Illinois Beach State Park Tour
It is probably not the most comfortable time of year to come to the Illinois Beach State Park to hang out but it does have its upside to be there in October. The cool 40 degree temps mean creating a big camp fire is more than just a cool visual. Each campsite comes with a fire pit with a grill top.
Another plus is the beautiful trees and quiet. There were around what looked like 50 to 60 people there on the weekend - during the week it dropped to about 25.
The beach must be nice during the warmer months but it sure was pretty.
