Sam Brown Campground
Sam Brown Campground is centered around a large meadow that has a colorful history of the earlier miner and homesteader to the area. Trails are located throughout the area, as well, with options for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, and motorcylces, including Elkhorn Mine Jeep Road.
The size of this campground, and nature of the landscape, lends itself to large group camping, with 2 picnic shelters, and and amphitheater. The meadow is great for group activities, and is also a great place to wildlife watch: deer, elk, and a plethora of bird species frequent the area. Briggs Creek flows through the area before passing on to the Illinois River.
