About Ray Lake Forest Preserve
Ray Lake boasts three wetlands totaling 120 acres, 80 acres of woodlands with predominantly bur oak, hickory and cherry trees, and sprawling farm fields ready to be restored to prairie. Two peninsulas separate two large wetlands, and the upland area along the northeast side of the preserve offers a scenic overlook of all three wetlands.
