Weinberg-King State Park
Weinberg-King State Fish and Wildlife Area is an area of rolling hills with a meandering creek in western Illinois. The 772-acre State Fish & Wildlife Area, donated to the state by Mrs. Gertrude K. Allen in 1968, provides opportunities for fishing, hunting and particularly horseback riding.
In the equestrian area, there is a campground open to equestrian campers. The campground has 19 electrical hook-ups and pads. There is also a non-electric campground available for all other non-equestrian campers.
Williams Creek contains bluegill, bullhead, channel catfish and smallmouth bass for bank fishermen. Three ponds are also available to fish in.
An old log cabin and covered bridge can be visited along the horse trails.
Horseback riders will find 30 miles of good trail through the Fish & Wildlife Area. Snowmobiling is allowed during the winter months.
Most of the Fish & Wildlife Area is available for upland game hunting in season. Consult the park ranger for information concerning shooting times and opening dates for various game.
