Johnson’s Sauk Trail State Park, five miles north of Kewanee, offers a scenic drive, camping sites, and a 58 acre lake within its 370 acres that features fishing and boating. The park has 10 to 15 miles of trails, ranging from ¼ mile to 1½ miles in length. There are 10 picnic areas - mostly around the lake - with tables and cooking stoves. Two of the picnic areas have shelters. Hunting is still a popular activity at the park. Johnson’s Sauk Trail State Park is one of the Department of Natural Resources popular controlled hunting sites, with pheasant being released daily during the statewide hunting season (closed Mondays and Tuesdays). A fee is charged. The park also allows hunters to pursue deer with a bow & arrow, plus dove and squirrel with shotgun only. Spring turkey hunting is by permit only.
