Any good places to swim in the Chicago area?
Flora and I live in a northwestern suburb of Chicago, and now that it's getting hot out she is getting more and more resistant to walking.
Flora LOVES to swim - if I let her, she'll swim for hours. Right now I let her swim (illegally) in a decent fishing pond in a local forest preserve, but I keep waiting for the day when she'll either step on a fish hook or I'll be fined by a park ranger.
Does anyone know of any nice clean swimming holes in my area? I'm willing to drive about 3 hours if it's really worth it. Flora just loves to swim, and it does my heart good watching her swim.
Dog parks with swimming pools are not good for us, as Flora is uncomfortable around other dogs.
Thanks for any suggestions.
