4 acres right on the creek when the water is low there is a huge beach you can even camp on! We own both sides of the creek don't worry about getting wet or using the beach on either side if accessible. You can fish the creek there are some deep holes on some bends and near the far bank that a good fisher can spot right away. There is a big fire pit and ring usually there is enough wood around the property to get a fire going(unless everything is soaked from rain). There is a gravel parking spot just off the road (you will see our "Camp here with HipCamp" sign) that has enough room for 5 cars or so and you can park in the grass along the edge of the property by the road. There is a 20 foot steep decent from the parking to the camping area if you choose that way down or you can walk 50 yards north from the parking spot and walk down the path to the right its much eaiser. That and the ramp going down to the creek are the only hills everywhere else is pretty much flat and wooded, but you can for the most part see your vehical from anywhere except the creek and the other side of course. There are picknit tables and some trash cans there as well. Also a nice walking path around the main camping area. I go down and mow and try and keep the flat areas clear. Sometimes the cars on the road can be loud at night but that's about all you gotta worry about on the wooded area but It is much quieter if you camp on the beach you can't hear the cars just loud frogs and bugs much nicer if you get the chance to camp down there. Have Fun!A nice 4 acre location with beach access and both sides of the creek are free to use. When the creek is low there is a huge beach you can camp right on. There is a fire pit seating and wood around the property for burning usually. There is parking for about 8 cars or maybe more if you get creative by the road. You can also ride dirt bikes and atvs around the property.

Kickapoo Creek Getaway
Rock hound site
Park right off the road near the hipcamp barcode sign. Killer agates and Jasper in the river shoals. Convenient to Peoria (check out the Riverwalk market).

Kickapoo Creek Getaway
Right next to a road but there is enough privacy to make it feel safe instead of annoying. We ended up camping on one of the wider paths under a mulberry tree and got to eat the berries that dropped on us the next morning :) Only had to talk to two girls who attempted to cut through the site to get to the creek but they were super friendly and understanding.
