Walk Through 3,300 Acres Of Rock Formations At Illinois’ Garden Of The Gods Wilderness

At the opposite end of the state from Chicago and most of the Land of Lincoln’s other popular attractions, there is a recreational area in Herod, Illinois that is famous for its rock formations. While most of the state is flat, this region features some unique natural attractions you’ll have to see to believe.

Trails, campsites, and extraordinary views abound at this immaculate park. Scroll on for more details.
