Location - Lake Thunderbird is only 2 hours southwest of Chicago - with 4 lane expressway within 10 minutes of the Lake, southwest means no traffic to fight coming to the Lake on Friday night and no traffic to fight going home on Sunday night, plus no tolls to pay. Just a peaceful enjoyable place in the un-discovered section of Illinois.
Natural Beauty - An ice glacier formed the beautiful hilly wooded valley for the location of Lake Thunderbird. You will think that you are in the hills of Northern Wisconsin.
Outstanding Fishing - Because of an extremely aggressive stocking program Lake Thunderbird is considered to be one of the best fishing lakes in the country. This deep clean clear spring fed lake annually yields catches of 8 and 9 lb. large mouth bass, tiger musky, hybrid stripers, white bass, striped bass, catfish, crappie, blue gill, northern pike and walleye. Also for night time fishing the nice bullheads are available, and since the lake is spring fed water the fish have a better taste.
Boating - Motorboats are allowed up to 100 HP and 19ft. in length. Water-skiing is a lot of fun. Pontoon boats can be 26 1/2 ft. and 40 HP. The Lake is about 2 1/2 miles long and has 8 1/2 miles of shore line.
Swimming - White sandy beach or the swimming pool at the clubhouse.
Building Requirements - You can buy now and build at a later date because there is no limit on when you must build on your property. You can build your complete home yourself or select a builder of your choice. Minimum requirements on main floor is 600 square feet. Homes of every design are built at Lake Thunderbird.
Living - Perfect location for Full Time or Retirement, close enough for the family to visit on the weekend, but not too close to prevent your relaxing in the sun or on the lake all alone during the week. School bus and mailman services, 2 firestations, close to hospitals and more.
Camping - If you would like to own property now and build later and like to camp, there is a nice campground available for property owners and their guests. Electricity is available to each site. Showers and dressing rooms are available and kept very clean. There is nominal charge for camping to help offset the electrical bill and pay a lady to keep the restrooms and showers clean. And as a plus factor we have a storage area for leaving campers and boats. This area is available to all property owners. That makes it handy, as you do not have to tow your camper or boat back and forth. You can leave it at the lake.
