Just across the river is Mark Twain forest should be a good spot. also pretty close to you looks like a state park should be a good spot to never been there though.
If you still check this you are surrounded by Shawnee park and I know they are at giant city park I think its on the southeast side of Carbondale but its good hunting
Do you have any spots in Chicago that you can give up since not here anymore???

Otherwise Shawnee National Forest for morels and maitake is the best and also for boletes.
I've heard pyramid state park was pretty good , that's north of you in pickneyville, but all Shawnee is good!!
If you know your trees you'll find shrooms anywhere down there!!!! I'll live up in central illinois and nothing!! You
Southern illinois boys findin any!!!!
