Mill Creek Park

Other Names

Mill Creek, Clark County, Sevenmile Creek

Last Known StatusOpen

Overlooking the western shores of Mill Creek Lake, this popular area offers three separate trail loops for all skill levels. An easy beginner loop is accessible right from the staging area, making it a convenient place for those learning to ride.

An Illinois DNR sticker, daily trail riding permit and a signed waiver are required to ride here, which can be obtained by visiting the Mill Creek Park gatehouse. Annual trail passes are available for an extra fee.

Please note that the ATV trails are located about 2.5 miles from the gatehouse/campground main entrance. There is no direct access to the trails, so if camping machines must be hauled to and from the staging area.
