About the map
This map features major rivers, reservoirs, and lakes in Illinois. For example, Lake Shelbyville, Lake Springfield, and the Illinois River are major rivers and lakes. Other than Lake Michigan, Carlyle Lake is the largest and is located in south-central Illinois.
Illinois has a long shoreline with some of the most beautiful beaches on Lake Michigan. This large freshwater lake serves as a destination for fishing, swimming, and boating.
Three rivers form the boundaries for Illinois. It’s the Mississippi River that delineates a boundary with Missouri and Iowa. For the eastern boundary of Illinois, it’s the Ohio River and Wabash River that forms a boundary with Kentucky and Indiana. All rivers in Illinois flow into the Gulf of Mexico and Great Lakes.
