Lake Minear Beach is Lake County's premier member-supported beach with swimming in the summer, year-round fishing, and a schedule of fun events for members.

Located at 600 West Oak Spring Road in Libertyville, you’ll find fun and recreation for the whole family. You can play and swim in the refreshing spring-fed waters or just relax on the clean sandy beach. Our picnic area is equipped with several picnic tables and charcoal grills. Our concession stand is open daily and provides tasty treats and drinks for the family. Free Wi-Fi an a outdoor shower are available. The lake has been stocked with several pan fish so there’s plenty of good fishing, too. Watch for special events that are planned throughout the season like our Fishing Derby which will be held May 21st from 8:00am to 12:00pm.

Operated by the non-profit Libertyville Boat Club with the help of volunteers, the beach has been serving the community since 1957. It is a private lake that is supported solely by its members and at no cost to taxpayers. When you become a member, you’re helping to preserve the ecology of one of the most important natural resources of this community, and carrying on a tradition enjoyed by Lake County families for generations.
