Explore Moraine State Park
If you’re looking for a way to actively spend a day with the family or a group of friends, then you should go to the Moraine State Park. They offer a very wide variety of outdoor activities, including fishing and boating, as well as there are many beautiful trails to go hiking or biking. The park itself is located close to the Fox River and McHenry Dam, just 3 miles (5 km) south of McHenry town centre. The Lake Defiance in the middle of the park is especially interesting, because it’s one of a very few glacial lakes in Illinois, so it’s for sure worth checking out.
