A wonderful campground on Lake Shelbyville!

An awesome campground on Lake Shelbyville with full amenities! A great place for family fun and camping.

Great campground!

Really nice campground on Clinton Lake. Has a really nice beach for swimming and picnics. Have about 20 nice full hook up spots and a bunch of electric sites. Our family spent a week there and loved it.

An awesome and family friendly campground!

A wonderful small campground with clean shower house. A great lake for fishing and kayaking. A hidden gem in central Illinois with a great little family owned restaurant. The staff and camp host are super friendly and helpful!

Very clean and family oriented.

My family camped here in a RV for 21 years till my step dad passed away. My friends and I camp here in a tent occasionally. I highly recommend this campground.

Basic, friendly hosts, clean, lots of RV's

We camped midweek in October. The hosts were very friendly and accommodating. The showers and bathrooms were clean. It was cold! We were in a camper van. We should have brought firewood, as firewood was only available at an exorbitant price for very few pieces. We were told that the campgrounds filled up on the weekends with fishermen.

Very peaceful camping,fishing, and kayaking

NNice lake for fishing and kayaking. Excellent restaurant on site also

Great place for rvs and tents alike

Lots of room, easy maneuvering for trailers/rvs, electric and water at each site; on site manager (at least in the summer) bery pretty lake

Nice big lots

Most of the sites are large with extra lawn area to set up games. This is a nice campground if you are looking for quiet time and not a lot of kids. They do not allow hover boards or motorized bikes of any kind on the roads. Kids were a little disappointed with that since they all have hover boards and they are allowed at all other campgrounds we have visited. Lots of deer in the golf course area. Campground was well kept. Internet reception was great.

Loved it!

Lake Shelbyville has everything: biking, hiking, a beach, fishing and the town has a small movie theater showing current movies for $4.00.

Great Place to Camp

Always a pleasant experience. The staff is extremely cordial and remembered us after the first visit.

Beautiful mature oaks abound

Plenty of shade. this is an older campground showing some of its age. The few full hook up sites are beautiful. Many of the other sites are out of level. All the site are pretty close to the water.

Many of the campers also have boats here that they anchor right by their sites

Nice State Park

we have come here several major holiday weekends and had no issues with the packed campground. showers we're warm and welcome. Made lots of friends and grandkids had a ball with other kids. campground is clean, flush and pit toilets. Hosts were always helpful.

A place of memories

One of the first campgrounds I ever went to and when camping in Illinois, my go-to campground and lake. My wife and I love this lake and have a lot of memories here.

nice campground

the keepers are super friendly and accommodating. most lots are spacious. my only complaint would be that the trash dumpsters are too far away from the camping areas.

always a good time!

plenty to do! relax, fish, swim

Fish and Relax

This is a great little place to go fishing and just spend some time relaxing. Deer Run is mostly trailers and RVs, but can easily accommodate tent campers, and is less crowded than Hickory Point. The campground hosts are very friendly and helpful. The lake and surrounding area is beautiful!

Fabulous

This campground is very well kept. Beautiful setting and delightful people that run it. Wow. Need to get back.

Clean park

Lots of equestrian parking and camping flush toilets neat trails very swell nice better if s en during the fall. Fishing and boatibg here as well.

Pluses and minuses

Large lots are nice, out houses need cleaned. Good rates but the kicker is the $20.00 fee per boat/ kayak to get on the lake plus the fee for the swimming area was a bit much for us. Was planning an active weekend but quickly realized we were going to be sitting at our site

Great Fishing Lake

Not a lot to do with littles though. It does have a great play area but nothing else for kids. Good shower houses. Surrounded by nothing but trees and stars.

Good time

Sites arent crazy on top of one another… but quiet and family friendly. May not be suitable for some large RVs as saw some motorcoach and 5th wheel struggle. Decent bathhouse and boat ramp for lake access. Great lake to kayak at. Hosts were very nice.. had family movie Saturday night.

Not too shabby.

Sites were decent. Lack of flushing toilets and bathhouse is why I knocked it down a few. Outhouse was passable but a bathhouse would go a long way to upgrading the facility. Playground was great for kiddos. Hosts were nice and fairly helpful.

Peaceful, spacious sites and warm lake!

You wIll defInItely want to bring a suit. The lake is surprisingly warm. No dogs allowed on the beach. The sites were spacious, and ours had a path to the lake. Filled with poison ivy, etc, so long pants recommended when waking thru. Hiking path all around the shore of the lake. Some hidden fishing areas but we didn’t have any luck.

Camping with Friends July 17, 2015

The campground offers electric and non-electric. We were camping next to friends and the electrical area didn't offer much in the way of privacy between neighbors.

There are regular and handicapped showers. Also a small playground for the kiddos. There is a beach within walking distance if you like to hike or drive by car. The beach wasn't kept up on cleanliness as it was covered in spots with geese droppings. The campground also has some hiking trails and fishing.

The camp hosts are very nice and allowed us to pick another camp site spot due to severe rain storms that hit a few days before.

If you like vandalism...

Low price. Nice site managers. LOTS of graffiti. AC in cabin only cools front room

Great Campground Near Lake Shelbyville

There are many sites on this campground that are wooded and have views of Lake Shelbyville. Boat ramp to put in your boat or kayaks and sand beach for the kids to go swimming. We had the spot right on the end by the lake. What a beautiful site! Some sites you can reserve and some are walk in only. Call ahead. Also has camp store just outside campground in case you need something or the kids want a frozen treat! Due to proximity to water and amount of shade, this is my favorite campground.

Moraine View beautiful long walk

I visited this campground for the hiking. I never did all of the trails but spent an afternoon hiking with a friend last summer. Not going to lie we did get lost due to lack of proper signage but it all worked out when we found the equestrian trail. Beautiful walks through the trees and great campsites. Super cool but most sites are a hike to get there since they are in the woods. Small boat and kayak rentals are available here for fun in the daytime along with a great little food shack you can eat either inside or outside. Great spots to fish away from the open, very large lake. Would recommend attending this park for a day.

Comlara park, open with nice calm waters

This park is mainly flat grounds. Camping plots are very open with options very close to the water. You can rent boats and kayaks to take out on the lake during the day and grills throughout the park to have a bbq at night with friends. There are a few playgrounds for the kids to stay busy as well as small marked trails to follow. Not too populated. I rate this a 4 star because it is not close to food and the nearest gas station is about 10 minutes away. I also prefer longer trails and a rougher terrain with options for camping in the trees. Over all nice place

Perfectly primitive, idyllic environment

Love, love, love this primitive campground! It has well-maintained walk-in primitive sites. The sites are close to the water for fishing, bathrooms are kept fairly clean, sites are spaced out enough to not feel crowded and it’s alsays been pretty quiet when we’ve gone.

This is a basic, no frills, camping experience.

Quiet Basic Campground

We have camped at this basic Illinois State Campground 3 times. It's a quiet campground with all the basics. Each site has electricity, a fire pit, and a picnic table. There is a bathhouse with a playground next to it. A little older facilities, but decent. Plenty of green space to pitch a tent. We prefer this sites in the loops or along the edge. 

There is a nice fishing lake. It's good for kayaks or canoes. The woods are too thick between the campground and lake to get a view, but it's a quick walk. There is a nice hiking trail around the lake with lots of ups and downs, but not too hard. We like to ride our bikes around the main road, which provide some hills which is unusual for Central Illinois.

There is a cute old school house with great history of the park.
