just found this article on the Dyrt about state parks in Illinois. Do y’all agree? https://thedyrt.com/magazine/local/favorite-campgrounds-in-illinois/
Good choices for the top campgrounds in Illinois. Looked into Garden of the gods in southern Illinois. Can’t wait to go there. Found a great bike path in the area called Tunnel Hill. 50 miles long. I will incorporate that into the trip for sure.
