My boyfriend and I love this place year round! We fish in the summer. And enjoy renting the fishing boats and pontunes. We also like coming here to hike. Last year we saw a opossum on our hike. Today we saw hundreds of migrating sea gulls. Always a joy to come and spend the day at Shabbona Lake!

This place has made me and my family a fan of the outdoors. We stop by at least twice a year to camp, fish, and enjoy the outdoors. A great place to go unwind and refuel.

Fished during the eclipse. We were hoping fish would jump on the boat. They didn't. Still a bad day fishing is better than a good day working.

I've gone here for the past 2 years to stargaze when there is no moon but this past summer I actually camped out over night. The process was easy and my campsite had a power outlet/pole. There were also showers and toilets with running water. Nice place overall
