A well maintained and clean park. The trails are not very challenging. There is apparently a firing range nearby as we heard consistent gunshots. Not really what we wanted to hear when hiking.

A small state park with a nice short trail along the IL River. The trail is well maintained with gravel and easily accessible.

It's a nice small park, ideal for a family picnic. There's a deck with a nice view of the river, and a few easy trails.

It's a nice park, not a ton of hiking. Some nice overlooks of the Illinois River. There are Effigy Mounds to look at along a flat hike. These were made in the 20th century. Also, there is a live buffalo to see. If you're a cyclist, you could ride up from the Illinois and Michigan Canal Trail.
