The Coal City Area Recreation Club #1 is a private non-profit organization that has been the focal point of recreation in the Coal City Area since the early 60’s.  The 1480 acre club was established from abandoned strip mines that were active in the early 1900s until the 1950s. 

With a primary focus on family activities, the lakes are well stocked each year for the big and small fisherman.  Camping is a major activity for families with sites that are primitive to those that include water, electricity, playgrounds and bath houses. You can also cruise down the lakes in your pontoon and hunt for fossils.  Along with a beautiful swimming beach, water skiing area, picnicking, scuba diving and bird watching the summers at the Coal City Area are bustling with activities.   During the winter months activities include hunting, ice fishing, ice skating and trap shooting. 

Currently, membership is restricted to those living within the Coal City School District.
