OUR STORY

Green River Oaks Camping Resort has been operating in Amboy, Illinois since the early 1970s.  Dennis and Nanette Gillan purchased the 130 acre campground in the fall of 2013 and together with their family are now in their sixth season.

 

The Gillans were frequent customers of the prior owners and saw the beauty and potential of the property.  Since making the purchase, they have done countless updates and upgrades to the property, buildings, amenities and services offered.  They continue to make investments in the park and the future of the resort.

GREEN RIVER RECREATION

We are located right along the Green River in Lee County, Illinois.  Many of our campers enjoy tubing, kayaking and rafting down the river.  In 2017, we began offering the rental of Corcls for use on the river.  The latest in small watercraft, the Corcl is a source of fun for the whole family!  Call ahead to reserve or stop in the store during your visit to get signed up.  

FISHING

Our own Lake St. George has been stocked with catfish, bass and blue gill for catch and release fishing.  A fishing license is not required for fishing on our private lake; however, if over the age of 16, you will be required to obtain a fishing license to fish on the Green River.
