    Marshall State Fish and Wildlife Area Professional Guide

    Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

    "The appeal of this campground is its location right on Babb Slough, one of the many bottomland lakes that accompany the Illinois River in the middle of the state. Located next to an active highway, this campground is compact in size and partially shaded. The 6,000acre state fish and wildlife area hosts many wading birds and waterfowl. Needless to say, the campground fills up during waterfowl hunting season.

    Canoe campers with permits are invited to camp on the islands in the river. Immediately east of the campground, oak- and hickory-clad river bluffs rise up. Trails on the bluffs take hikers into the deep ravines. The north end of the campground hosts a small day-use picnicking area. The campground often floods in spring; call ahead to check on conditions before you visit."
