I no longer go there... always windy and too many rollers to get a good ride.. unless it's near sunset or early early morning - but it's 2.5 hour ride for me... Illinois River - 25 minutes...

It was somewhat tongue in cheek. It's usually a spring/ fall destination for a ton o people I know. Used to be for me as well til I grabbed my place on a private lake. Majority of time the conditions were great for us. Clinton is always warm much like the River. God bless power plants and nuclear energy.

Tongue in cheek --- much safer than branch in cheek --- no

surfing should be banned

it seems like anytime we want to get a nice clean run on the tube some d-bag in a Malibu is always running parallel to the shore messing up the calm water

why can't they just go out to the middle of the lake and churn up the rough water

Go to where you have the picture saved, right click on it and click rotate clockwise. Unless you are doing this from your phone, then I don't have a clue.
