Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish & Wildlife Area Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish & Wildlife Area (JEPC) is one of Illinois’ newest parks, and everything about it sparkles. The campgrounds are immaculate, the buildings clean and modern, and the trails well maintained. And JEPC is big—16,550 acres of rolling terrain—offering a beautiful mix of woods, prairie, lakes, and ponds, plenty to do, and camping options from the luxurious to the comfortably primitive.

Because JEPC covers such a huge area, there are various entrances, but the main one is from Ashland or Petersburg off Newmansville Road to the east. Go 1.4 miles from this entrance west to the office, turn left, and proceed less than 1 mile south to the main Prairie Lake Campground on the left. Stop here first to register with the campground host, where you can also purchase ice and firewood."
