The trees shade the camping sites at Spring Creek Farm. The wood swing can be enjoyed by guests as they relax and enjoy the view. Birds frequent the property and you may be visited by our ginger male cat as he surveys his territory. Night skies are beautiful, and on clear nights the Milky Way is visible along with the Big Dipper and other constellations.  

There is an outdoor fire pit to cook meals, or you can use a low copper fire pit for campfire enjoyment. Parking is available on the campground for smaller cars. Please leave your campsite clean so no woodland creatures are harmed and the landscape is kept in a safe condition for the next camper.

The Composting Toilet (weather permitting) is available and plenty of potable water from our Spring-fed Well.  The Pretty Potty is available but must be kept inside the tent; it is made of wood and has a metal pot for liquid waste. The outhouse is a short walk from the campground. The Pretty Potty is a convenience for guests with ambulatory difficulties. Please note; there is only one so first come first served. 

We recycle in the country so please separate trash, paper, glass, and plastic into separate bags which can be left on the driveway when you leave.

Please let Dr. Wanona know if you'd like to join for a gentle flow yoga mat class, 30 or 60-minute massage, or a Permaculture Garden Tour.  Add a deeper experience to your stay at Spring Creek Farm!

This place was a wonderful getaway for a few days from Chicago. It's quiet, minus the road traffic and the hosts are amazing. If you have the chance to do the garden tour - DO IT. If you have a chance for a massage - DO ITTTT!!!!!! My partner had one and as a body work practitioner was very excited to see what this type of massage would do for her/to her - and she just RAVED about the healing properties of it all. We spent one day driving around and seeing some sights, lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and also a little place called Thriving Thistle in Apple River which was also a wholistic healing center/healthfood store/cafe - and it was amazing. If you wanna get away and enjoy good conversations and locations - this is your spot. Also - there just might be fire-dancing (no promises, but we were treated to an impromptu performance of fire spinning by their son- and it was awesome) A place full of solitude and surprise.

Had a pleasant stay at the Spring Creek Farm. Camping area is well shaded and fairly private. The ground was flat, soft, well drained, and grassy; excellent conditions for pitching a tent. Wanona and her husband were very relaxed, friendly and accommodating. They provided plenty of firewood and we had great fires both nights we were there. The wooded area nearby is full of song birds which was a wonderful sound to wake up to each morning. The area does have working farms nearby so there is some noise from trucks coming and going on the road. Also FYI the composting toilet is open air with a bit of lattice and pallets surrounding it for privacy. Personally, I think keeping it open to air is more pleasant and sanitary, but you are modest or require many creature comforts this may not be the site for you. Location is great place to explore the outdoors and also a great micro brewery run out of a farm is nearby.

No restroom no lake close

Response from Wanona, the Host, on September 9th, 2021

The restroom was built that weekend. Sorry for the delay. The STATE closed the lake to clean it and make new roads because it has been decades since it was renovated; I had no control over such things. It opened September 2021, but the lake itself may take a couple of years to fill back up. It is a good thing. Future generations will be able to enjoy a safer experience. When a camp site is listed as primitive that is exactly what it is; no toilet, but water is always flowing freely. There is a composting toilet now and it works just fine.

Wanona and her partner were amazing hosts. We highly recommend this site for anyone who loves the beauty of nature and a healing environment. We also enjoyed the medicinal garden tour, it provided a wealth of wisdom, as well. We would love to visit again.
