Welcome to Fort Crevecoeur. We are a not-for-profit organization and privately owned park, funded by private donations, our campground, and special fundraising events. We are dedicated to the education and preservation of the French heritage of Central Illinois. Come browse our site, learn the history of Fort Crevecoeur, find out what is going on, and enjoy.

The area itself is comprised of 89 acres. On our grounds we have a park opened year round with limited access in the winter months, fully operational campground with water/electric/dump station, several hiking trails, two picnicking pavilions, and a play ground. Also, we have a large state nature preserve which surrounds the park, playing host to many native Illinois plants and animals.

Our full operational season runs from April 1st through October 31st, where one can enjoy a relaxing day at the park, visit the museum, get a taste of our rich history, and enjoy many other outdoor events. We have plenty of space to play host to your next wedding, family reunion, or group picnic. Our two pavilions are available for rent, for information on reserving one or both of the pavilions contact the park office.
