High Knob Campground
Shawnee National Forest
During your down time and while you are not riding, there are several things to do in the surrounding area. You can swim at Pounds Hollow Lake, go hiking at Rim Rock, tour the scenery at Garden of the Gods. Cave-in-Rock state park is just a short drive away where you can explore the old river cave that was used by pirates, counter-fitters, and occasional outlaws. While at the river you may want to take a free ferry ride across to Amish country for a day of shopping at Yoder's, where bread, baked good and crafts are made daily.
If you want to venture out a bit further there are local winery's and a chocolate candy factory located in Dixon Springs. No trip would be complete without a visit to McKinney's, the largest western supply store in Southern Illinois. Its only a one hours drive to Paducah Ky to vist the quilt museum or the indoor flea market,,The town of Harrisburg is approximately 30 minutes away where many places to eat and shop can be found.
A new 8-line, 3 hour Zip Line Course has just been constructed in the area for an afternoon of summer fun!!
Besides trail riding, we offer turkey and deer hunting, spend your time searching for mushrooms in the forest, or take a hike on our trails with your favorite dog friend.
