Ferne Clyffe State Park, Goreville, IL



Another 150 mile drive, and the GPS behaved today. We finally found a little sunshine and are parked at another Illinois state park, Ferne Clyffe, near Goreville, IL. It’s a pleasant campground with lots of trees but the sites are more open, which we like. $20 a night for electric.

There are many miles of hiking trails, so we took the loop around the lake, and the Bluffs Trail on the ridge.


Lots of cypress knees along the lakeshore.


A cave,


ferns and moss on the rocks,


and an abrupt end to the Bluffs trail, due to us going the wrong way.


It’s a very pretty park and a nice place to spend the night.
