About The Park
Walter and Karen Freeman, Owners
Extra-long and wide pull through RV sites, plus easy on and off the highway. Plenty of places to eat, ranging from independent local restaurants to major fast food chains. Or, settle in and have fresh hot food from the snack shack delivered directly to your site. Our park is located just 2 easy miles from the 19,000 acre Rend Lake (named as the 7th Wonder of Illinois) – with an abundance of recreational activities for people of all ages from boating and beaches, to wildlife demos at the visitor’s center. Our area of southern Illinois is known for great fishing, hunting, boating, bird watching opportunities and golf. Within minutes, you can be at one of several antique stores at the town square, tour our historic jail museum, or shop at the Artisans Shop and Art Gallery that include more than 25 categories of arts and crafts representing the work of Illinois’ finest artisans. A short 15-20 minute drive and you can watch minor league baseball; southern Illinois’ newest team, “The Miners”. Attend an event at the DuQuoin State Fair grounds, or go ATVing at Little Egypt Public OHV Recreational Area. Drive down to the Shawnee National Forest and hike at the Garden of the Gods for views you will never forget. Sample local wines or find special antiques as you follow the Southern Illinois Antique Trail. Stay with us and see the improvements we have made!
