This Lake is Great Year Round for BIG Bass Fishing. Says Mike Cook
This lake is so wonderful. Cips Lake is near Splash N Dash where you could have plenty of fun. If you need a spot to stay Americas Best Value Inn Effingham is a wonderful choice. Central Illinois Public Service Dam has good water scenery and it's near Cips Lake; since you're here, you could also take a look at gorgeous Lake Pauline. Why not spend some time golfing at a close by golf
course like Fore-Way Golf Course. Head out on the wonderful water at Sportman's Cove Marina, and a tremendous spot to camp here at Cips Lake is Lake Sara Campgrounds Ltd.
