    Welcome to Comlara County Park, a hidden gem just northwest of Bloomington, Illinois. This place is a nature lover's paradise, centered around the stunning Evergreen Lake. Spanning 925 acres, the lake is perfect for boating, fishing, and kayaking. With two boat launches and a separate canoe/kayak launch, getting on the water is a breeze. Fishing here is top-notch, with largemouth and smallmouth bass, walleye, saugeye, muskellunge, and crappie waiting for you.

    The park offers four campgrounds with a total of 144 sites, including options for tents, RVs, and even glamping. While some campers have noted that the sites are a bit close together, the park's cleanliness and organization make up for it. If privacy is a priority, check out Site 31, which is tucked away with woods on two sides.

    Amenities here are solid. You'll find electric hookups, drinking water, showers, toilets, and a sanitary dump station. There's also a beach for swimming during the summer, playgrounds for the kids, and several large shelters for group gatherings. Firewood, ice, and fishing worms are available at the visitor center.

    For those who prefer primitive camping, the area west of Evergreen Lake near White Oak offers excellent lakefront sites with their own boat docks. It's a bit more secluded and perfect for those who want to feel more connected to nature.

    If you need a break from campfire cooking, nearby El Paso has some decent dining options, or you can make the drive to Bloomington for a wider selection, including some fantastic deep-dish pizza at Giordano's.

    Enjoy your stay at Comlara County Park, and happy camping!

    Moraine View State Recreational Area, near Le Roy, IL, is a solid spot for camping all year round. This place has a bit of everything, from tent sites to RV accommodations. If you're into fishing or kayaking, you'll love the lake here. Some campers have mentioned that the water looks like coffee, so maybe bring your own drinking water just to be safe.

    The campground has electric hookups, showers, and toilets, which is always a plus. The main shower house is well-maintained, and the roads have been recently paved, making it easier to get around. Pets are welcome, so feel free to bring your furry friends along.

    For those who enjoy a bit of privacy, there are some secluded spots, especially around Catfish Bay. Just be prepared to walk your gear in from the parking lot if you want one of those prime waterfront sites. The park also has a market for any last-minute supplies you might need.

    Group camping is a hit here, with plenty of space for multiple tents and a good atmosphere for socializing. The park is family-friendly, with lots of kids running around and having a blast. Just a heads-up: the potable water situation can be tricky, so make sure to fill up your tanks before you enter the campground.

    Overall, Moraine View offers a decent camping experience with beautiful lake views, plenty of shade from tall trees, and a peaceful environment. Whether you're staying for a night or a few days, it's a good spot to relax and enjoy the outdoors.
