Where is the Illinois River Road?
Traversing both east and west sides of the Illinois River from Ottawa, 150 miles south to Havana, the Illinois River Road has spurs to the communities of Princeton and Canton. The Illinois River Road corridor has over 100 natural and historic sites and numerous unique communities located throughout its 10-county region.

The Scenic Byway is conveniently located between Chicago and St. Louis, but just far enough to get away from it all. So get off the beaten path and see what the Illinois River Road has in store for you!

Jubilee College State Park
13921 W. Route 150, Brimfield, IL 61517



Listing Photo Jubilee College State Park is a 3,200-acre facility situated in the Illinoisan drift-plan, replete with rolling topography and the meandering Jubilee Creek. Visitors may see deer, rabbits, squirrel, fox, coyote and raccoon throughout the forests, while the creek may offer glimpses of mink, muskrat and beaver or one of over 160 species of birds. With a large restored prairie, Dickcissel, Eastern Meadowlarks, and Henslows Sparrows may be seen. Within the large old growth forests, look for woodland warblers, vireos, and woodpeckers. With more than 160 species of birds sighted here this is a good base for birding the area. While swimming is prohibited in Jubilee Creek, anglers may be interested in the Smallmouth Bass, bluegill, catfish and carp that thrive in the creek. Campground facilities are open from April 15 to November 1, and an equestrian camping area serves as the point of origin for twenty-five miles of horseback riding and bike trails throughout the park. In winter the park also offers cross-country skiing and snowmobiling. While at the park, visit nearby Jubilee College State Historic Site, which was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1972.
