The Siloam Springs State Park is a state park, recreation area, and historic site in Clayton, Illinois. Deemed as one of the most beautiful parks in Illinois, the park is located just a few minutes out of Quincy.

The Siloam Springs State Park traces its roots back to the 1800s when it was originally a part of a ?military tract? or patches of land that are intended to be given away to combat veterans. In 1852, it was acquired by George Meyers for his service during the Black Hawk and Mexican Wars. The site became popular through the spring water in the area that was believed to be curative. It was named Siloam Springs after a bible reference. The site became a popular tourist destination after Meyers? death. It was acquired by the locals in the 1930s and was turned into a state recreation area.
