5 Reviews of Marshall State Fish and Wildlife Area
Rural

Busy rural highway is behind you, host let multiple sites get trashed. Fishing is great tho.

Depends on...

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.

Marshall SFWA

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.

Sweet Spot for an overnight

Grassy waterfront campsites, clean convenient restrooms, quiet, nice!

Small but 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.
