August and September are Perfect Months to Visit

August and September are perfect months to enjoy Heartland Lodge. With cool weather ahead guests will be taking advantage of all the outdoor activities around the lodge. It’s a perfect time to put on a sweatshirt as the sun goes down and take advantage of the cooler temperatures. 

Enjoy an ATV trail ride across some of the most scenic land in Illinois! We have rentals available or you can bring your own! ATV riding is one of the favorite activities for our guests. For more on our ATV riding click here.

Riding our horses is also a favorite among our guest. Step back in time and ride the same trail that the Carrolton Ridge Stage Coach took riders on many years ago. For more on our horseback riding click here.

Our sporting clays course is one that you will want to try if you are a beginner or an advance shooter. Our course was featured on the national tv show Pull. Its scenic to walk through and very fun to shoot. For more on our sporting clays click here.

Want to do all three? (ATV’s, horses and clays) Take advantage of our “Triple Play Deal”- Book one hour of ATV’s, horseback riding, and one round of clays for only $95/person (Save $15!) 

Don’t forget about the scenic hayride that stops at one of the most beautiful views of the Mississippi River Valley along with the evening bonfire. The cool weather will make both of these activities perfect to enjoy. Many times you will catch the most amazing sunset looking across the Mississippi River into the Missouri River Bluffs.

You can also just relax and sit outside your room with your favorite beverage on one of our decks and watch all the wildlife and world go by!

Heartland has gained a reputation for excellent dinning! Make sure you take advantage of the meals package when making your reservation!
