Busy rural highway is behind you, host let multiple sites get trashed. Fishing is great tho.
This is a great site if you don’t mind a very busy rural highway right behind you. Very easy access to fishing. The host was non-existent I.e one site was completely trashed and they never made themselves known. If it wasn’t for the water access I probably would not have stayed here.
Went Friday 6/19. Made the mistake of not checking the weather and thought it was going to be nice enough to fish the whole next day, ended up storming. Great camping spot #10 very close to the Illinois river and great views. The host was like non-existent, the site by the vaulted bathrooms were trashed and right behind you is a very busy rural highway. Wouldn’t recommend if you have young kids.
Grassy waterfront campsites, clean convenient restrooms, quiet, nice!
Very small CG with maybe 10-15 sites. All electric hookup, Has dump station a little down the road.
Slough just behind you from the river, many boaters and blinds set up. You have to drive a bit to find the trails but they are nice trails. CG is right off the main road so you do hear a lot of traffic and I would be worried with small children moving around there. There are vault toilets, no sinks or showers.
There is a sportsman’s club around the area so you’ll hear a lot of gun shots, it’s public hunting land so watch what time of year you go out for hiking or boating. We hunt small game there and I know locals hunt deer and duck.
