Pine Hills Campground is the place to go when exploring the Shawnee National Forest. Finding the campground can be difficult, but easy if you have a topographic atlas. It is located adjacent to Illinois largest wilderness complex, nothing significant on a grand scale, but a world away from the madness of Chicago at the opposite end of the state. It is between ILL routes 3 and 127 between Grand Tower and Trail of Tears state forest. I'm sorry to say I cannot share the best site in the campsround, but will probably find it yourself without much effort. It is at the back of the loop adjacent to the stream. I basically gave it away, but good
 
    hunting still! Actually, it can be difficult to find, but well worth the solitude. Good wildlife viewing in the area, especially near the LaRue Swamp area- many hawks can be seen in this perennial spring fed wetland. It is the Mississippi
 River Valley in a natural state- a remnant of it, at least. Says John Sarychoff
