Very nice place. Great for a weekend getaway. Clean, quiet, and plenty of shade. Friendly staff and other campers.

One of the Best!

The perfect blend of peaceful private camping and amenities! Full hook up, pool, laundry, beautiful bathrooms. The owners were wonderful and so accommodating. Mature trees on almost all spots. Quiet respectful campers. An all around great experience!

Loved the Hike-in Sites

We came on Memorial Day weekend so the campground was very full. It didn't feel too crowded though except when playing on the playground there were lots of kids and its not a very big play area. But it was fun for the kids to play with other kids. 

While I wish the tent are and comfort station…

  • Quick look at our campsite. Ours was definitely the biggest site with the most distance between our site and others. Ours was also the only one with the concrete pad area. And it was the closest to the tent parking area. There are 10 tent sites along the trail and they each get progressively further from the parking area.
  • Our campsite. Only thing I didn't like was the placement of the fire pit. It was right by the trail going to the other campsites so it was hard to get that secluded/privacy feeling when around the campfire. Also instead of having a grill on the campfire. There was a separate camping grill at the site.

Pros and Cons

Memorial Weekend they had lots of activities for adults and children. The staff that helped us were very kind. However, at our site the breaker was broken, so we waited for hours for someone to come fix it. The sites were very crowded and packed close together, barely room for the picnic table…

Location, location, location!

We were late reserving a campsite for Memorial Day Weekend. But Don had a spot for us. We are glad we stayed.

The campground sits along the Illinois River: many campsites face it. It's secluded and quiet. Campsites are spacious and well-distanced.

There is much to do on site. The campground is…

I’m giving it 3 stars not as a punishment or sign of anything wrong...I’m considering 3 stars as average. Not big pros or cons in my opinion. I’d say most of the sites are comparable. We stayed in Loop A and the shower house is in Loop B. Our biggest dislike for the CG is there’s no good way to get…

Clean, good size sites, lake view

We stayed here in April 2021, they have 21 RV sites as of this review and there were only 5 or six RV‘s here when we visited. The sites are very new since they just opened for business in 2021. Concrete pad is very large, depending on your rig, you could probably fit 3 or 4 cars at the site, to…

It’s the state fairgrounds

Overall a good place to stop for a day or two. One row of full hookups, like a parking lot layout. Not much space between campers however if you don’t need full hookups lots of elec only spots. Two large parking lots for RVs and lots of grass spots. Visited in April, the only crowed area was the…

Nice Place w/general store & beach of

We stayed here Sept 2020. It’s a nice place with a beach and playground for the kids. Seems pretty large. It was very quiet when we were there due to a somewhat rainy weekend. We still enjoyed ourselves. They have a general store with necessities like milk etc, and extras like movies to borrow, and…

Nice clean park

Stay here a while ago on a last minute weekend away whim. Got to the park after dark and paid the next morning. Not being a holiday weekend we were able to find a site easily. Some sites are more conducive to tents than RVs which is great for both types of campers. Very open campground. Not a ton…

Quaint campground near highway

We stayed here in September 2020. They deliver the firepit and wood if you need it. They have a pool, that was closed because of virus stuff. Smallish campground and good areas for kids to ride bikes and play. Nice Little swingset. Good cell signal(there is a tower very close). Quiet, depending…

Fantastic backcountry sites

Short walk from the parking lot if carrying heavy gear, but still spaced out enough to feel isolated. Vault toilets right at the parking lot as well. Next to a big grassy area and hill for group games
