Tampier Lake is non-motorized lake located in a Cook County Forest Preserve with the boat launch entrance on the south side of 131 St. just west of Wolf Road. A cement boat ramp with ample parking provides a very nice put-in. Aluminum canoes and fishing boats with electric motors are available for rent but I could not find any time when they may be open.

Expect about a 45 minute paddle around the perimeter of the lake at a moderate pace. Paddling may be combined with a picnic, hike or fishing within the park. Expect to see much fishing and be prepare to have your sticker checked.
