Kennekuk Cove County Park Reviews & Ratings
Kennekuk is a great park. There is so much to do here. Cook outside, trails, fishing, hiking, biking. It is kid friendly. They have a bathroom with plumbing (by the train car). Its a great place to spend the day
It was beautiful and amazing. I loved the trails. The paths where very noticeable. Spent a little time there just wish we had more time.
This is a very nice place to go visit or camping. Love it
I’ve hiked the Lake Mingo Trail a few times now and I’ve enjoyed it every time. It is pretty long (7 miles) and a bit challenging at times. There can be a lot of really muddy/wet spots. The last mile or so of the trail is pretty weird as it circled back to the start but still one of my favorite hikes in central IL. There isn’t really anything else of interest in the park.
The Howl at the Moon Ultra Trail race is held here. Wonderful venue and the park is great.
