Voyageur Landing Forest Preserve
Once a private fishing camp, this preserve shares the popularity of all our river properties. Its natural features were mostly destroyed long ago. The primary function was a gravel pit to the west with the railroad bridge linking the two sides of the river. Sadly, the gravel pit was converted to a dump by the city of Elgin. The Forest Preserve property does not have any landfill under it. However, there is no way to expand the size of the preserve property.
Voyageur Landing is located on Frontage Road (Airport Road) via Route 31, along Fox River, below I-90 Tollway.
