This is a secluded spot in the middle of a residential neighborhood in a town of 570 people. I love this little spot of land, it is like a sanctuary. It is open land surrounded by woods. We own a slice of the pond on the edge of the property. It is mostly fenced, private, gently rolling terrain, and quiet. Deer, racoon, opossum, fox, rabbits, squirrels, snakes, hawks, and bees are residents. I do have a beehive on the property. There is a bar/restaurant within walking distance and other restaurants and gas stations two miles away. Rend Lake is less than ten miles away offering biking, fishing, boating, walking, etc. The Shawnee National Forest lies less than an hour's driving distance to the south. The Shawnee is a jewel, offering hundreds of miles of hiking (River to River Trail), horseback riding, rock climbing, bike riding (Tunnel Hill Trail), caves, waterfalls, and natural wonders. Ferne Clyffe, Giant City Park, Little Grand Canyon, and Garden of the Gods lie within the Shawnee. I worked and hiked in the Forest and can provide maps and tips. Pitch your tent, build a fire in the rock fire pit, gaze at the stars and enjoy nature. There is a basic composting outhouse and outdoor shower for your use. I recently have had city water ran out to the property and there is a water spigot available for use.

The unfortunate reality is that my first night on the road was a stay at Enchanted Acres, and i say that only because it was about 95 degrees and the same percentage humidity when i arrived! I was camping inside my Subaru Outback, and despite having a great fan that moves lots of air, i simply could NOT get comfortable.

That said, the space itself is quite lovely and charming, and given better weather conditions i'm sure it would've been a stellar place.

Do ask for updated directions to the site, as it was difficult to locate.

All set up for the evening...

Very nice private property. The site is flat which allows for campers or tents.
