How far you want to go? Our group went to Chadwick ( Southern) MO at the beginning of March. Iowa has almost nothing and Illinois looks like all ATV parks( which I have never been to and didn't wanna risk a bad time).
They are really cool. Nothing like them around our area. Lots of climbing/ descending rocky hills, creek crossings and running on ridglines. There are some pics on my profile page. If I can be of any more help let me know.
They had a very nice looking RV park/ campground. We rented a house that was a little to far from the trails as it turned out. Only 15 miles away but took a good 35 minutes pulling atvs thru winding roads. There was a place very close that had cabin rentals. Cant recall the name of the place.
I go to chadwick almost every weekend if the weather is good. I bought my new 570 specifically for that place. tons of fun. All day riding and it never gets boring. Tons of water crossings (all shallow), waterfalls, creeks, crazy technical must have 4wd level climbs. its a good time. Cost is $8 per day, a pass gets zip tied to your handlebars. All trails are number marked to help you find your way around.
We brought our wives, who were new to ATV. They did pretty well. There were a few times we rode up, parked ours, walked down and rode theirs up. You can avoid they very difficult areas, but all trails have some difficult sections. Just stay on the green trails when possible.
