The Bayles Lake Auxiliary, Homeowners Association as well as residents supply year-round fun and entertainment such as chili cook-offs, bean bag tournaments, wine and cheese socials, live bands and karaoke on the water, bonfires, and the best 4th of July celebration with a fireworks display that is absolutely out of this world. With our state of the art pickleball courts, this highly sought after HOA Lake Community is surrounded by beautiful small towns and farm country. Just 30 minutes north of the University of Illinois in Champaign and 2 hours south of Chicago the residents here have found their piece of paradise.
