Beautiful vistas and rolling terrain are the outstanding features of Burnidge Forest Preserve, one of the largest preserves in the system. Nearly 600 acres of rolling terrain contain a series of watersheds that filter into the Tyler Creek greenway. You’ll enjoy 9 miles of hiking trails here, including a 2.25-mile, multipurpose trail suitable for hiking, biking or equestrian use. You’ll also be able to view plants and wildlife in their natural habitats. There are also stocked fish ponds and a playground. Within Burnidge Forest Preserve is Paul Wolff Campground. The campground contains 89 improved, vehicle camp sites with 50-amp electrical service, water access, parking pad and fire ring. Improved camp sites are available to vehicles or tent campers. Each improved site is capable of handling a 50-foot motorhome. There are also 10 primitive, wooded sites for tent camping only, away from the main camping area. Primitive sites do not have electric service and are available weekends only, weather permitting.
