The Sportsman Club is a membership campground that is open to the public. Many of the sites are occupied by permanent or seasonal units but everything is well cared for. There isn’t reservation system - first come/first serve. The sites are not numbered so an employee with a golf cart guides you to your site. Letters are used to designate areas of the campground.
We were assigned a spot on one of the gravel pads but asked to move onto the grass to be in the shade. This is a very casual place so moving wasn’t a problem. Sites are either full hookup or electric only with water available at numerous faucets and one dump station. Campground 40.19988, -88.37438

Four lumber barons, pictured above, entertain museum visitors with a spirited conversation. They along with 11 more residents became millionaires. The museum has an extensive history of the lumber mills with many great photographs. Unfortunately the photographs are small and the displays have boring statistics and paragraphs of tiny text. This museum would be so much better with larger photographs and displays with descriptive titles and short paragraphs.
Equipment from the mills is on display. There’s also a work area where demonstrations are occasionally held.
