| 50 acres to paddle on created by 2 interconnected lakes, Big Bear Lake and Little Bear Lake. See the report from Prairie State Canoeists. They report this put-in is great for a night time paddle since the boat launch is open until 10:30 pm.
May also be good for quick daytime paddles if you have small children as there is a playground off the north entrance to the park (adjacent to the baseball fields).
