About the property

Rend Lake Hunting and Fishing Cabin



The Original is our least expensive cabin, but it still quite comfortable. We may eventually get around to remodeling the cabin, but at this point we have decided to keep it “vintage” and “reasonably priced”. The cabin is not lacking anything you need at the lake. It has a comfortable queen bed, full bath with shower (shower is a bit small for a big big person) and combined living/dining/ and kitchen area. It goes without saying the cabin comes with everything including, cookware, dishware, range, microwave, coffee maker, flat-screen tv with satellite, recliner chairs and a sofa sleeper for a second guest. It also has a great little deck with a BBQ overlooking our fishing pond. And modern AC/Heat to make the temp just right no matter the season.


Sleeps 2 to 3. 1 queen bed and 1 small sofa sleeper. 1 inflatable bed is also provided if requested.

THE ORIGINAL CABIN (#3) at Coy & Wilma's Seasonal Campground - Rend Lake Cabin
average rating of 4.0 based on 2 reviews

Was upgraded to Cabin #2

  • 4 of 5

Was a little disappointed to see that the cabin was actually in the middle of a parking lot, surrounded by camper trailers, and gravel. Was hoping for a little more of a "Cabin" feel. The host however was very nice, and accommodating. We mentioned something about a place to roast hot dogs and marshmallows, and he set us up with a new fire ring from Rural King. Because of the vast amount of gravel around the "Cabin" though, the fire ring had to be placed a couple hundred feet away, and next to the campground's dumpster. A little inconvenient, but it worked I guess. I should also mention that we actually reserved a lesser quality cabin(#3), but was moved to a much nicer one(#2), at no additional cost. Not sure why, but definitely not complaining. Sadly, the window covers had to remain closed the entire stay, because the parking lot is just outside the bedroom window, and a camper trailer is just outside the living room window. All in all, we had a very enjoyable vacation at Rend Lake. The inside of the cabin was very nice, but do wish it had been in a different location within the campground.

The room had everything needed for a functional fishing or hunting trip. The water in shower was great and the heat was exceptional for this time of year. I would however recommend a new microwave and some slightly updated furniture in the kitchen the chairs were very fragile. All in all the stay was was good and I would recommend for an affordable getaway to Rend Lake.

Rend Lake is a relatively shallow lake and is quite popular and productive for both sport and commercial fisherman alike. At 18,900 acres, it is one of Illinois largest and best lakes for fishing Crappie, Channel Catfish and Hybrid Striped Bass and Bluegill. Fisherman have also started to talk about the opportunities for taking out large flathead catfish as well. Also, a commercial fishing program is conducted each winter which allows the general public to purchase fresh buffalo, carp and other commercial species.


Rend Lake has earned the reputation of being one of the best waterfowl hunting areas in the state for ducks and geese. The Rend Lake Hunting Preserve managed by the Rend Lake Conservancy district features dams located across the Big Muddy River and Casey Fork Creek. The upstream areas they impound, are planted to a variety of crops and flooded when mature for optimum waterfowl hunting. There are goose pits at Whistling Wings Access Area and staked locations throughout the Casey Fork Sub impoundment. There also are considerable acreages at high elevations that provide excellent habitat and opportunity for archery and firearm deer hunting. Another popular attraction is the annual controlled pheasant hunt held at Wayne Fitzgerald State Park.
