A Relaxing & Natural Atmosphere
Evergreen Lake's 10 horsepower limit maintains the lake's relaxing and natural atmosphere, providing a perfect setting for fishing, sailing, and canoeing. Two dual-lane launch ramps allow for ease of access. The lake's 900-acre size has also made it one of the most popular sailboarding lakes in Central Illinois.

A boat launch is conveniently located inside Comlara Park's Main Recreation Area (MRA) next to the Evergreen Lake boat rental facility. A second launch is located in the White Oak Area (WOA) on County Road 1200E.
