Beautiful outdoor secluded camping, near the small towns of Anna-Jonesboro and Cobden, IL. Located also on Kratzinger Hollow Road is the famous Blue Boar Bar and Restaurant and close by is Dixie BBQ, Brickhouse Grill, Yellow Moon Cafe, and other restaurants to enjoy. Hicks Haven is also located in the heart of Southern Illinois Wine Trail. Several local wineries are hosting Solar Eclipse events. I am hosting a Total Solar Eclipse Paint Party on August 20, 2017 from 1:00-4:00 p.m at StarView Winery. I also have prints available of "Solar Eclipse at StarView" of a painting that I created for this unique event.

The vibe at Hicks Haven Solar Campsites
If you stayed here and have some insider info for us, let us know!
This was a fantastic opportunity to be close to the action, meet fun new people and enjoy a special corner of Illinois! This site was set up by the property owner specifically to host eclipse enthusiasts. While there was no water\electric on site, both were readily available nearby.
Vineyards are also abundant nearby, and one of the Lincoln-Douglas debate sites is close. Thete is no shortage of restaurants if cooking at camp is not desired. The hosts were even able to connect my wife up with the local 24 hour gym owner so she could work out.
Great, fun people and a unique experience...
