More Ways to Experience Paddling at The Forge

The Forge is located in the Heritage Quarries Recreation Area, home to seven beautiful quarry lakes that are perfect for exploring via kayak or canoe.  Adventurers are free to bring their own boats (paddle, oar, or electronic trolling motors only) and explore and enjoy any of the six quarries on the north side of the park.  Swimming is not permitted in the Heritage Quarries Recreation Area or The Forge: Lemont Quarries.
