Camp Wokanda is a former Boy Scout camp built in 1920s on Illinois River bluffs along the unnamed brook. The camp was acquired by Peoria Park District in 1990s. Currently camp lodge, dining hall, group cabins and tent camping areas can be rented for events or just to groups interested in a secluded close-to-nature gatherings.

Trailhead for Illinois River Bluff Trail is located by the main Camp Wokanda parking lot.

With the first section of Illinois River Bluff Trail there are almost 4 miles of trails in Camp Wokanda. Most of the trails connect different camp facilities, although Logging Road and Red Trails are purely for hiking. Some trails are mostly level, some go up the bluffs and down the hollows.

Park is open year round, either of two parking lots can be used, there are no fees or permits for hiking.
