Located just east of the Quad Cities, this former "Spirit In The Oaks" campground & adjoining acreage is for sale! Over 134 acres of campground, farmstead, small tillable parcels & an abundance of timberland, ready for your recreational opportunities. Overlooks 40 acre secluded Spirit Lake, and abuts Rock River, just North of Geneseo, IL. Neighbors to Antique Engine & Tractor Association's site. Easy access to Interstates #74, #88 & #80.
Formerly Shadow Lake campground, and most recently known as "Spirit in the Oaks", this site hosted many years of Native American Pow Wows. Perfect for fishing, canoeing, paddle boating & kayaking, this property offers a variety of native birds, as well as the migratory populations of the Mississippi and Rock River flyways. Nearly all of the campsites have lake views, with 11 sites having electrical meters & water line, 20 sites with meters, and over 50 tent sites. Pavilion with social area, registration and machine shop. Hasn't been actively used for commercial purposes for 10+ years, so there is some TLC & new infrastructure needed - but the views, birds & fish are still there,
Adjoining this former campground is approx 100 acres of an older farm site, complete with old farm home, hip-roofed barn & outbuildings. The hunting opportunities are endless - 25+ acres comprise a couple small hay fields, perfect for grooming into food plots. The balance of the land is heavy timber, which abuts the dike system that regulates the level of the Rock River, and thus the secluded Shadow Lake.
This is a perfect property to Xpedition Enterprises - to maximize the availability of food plots, groom for year round hunting. Property hasn't been actively hunted for some time. Co-listed with Brad Graham of United Country Land & Home Sales, Carlinville IL (217)825-7527
