  • Profile

    Located just east of Canton, the 250-acre Canton Lake’s lovely, wooded, 13-mile shoreline has a public campground and boat launch, as well as private residences. Open April 15-October 15, the campground offers full-hookup sites and a restroom/shower facility. A nice sandy beach is conveniently located near the campground. Peoria area fishermen will tell you that Canton Lake’s fish are the best tasting in the region, attributing it to the lake’s cold spring source. Bluegill, crappie,Largemouth Bass, and catfish are all there for the taking (with a valid Illinois fishing license). Please note that a boating permit from the city is required at Canton Lake.
