Hickory Hollow is one of our favorite campgrounds. It’s near The Illinois Valley area in Utica, Illinois which is about 2 hours southwest from my home.
Our take along home is a 27′ Zinger travel trailer we purchased in 2011. We call it the ‘Farrell Dog Haus’ or when money is tight for the mortgage… I call it ‘Plan B’. Ha.
The Illinois Valley area has many unique geological features which set it apart from other Illinois geology. This area has a limestone base and the Illinois, Fox & Vermillion rivers all join up. Luckily, the truly beautiful areas are protected by having state forest IDNR (Illinois Department of Natural Resources) status.
More to come in another post about the Starved Rock State Park.
Enjoy the day & keep on planting!
