Stephen A. Forbes State Recreation Area Professional Review and Guide
"The Stephen A. Forbes State Recreation Area offers tent camping with some luxury and plenty of convenient recreation for families. The separate walk-in tent area gets you away from the busy main campground, but nearby you still have showers, swimming, boating, a restaurant, and even a small store. It doesn’t hurt that the park’s 585-acre lake is beautiful, with 18 miles of timbered shoreline and more than 1,100 acres of surrounding forest to explore if you want more nature and fewer people."
--John Schirle, The Best in Tent Camping: Illinois (Menasha Ridge Press).
