    Overview

    Overview

    Blanding Landing is situated in a lush river valley on the east bank of the great Mississippi, just eight miles from Hanover, Illinois.

    Rich deposits of minerals line the landscape. In the early 19th century, miners from around the globe flocked to the area in search of wealth from minerals. This was the nation's first mineral rush, predating California's legendary Gold Rush.

    Natural Features:

    The campground sits on soft, flat grass - ideal for comfortable tent camping. The weather in this area runs from warm, humid summers to cool, dry falls.

    Thousands of years ago, Ice Age Glaciers divided and detoured around the northwest corner of Illinois. In their wake, islands of rugged hills remain. Today, the winding country roads are perfect for leisurely drives.

    Recreation:

    The Mississippi River draws crowds of anglers each year. The most popular species is the channel catfish. Bluegill, walleye, crappie and northern pike also live in these waters. Other activities include boating, picnicking and hunting.

    Facilities:

    All campsites are on grass and most have electric hookups. A playground, showers and pay phone are also available. Hardwood trees allow for natural shade in the area.

    Nearby Attractions:

    The town of Galena is 13 miles north, and attracts tourists for its quaint atmosphere, unique shops and historic buildings. Eighty-five percent of the buildings in the town are listed in the National Register of Historic Places.
