Mattoon is a city in Coles County, Illinois, United States. Get outdoors at Shades State Park and Shakamak State Park. Step off the beaten path and head to Camp Butler National Cemetery and Raccoon Lake State Recreation Area. Get out of town with these interesting Mattoon side-trips: Eversgerd’s Civil War Fort (in Germantown), Tuscan Hills Winery (in Effingham) and Neet Covered Bridge (in Rockville). There's lots more to do: stroll through Busey Woods, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Old Cathedral Church, trek along Lincoln Trail State Park, and steep yourself in history at Lincoln Log Cabin.
