The Marion Elks Lake of Egypt property has onsite restrooms, water access, multiple pavilions, a small beach, picnic and cookout areas, playground equipment, a concrete stage for eclipse viewing equipment (with reservation) and a great view of the lake. There is a large open field perfect for eclipse viewing as well as some shaded areas to escape the summer heat. There is also a cell phone tower located directly across the street from the property. With hundreds of thousands of tourists expected in the area, cell phone towers are expected to be overloaded and having the tower so close means a better chance for a signal. We are located about half a mile from Dollar General and Triple e BBQ and 8.5 miles from Marion which has everything you could possible need for your visit. Contact us with any questions you may have and we will be happy to answer them.
