Lakemoor Farms, The Meadows, and one other subdivision have created an influx of new homes in the area, which is prompting interest in retail and other city centers for the new residents. A new large store anchored strip mall has been planned and approved to open in two phases on the corner of Route 120 and U.S. Route 12.


Lakemoor borders Lily Lake, a glacial lake of approximately 89 acres (360,000 m2). A village park, with playground, basketball and volleyball courts, and a beach occupy its eastern shores, while a boat launch provides water access from IL-Rte 120. Boat motors are limited to under 10 horsepower, but a small electrical motor provides enough power for access anywhere on the lake. The lake is populated by largemouth bass (catch and release only), bluegill, crappie, carp, and perch.

The Fox River flows through the area, providing ample opportunity for summer and winter water sports.

Four state parks and six county conservation areas are nearby, including Moraine Hills State Park and the Volo Bog State Natural Area.


The Lake County portion of Lakemoor falls within the boundaries of several school districts, including McHenry Elementary School District #15, Big Hollow Elementary School District #38, Wauconda Unit School District #118, and Grant High School District #124. There are parochial schools in Wauconda and in Grant Township.
