Red Bud Campground/Bell Smith Springs Recreation Area Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Red Bud is a small, quiet, primitive campground in Bell Smith Springs Recreation Area, off a gravel road in the Shawnee National Forest. It’s a great place for a relaxed getaway—but an even better base camp for exploring all the nearby superlative sites in the central Shawnee.
Clustered within a few miles of this campground you’ll find Illinois’ highest waterfall, tallest natural arch, and largest sandstone cave, all within what some consider the most beautiful part of the Shawnee."
