Seasonal Living

Your home away from home

Imagine enjoying your summers with family and friends at your very own summer home! Spend time around a campfire, take a dip in the pool and make memories that last a lifetime.  A seasonal site at Fish Lake Beach can be your home away from home, mid-April through October 15th.

Seasonal sites can be occupied by park models, travel trailers, 5th wheel RV’s and motorhomes. Each seasonal site is equipped with water, sewer, fire pit, metered electric and a picnic table. LP gas is available from Hicks Gas or Suburban Propane.  Television and internet services are available through Comcast, however, not included with seasonal license fees.

Looking for something move-in ready?  Contact Fish Lake Trailer Sales!  They offer new and pre-owned park models on Fish Lake Beach sites.

Site Availability and Placement

The site license rolls over automatically from season to season.  Before each season ends our seasonal campers (licensees) place a deposit on their site license for the following season. Licensees with an RV on their site that do not put a deposit on their site for the following season, reliquish their site for the following season.  Our waitlist of prospective seasonal campers is contacted in the early spring.  There are a number of variables involved in site selection so it is done on a one-to-one basis to ensure that site size, location and surroundings are a good fit.  For more information about available sites 847-546-2228 please email 

Get Away, Your Way!

Get away whenever you please or stay all season, from mid-April through October 15th.  Relax, socialize, and soak up our amenities, such as our spring fed lake, sandy beach, heated swimming pool, leash-free dog park and more!  Look forward to fun themed weekends and free activities throughout the season. Share your place with friends and family with FREE Guest Passes, a courtesy gift that comes with full payment of license fees by April 15th, or buy a Seasonal Vehicle Pass for $75 each.

FAQ: Licensees, Title, Passes, Trailer Insurance 

Do you have a handbook that covers most of the rules and guidelines?

YES!  Our Seasonal Handbook covers the majority of rules and guidelines for site licensees, also referred to as seasonal campers.

When can we come in to the park to start site clean up?

Here is the latest newsletter with that information. Please consider reading our NEWS section of this website as updates are posted there regularly.

As seasonal campers fill out the registration forms we tend to get questions about who can be a licensee, who gets free vehicle passes, and what title information is required. Please refer to the answers below as you fill out the registration forms. This information can also be found in the Permit and License Agreement and Seasonal License Handbook 2021.

Licensee(s): The primary licensee must be named on the unit title. If there is a secondary licensee, that individual must reside at the same address as the primary licensee and must fill out and sign the registration forms where required.  If there is not a secondary licensee an Extra Vehicle Pass is included with at no charge.

Title:  If the unit title is held by the bank, the make, model and VIN must be on the License Application.  If the unit title is held by the licensee(s) a copy of the original trailer title must be on file with Fish Lake Beach.  If the title is not in the licensees name, the licensee must apply for a title change and the updated title supplied to the registration office.

Passes:  The license includes up to 2 vehicle passes for vehicles owned and driven by the primary licensee as well as vehicle passes for the licensee(s) Unmarried Children 25 or Under That Reside At The Licensee(s) Home and up to 2 vehicle passes for vehicles owned and driven by the secondary licensee.

Trailer/Unit Insurance  Licensees must carry trailer insurance. Biglow insurance provides policies to many of our existing seasonal licensees.
