More than a Lake!

The 600 acres at Lake Storey Recreational Area offer year-round outdoor adventure. From golf to a waterslide, from bike trails to fishing, this Galesburg park is a gem.

Lake Storey has a quiet campground, but offers lots of fun too.  You can swim, picnic, boat, play tennis or just relax on the beach or at any one of the three pools. And, winter adventures will thrill at the new snowmobile trail and warming shelter.
