A few days ago my wife and I took a little mini-vacation and spent a night at the resort hotel at the Illinois Beach State Park which is located in Zion, Illinois (Lake County). It’s a strange park in that it is composed of two units – North and South – with a decommissioned nuclear power plant in between.
The lake level is high this year and the wave activity has not been kind to the beach as you will see in the photos. In past years the sand portion of the beach was much more extensive and it drew big crowds. Not so much this year. I only saw a few people using the beach.
