"Did you know people who go in caves are called spelunkers? Go spelunking today in Hardin County."



Hardin County is Illinois’ newest and largest Main Street community. This very rural community of small towns is also one of Illinois’ most beautiful spots. Nestled in the Shawnee National Forest, Hardin County is a wonderfully scenic getaway.

Outdoor adventures include hiking, jogging, golf and of course a visit to the Cave-in-Rock State Park. Hunting and fishing are also available. Take a picnic to the Glen O. Jones Lake and Conservation Area. It won’t disappoint.

For a truly unique experience go to the American Flourite Museum, dedicated entirely to Illinois’ official state mineral.

Join the whole county for outdoor movies on the river at the historic Rose Hotel in Elizabethtown.
