I was hiking the park with some friends (all senior citizens). We were walking on the road, because there was no path at that point. We were walking against traffic, as per state regulations, and a truck approached us. We walked to the side of...More
We live close so we use the park a couple times a year with our RV. The sites in Fox Den are well maintained and the bathroom is generally clean but could use some spider and bug removal. The only complaint I have is that...More
This place has only 2 good things, (1) restrooms are clean and, (2) the views are amazing. I give 3 starts because of the restrooms, but if you want to go to have a good time with friends and teenagers, this is not the place....More
This is a beautiful State Park. We stayed there two nights. Due to the budget issues of the State of Illinois, certain things are not being maintained as well as they should be. However, we did enjoy hiking some of the trails. We went on...More

According to the posted trail guides, the park contains approximately 6 miles of hiking and biking trails. That being said, the signs at the trail-heads are pretty worn out and in need of repair, so pick up a trail guide at the park entrance. The trails are very well marked, and several wide, well maintained trails make up the parks trail system.
Some of the best prairie hiking in the area. Lots of marshland views along the Badger and Gold Finch Trails, while the other trails have great forested routes. Great bird watching, if your looking for that.
Most of the trails pass through hidden picnic areas, so there is most often water available, along with camp type restroom facilities. BONUS: No admission fee is charged to get into the park, however campsite fees are charged for overnighters.
