Williams Hill Pass OHV (Off Highway Vehicle) Park and Campground is a not for profit outdoor recreational park. Through private investment and grants from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources and Recreational Trails Program, Williams Hill Pass operates 27 miles of trails on 220 acres of field and forest. Sited on private property and surrounded by the Shawnee National Forest, Williams Hill Pass is located 9 miles southeast of Harrisburg, Illinois. Opened in 2001, Williams Hill Pass promotes the usage of off highway vehicles in a safe and family friendly environment. Riding opportunities for all ages and riding abilities include an aggressive and family trail system, children’s track, and mud pit. With scenic views and minutes away from southern Illinois’ most visited spots, Williams Hill Pass can accommodate overnight guests in the park’s cabins, RV sites equipped with 30v/50v electricity, water/dump station and primitive campsites, all strategically located for privacy and enjoyment. Williams Hill Pass is an ideal venue for outdoor gatherings of all sizes and is a well-known host of philanthropic events to help families in need.
In August of 1999, Jimi Williams, with the help of many friends, family members and volunteers, acquired property and began developing Williams Hill Pass. Her goal was to create the best family-oriented OHV park in the state of Illinois. Being introduced to the IDNR OHV grant program was clearly a gift from God and an opportunity of a lifetime.
Williams was raised at the foothill of Wamble Mountain in the hills of southeastern Illinois between the communities of Rudement and Herod. As a young child, her free time was spent trail riding on a Honda with her siblings and neighbors in the Shawnee National Forest, around Wamble Mountain and the Williams Hill Tower area. Williams enjoys primitive camping, ATV riding, sitting around a campfire and outdoor grilling.
