Small and hidden right on the Illinois River. Received a free night of camping with a whole day of kayaking which is absolutely recommended. Not much to do here except camp and kayak but I will be going back.
morning breakfast after the glampout night provided by the staff good food and quite environment
had my first experience of a lit up kayak tour for fireworks
25 sites to choose from, they fill up fast on weekends so plan to make reservations early. the glampouts are a blast.
if you want a nice riverfront camp site this place is perfect. they also have kayak rentals available.
nice and peaceful morning
Camp sites are dotted next to the shore of the river, there’s kayak rentals, and there’s enough space for multiple tents on one site. If you forgot your tent they rent them out as well.
We loved this campsite! We stayed when there were not many people there so we had plenty of space but could see it getting crowded when it’s full. We brought our own kayaks and launched right from our campsite which was amazing but they rent kayaks for pretty cheap If you don’t have your own. there is a confluence across the river which is great to float on. The only bathrooms (port-a-potties) are at the entrance. They sell firewood but also let you pick up sticks in the area that are small- we didn’t need to buy firewood after gathering our own. Picnic table and firepit provided. Overall a great campground that the whole family loved.
I have my own kayak and the river here is so calm its awesome. My friends rented the dual kayaks ant they loved them. Great location great cover on hot days. Cant wait to go back
