  • From the bubbling creeks and steep ravines of Apple River Canyon in the northwest, to the spectacular vistas of Garden of the Gods in the Shawnee National Forest to the southeast, the state of Illinois offers an amazing range of natural beauty to enjoy. There are rivers to canoe, lakes to fish, trails to hike and bike, and plenty of quiet places to camp amidst the wild diversity of the Prairie State. The Best in Tent Camping: Illinois is an indispensable guide for the tent camper who wants to enjoy all this up close, for whom camping is not just overnight lodging, but an integral part of the whole outdoor experience. If you want to go to sleep on soft grass surrounded by woods (and not a concrete slab surrounded by RVs), and wake to the sound of birds (and not your neighbors boombox), this book is for you.
  • Features:
