The Fulton County Camping & Recreation Area is made up of 440 acres which includes approximately 150 acres of water. All lakes in the area are strip-mined lakes with the exception of Little Sister Lake which is a natural creek-fed impoundment. The major lakes are managed by IDNR and are restocked yearly with channel catfish and largemouth bass. The lakes in the campground contain largemouth bass, channel catfish, bluegill, redear, and crappie. Lakes 3 & 4 contain muskie. Red Barn lake contains yellow perch. All fishing limit signs are located at each boat ramp. The information pavilion is located just inside the campground entrance which will provide you with maps and further helpful information.

The campground provides a shower house (Open May 1st to November 1st), sanitary dump station, dumpsters, trashcans throughout the area, and a fresh water pump for the convenience of our campers and guests. We do ask all campers and guests to please obey all speed limit signs and watch for children, geese, golf-carts, and such. Please feel free to fish off of any bank or from your boat. Docks around the lakes belong to seasonal campers. We ask you to please be respectful when using docks. If the campers are around, ask permission before use. Above all, pick up your trash and personal belongings.
