Lincoln Trail State Park

We have enjoyed staying at the campground in Lincoln Trail State Park near Marshall, Illinois.  The area is named after the trail Abraham Lincoln's family followed en route from Indiana to Illinois in 1831.

Within the 1023-acre park is the Lincoln Trail Lake which covers more than 146 acres and includes more than seven miles of thickly wooded shoreline. 

We especially enjoyed the views from the windows of our RV which was parked on a point overlooking the lake.
