The Lake Forest Club has earned a stellar reputation refined and strengthened over the last 58 years for its emphasis on fun and enrichment for our children and the nurturing of the family unit. Many of our members who first learned to swim at our Club now watch with joy as their own children do so in these very same waters. They burst with pride as their Jr. Sharks excel in area wide meets, doing so not only as skilled competitors, but with a welcome display of good sportsmanship. And it won’t be that long before these same children have families of their own and become members of The Lake Forest Club. And so the tradition lives on.

Why LFC?

Home to 300 families who put family first.

Family is why people love The Lake Forest Club. The friends you make become a part of your family. It’s the close knit, warm environment you will love.

Food and Friends. There are always fun events planned for kids & parents.
