We Were Born From The Idea That Adventure, Like The Outdoors, Is For Everyone.

As an innovative leader in outdoor recreation, The Forge Adventure Parks offers unique year-round activities for adventurers of all ages and abilities everywhere we operate. We are a purpose-driven, people-first company that provides opportunities for our guests to experience elevated outdoor adventure.

We thrive on helping our guests test their personal boundaries while engaging with a passionate community of like-minded outdoor enthusiasts.

At Whalon Lake, we are delighted to share our love of kayaking and water sports with the community. Whalon Lake preserve is owned and managed by the Forest Preserve District of Will County. To learn more, visit

Once you've experienced Whalon Lake, come play with us at our other Chicagoland park, 10 short miles away: The Forge: Lemont Quarries!
