Pitch your tent in one of four widely spaced sites. Each site has enough room for multiple tents and includes a fire pit and picnic table. The sites are just a short walk from our shower/restroom facility. The fishing ponds are just a quarter mile walk from the campsites, and access to the numerous trails throughout our 940-acre property is directly from the campsites. While we have four designated sites, it is rare for all to be full, and likely that you'll be the only campers here most days. We are located in a very remote/rural part of Illinois in a county nestled between the Mississippi & Illinois Rivers, but only 75 miles north of downtown St. Louis. We have been included in John Shirle's "The Best in Tent Camping: Illinois."

This was gorgeous and secluded. It feels super secret and private. We saw maybe four cars the entire weekend, and were the only campers. Every once in a while a horse and rider would come by. Pristine bathrooms and great hiking, too!

Everything is donation-based, so be sure to bring some cash so you can pull your weight.

Thank you to McCully for sharing the land with campers.
