BANNER MARSH – http://www.illinoispaddling.info/2015/09/banner-marsh-water-trail-project/


The Banner Marsh Canoe Trail was officially established in 2016 and is part of the Banner Marsh State Fish & Wildlife Area and is located approximately 25 miles southwest of Peoria on U.S. Route 24. It is protected from the Illinois River by a major levee. Teeming with fish and wildlife, Banner Marsh provides various outdoor activities, including hunting, fishing, boating, dog training, picnicking, wildlife observation and photography. Three public access areas lead into Banner Marsh, all of which have parking lots, boat ramps, restrooms and picnic areas. The only type of camping allowed at Banner Marsh is youth group camping. Nearby Rice Lake State Fish & Wildlife Area has camping facilities available.
