Carlyle Lake: "Dam West Marina" Illinois Hotel Tip by searay185sports

Illinois Hotels: 17 reviews and 16 photos

Because all the campsites around Carlyle Lake were booked, we settled on a state park's picnic area close to the marina at Dam West access.

Plus: Feast your eyes on the endless streams of boat coming in and going out.
Picnic tables each has a grill for your own personal use
The area is clean

Neg: Too crowded, too noisey...not ideal for those seeking solitude/privacy

Unique Qualities: The beach is conparably larger and clean

Address: Dam West Carlyle Lake IL
Theme: Other
