Goodenow is an unincorporated community near where the Calumet Expressway and Illinois Route 1 combine in Will County, Illinois, United States. It is in a semi-rural area with the closest town being Crete to the north and Beecher to the south. It is very wooded and contains many houses on wooded lots with a lot of land. The major industry was the now-closed Beecher Landfill which took in garbage from the Chicago metropolitan area. The area north of the landfill is being developed from a mix of houses, farmland and small business to a single large intermodal freight facility. To the east of the area is the 700-acre (2.8 km2) Goodenow Grove Nature Preserve. To the south, it is open farmlands for several miles until you get to the town of Beecher. The town lies on the Valparaiso Moraine and the small stream, Plum Creek, runs through the area.
