Beck’s Woods

Beck’s Wood’s is one of my favorite local destinations. A quiet campground perched on a hill southwest of Capron in McHenry County. The  first entrance off Pagels Rd. is easy to miss but if you continue on Pagles into town you will find a parking lot on your left.

As with most county parks there are restroom facilities but no showers.  Ample wood supply made camp set  up way too easy.

There is a convenience store in town, adequate for an overnight stay.
