In 1963 the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers began work in central Illinois on a dam across the Kaskaskia River, with the goal of developing a new mid-state watershed and recreational lake. The result was long, narrow Lake Shelbyville, Illinois’ thirdlargest lake, with 172 miles of shoreline offering a wide array of recreational opportunities. That project has resulted in a huge lakeside leisure mecca, with hotels, restaurants, entertainment, shopping, marinas, fishing, and, of course, camping. There are at least 2,000 campsites in the public and private campgrounds scattered around the lake.
