  • Potato Creek has turned out to be one of our favorite local places to ride bikes. Our bikes are hybrids, not a cruiser, not a mountain bike, closer to a street bike. The trail here is short but fun. I...  more »

  • Great place to stay. All of the campgrounds are extremely well maintained and there is electric for all the camp sites. The nature center is great and they have plenty of mountain bike trails and plenty of walking trails. The lake is awesome but if you plan to take a boat then watch out for the underwater treestumps they might break your prop. But overall it is a great place to go for camping and i forgot to mention they have bathrooms and showers with hot and cold water.
  • Nice state park. Love the wilderness. There isn't enough fishing areas and options though unless you have a boat. And I hate having to worry about water moccasins too. Kind of scary.
  • Lovely place. Pitched our tents in one of the campgrounds. Staff is hardworking, knowledgeable and friendly. Very impressed.
  • Wonderful for nature trails. Their beach is very clean. Only draw back is the swimming area is to shallow and not big enough. But on the bright side if your just bringing small children then it's perfect.
  • Couple things to do at the nature center, otherwise bring/rent a bike, or good trail or hiking shoes to stay busy... It is a nicely kept park and the cabins are just about the easiest way to go. The park is large and nothing is quickly accessible since the trails aren't easy to understand or find at some spots. Fishing is horrible from shore...but go 5 miles west of the entrance to the park on 4 then north from the stop light at 23 a short way and fish the Kankakee somewhere if you want to really catch fish. The park was fun, but I don't think I would go again for a long stay because it is overfished. Catch and release please...
