This campsite is on the bank adjacent to the Fox River and our 2 acres of registered CRP (Conservation) Grassland. Beautiful sunset views. Kayak or Canoe to this site from upstream!

The site includes river access for fishing and relaxing, 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.

The Fox River is known for catfishing, small mouth fishing, and boating/paddling. There is access to both the Fox River and Somonauk Creek for kayaking, canoeing, fishing and other water-activities!
