Iroquois State Wildlife Area is situated in a low glacial outwash plain associated with the Kankakee River Valley that consists of marshlands, sand ridges and dunes. The area is located 2 miles north and 3 miles east of Beaverville, in the extreme northwest corner of Iroquois County, about 80 miles south of Chicago. The majority of the area, 2,000 acres, is managed as a public hunting area. The remainder of the area is a dedicated nature preserve. Nonconsumptive recreation in the form of hiking and nature study is available when the facility is closed for hunting.
Facilities include picnicking, hiking, archery, hand-trap range, dog training, a concession during hunting season, and winter activities when weather permits (cross-country skiing and snowmobiling).
