Apple-Canyon-Lake is a private lake and resort community located in the rolling hills of Jo Daviess County, Illinois, about 60 miles northwest of Rockford. You must own land in the community to have access to the lake. Developed in 1969, Apple Canyon Lake has a marina that sells bait, gas and food. A restaurant and beach are also located at Apple Canyon Lake. Community members have access to a 9-hole golf course, hiking trails, tennis courts, camping and a clubhouse with a pool. The lake itself is 480 acres and one of the best Largemouth Bass fishing lakes in the entire state of Illinois. Other fish in the lake include Smallmouth Bass, Walleye, Northern Pike, Crappie, Catfish, Muskie and Bluegill. The community of Apple Canyon Lake is just a short drive to Apple River Canyon State Park and the city of Galena, which was the home of American Civil War General, Ulysses S. Grant. Eighty-five percent of the structures in Galena are listed on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Old Market House State Historic Site, built in 1845 and today a museum of local social history. Other things to do in the Apple Canyon Lake area include horse-drawn sleigh rides, wildlife viewing and birding and visiting the many art galleries and artist's studios, which are open to the public.

Surrounding areas: Galena, Illinois (13.4 mi), Fulton, Illinois (39.3 mi)
