Hike Less Than A Mile To This Spectacular Waterfall Swimming Hole In Illinois

With hotter and humid weather upon us, it’s time to decide where to cool off. We could always stay indoors with the air conditioning but who wants to do that after being cooped up all winter? Lakes, rivers, pools, and water parks are also great options, but what about a short hike to a waterfall that spills right into a lovely little pool? If that sounds like a good idea to you, then make your way to Ferne Clyffe State Park in Goreville.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here: onlyinyourstate.com/nominate
