Located in the heart of Illinois' largest concentration of natural lakes is Chain O'Lakes State Park. The park borders three natural lakes - Grass, Marie and Nippersink - and the Fox River that connects the other seven lakes (Bluff, Fox, Pistakee, Channel, Petite, Catherine and Redhead) that make up the Chain.
