  Need some tranquil time to relax? Or possibly an afternoon with the kids..without cell phones? Look no further than Kickapoo State Park! Kickapoo offers a wide array of free activities for all levels of nature lovers including hiking, biking, hunting, fishing, and wildlife watching. Kickapoo also offers 12 miles of single track mountain bike trails ranging from easy to technical, and it is one of the few state parks in Illinois that allows scuba diving with registration and proper certification.   Central Illinois winters can be tough at times, but they create wonderful opportunities for winter sports at Kickapoo as well including cross-country skiing, sledding, ice fishing and ice skating.   Kickapoo Landing offers additional recreational opportunities by allowing guests to rent canoes, kayaks, tubes, and paddleboats. They offer 8-mile and 13-mile canoe and kayak trips on the Middle Fork River, Illinois’ only National Scenic River, and tube trips cover 2-miles of the river and Clear Lake. Paddleboats, canoes, kayaks, and double kayaks can also be rented by the hour and used on Clear Lake which offers opportunities for exploring, wildlife viewing, and fishing. The Landing also offers dining options with dinner specials every weekend and live music on Tuesdays and Fridays throughout the summer!   Also on site is Thunder Wolf Trail
