Lake Storey Park is a 411 acre community recreation facility on the north side of Galesburg, and includes playgrounds, ball fields, a beach, a campground, a multipurpose trail and the 130 acre lake known for its excellent fishing and boating opportunities. This is an outstanding opportunity for nature enthusiasts, boy scouts, girl scouts, and other community service organizations to help preserve and enhance one of the area's most beautiful natural treasures.
