Horse Camping & Trails 85 Glen O. Jones Road
Equality, IL, 62934
618.276.4405

Saline County State Fish & Wildlife Area, five miles southeast of Equality in southeastern Illinois, was the site of springs and wells that furnished brine for one of the two salt works in the area. Today, although the springs and wells are not visible, the area primarily is a recreational site. The initial acquisition of 524 acres of land was made in 1959 by the state of Illinois and the total acreage now is 1,270 acres, including a beautiful 105-acre lake.

Camping

There is a large camping area for both tents and trailers. A trailer disposal is available, but electricity is not available. Campers must obtain a camping permit from site personnel when they arrive at the area.

Trails

Four hiking trails are designated - Lake, Cave Hill, River, and Wildlife Nature Trail. The total length is nine miles. The site has several miles of horse trails and a separate campground for riders and their horses is available.

Directions

To reach Saline County State Fish & Wildlife Area, take Rt. 13 East from Harrisburg, turn right onto Rt 142, travel 1 mile, turn right, drive 5 miles to the Park entrance. From Eldorado, go south on Rt. 142 approximately 7 miles, turn right just past the Saline County State Fish & Wildlife sign and travel 5 miles to the park. From the Ohio River bridge at Shawneetown, travel west on Rt. 13 to Rt. 142, turn left, drive 1 mile and turn right again just past the park sign and drive 5 miles on the blacktop to the park.
