Castle rock has been on our list to visit for some years now. Very nice area. Maybe this year with the jet boat vs the big boat for the first time. The level can fluctuate correct?

Castle rock can definitely fluctuate, it's not a terribly deep lake and has some shallow spots. Never an issue with DNR or speeds though, there are usually some big power boats on there whenever I'm out on the weekends

​​​​​​I can definitely see Madison lakes having issues with noise, the DNR is very active on mendota as well. See them constantly in people's faces, mostly about drinking and operating. Don't buy a house on the water if you are scared of V8 boats, that's the way I look at it

I also live in Illinois, but have a home about 20 minutes from Castle Rock. I usually launch at a restaurant/bar The Dirty Turtle. There is also a state park launch near. I am currently putting new engines, drives and transmissions in my Cig but hope to have it back in the water by August. If anyone is interested I would like meeting up.

Sweet deal! Dirty turtle is one of the better ramps, especially for larger boats. I have a place on the northeast side of the lake and use one of the smaller launches. August would work for me as well!
