Fording Pine Creek by Richard Williams

In this photo you can see a white DNR Jeep fording(crossing) the creek at an intersection between the creek and the park road. This was taken at White Pines State Park halfway between Polo and Oregon Illinois. The water is only about 4-6 inches or so deep depending on how much rain there has been in the area. They do block the roads off when it is too deep however.

    Warm Greetings, Jokus

  • thank you!! i was kinda hoping a big 4×4 would go flying through the crossing, or at least fast enough to make a big splash and get a nice photo of it, but no dice .

    I’ve heard about that road where you have to cross the stream with your vehicle if you want to get further into the park. How did you like the park?

  • its a pretty nice park. ive been hiking and fishing there a few times and loved it. two of my friends were married at the park and another friend or two married at the wedding canyon across from the park. its pretty neat to be able to drive through the creek, i think there is 3 places that you can drive through it. as for the park itself, there are at least half a dozen trails with a few good overlooks. and a few that run along the creek and also cross the creek. all in all its a great park.
