Kayaking In Illinois

There are many reasons why people decide to go kayaking. Some enjoy the outdoors, some just want to get away from it all, and some like the solitude that comes with being out on the water. Whatever your reason for wanting to go kayaking, there are places in Illinois where you can do so safely.

Kayaking is an activity that can be enjoyed by people of any age or fitness level. If you’re just getting started, you’ll find that most lakes and rivers are quite gentle. However, if you’re more experienced, you might consider taking on a lake that’s a little rougher.

There are a number of places in Illinois where you can go kayaking. One of the best places to start is the Lake Michigan shoreline. There are many lakes in this area, including Lake Michigan itself. Many of these lakes have been developed into resorts, and they offer plenty of opportunities for kayaking. You can rent kayaks at these resorts, or you can bring your own.

Another good place to go kayaking is the Fox River. The Fox River is a tributary of the Illinois River. It runs through the state’s northwest corner, and it has several small lakes along its course. These lakes make excellent destinations for kayaking.

The Illinois River is another great option. This river runs through southern Illinois, and it’s also a tributary of the Mississippi River. It’s not as well known as the Fox River, but it offers some beautiful scenery, and it’s easy to get to.

If you’re looking for a little more excitement, you might want to try the Kankakee River. This river is located in the southwestern part of the state, and it runs through wooded areas. The river is home to many species of fish, and it’s very popular among anglers. Kayaking here is a fun way to spend a day.

If you’re interested in going kayaking, but you don’t live near one of these rivers, you can still take advantage of them. There are several companies that offer guided trips on these rivers. They usually offer a variety of different trips, including ones that are suitable for beginners.

Whether you choose to go kayaking alone or with others, you’ll find that there are plenty of places in Illinois where you’ll be able to enjoy the outdoors.
