The Giant Goose Ranch is one of the most unique family vacation destinations in the Midwest. It is a hybrid property somewhere between a campground, a sportsmans club, a vacation resort, a working ranch, and a private recreational farm. By combining all the best attributes of each type of property, along with the creativity and conservation of the Herman Brothers, we have the ultimate recipe for family fun, outdoor education and adventure. It will take a lifetime to explore everything the ranch has to offer!

The Giant Goose Ranch is currently 840 acres of land with over 275 acres of water. You and your family can enjoy exploring miles and miles of hiking and golf cart trails; relaxing at our 500’ swimming beach with sand volleyball courts; playing on our playgrounds with pavilion; feeding the chickens, horses, and ducks at the farm; picking sweet corn in the fields; fishing, kayaking, and canoeing on the water; stargazing and campfire making; and just plain having fun together outdoors.

On site we have a camping general store, bait shop, laundry, storage, and many other essential amenities to help your friends and family experience the great outdoors with ease! Along with all of the campfires to make, trails to hike, fish to catch, and swimming to do; we also have many family friendly activities planned each year! Some of the highlights each year are the July 4th Carnival with Fireworks, many Fish Fry's and Potluck Dinners, Church Services and Breakfasts, Fish Habitat Days, Family Crafts and Activities, Saturday Night Outdoor Movies, Volleyball Tournaments, Fishing Derbies, Charity Fundraisers and Educational Seminars.

Come and be our guest at the Giant Goose Ranch! We have several Deluxe Cabins available for rent by the night, the week, or even by the month! With this cabin rental, you get full access to the ranch to enjoy all the events, amenities, trails, pavilion, beach and fishing. This is an outdoor themed vacation for your whole family that will make memories to last a lifetime. You can bring your own boat, golf cart, or utv to really explore the ranch, but registration sticker fees do apply.

The property is gated entry only. Late check in by advanced reservation only.

Key Card is needed for re-entry.

About Justin Herman

Welcome to the Giant Goose Ranch! We are located 4 miles west of Canton, Illinois on the south side of Route 9. Conveniently close to the small town of Canton, but far enough from the big cities to see the stars in all their beauty!

The Giant Goose Ranch is owned and operated by the Herman 31 of us and counting! We are all very passionate about Fishing, Hunting, Camping, Working, Playing, Exploring, and most importantly spreading the news about our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ! The Giant Goose Ranch is an opportunity for us to share all our passions with you and your family!

Along with the Giant Goose Ranch, we also own and operate 3 local family businesses. Herman Brothers Lake and Land Management, Herman Brothers Realty, and Noah Herman Sons Builders. These businesses have been built through a lot of hard work and a huge focus on Personalized Customer Service. The experiences and expertise gained from both businesses have been the perfect recipe for turning the Giant Goose Ranch into the perfect getaway for not just our family, but your family as well!

Enjoyable place for the entire family

  • 4 of 5

We visited the Ranch for a long weekend of early spring fishing and fun. The staff were so welcoming and showed us the perfect spot to fish with our younger children. The kids enjoyed seeing the horses and feeding the chickens as well. The cabin was a perfect layout for our family of 5, and we enjoyed having the griddle to cook indoors as well as the charcoal grill and firepit outdoors. All bedding being provided was a very nice touch. (Bring extra towels if you are a large family, though.) The views of the lake and sunset were beautiful, and the cabin was such a cozy place to read a book in the late afternoon. Thank you for sharing your cabin with us.
