We always stop at Askins Lake when travelling through Illinois. The Lodge has some the best food available ANYWHERE!The motel is located in a quiet peaceful area off the beaten path. It's just the perfect place to get away from it all for a few days!
If you are seeking a marina, Findlay Marina is close by. A pleasant nearby hotel is Super 8 Altamont; Askins Lake is not far at all from Lakewood. Askins Lake is a delightful spot to visit for more than
one day, Robin Hood woods Campground is a delightful spot to camp nearby. Lakes are nice; Lake Sara is a lake that's next to Askins Lake.
