It is a lovely park. Especially if you have a boat. They have a separate swimming area its kinda like its own cove. They have a camp store that is okay. They dont have much to choose from but there is a DG just down the road. Excellent fishing and fun trails to explore. The adorable raccoons are everywhere. They are like a little gang of bandits- they even steal food and drinks out of the cooler. The deer are around to greet you as well. Remember do not feed the critters… If possible.
This is a great campground. We stayed at site 30, a modern site with water, electric and sewer. Sharing of water and electric between two sites, so come prepared with extensions for water and electric. Only sites are next to us. Woods behind and open grass and field in front of this site. Disc golf course is awesome, in the woods, up and down ravine. 18 holes plus practice basket. Hole 1 starts by primitive sites closer to beach. Ask for a disc golf map at gatehouse. Beach area is nice. We were the only people there the first 2 days. Mostly people at campground had boats for fishing . 3 playgrounds for kids.
This is a great, quiet campground during the week. Being non electric there is usually a good mix of tent and trailer types. I prefer camping solo during the week because this camp can be virtually silent thanks to no electric hookups. The hiking here is some of the best topography around, certainly matching Turkey Run, but you don’t have to deal with all the people! There have been times I’ve come to hike and felt like I had the entire park to myself. Take this as you will: little to no cell signal through most of the campground.
This is our favorite state park to camp at. We started here in tents, and moved up to a travel trailer. We have stayed here at various times over the past 5 years. Camp sites are all non-electric. The park is typically pretty quiet except for the sounds of children playing during the day. The park roads are easy to walk, and trails abound! Trails range in difficulty, so read the park pamphlet before setting out. Views are amazing from the trails! Turkey Run SP and Raccoon Lake Rec Area are close by, and the campground pass from Shades gets you into both. Camp sites vary in size and shape, and most can get really muddy after a rain, so check the weather and plan accordingly. There is only one shower house that can get crowded on a busy weekend. Overall an amazing park and a great campground. Pictures attached are from site 102.
I live about 30 minutes from Kickapoo SP and anytime I feel I need to camp I head over. Great little campground in Central Illinois. Some pretty trails overlooking, beside, and sometimes through water. The RV sites are great for either rv, van, or tent camping with a lot of level ground at most sites. There are some real diamonds of a campsite hidden here that you can basically be in the woods with clear ground for a level tent. I love this simple campground and have brought a handful of friends here who also enjoyed it.
Granted we arrived after some heavy rain (I guess), but it was tough to get around without walking thru mud. Taking the dogs out for their business you came in with a filthy animal. The sites were really tight and it was tough moving around the campground with a 41ft 5th wheel. Saw other large rigs having difficulty getting into sites,
Great spot for an overnight stop. Host was super friendly and helpful. We had to switch dates last minute and they were super flexible. We arrived at 2am, but they had us all situated for late checkin. The campground itself was very lovely and quiet. Couple tight spots for a long rig (we have a class A 36’ +toad) but certainly manageable. WIFI signal was strong, full hook-ups were great, and bath house was super clean, with good COVID practices in place. Highly recommend.
We normally stay in state parks, but for two different years we wanted to attend the Feast of the Hunter's Moon and this was our best option. We have a tent and a canoe, so we really enjoyed the campsites they have by the river.
The folks who run the place are very nice, one night they even opened up the camp store so we could get tent stakes, which we'd forgotten. They are great at planning activities for the guests and really like to make people feel at home.
In addition to the feast, nearby is Tippecanoe State Park and Frank Lloyd Wright's Samara house.
