Campsite is set in the woods adjacent to Somonauk Creek. It is very private, not visible from the road or from other ranch facilities.

The site includes a large in-ground fire pit, creek access for fishing and relaxing, picnic table, level campsite with room for 2-3 tents to accomodate larger groups.

Rancho Del Comienzo is located at the intersection of Somonauk Creek and the Fox River. 150+ years ago, it was a commonly used Native American encampment. Now it is the site fo Rancho Del Comienzo Hay and Horses. We ask that if you find an arrowhead that you respect the land and leave it where it lays.

Somonauk Creek is a known spawning ground of musky and other Illinois river fish. There is access to both the Fox River and Somonauk Creek for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and other water-activities!
