Okay

First of all we are so grateful for them to squeeze us in for a reservation with 1 days notice. The campground is great, views are amazing, and you are literally on the beach of the Illinois river. But some negatives they lost a star for.

  1. In the overflow “unpaved” section there is 1 station of…

Beautiful and well spaced

Gorgeous camp ground with lots of trees and a lake. They could do a little better cleaning out the fire pits. Had garbage and cigarette butts from the previous camper that we cleaned out.

Sites better than campsite

The campground itself is pretty basic. The sites were extremely close together. I wish we would have been able to pick it out when we got there, because there are so really. It and open sites. I found 99, 101 and 105 to be the best ones! We stayed at 115 with not much room! The best part about this…

Nice shade by the lake

Excellent value at $28/ for full hookup. A lot of surface streets to get here from the freeway. Not much noise once you arrive. Good water pressure, cell service solid 2 bars. I’d stop again

A let down

Grass was tall, several sites were flooded/standing water, felt bad for those campers. Most sites have very very little gravel for car/camper and no gravel around fire ring, just tall grass. Shower house is a joke. 2 showers, 1 stall, 1 urinal for men. No temp control, the hot water is blazing…

Was a great last minute camping trip!

Made a last minute decision to go camping this weekend and I'm glad we did. The campground is very beautiful and well kept. The campsites are spacious and have ample space in between them. One leg of the campground is in a grove of pine trees (see photos). There's a playground for the kiddos, a…

A safe spot, beautiful surroundings

We got there in the rain. The site had electricity and water. Standard site. The sites were paved and large. The bathroom near our site was not the greatest, the woman’s room door did not open so we used the men’s room. There is one toilet, which is non-flushable outhouse style. That was not…

If you value your vacation time, skip this site!

I cannot express enough the horrific stay we had at this campground. When I say mud, just be prepared to be slipping and sliding everywhere because there is more mud than grass. The fly situation is out of hand. If you sit down at any given time, you'll find 20+ on you. The sites are super close…

Party atmosphere, rowdy

Stayed here for the Fourth of July weekend. It was packed and rowdy. The fireworks show was pretty good. Half the guests were setting off fireworks all weekend, to be expected, but the folks who don’t want to set off fireworks near their RV, are more than happy to set them off near yours. Probably…

Nice location and sites

The place was well run, sites vary from heavily wooded to wide open in grass. A decent amount of tenters mixed in with trailers. The showers were very hot, almost too hot for adults. Camp hosts were excellent.

10/10 would come back

Campsite is not on the same spot as the starved rock or trails. Doesn’t matter. In my opinion, it keeps the traffic down. Nice spots, power available, shower, toilets, pop vending machine. Love this area.

Park is Amazing!

The park is amazing as you can see in the photos.  Many hiking trails,  fishing possibilities and a visitor center with a museum. The campground is very tight.  The road i s very narrow and if someone is trying to move into their spot, you cannot get around them.    The only garbage drops are at…
