    Liberty, Illinois

    Siloam Springs State Park Campground, near Clayton, IL, is a gem for anyone looking to escape into nature. This place has a bit of everything, from tent and RV sites to cozy cabins. It's open year-round, so whether you're into summer hikes or winter camping, you're covered.

    One of the standout features here is the Red Oak Backpacking Trail. It's a bit of a workout, especially at the start, but the views and varied terrain make it worth the effort. If you're into hiking, you'll also enjoy the Hoot Owl Trail. Both trails are well-marked and offer a mix of flat areas, valleys, and creeks. Perfect for a day of exploration.

    Fishing and boating are also big draws. The lake is stocked with trout, and you can rent kayaks, canoes, and boats right on-site. If you're more into relaxing by the water, the lake's a great spot for that too. And for those who like a bit of comfort, the campground has electric hookups, showers, and toilets.

    Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. Just remember, they might have to carry their own gear if you're hitting the trails! There's also a camp store nearby for any last-minute supplies, and an Amish store close by for ice and other amenities.

    Overall, Siloam Springs offers a peaceful, scenic getaway with plenty of activities to keep you busy. Whether you're hiking, fishing, or just kicking back by the campfire, it's a spot that keeps folks coming back year after year.

    Augusta, Illinois

    Weinberg-King State Fish and Wildlife Area is an area of rolling hills with a meandering creek in western Illinois. The 772-acre site, including a 4-acre pond, is located in Schuyler County, 3 miles east of Augusta north of Route 101. Mrs. Gertrude K. Allen presented a deed for about 500 acres of what is now Weinberg-King SFWA land to the State of Illinois in May 1968. An additional 295 acres were later purchased by the Department of Natural Resources to expand the site.

      Lick Creek Unit - Upper Campground — Shimek State Forest

      2 Reviews
      Farmington, Iowa

      The Lick Creek Unit contains two nonmodern equestrian campgrounds with nonelectric campsites. Facilities include pit toilets, fire rings, picnic tables, gravel parking pads, water hydrants, hitching rails and shade for horses. There are also stalls for overnight stabling.

      Shimek State Forest is located in Lee and Van Buren Counties in southeast Iowa near the town of Farmington. Although the forest's original and most important function is to serve as an example of forest management for Iowas citizens, recreational opportunities abound in the forest. Visitors come from a wide area to hunt, fish, hike, ride the equestrian trails, mountain bike, camp, picnic, study nature and enjoy the outdoors. Visitors can expect to find oak-hickory forests and bottomland hardwood timber forests but will also find several areas where native prairie plants can be found and about 1,000 acres which have been planted to conifers. In this extremely varied habitat wildlife is abundant. Bring your camera or spotting scope! The forest is managed by the Iowa DNR Forestry Bureau and is comprised of five separate units with a total of 9,148 acres. The forest headquarters is located about one mile northeast of Farmington on county road J56. The four lakes in the Farmington and Donnellson Units are stocked with bass, channel catfish and panfish. There are no designated swimming areas. The entire forest is open to hiking and hunting (except in the camping areas).

      Normally a complex like the River Valley Lodge and Campground would begin with detailed drawings and blueprints but this one began with a dream and a concept! It would basically have been impossible to put the gentle flowing of the Des Moines River, the soaring of the eagles, the laid back atmosphere of Southeast Iowa, the glistening mirror finish of the quiet ponds, the beautiful sunsets, and the rustling of the giant cottonwoods on paper. Of course the detailed drawings and blueprints came later as required but Mother Nature had already provided the setting and Steve and Carolyn Kokjohn had provided the dream and concept.

      As you have no doubt guessed, the dream and concept are now a reality and the River Valley Lodge and Campground is ready for your enjoyment. The transition from dream and concept to reality did not come quick or easily. It was the result of the combined efforts of many talented individuals and hours of their labor that made it what it is today. To all of those individuals, Steve and Carolyn say "thank you......a job well done".

      The result of all this dreaming, planning, and hard work is a state of the art family oriented lodge and campground with a definite western atmosphere that will match, if not surpass, anything similar in the tri-state area. No matter if you are just a couple wanting a place to bring your horses, camp, and ride the many forested trails, a large group wanting to rent the beautiful lodge for some type of a get-together, or a horse group/organization that would like to rent the arena or even the complete campground, you will find that River Valley Lodge and Campground in Southeast Iowa is the place to go. Of course horses are not required and all campers are definitely welcome. Just remember that this complete complex is very flexible and adaptable thus we will make every attempt possible to meet your needs.
