Location: Sunset Lake is located within the River Bend Forest Preserve, which is located in south Mahomet on Mid-America Road about one mile west of Route 47. The physical address is 1602 Mid-America Road, Mahomet.

Description: This 280-acre site contains approximately 130-acres of clear water in two lakes, Sunset and Shadow. Sunset Lake is the county's largest lake. The area also includes 2.5 miles of forest along the Sangamon River as well as a 1-mile nature trail, and a 1.2-mile multi-use trail.

Additional Lake Information: Possibility Pier, designed for universal accessibility, allows a seated person to fish through railing slots and use tackle tables at just the right height. Artificial aquatic weeds strung from the bottom of the pier attract fish, and specially constructed habitat structures on the bottom do the same. Watercraft power is limited to oar, paddle, or electric trolling motors.
