As you can tell by my user name I am an Illinois campground host. I will be hosting my fourth year at Johnson-Sauk Trail SRA, just 6 miles north of Kewanee, Il. There are 69 campsites with electric hookups. Sites 3 thru 31 are in 30+ foot pine trees, and 32 thru 72 are in a more open setting with board-leaf trees.
One of the most unique features of Johnson-Sauk Trail SRA is a large, round barn built in 1910 and located near the park entrance. The barn is available to be toured the 1st, 3rd and 5th Saturdays, May through October from 1 PM - 4 PM.
The Red Earth Café and Camper Store is open during the camping season. There is a 58-acre lake with a maximum depth of 21 feet with largemouth bass, crappie, bluegill, channel catfish and bullhead. Fishing is permitted by boat (electric trolling motor only) and along the shoreline.
It is a nice quite overnight stop on your way east or west along Interstate 80. The park is 6 miles south of Interstate 80.
Hope to see this season I will be there May, July, August, and September, not June.
