Shawnee Hills Wine Trail   The Southern tip of Illinois is one of the most established wine making regions in the Midwest. Connecting nine award-winning wineries along a 25-mile trail through the beautiful Shawnee National Forest is the Shawnee Hills Wine Trail. The group of wineries attracts more than 100,000 visitors each year. For an extended getaway in the heart of Illinois Wine Country, many of the wineries offer cozy bed and breakfasts and suites.
   
Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail   Winding through the swelling hills of Southeast Missouri, the Mississippi River Hills Wine Trail passes through some of the state’s most attractive countryside - fields and pastureland and stately stands of timber. Along the trail are four wineries, alike in that they all are family owned and operated, but each with its unique appeal, and offering a diversity of wines from dry and semi-dry to sweet and fruity. There’s something for everyone!
   
Campgrounds   The Mississippi River Meets the Ohio River Region of the Middle Mississippi River Valley offers campers a wide range of opportunities. Excellent full service public campgrounds in State Parks can be found at Giant City State Park in Illinois, Trail of Tears State Park in Missouri, and Columbus-Belmont State Park in Kentucky. Other public sites offer a range of services ranging from Class A facilities to primitive camping opportunities. There are also a number of private campgrounds throughout the region.
