Acquisition of about 16,000 acres of land from Southern Illinois University and the Campbell Pond makes this park Illinois' largest, with over 19,000 acres. Waterfowl hunting, wildlife viewing opportunities and more recreational activities are expected once the park expansion is complete. More than 500 acres of lakes make this park a hotbed for private fishing opportunities. Picnicking, horseback riding, hiking, small boating, hunting and camping are popular activities at this park.

The area offers 16.5 miles of trails that are open to horseback riding, hiking and mountain biking. In the future, an increase in trail length will be made.
