"The Heart of Illinois Amish Country"
Lake Shelbyville's abundant miles of shoreline and 11,000 acres of water is paradise to visitors from all over the country. There's plenty of room for boating, playing, fishing, picnicking, hiking, hunting or simply unwinding.
Lake Shelbyville is just a few miles down the road and minutes away from downtown Arthur. Wooded natural shorelines, trails, state park campsites and four star resort accommodations. Whether roughing it means a tent or a mint on your pillow each evening, you'll cherish your time visiting the lake area.
The lake, overseen by the U.S, Army Corps of Engineers, offers sparkling waters, miles of wooded shoreline, sheltered coves and six sandy beaches.
Wolf Creek and Eagle Creek State Parks also border Lake Shelbyville. The parks encompass miles of shoreline and large tracts of carefully maintained indigenous woodland ... ideal for camping, hiking, horseback riding and snowmobiling. All this less than 20 minutes from Arthur.
Time spent at the lake can be an important addition to your time in East Central Illinois!
