Frakers Grove farm has been in my family since the 1980’s but the history of Frakers Grove dates back to 1828 when Michael Fraker arrived to this area and negotiated a peaceful settlement with the Indians and became the first settler in the North Eastern Knox County. His grave is located on the property, and it is estimated that there are 26 other graves of relatives and friends in the area. Camping on a 250 acre farm located in Western Illinois. There is a 1.5 Acre stocked lake and a small creek running through the property. There are some trails running through the property. Wildlife found on the property include: Deer, American River Otters, Beavers, Geese, Wood Ducks, Racoons, etc. 1 Walk-in Camp Sites & 1 Drive-In Site by the pond available, each with a fire ring and picnic table. We are testing out RV Camping as well, feed back is appreciated! Overall this is primitive wooded camping behind and around pond, the RV site is next to the polebarn. Guest WiFi is available near the buildings. We can aid in getting your tent and supplies to and from the campsite on check-in and check-out days with a side by side if requested. Effective 5/31/2023 we now have a Porta Potty available for our guests to use located up by the Pole Barn. With a late harvest this year, we are extending our camping season to October 15th. Please be aware that there may be harvest activities that are occurring during your stay. Please watch out for machinery and grain trucks. NOTE: This is an active farm; during the spring and fall there is more activity with heavy machinery. We also have Chickens and Pigs. In 2023 we are building a pasture to start our herd of cows, cow's should arrive in 2024.

Gem among gems
Not sure there is any other place on earth where you can most easily touch the stars at night. Amazing. Quiet, remote, peaceful, lots of birds, lots of open space. I felt safe. Mother Nature blessed me with rain on me in the morning, and I got stuck in the mud, but eventually go out when my old four wheel drive shifter finally worked. Aside from that, great experience, great and friendly host. But I think they also offer a site there with flat and firmer ground, if the forecast should call for rain. A gem among gems.

Illinois Quiet Spot
Awesome and secluded. If you want a good quiet spot then this is your place. Kinda out-of-way but worth it. Dennis, the host, was great and very responsive to requests as needed.

Dennis is a great host and this is a beautiful spot. My 10 y.o. son and I tent camped. Dennis went and pulled his picnic table from another spot and brought it over for us right away and brought some firewood, immediately. We had a super time floating around the pond in a solid flatbottom boat with plenty of good fishing, as well. It's a peaceful spot. Thanks Dennis!
