Explore State Parks

It isn’t often you find two amazing State Parks in one area. Henry County is home to both the Hennepin Canal Parkway State Park as well as Johnson-Sauk Trail State Recreation Area. Both feature relaxing scenery and are the definition of Illinois back roads. The Hennepin Canal is a 104-mile linear park with rustic views and plenty of places for hiking, biking, horseback riding, snowmobiling, canoeing, fishing and more. Johnson Park is made up of 1,365 acres and features many of the same activities the Hennepin does, but also includes one the most popular pheasant hunting sites in Illinois.
