Lodge Park Professional Review and Guide
"I have hiked and camped all over Illinois, and lived within 30 miles of Lodge Park for half of my life. I’ve even worked occasionally at Allerton Park, just 8 miles away. Yet until I began researching this book, I didn’t know this little gem of a campground existed. According to the ranger at this Piatt County Forest Preserve, most people don’t. Lodge Park encompasses only about 500 acres straddling the Sangamon River. It doesn’t have a Web site or offer a brochure or even a campground map. Visitors who stumble across it are often just as pleasantly surprised as I was."
--John Schirle, The Best in Tent Camping: Illinois (Menasha Ridge Press).
