We went there to hike as this park was mentioned in "Second Edition Hiking Illinois" by Susan L. Post. We hiked the Ghost Dance Canyon trail, Pine Tree trail, Bluff trail, and Oak Tree trails. We also explored their campground and found paved sites and a swimming pool that was closed for the season. The park has many nice picnic areas, I wish we had packed a lunch.
A lot of the trails get washed out by water so if you are there in a wet season you could get your feet wet on the trails. Trails also cross creeks in several places without bridges.
The nature was beautiful and oh so quiet!
