If you search the Web for “Rend Lake” in southcentral Illinois, you’ll find a resort, a golf course, a college, a marina, and several large and usually crowded RV campgrounds. It doesn’t sound like the kind of place for a frugal tent camper hunting for more nature and fewer people. However, Wayne Fitzgerrell State Park offers an ideal little walk-in tent campground on a shaded point projecting into the lake. You’ll rarely find solitude there, but you can camp in relative peace and still take advantage of all the lake has to offer.
