Our Ranch was strip-mined in the 1930's and 40's. The coal veins ran very deep and once all the coal was stripped out of the ground, the 60-80' deep holes in the ground were left to fill up with water! These pits created some of the deepest lakes in the entire state of Illinois!

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 sportsman's 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!
