Last Known StatusOpen

Family owned since 1989, this full service private campground is located in the center of two separate trail systems that are divided by Highway 7. Moccasin Gap is located directly west of the campground and offers around 30+ miles of marked and looped trails. The eastern side (known locally as Illinois Bayou) has hundreds of miles of unmarked trails.

The property also offers day use parking for guests who are not staying overnight for a small fee. Please note that a Forest Service Permit is required to ride the Moccasin Gap trails, but is not required if riding the eastern trails. Permits can be purchased at the campground store.

The campground offers plenty of spacious sites and is big rig friendly. Amenities include RV hookups, cabin rentals, a convenience store, horse stables plus a café.

Other activities include canoeing, which is about 10 miles away. Shuttle arrangements can be made at the front desk.
