Lake of the Woods is governed by a Home Owners Association made up of 12 board members selected by the association. The board meets the last Wednesday of each month and the annual members meeting is held the last Friday in February each year.


We organize several events in our neighborhood to help residents network more with each other and create a feeling of togetherness. If you are having a block party in your neighborhood or other function that you would like posted on this site, send the info using the contact form.



One of our biggest assets as a Lake of the Woods home owner is the lake. This forty acre lake is surfaced and spring fed with a depth of forty feet at the deepest. Fishing enthusiasts will enjoy catching several game fish. Swimmers will enjoy our sand beach and swimming area!

Lake of the Woods is a subdivision of approximately 350 homes in northern Peoria CountyIllinoisUnited States. It lies between the western bluff of the Illinois River valley and Illinois Route 40, near the northern city limits of Peoria.


The center of the neighborhood is a man-made lake covering approximately 40 acres (160,000 m2). The neighborhood is governed by the homeowners association.


Created by real estate developer Harold Jenn in the 1960s, Lake of the Woods was at the beginning of a decades-long population shift towards the north in Peoria, a trend that continues today.


The dividing line between Dunlap Community Unit School District 323 and Illinois Valley Central Unit District 321 runs through the subdivision. The subdivision lies within Medina Township, which supplies most of the governmental services.
