On all sport Lake Chapin, you can motorboat, jet-ski, sail, canoe, kayak, and sink a line in some of the best bass and salmon fishing waters in the country. From your dock, pontoon your way around the 600-acre lake or cruise a full nine miles on the fabled St. Joe River, soaking in its sights, sounds, and towns along the way. Stroll the rolling hills, acres of protected conservation land that will stay open and green forever. And take a quick drive to great dining, shopping, wineries, you-pick orchards, art and antique galleries, and golf. At just 90 minutes from Chicago’s Loop, it’s easy to see why life’s better where Wine Country meets the water.
