A Relaxing & Natural Atmosphere
Evergreen Lake's 10 horsepower limit maintains the lake's relaxing and natural atmosphere, providing a perfect setting for fishing, sailing, and canoeing. Two dual-lane launch ramps allow for ease of access. The lake's 900-acre size has also made it one of the most popular sailboarding lakes in Central Illinois. Download a
