14lb walleye camping season opening weekend

Campers were getting walleye off the south causeway as another great fishing season commences

Wildlife paradise

Herons, Hawks, Turkey Vultures, and Eagles will make your boating trip a venture into one of the Midwests finest wildlife habitats.

Holidays are now three day minimum- memorial day, 4th July, and Labor Day will require three day fee of $45 minimum per person.

We are unable to chase people down who have not paid. On Labor day weekend if you come Friday, Saturday, or Sunday you will pay $45 per person even if you only spend Sunday night here. There will be no early check in fee with a holiday weekend and the gates remain open 7am until 11pm.

June, July, August, and September are now two day minimum regardless what day you come on a weekend.

People have continued to abuse our old policy, and single day camping will only happen in March, April, May, October and November. There will be early check in fees in those months without the two day minimum, but with the two day minimum months you will pay a flat two day camping fee regardless of what time you arrive

 

 
   

 

   
     
    We no longer rent kayaks and canoes, and you can contact TJs bait shop in Oregon for canoe rentals.  We no longer carry tubes for tubing, but you can get an inexpensive tube at the Wal Mart in Dixon.

Please stay on the gravel roads as much as possible when the ground is wet.  We will recover damage for vehicles who spin or damage the grass.  Please do not move picnic tables or firepits.  We have lost over 10k dollars of picnic tables in floods over the last 11 years because campers move the tethers and tie downs.

Our new check in procedure will have every vehicle driver scanning their Illinois driver's license, and then providing the full names of all passengers at registration.  Here is an example of the registration form which is on a computer in the registration tent which you will fill out.
