4 Reviews of Lincoln Trail State Park
I recommend staying at Plainview campground

This State Park has two campgrounds to choose from: Plainview and Lakeview. The sites at Plainview are nice, with plenty of room between each of the sites. Most of the campsites at this site also have decent shade. Bathhouses at Plainview were clean. The sites at Lakeview are less desirable as the campground is more cramped than Plainview and only a couple of the sites actually overlook the lake. Overall, I would recommend staying at Plainview.

Boat rentals at the lake are very reasonable and the bait/camp shop is nice. The restaurant has a nice atmosphere, the food was good and it was quick.

Overall a great place to camp and kayak. Nice fishing too but no swimming aloud at this lake.

Remote, in a good way

Lincoln Trails State Park is located near Marshall, Il just across the Indiana border. It is a quiet little area (at least when we visited) and made for a relaxing visit.

Two campground areas, Lakeside was closed (possibly due to season/standing water) showerhouses are closed November 1st through May 1. Otherwise there is full hookup available at Plainview and the sites are nice and flat. There is a nice fire ring to gather at in the campground and some room around your site for stuff. I like the outer sites, more privacy. Not that that was an issue in November. The on site restaurant was closed when we visited but sits right on the water. Would make for some nice views. We hiked, the trails were sometimes challenging to follow with the leaves on the ground . With no foliage there was a lot more to see of the topography and natural features. Nearby is the town of Marshall which offers some interesting history, artwork and painted lions, definitely worth a walkabout!

Super nice

2 different campgrounds to choose from within the park. Plainview has the shower house. A few low spots that hold water, so one has to pick their site accordingly! Very quiet!

First to Review
Very Nice

Nice and roomy, but alot of standing water. The mosquitoes will be bad later on in the season.
