Fox Lake

Situated among the Chain O’Lakes, 55 miles northwest of downtown Chicago, Fox Lake is a popular summer destination and a comfortable place to call home year-round.

The village’s population more than doubles during the summer with visitors enjoying swimming, boating, jet skiing, tubing and wake boarding.

At one time, the area had 50 hotels, including one that was a weekend retreat (aka hideout) for the infamous Chicago gangster Al Capone.

Students in the community are served by Fox Lake Grade School District 114, which includes Lotus Elementary School and Stanton Middle School. High school students attend Grant Community High School.

The Fox Lake Metra Station makes transportation convenient for residents and visitors with direct access to Chicago’s Union Station.
