Moderate temperatures and beautiful colors make fall the perfect time to take a road trip around Illinois. Just over an hour away from Lincoln, you’ll find two of the best parks in the area: Eagle Creek State Park and Wolf Creek State Park.
Eagle Creek State Park
Eagle Creek State Park sits on the coast of the picturesque Lake Shelbyville. You can do hike along the 250 miles of shoreline, go fishing with your family or tuck in for a sunny meal at one of the many picnic sites. If you want to stay for longer than a day, the area boasts 56 camping plots, complete with electricity, showers, fire blocks and more.
Wolf Creek State Park
Situated across Lake Shelbyville, Wolf Creek State Park is every bit as beautiful as its neighbor. You can bring the boat along for an afternoon of fishing or swimming, hike the nearby forest trails and observe local wildlife, such as deer.
If you’ve been looking for an outdoor adventure in Illinois to change things up and make the most of the season, these two sites are great choices in the area.
