The restaurant run by Duke’s in Three Oaks Recreation Area was the site of McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally’s fundraiser.
McHenry County State’s Attorney took his annual fundraiser to Duke’s new restaurant next to the smaller lake at Crystal Lake’s Three Oaks Recreation Area.
Vehicles came from the west and the north toward the $5 toll booth.
There was a traffic jam at the entrance of the park.
Crystal Lake collects a $5 parking fee for Three Oaks Recreational Area from non-residents.
To avoid the $5 parking fee for non-residents, I rode with a person with a Crystal Lake vehicle sticker.
McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally was out front of the restaurant greeting people.
The festivities were on the lower level.

An equipment sales area is on the parking level.
There were steep stairs, but also an elevator.
Skiers being pulled by cable around the course provided a diversion from political talk.
Out on the smaller lake visitors had entertainment in the skiers jumping over ramps.
Folks gathered around the outdoor bar to chat.
On the lower level there is seating and an outdoor bar.
