Video of Lithia Springs, IL from Michael M.
Lithia Springs access area on Lake Shelbyville, Illinois
Michael M.'s Review on The Dyrt:
▶︎ Great place for outdoors activities
The Lithia Springs recreation area near Shelbyville, IL. On Lake Shelbyville has so many things to offer. This is one of my favorite places on the lake for boating, swimming and group camping. There are 105 campsites and they fill up with reservations in the spring and summer months, I would recommend reserving a site on line at: ( .
The campground is run by the Corps of engineers, it is well cared for with clean shower houses and restrooms. There is a boat ramp, picnic areas, a small swimming beach and very nice lakeside campsites. Half the campsites have electric hookups and water near the sites, the other half now have full hookups and 50 amp service. It is recommended to fill your tanks as you enter so you won’t need to get water during your stay for the sites on the point, those do not have full hookups. I tent camp when I stay here now, but have camped here with a motorhome and filled up when I entered and dumped when I left for a long weekend.
All sites have picnic tables, fire rings with grates and most also have a lantern stand. Most sites have a decent amount of room between them and there are some buddy sites where you share a large table cooking area and park facing each other. There are flat areas for tents and you can have two tents as well as an RV on each site.
The marina here is great with boat gas, fishing equipment, bait, snacks and other items you might need in a pinch. They also rent fishing boats and pontoon boats so you can go on a boating excursion while camping here for a price.
There are also cabins and motel rooms with a kitchen near the park entrance if you have a desire for that kind of lodging. See the links below for that.

Large Sinkhole in Annutteliga Hammock at Withlacoochee State Forest
I found this large sinkhole off one of the trails. I liked climbing down into it there are some great views! This tract contains hilly pine ridges and karst features of the Brooksville Ridge including large sinks, small terrestrial caves, and limestone outcroppings. There are some nice trails to explore here. This is on the border of Hernando and Citrus Counties. If you want to get an idea of where this is check out my hike -
