Local Attractions

The Shawnee National Forest is highly valued by the residents of Illinois and surrounding states.  Although Illinois is the nation's 4th most populous state, and 24th largest in size, it ranks 48th in the amount of public land set aside.  The unique character of the landscape and abundant natural wonders make the Forest an oasis in the midst of intensive agricultural lands, and a destination vacation point for many city dwellers.

There is something for everyone just moments away from The Goddard Place!  Here are but a few of the many things for you to enjoy....
