Preview of Paul Wolff Forest Preserve
Elgin, Illinois, March 28, 2003

I took these photos while checking out Kane County's Paul Wolff Forest Preserve in Elgin. The forest preserve is located on Big Timber Road, about one mile west of Randall Road. Modern and primitive camping are available. There are two fishing ponds. Go here for more information.

Campground info.
Nice RV campsites with electric hookups.
This shelter can be reserved.
One "pod" of the shelter is fully enclosed.
Fireplace inside the enclosed "pod".
This is the road to the "primitive" sites.
The parking lot for the "primitive" sites. Water is available here in season. Furthest site is less than a quarter mile walk.
There are nineteen "primitive" sites. Each has a table and a fire pit. There is only one latrine for all sites. I cannot imagine that these sites fill up.
Another "primitive" site. There is a reasonable distance between each site.
