The Big River State Forest is dedicated to conservation and sound forestry practices and is home to the 200-acre Oquawka Refuge which contains the region’s oldest pine plantation. Firebreaks and a fire tower afford breathtaking views. Partake in hiking, boating, fishing, horseback riding or a relaxing picnic. In winter, enjoy 30-miles of marked trails for snowmobiling.
