:) And thank you too :)

Lincoln Trail State Park, 2.25 miles south of Marshall, IL, is a nice quiet little park that would make a good central base camp. Terre Haute, IN has many MANY neat caches and there are more than 50 in a 15 mile radius in IL, too.

The State Parks in Illinois, frankly, are pretty poor in terms of access to geocaching. I would still go to Shabbona Lake, Starved Rock and Giant City -- they are great places to hang out and explore. You just won't be able to walk to more than 1 or 2 caches from anywhere in the park. Mark Twain in MO, Lake Monroe south of Bloomington, IN, and of course, the state parks in WI offer better caching opportunities, IMHO.

Jim Edgar-Panther Creek SP has 6 caches in the park.

Argyle Lake SP has 7 caches in the park.

Wineberg-King SP has 4 caches in the park.

Sangchris SP has 5 in the park.

The state parks/COE around Lake Shelbyville have a couple of dozen.

New Salem, while not an official state park but a historical site, has 7 in the park.

Do a search on the state park and then view the map. There are caches in quite a few of the state parks.

Red Hills State Park down by Summner has TONS of caches in it. You can almost make a day of it and never leave the park grounds. It's fairly spread out, so you might end up driving a time or two, but if you plan your hikes, you can park, do a handful, drive a short distance, do a handful, etc. And there is camping available.


The surrounding area has about a zillion caches as well. I spent an entire day down there last fall and barely scratched the surface.
