10 Reviews of Kickapoo State Park
Great camping for out door enthusiasts

Campground is well maintained. Clean bathrooms. Large level sites. They offer great activities such as movies, float trips, kayaks, canoes, paddle boats. Snack shop on site. They also have live entertainment at times at the stage by the snack shop.

Wooded area with nice picnic spots. Newer playground equipment. Hiking trails. Lots of fishing areas.

Highly recommend this camp ground.

Average midwestern state campground

Several loops.  Tent loops are pretty much open fields.  We stayed in a loop with electrical hook up.  Sites are level and there are trees through out the campground.  Sites on the interior of the loop can be close to the one behind it so check your site carefully before you choose it.  Bathrooms are older but clean.  Shower does not allow for adjustment of water temperature.  Hiking trails are not well marked except for the mountain biking trails, which were well marked.

Keep it dry

Nice CG. No booze signs posted, take it serious! Watched a ranger evict and entire group late in the evening for drinking. They weren’t being rowdy but we’re breaking the rules. Nice place to canoe!

Great Trails and Paddling

Campground is super basic but the access to trails and paddling is amazing. This park is severely underfunded so don’t expect much for amenities. That said it’s a great place to setup for a weekend on the trails.

Well maintained. Lots of wildlife,deer,turkey.

Greattach hiking trails. 12 miles of Mountain Bike trails

kickapoo

depending on what you would like this campground has a little bit of everything. There are camp sites that are walk to for some more distance from others, a lot of close drive to spots, RV, and a lot of close boat camping sites. the park itself has a lot of trails to explore and a few lakes to fish at. it is also a local spot to tube.

Nearby race track

It’s a shame that this park is located so close to a motor speedway! The Saturday night tent camping ambience was ruined by the sound of cars rounding a track at high speeds from about 8-10 pm.

Before you book here, make sure the nearby speedway doesn’t have an event.

Cozy, rustic, but with some amenities

It’s the perfect mixture of rustic and convenient. Nice, wooded spaces and a small section of “primitive” walk-in sites. They have a trading post if your looking for a cold soda or ice cream, kayak and canoe rentals, shower house was nice and clean. It’s not so nice that it takes away the “camping” of it all, though!

So many activities in this state park

This Illinois State Park has a campground with 184 sites. Half are electric, with some of those being 50 amph. The tent area has 2 distinct area. One is a wooded walk-in area, which we recommend. 

There are 2 bathhouses with 2 toilet stalls and 2 shower stalls on each side. Water is located throughout the campground, plus at the dump area.

Many Ash trees were cut down throughout the campground in early 2018, but there are still some shaded sites.

The state park is full of fun family activities. This includes fishing, biking, hiking, picnicing, and canoeing/kayaking along the only National Scenic River in Illinois.

This state park is located just west of the Illinois-Indiana border off I-74. The campground is open year around.

First to Review
Convenient getaway

This is one of our go-to places. They have RV sites that vary in size and quality but we almost always go.for the primitive sites. Vault toilets and water are available and a shower building is just up the hill. Lots of wildlife and.close to hiking, biking, and fishing.
