When summer rolls around, many of us start thinking about where we’ll go for a swim. Lucky for us, Illinois has numerous lakes, rivers, and watering holes to cool off on a sweltering day. One place you may consider heading to in the warmer months is the beach at Three Oaks Recreation Area which has some of the clearest water to swim in. And it just so happens to be in the aptly named city of Crystal Lake.

Are you planning to swim in the crystalline waters at Three Oaks Recreation Area this year? If you’ve been here before, please let us know about your experience.

Visit the Three Oaks Recreation Area webpage and Facebook page for more information and to plan a day trip here this summer.
