Camping Shawnee National Forest

Our Family has built this campground from the ground up in Vienna, IL. We found there is a need for more full hook up camping in Southern Illinois and Shawnee forest area. We hope you enjoy the progress of our campground. Being a new campground there will be many aspects of the campground that will need to grown in and fill in as time goes by. So our campground will get better year after year. Thank you for your support and for all the happy campers to come.  Shawnee Forest Campground Southern Illinois
