Description

Brandenburg Lake, also known as Lake of the Hollow, is a private, freshwater lake connected to Illinois' Fox Chain of Lakes. This glacial succession includes nine major bodies of water, all connected to each other through a number of smaller lakes, canals, and the Fox River. Water level control on the entire Fox River Chain O'Lakes is controlled by a series of dams on the Fox River. The dams, under the control of the Illinois Division of Water Resources, maintain recreational water levels and control flooding. An impressive 6,500 acres of water and 488 total miles of shoreline make up the chain, which attracts a weekend average of 60,000 visitors.
