Winding river bottoms, gravel bars, overlooks, waterfalls, & 200+ year old oaks! Walk on the same untouched trails Native Americans took followed later by Civil War soldiers. We've been working hard to create the trails, views, and unique experiences for you to enjoy God's Creation only 10 minutes from a Walmart! Tired of camping next to people? With 60 acres for your enjoyment and gated entrance, you won’t see anyone else during your whole stay! 15 min from I-49 with Walmarts and gas stations even nearer keeps you close to town. You can choose from multiple campsites, but we will not book anyone else during your stay. Camp right next to the Illinois River under giant oaks, ash trees, and sycamores with a waterfall behind you and the river in front. Or move up the hill and enjoy the 10 mile view (when leaves are dropped) while watching the sunset. Seriously, it’s the best view west of Fayetteville. The deep shade of the campsite with the breeze coming over river keeps the space surprisingly cool even in extreme heat. Feeling fun? Camp in the old dirt mine with 10’ walls around you shaded by a massive pine growing in the center and oaks around the perimeter. Hiking trails have been cut for you to enjoy the property. Make sure to check out “Mini Hawksbill Crag”- a rocky outcropping hanging off the cliff side. Another fun trail leads you up a creek bed with multiple small waterfalls. A couple canoes and kayaks are available to float the river if you desire as an add on. You can go upstream easily in normal water flow! If you’re looking for fun family time with your kids, I will do whatever I can to help you during your stay to make lasting memories. We’re big believers in families enjoying the outdoors together! A truck can be driven to riverside campsite when dry or there is a 100 yard walk from a small parking area. More vehicles can be parked on top of hill which is 5 minute walk. There is a picnic table and fire pit at the riverside campsite. Bald Eagles are seen most days in the winter. Birders will also appreciate the feeder in the campsite. Fishing poles are available as an add on. You can bring your own too! Catch small mouth, large mouth, bream, crappie, catfish, gar, and carp/buffalo, but you’re competing with the neighborhood beaver so be on the lookout for him! Please release small mouth besides a legal keeper is 14" (6-7 year old fish!) and limit of 2. Rear wheeled drive vehicles should park at the parking area by old stable Absolutely no hunting wildlife or foraging mushrooms without prior approval.Tired of camping next to people?

Depending on your vehicle, there is a 5 minute walk to most available campsites from the parking area. 2 minute walk if you can drive over a 4" stumps and will stop at the stake in the road. UTV service available and recommended if you have a lot of gear. Please select add on for firewood if you’d like some at your site. I will have more than enough for each night’s stay. There is a picnic table and fire pit at the riverside campsite.

Please practice catch and release so future campers can enjoy. Plus, a legal keeper smallmouth at 14” is roughly a 7-8 year old fish! Free the fighter! Absolutely no hunting wildlife or foraging mushrooms.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ My experience camping on this beautiful site was nothing short of magical. From the moment we arrived, we were enveloped in the tranquility of nature. The campsite nestled by the breathtaking river was like something out of a postcard – serene, secluded, and utterly beautiful. Tyler, our gracious host, went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable and memorable. His hospitality was unmatched, making us feel welcome and at home from the get-go. His accommodating nature truly enhanced our camping experience. Fishing enthusiasts will be delighted by the abundance of fish in the river. We spent countless hours casting lines and reeling in our catches, each one a testament to the richness of the waters. What truly sets Tyler's land apart is its privacy. Surrounded by lush greenery and the soothing sounds of the river, we felt like we had our own little slice of paradise. It was the perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of daily life. If you're seeking a camping experience that combines natural beauty, tranquility, and exceptional hospitality, look no further than this camp site. I cannot recommend it highly enough and cannot wait to return for another unforgettable adventure.
