Gamber Cove was formed from an existing campground that went out of business in 1982. After a lot of legal hassle we purchased the
ground with the lakes from F & M Bank July 1984 and went into business. About one year later, after much indecision for a name, one of our members came up with the one we have now. After many
trials and errors, and years of improvements, we have what you see today- One of the finest recreational areas in the midwest!
Our Goal is to keep available to our members, excellent fishing lakes, safe and sanitary facilities, campsites, and recreational acreage that is not overcrowded and abused. Gamber Cove belongs to all the members in good standing, and with your help we can remain one of the finest recreational areas in Illinois!
