Have been visiting since its inception in 1970. Beautiful spot. Great hiking trails. Can walk around lake. 8 miles of rough terrain but good workout.

Great park that is off the beaten path that all the annoying Illinois people have not yet discovered. Good concession stand, shower facilities, clean spring feed lake, good fishing and great hiking.
