With its woods, water and wildlife, Walnut Point State Park in east-central Illinois has it all - from fishing, hunting and camping to hiking, picnicking and cross-country skiing. The 59-acre, multi-fingered Walnut Point Lake is the focal point of the park with 6.3 miles of shoreline. It is stream fed and formed by an earthen dam located on the lake's Southern shore. Conveniently located within a few miles of Interstate 57, U.S. Highway 36 and Illinois Route 133, the 671-acre site is 20 miles northeast of Charleston.
Park attendance in 2012 was 102,110.
