Blake Lowry Horse Campground

Litchfield, Illinois

Admin: Monica Joy

This is a newer campground opened in 2015 near Lake Lou Yeager in Litchfield. It has 25 sites with electric, picnic tables, a fire ring, and water at each site (though you will need to bring a y attachment for your hose as your water will be shared with the site next to you). There are posts to high line to. There is also a day parking area which can be used for primitive overflow camping. There is a bathroom and shower house. There are two trail heads leading right from camp to 25 miles of trails. The trails were not marked and it was tricky to figure out exactly where you were; although it was not difficult to find your way back to camp-the difficulty came in trying to get somewhere specific. There is a trail that goes all the way around Lake Litchfield, but the only way we were able to figure it out was through the detailed instructions from a local rider. This was our favorite trail though, and well-worth the effort to find! Trails are hilly and challenging making them very fun!
