Welcome to the Village of Island Lake, Illinois, which resides in McHenry and Lake Counties.
Island Lake, incorporated in 1952, began decades before with the creation of the actual Island Lake, including the manmade island for which it was named.
Island lake, like much of the surrounding area, began as a summer cottage development, providing recreation and a getaway retreat.
