Back entrance directions (Not always open):
- Entering the back way is shorter (the way that I always go) but is poorly marked on the main road.
- The road is five miles from the turn off of Illinois Route 1. (And about 2 miles before the main entrance).
- One mile up the gravel road will lead to a T in the road. To your left is the back entrance of the park.
- Upon entering park follow the signs to the Campgrounds (will pass the Audubon Barn and Willow Creek Pond.) Go straight past the ranger station (Garage)  and the first campground sign. About 100 yards later turn left at the Group Campground sign. (If you come to the Meadow Lark Shelter you have gone too far.)
