Kendall County Illinois

Kendall County is located south of the Chicago area.  It is not near as densely populated as many other counties in the area.  The largest city is Joliet but it is also located inside of Will county which is kind of strange but we will believe what wikipedia has to say LOL.  The largest city that is entirely inside of Kendall county is Oswego.

Come out and enjoy Ellis House & Equestrian Centers the first Friday of each month (not available on 4th of July) for face painting, pony rides, good ol’ fashioned tractor hay rides, nature trails, bon-fire and board games. In addition, they offer summer camps for kids ($), Pony Birthday Parties ($) and of course riding lessons ($)

What a beauty practically in our own backyards. Enjoy the many hiking trails, have a picnic, do some local fishing boating (no gas motors), canoeing and canoe rentals, hunting and even camping.
