We travel between Charleston,SC and Omaha, NE several times a year and always stay here on return trip. Long first day drive, but so handy and staff couldn’t be more accommodating to our late arrivals. Just far enough from Interstate so noise isn’t an issue. Lots of services at the same exit.
Basic car camping campsites with a picnic table, fire ring and a food pole at each site. The sites were clean the night I was there but the water seems to have been already turned off for the season (late October). There are vault style outhouses and an honor system check in box $15/night. The best part of this campsite is it’s a 5-10 minute walk to main trail/recreation area as well as the various other trails in the area.
This place really is "Of the Gods". The Geological formations are very majestic. It is so different from the rest of the state of IL. AMAZING place to visit.
Please be careful if you bring children or those that like to wander. It is can be dangerous if one goes without caution. I'm pretty sure this is the kind of place where the phrase "slipped through the cracks" was coined. There are many cracks and various rocks that someone can slip on or through or fall off of, so be careful.
Some of the most incredible scenery ever and the trails allow access to everything. I am ready to go back, it is so beautiful.
I feel like the Garden of the Gods Campground website is deceitful. Their pictures do not accurately reflect the campground experience. If you are ok with living like a sardine during your stay, this is a great base location for site seeing.
I’ll tell y’all, the beauty of this place, just amazing how god has created this outstanding and magnificent place.
Spectacular, outstanding views, ancient cliff formations I love this place. They have camping, i think just tents though.
The campground is fabulous.
Unfortunately this website is showing the wrong Garden of the Gods in the photos. These photos are representing Garden of the Gods in Colorado not Illinois. This could cause a serious problem
I really like this little campground. The sites area bit close together, and popups are probably the only camper that can fit comfortably. This campground is very close to the Observation Trail where you can view Camel Rock. There is no electricity at this campground, and sometimes people bring very loud generators, and there isn't much that can be done about that. But it's usually pretty busy with tent-campers. This is one of the locations on the Forest that fills up more often than other campgrounds, especially on holiday weekends.
My friend and I went there one summer and had the best time of our life
