Great campground on Carlyle Lake, IL

Coles Creek is a nice, large campground located on Carlyle Lake in Illinois. It has full hook up, 50 amp sites with many located right on the water! Although not the most conveniently located campground to stores and restaurants, they are just a short 15 minute drive away.

  • Gorgeous sunset from waterfront site #24
  • Fishing near the campground
