Ol’ Time Wagon Rides a Fall Tradition at Sterne’s Woods

Tue August 14, 2018

Families and groups can celebrate autumn with a Crystal Lake Park District wagon-ride and good times around a campfire. The wagon ride takes you into Sterne's Woods, located north of Veteran Acres at 5617 Hillside Road. The truck drawn wagon ride takes up to 20 participants into the deep woods.  Afterwards, you will enjoy time around a campfire.  With groups of 21 to 40 participants, half the group will ride while the other half enjoys the campfire and vice versa.  Groups can supply food, such as snacks and items that can be cooked on a stick over a fire, but no alcohol is allowed. 


Please make reservations at least one week in advance at the Park District Administrative Office, located at One East Crystal Lake Avenue, Crystal Lake. Fees are due at that time. No refunds will be given for cancellations received on same day as wagon ride.  All participants must sign a waiver prior to the wagon ride.  For questions regarding wagon rides, contact Lindsey Pollina at (815) 459-0680, ext. 1210, lpollina@crystallakeparks.org.

Group rides are available September 25-November 12 (no reservations available for Monday, October 8)

Groups up to 20: One 45-minute ride, $100

Groups larger than 21-40: Two 30-minutes rides, $130



Don’t have a large group? No problem! We have the option to book as individual riders or families. Grab a few friends or your family and join us for a pre-planned ride. Please register all riders individually online and dress for the weather. Please note: family rides do not include a campfire.
