Rantoul IL

The village of Rantoul, originally known as “Rantoul Station”, was officially established in 1862.  In 1917, Rantoul was chosen by the United States Army to build the site of Chanute Field, a training camp during World War I, because of its short distance from the Illinois Central Railroad and the University of Illinois. At the time, the university served as the war department’s ground school.  This boosted the economy in town due to the number of servicemen that were stationed in Rantoul to train young recruits.


Rantoul Illinois Parks and Recreation

There are many well – kept parks in Rantoul that offer amenities such as athletic fields and courts, handicapped playgrounds, bike trails, picnic areas, skateboard parks, fishing, and pavilions.  The park district also has a campground, featuring 95 fully – equipped sites that include water and electricity. There are also nine miles of biking and running paths run through the village and connect to the campground and many of the parks. On hot summer days, residents can take advantage of Hap Parker Family Aquatic Center, a zero-depth pool that provides fun for the entire family.

Rantoul is home to the famous Hardy's Reindeer Ranch.  Opened in 1995, the Hardy family acquired reindeer in order to build sales on their Christmas tree farm.  Today, they have a tree farm on over 5 acres with 15 reindeer.  They have a year-round rustic gift shop and a barn to entertain guests for every kind of occasion.  Families can also partake in the “reindeer” tour and can first – hand interact with the animals on the farm.
