Easy get away

Nice quiet place to get away. Large lake for boating and fishing. Sights are good sized for campers and pop-ups. Tent sites are a little sloped. Easy trails around the lake.

Tent and camper camp ground next to good state park

State park offers some good hiking and all season activities. Camp ground was quiet and clean.


The campground was very pretty, clean, and friendly staff. The bath houses were clean, the outhouses were not bad. Nice walking paths. Grills on the fire pits. I recommend not camping on the downside of the tent Hills. If there is rain you will be washed out.

Nice place to disconnect

This campground is very good. Water and Facilities are everywhere. Only one shower house.

Close to nature but close to everything else.

This is a nice state park. There are some decent hiking trails that are bike friendly. Nothing outrageous, really good to get out and put some miles on and great for kids learning to ride off pavement. The campground has some nice spacious sites in several different areas. There are pull-through sites for bigger rigs and grassy sites for tents. It's a good place to spend a couple nights. There is a decent fishing lake with canoe/kayak/paddle boat rentals. There is a separate lake with a beach, though you have to pay to use the beach.

The restaurant by the fishing lake has standard fare, but the ice cream is quite good.

Beautiful campground, but crowded on the weekends

The grounds were clean as well as the bathrooms. Well spaced campsites with bushes and trees in between to provide privacy. Although in the spring, the greenery was fairly thin. Quite a few large groups partying in the evening but quieted down around 10pm. Trail around the lake is well maintained.

Nice campground in one of Illinois’ largest state parks

This past weekend was our first visit to Rock Cut State Park and overall we enjoyed our stay and do plan Togo back! Our site (330) was a little more private ham most of the sites we say, so we advice you to pay attention when booking the site because some are in open fields with little to no privacy. The Park is just off I-90 interstate so while hiking we could hear freeway traffic! Overall it was a nice park with 2 lakes (1 is non motorized, the other is a no wake) that were great for fishing and kayaking!

Great spot close to home

We always make our first trip of the year to Rock Cut State Park. For us it's close to home, shopping and an RV dealership so it's pefect to "shake out" the camper and we can easily get anything we forgot or get stuff to repair anything that's not working. The park is very good sized with nice camping sites, pet friendly, loads of trails to hike and bike and a lake for quiet water sports, no motor boats allowed.

Nice park and campground

Normal Illinois state park. Not a lot of services but good size sites and peaceful. Lake with canoe rentals and fishing. Nice walking trails.

It’s one of our favorites

The park is nice. Close to town, has a nice beach large lake and pleasant vibe. They do lock the gates at 10pm so don’t expect to hangout in town past 10. Fun stuff to do is fishing, biking, seeing the town and visiting the racetrack.
