    Overview

    Description

    Whether you visit for an afternoon or stay a few days, you will leave Lake Le-Aqua-Na State Park with many happy memories. Located in Stephenson County just west of Route 73 on Lake Road, the park is six miles south of the Illinois-Wisconsin state line and three miles north of Lena. Highlighted by a 40-acre lake and all the recreational opportunities there, the park also offers multi-use trails, picnic areas, and RV, tent, equestrian and youth group campgrounds. Developed as part of a statewide plan to provide Illinois citizens with recreational opportunities close to home, the park was started with a land acquisition program in 1948 and was dedicated as a 715-acre state park 10 years later. Lake Le-Aqua-Na's name is the result of a contest sponsored by the Stephenson County Sportsmans Club, one of the park's many sponsors. The name is a combination of the town of Lena and the Latin word for water, aqua.
