Our Location and Directions

Bangs Lake is a natural glacial lake located in northeastern Illinois’ Lake County and is considered a popular destination for family recreation in the Chicagoland area. The lake is managed by the Village of Wauconda, in cooperation with the Lake County Health Department Lakes Management Unit and the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Although the majority of property around the lake is privately owned, the Wauconda Park District maintains the community’s public beach and its facilities.

Our derby tent is located on the private beachfront in the Lake View Villa Association (LVVA). This is a quaint neighborhood area, please be courteous when commuting through the streets. Look for guys to assist with parking.

Parking is available on Edgewater Parkway (Wauconda, IL.)
