I have camped there 2-3 times. It has been a while now, but I believe there are 4 sites with tables and fire pits. There is a pit toilet, but no water. But if you drive a few miles North East there is a Illinois State Park, Cave in the Rock I think, and you can refill your water jugs/bladders…
Campground is smaller but the sites are spread out well, most have fire ring with grill stand and table, firewood available to gather onsite when I was there, vault toilets, right on the river so may be closed during flood seasons. Will be staying here again!
We drove down to camp here and found this campground closed. We walked in past the locked gate to scout it out and there was a line of debris left behind from when the river was higher.
There is a vault toilet and a simple loop setup to the campground. The road continues past camp to a marina…
