Illinois is known as the “Land of Lincoln,” and many sites around the state commemorate events from the life of the state’s most famous resident to reach the White House. Fifty years after Lincoln’s death, the state decided to mark the exact route traveled by Lincoln’s family when they moved from Kentucky to Illinois. Eventually the 1,000-mile Lincoln Trail was established, and the state park of the same name lies just west of the trail as it follows Illinois Route 1. Lincoln Trail State Park covers more than 1,000 acres of densely wooded hills and ravines around a U-shaped 146-acre lake. It’s a beautiful destination for hiking, boating, and fishing, and offers two very different campgrounds with some scenic tent-camping spots. Add some luxuries like an excellent shower house and a great restaurant, and it’s worth spending a relaxing weekend here.
