Is anyone else bothered by what is going on there? We tried to go for a walk in there and the parking lot is full of gay men having sex in the cars. Apparently this is why they sit there, pretending to read, etc. They are all meeting up there. No, I am not a homophobe. I would be just as disgusted if these were straight couples.

That property is actually in the city limits of Joliet. They patrol there about once every 10 years or so. It's been known for this type of behavior for years. Many will be walking through the woods and use the term, and I'm not joking, "Mushroom Hunting".

Is on St. Francis, between Gougar and Vine, close to Petals and Twigs. It's a bid wooded area, can't miss it.

If you are a male - Just back your car in, pretend like your reading a book and wait :)

If you are a female - Make sure the hubby isnt there :)

My boyfriend and I wanted to go check out the French Fort about a month ago. When we pulled up there was a fat man in his car eating a Mc Flurry, I was apprehensive about what the man was doing sitting in a secluded parking lot so I told my boyfriend to bring something to defend ourselves with. I gave to man a little wave, he immediately he drove off. We walked through the woods; saw the clearing, walked back and there was another old guy sitting in a new car. A minute later another man pulled in and gave us hard looks. I was starting to get freaked out but we stayed to read the boulders that had info on the fort, meanwhile the hostile fart stared and gave us hard looks. It took us about fifteen min to read through everything and the men just sat in the cars. So we left feeling dirty and decided to check out the green house which was closed so we drove past the Fort again and mysteriously no seniors in their car. I think they are fucking in the woods there is no way these old men can get it on in the backseat.
After this incident I heard similar stories, one being a father and his children witnessing some salad tossing. I’m sure the cops know of this behavior, I think it’s time that someone gets off their asses and put an end to it. The fort is a historical land mark, it was a educational/fun experience hopefully the hombres won’t detour visitors.

I spoke to a local police officer who stated that this kind of behavior is very common in forest preserves and wooded parks in Will county. It is not just an isolated 'event' in New Lenox. My family went to a park in Shorewood/West Joliet area and found the same situation...we quickly left.

It's also not just a Will County Forest preserve thing. It happens in forest preserves all over. It also happens at roadside rest stops and other isolated areas. Once again, the French Fort is in the City of Joliet. It is their area to patrol. I even think I saw a JPD car their once about 10 years ago. That's one of the reasons the fort is known as a flophouse for aged gays.

Joliet PD does not patrol this. This is the Will County Forest Preserve's jurisdiction. Call the WCFPD.
