Just a short 8 miles south of Marion, at the intersection of Interstates 57 and 24, sits a wonderful lake with 93 miles of pristine shoreline called Lake of Egypt.  Providing a water source for the Southern Illinois Coop power station, Lake of Egypt provides year-round enjoyment for those who choose to call LOE home!  Lake of Egypt is the only lake in southern Illinois that provides residential development along its shoreline.  The lake is managed by the coop with shoreline easements providing full lake access to waterfront properties.

Many homes of various shapes, sizes and price ranges are available around the lake.  Some areas provide vacation rentals as well - to taste the good life, if only for a week!

Egyptian Hills Resort provides cabin-like homes and a large, covered pavillon for weddings and outdoor concerts all summer long.

The sunsets are wonders to behold and life on the lake is sure to hold as many wonderful views for you as well!  

Homes of all price ranges can be found around the Lake of Egypt.  Established neighborhoods in the core of the lake community and lovely new subdivisions around the peripheral of the lake provide an abundance of choices and prices to consider.
