Lake County is the farthest north-east county in the U.S. state of Illinois. A 2006 census estimated the population was 713,076. Its county seat is Waukegan[1]. According to the 2000 United States Census, Lake County is the 31st richest county by per-capita income. The county is part of the Chicago metropolitan area. Its lakefront communities from Lake Bluff south (including some in Cook County) are part of an area known as the North Shore, and are generally known for their affluence, with a few exceptions.

Originally part of McHenry County, the townships comprising Lake County were carved out into a separate county in 1839.

Lake County is also the location of Naval Station Great Lakes, which is the United States Navy's Headquarters Command for training, and their only recruit training center, located in the city of North Chicago.
