MORE ABOUT THE ILLINIWEK FOREST PRESERVE
Illiniwek Forest Preserve offers family-friendly campsites, trails, fishing and scenic views of the Mississippi River. This 174-acre park allows for an assortment of activities and adventures. Some of the featured amenities include: 60 camping pads with water and electric hookups, 25 primitive camping pads, hiking and biking trails, a picnic shelter and playground, part of the Great River Trail, and Boat ramp access to the Mississippi River.
In the late 1940’s a well and water system, roads, and parking areas were installed in this forest preserve. Throughout the 1950’s other improvements were added and a caretaker’s dwelling was constructed. Both modern and primitive camping facilities were made available to park patrons in the 1960’s. A hillside scenic overlook was constructed in the 1980’s providing picturesque views of the Illiniwek Preserve and Mississippi River.
