LAKE IN THE HILLS – The village’s lakes provide many recreational activities, including boating, swimming and fishing.

Those interested in using resources need to sign up for a lake-use permit, which gives all household members access to swim or boat on the lakes.

Daily-use fees also are available.

A boat-use permit is an additional expense after first purchasing a lake-use permit. Boat-use permits are required for those planning to do any boating activities, and they require proof of residency along with current Illinois Department on Natural Resources boat registration.

Boaters who would like to use the Woods Creek Lake for one day can pay a $15 daily boat launch fee. In order to protect the lakes, motor boats are prohibited.

Lake-use permits, boat permits and boat storage racks (limited availability) may be bought at Village Hall.

A complete list of fees and regulations can be found at
