Strip mines were big in Southern Illinois. These strip hills have trails winding around the lakes that have been stocked with panfish. A quiet walk with little chance of crowds. The fishing is pretty good. Camping is pretty limited.

Surrounded by deer, turkey, racoons, geese and ducks. This peaceful look of recaptured land from the coal mines of long ago is great for the hunting type person.

We live close enough to the park to visit it frequently. There are some really good hiking trails so I'm not hesitant to take the kids. Beautiful park that is well run. Great fishing holes found throughout the park. No play area for the kids...More
