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!

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…

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…

Love the "pencil tree forest".

My family stayed on site 21 in our popup and had a great time. We LOVED the pencil tree forest. There are only a handful of campsites w electric in this circle of trees. Although these types of trees don't offer a lot of privacy I still enjoyed it. Our site was a short walk down to the lake…

Perfect Camp Site

This place has beautiful views of illinois river. Nice sized campsites. Everything was clean and well taken care of! Not a lot of amenities, however that isn’t what camping is all about! Full hook ups at a reasonable price. Each site also has a picnic table and fire pit. The guy that runs the place…

True definition of camping

We went camping for the weekend and absolutely loved this place! Full hookups was a huge plus and at $44 a night a very reasonable rate for full hookups. The owner is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet in your life. Friendly, caring and very down to earth. He treats you like a friend, not a…
