Wooded campsites. Beautiful trees in the fall. Good fishing. All in all a great park. One thing to note is that the non-reservable spots are a fair distance from the bath house so you may end up using a pit toilet.

Good place to visit. First time going so I didnt know the fishing spots too well, next time I know where to go fishing at. Still caught a nice size catfish nd some crawdads.

My boyfriend and I love this place year round! We fish in the summer. And enjoy renting the fishing boats and pontunes. We also like coming here to hike. Last year we saw a opossum on our hike. Today we saw hundreds of migrating sea gulls. Always a joy to come and spend the day at Shabbona Lake!
