Shale Lake is located at the corner of Washington Avenue and Williamson Avenue in Williamson, a one horse town (well actually about 18 horses) located just off of Interstate 55 between Livingston and Staunton Illinois.   

From the North
Take Exit 37 off of I-55 and turn right (West) toward Livingston.  Turn right on Livingston Avenue.  Go 1.9 miles north.  Livingston Avenue becomes Williamson Avenue.  Shale Lake is the last drive way on the right before Williamson Avenue turns west and heads out of town.

From the South
Easiest...  Take exit 37 off of I-55 and turn left (crossing over the Interstate) toward Livingston.  Turn right on Livingston Avenue.  Go 1.9 miles north.  Livingston Avenue becomes Williamson Avenue.  Shale Lake is the last drive way on the right before Williamson Avenue turns west and heads out of town.

Shortest.... Take Route 4 (exit 33 off of I-55) and turn left (crossing over the Interstate) going Northeast toward Staunton. Turn right on Old Route 16 (just past DeCamp Junction). Follow the Williamson signs.  Turn right again on Williamson Avenue.  Shale Lake is on the left as you enter Williamson. 

The Tasting Room is located in the Lower Barn.
