Geography

The Village of Lakewood is located in McHenry County in the state of Illinois. The Village shares its boundaries with the City of Crystal Lake, Village of Lake in the Hills, Village of Huntley and City of Woodstock.

The Village covers just under 4 square miles (10 km2). There are about 650 acres (2.6 km2) of open space, which equals about 3/4 acre per household. There are 6 lakes, including Crystal Lake which is situated partially in the Village and partially in the City of Crystal Lake. The Village is home to two golf courses and several natural areas or wetlands, including the Kishwaukee Fen Nature Preserve. There are also a number of public and private parks and beaches within the Village, as well as walking and bicycle paths and permanent open spaces in the newer subdivisions. Lakewood's recreational areas are West Beach, Crystal Lake, and a number of parks that dot the area.

The Village of Lakewood is a friendly community providing residents with Quality Living in a Natural Setting. Historically restricted by deed, long ignored, the houses tend to be large because taxation standards make the lots costly as well as the last available lot for building being gone by 1970.

Small parks, beaches, and boat docks along Crystal Lake's South Shore are private and maintained for use by members of the Country Club Additions Property Owners Association (CCAPOA). This is a homeowners association-like entity for Lakewood houses from approximately Country Club Road (named for Crystal Lake Country Club just to the south) and extending to the south lakeshore. Roads in this lakeside area have decorative posts on the corner of streets intersecting Lake Shore Drive and are called "Gates", such as "Gate 7". The CCAPOA parks take their names from these gates, so a lakeside park would be called "Gate 7 beach" locally.

Lakewood is located at 42°13′26″N 88°22′18″W / 42.22389°N 88.37167°W / 42.22389; -88.37167 (42.223864, -88.371662)[1], immediately adjacent to Crystal Lake, Illinois.
