This Park Travel Short is about Eldon Hazlet State Park on Carlyle Lake in Illinois. We visited in April of 2019. This State recreation area sits on the largest lake in the state and has one of the largest campgrounds in the state. We camped in the Illini Campground. There are 9.5 miles of hiking trails in the park. The campground has a camp store and a swimming pool.
