- Visitor Center- The Tri-County State Park Visitor Center provides a special window into the park's restoration story. An exhibit area containing photomurals and interactive displays highlights the prairie and the need to protect and restore this valuable ecosystem. A small theater features videos that tell the story of that land - from the glaciers that sculpted it to the settlers, farmers and developers who tamed it, to the individuals who now work to restore it. For more information, call the visitor center at (847) 429-4670.
Trails- More than five miles of trails wind through Tri-County State Park. These multipurpose trails meander through some of the park's most scenic areas and are ways for hikers, horseback riders, cyclists and cross-country skiers to see and enjoy the park. Picnicking- Visitors can take advantage of the picnicking opportunities available at Tri-County State Park, such as a reservable 50-person-capacity picnic shelter with a large grill. Ground fires are prohibited, but visitors may bring their own grills and dispose of coals in the hot-coal containers provided. For information on reserving the shelter, call (630) 933-7248.
Main Entrance is on the north side of Stearns Road west of Powis Road.
