This is such a special place! I parked in the shade near the creek and had total privacy. The horses came for an evening visit and I watched them from both sides of my tent. Shortly after dark, thousands of fireflies put on a show! Meredith was friendly and helpful. This camping spot was a manageable distance to downtown Chicago and my start or Route 66.

Meredith’s campsite was secluded in the woods providing us with complete privacy. We operate with solar so being off grid is no problem. We had a great stay and we would definitely return.

Fantastic location! What a great spot to get away. Not only a great camping spot and next to a wonderful stream but also loved having horses all around! Can’t say enough wonderful things about this location and our stay. 100% will be back and would encourage anyone considering this site to say YES!

This place was awesome! Meredith was easy to talk to,, we set up our camper on the lot and were the only ones there. So magical! The horses were there by our camper every night. We went out early morning Sunday before the sun rose to see them before they went in for the morning. Such a neat place to see, like around, and take pictures. The train trestle was beautiful! The train did come through but it only adds to the ambiance of things. I would highly recommend this place, it’s an experience our family will talk about forever.

My family and I will always remember this trip: the horses passing by our site free roaming in the evening and early morning going to and from the pasture, our dog frolicking in the creek, our adventurous horseback trail riding around the property, and a 3 mile hike at a Silver Springs State Park nearby! (The bathroom being a jaunt away at the barn and the train tracks being right overhead were not as exciting, but just added to the memories! 😜)

The site is primitive with no water, electric or bathroom. We had a nice view of the tree lined creek and We loved meeting the horses at night as they came down to the lower pasture for the night.
