places to ride in Illinois?

Anyone have suggestions for places to ride in Illinois? I'm based out of central Illinois around Peoria.

Pickings are pretty slim around here. Private ground is about it. I'm lucky to have a little bit of farm land in the family to ride on. I live just south of the Quad Cities.

If you wanted to drive a bit there quite of few south of me and north of you.

First off right here in Rockford there is Rocky glenn which doesnt have a whole lot of trails for trail riding but has tons of Race track.
Then somewhere near chicago there is a place called The Cliffs and Ive never been there but Ive seen bumper stickers advertising the place.
Now going south there is Buffalo Pit shooting range just off I-39 at the Illinois River.
Ive been there on my CR250 and there is tons of hills and trails.
Now the last one might be the closest one to you and its in Attica Indiana just on the other side of the stateline and its called Badlands off road park. I went there with my 86 Honda 250r 3 wheeler and had a blast!! This is like one of the only places around that allows 3 wheelers.
You have probably heard of these places already but thought Id mention them if you havent.

thanks - heard a few other comments about how good the Indiana Badlands place was. Have to give it a try.

unless you like climbing big hills the badlands is not a place id recommend for actual 4 wheeling. I totally recommend Finger Lakes State Park near Columbia MO, that place has everything from mud, to 75 miles of actual trails, hundreds of lakes to drive in creeks to cross and play in hills. Its $5/ day to ride, they have a campground with electric and you are only 12 miles from Columbia to stay in a motel or go get some food. In my opinion Badlands is fine if you wanna climb big hills and play in the sand, but everyone can have fun at Finger Lakes. Check out there website, they also have a huge motocross track if you have any go fasts.
