  • My wife and I tent camped at site #311. The sites aren’t super private but are a nice size. The park was full since it was a beautiful weekend but we never felt cramped. We hiked 3 miles on a Saturday...  more »

  • While I have not camped or swam here, I can say that this park is pretty amazing. Dogs are welcome with you on the trails and there is even dog specific areas if you prefer. There are areas to cook out and picnic, there is a concession area as well. Hiking, for me, is the highlight. The trails aren't difficult and you can easily spend hours wandering around. There are marked trails for biking too. A nice place so close to home.
  • Absolutely wonderful place!! My family loved it, it's only about an hour drive from Chicago. Nice, clean and quiet. Plenty of grass, playgrounds for kids, convenience store and more. There's a lake so we rented kayak and canoe..my kids had a blast. I definitely reccomend this state park!
  • This is a wonderful place to take your kid/kids for a hike bikeride or fishing or to just play. You can bring your dog for a walk just make sure you pick up after him/her. This is a state park so no concealed carry is allowed here and no alcohol is allowed either. Camping here is fun if you can get a spot by the water. They also have stores for bait and food. Renting a boat/canoe was reasonably priced. Overall it is a very nice place to go.
  • A great gem nestled in along the State Line in Northern IL that most locals seem to know little about. A nice no-wake lake with decent fishing surrounded by numerous very nice trails, most easy for walking, biking and CC Skiing. A restaurant / bait shop / rental shop is located along the southern shore at the boat ramp The campground is very nice and located on the northern shore of the lake. It has ample spacing and very good greenery between most sights, with some being closer with little between them for those that prefer that sort of "coziness". The park and campground fill up during holiday weekends, but is mostly underutilized most of the rest of the year. Give it a try!
  • Great park! Great place to camp, especially if your not trying to ruff it too much. Showers could be better, get messy on holiday weekends, but i have seen worse, but they do get a hosing down once a day. It really is a beautiful park. Good hiking, canoes to rent, fishing, etc. One of our regular spots.
