Have an emergency?
In case of emergency, please call 911.
The board also asks that if possible, you also call the front gate (815-357-6420) to inform them of the incoming emergency support. This will allow us to attempt to get a guide to the front gate before the emergency vehicles arrive. We know our park can be tricky to navigate, and we want to help guide them to you as fast as possible.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I reserve guest camping?
How do I order a pump out and how long does it take to receive one?
For the pump out to be completed we recommend expecting a week to 10 days, but in most instances its much less. For upcoming busy weekends expect longer wait times so plan ahead.
What do I need to have a permit for?
Can I cut down trees on my lot or on common ground?
How do I get guest passes?
All visitors are required to show a Guest Pass at the front gate. Guest Passes are available for purchase during open hours at the Office for $4 or at the front gate for $8.
We enjoy the fact that Woodsmoke’s campground is remote and tucked away from anything you could consider populated. We can also appreciate that that can make it tricky for new campers to know where to go in the area for the basics. We hope the list below will help you to find stores and local area services to make your stay easier!
Woodsmoke Ranch is a short drive from several amazing National Parks, the Illinois River and all it has to offer, and other local attractions.
