I Have currently started to build a wakeboarding lake in IL. the plans are the following 2,600' long 250' to 300' wide. Shooting for at least 12' deep.
I bought property that had an 8 acre lake on it . The plan is to be around 18 acres when finished.

I got a basic design and layout of the lake but it is based on information I collected for a ski lake. there is 3 or 4 ski lakes in the area but they are only 6' to 8' deep and they do not use them for a lot of wakeboarding.

We have drained the old lake and currently move about 10,000 yards of dirt (all silt out of previous lake). I am doing this myself with family and friends helping and it is going to take at least a year or two to build.

I was wondering if any has built or had anyone build them a wakeboard lake we also are trying to entertain the idea if wakesurfing on the lake also.

I am Looking to talk with people about bank designs and erosion control due to surf and wakeboard wakes.

Also water quality control due to the lake being surrounded by farm fields. There is a lot of field run off.
