"No matter how many plans you make or how much in control you are, life is always winging it."
Here at The Experience LLC, we are able to offer you a lot of...well experience. After many summers at Lake of Egypt, we know everything won't always go as planned. Intro to Lake Life: a visit to the LOE should be about relaxation and embracing the moment. Luckily for everyone, Lake of Egypt and the surrounding area has a number of accommodations that are convenient and easily accessible to our visitors and local residents. Our map below contains several of the restaurants, lodging, marinas, gas stations, and stores we recommend or know may come in handy.

PYRAMID ACRES MARINA AT LAKE OF EGYPT
12057 Marina Road, Marion, IL 62959
With a renovated bar, large boat slips, a courtesy dock, weekend food trucks, hot appetizers, flat screen tv's, an outdoor pavilion, events, and live bands, Pyramid Acres Marina at the Lake of Egypt is easily a top favorite for us at The Experience LLC as well as most who visit the LOE. Located at the north end of the lake where it is easily accessible from the interstate and Marion, Pyramid Acres Marina is also the location of the Experience LLC's pontoon boat slips.
THE CROSS-EYED BEAR
You probably don't need to be convinced that a cold cocktail and tasty burger sounds pretty perfect after a long hot day on the lake. New to 2023, Mack's Lake of Egypt Marina added this already popular restaurant. Dock the pontoon, throw on the flip-flops, and walk over to their outdoor patio where you can eat, play a game of bags, and listen to live music.
DOLLAR GENERAL STORE
If you are wondering why we are spotlighting a Dollar General Store, you'll soon find out. It is guaranteed you'll arrive to the lake and discover at least one must have boating accessory was forgotten. No need to ruin the fun, because this DG has almost everything. Food, drinks, ice, sunblock, plastic tumblers with lids... and located conveniently across Lake of Egypt Road from Pyramid Acres Marina. That means its an easy stop before heading to the dock.
