Scout Camp Rd. and Salem Rd.
Stockton IL 61085
These areas allow hunting, hiking and fishing. No boating/biking. Please see postings/fact sheets at registration and sign in/out at visitor parking lots.
The vegetative cover is a mixture of steep timbered slopes and bluffs with grasslands, rowcrops, and hayfields predominate on ridge tops. The topography can be severe especially bordering the Apple River. This habitat should provide good hunting for squirrel, rabbit, turkey and deer. Habitat restoration consisting of hardwood and prairie plantings will be ongoing and should enhance future wildlife populations.
Hunting is allowed in the Salem Unit on either side of Salem Road within DNR boundaries. Also, within the Thompson Unit is a Nature Preserve where hunting is not allowed. Hunting is allowed within the registry reserve that surrounds the Nature Preserve.
