Spotlight – Lake Shelbyville

Covering 11,100 acres, Lake Shelbyville is a premier recreational lake operated by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers with cooperation from the Illinois Dept. of Natural Resources. The lake, located in Moultrie and Shelby counties, has approximately 172 miles of shoreline dotted with secluded coves and features nine federal park facilities, two state parks and three marinas. The range of activities available both on the lake and through these facilities includes boating, fishing, swimming, water skiing, camping, hiking, picnicking, horseback riding and hunting - and that’s just during the warm months. Winter sports include ice fishing, snowmobiling and cross-country skiing. Construction of the lake started in May 1963, and water impoundment began in the summer of 1970. In addition to the main dam, which is located at Shelbyville, the lake features two unusual bridges, the 3,200 ft. Findlay Bridge and the Coal Shaft Bridge, the design of which are unique in the United States. Two of the three marinas on Lake Shelbyville are located in Moultrie County. Sullivan Marina, located south of Sullivan on Illinois Route 32, has overnight facilities, a restaurant on the lake, gas, fresh water service for boaters and a campground. Findlay Marina, located just west of the Findlay Bridge, offers boat and motor sales, a snack bar and gas service. Both of these marinas, as well as the Lithia Springs Marina, located near the Shelbyville Dam at the south end of the lake, offer boat rentals and information on fishing guide services. The numerous coves along the 172 mile shoreline are secluded and often used to picnic, overnight in houseboats, swimming and fishing.
