This place is AWESOME! If you are looking for primitive camping in Illinois, it is second to none. I will definitely be going back for every camp outing I do in Illinois. Upon arriving, Katie met me in town and I followed her to the property I would be staying at. We walked through the gate and down a grassy road through the woods for about 200 yards before coming to a clearing. Beautiful. As I looked out over the pond I saw all sorts of wildlife (beavers, turtles, frogs, deer, etc). We headed south as she showed me a couple more good spots I could set up and pointed me in the direction of the river, which runs right along the property. Overall a perfect experience. Huge area all to yourself without having to worry about camping neighbors right next door like every other campsite. Me, girlfriend, nephew(5yo), and 2 dogs in case you were wondering.
