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.
Have to walk to the site but if you want nonelectric/ primitive that’s what you get. Water pump at either side of the entry. Some outhouses available. Trails close as well as fishing areas. Large sites for camping. Deer and wildlife seen in the mornings. Really nice way to get off the grid for a second without having to go too far.
The campsites are so close to each other no privacy, there was a camper on both sides of us and we were in a tent when we arrived one neighbor had all there stuff (bicycles, dog, dog accessories, all in our spot, and they had helped thereselves to our picnic table, we saw a couple open spots next to us with a little more privacy so we asked if we could switch the lady said they were spoken for I stayed 2 nights no one ever showed up to them sites very unhappy will not return.
Quiet, heavily wooded campground. We arrived well after dark and had a bit of a time finding our site, but once we were set up it was very quiet. Parking spot was paved.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND CHECKING ON THEIR WEBSITE TO SEE IF PART OF THE ROADS ARE CLOSED DUE TO CONSTRUCTION. THEY HAVE ALTERNATE DIRECTIONS. We missed that detail and ended up on a 30 minute long trek around 930pm…started on the interstate, then a state road, then a county road, then an unnamed road…if we had met oncoming traffic there would have been only room for one vehicle in a few places.
A nice site, close to hiking. The RV spots were a bit close together and “partially shaded” doesn’t actually mean partially shaded but the site is well maintained, beautiful, there are several dump stations and water fill ups. A gorgeous hiking loop links straight off the campground and from there you can access many of the other trails. The suspension bridge and ravines are not to be missed.
As first time campers, we went with relatives with camping experience. They have a trailer camper and we got adjacent sites, their RV in one and our tents in the other.
The sites were clean and well-shaded. There was lots of room for camp chairs around the fire, as well as for the younger kids to run around. They reported an easy time parking and hooking up their camper.
The bathrooms and showers were very clean and well maintained.
There were fun trails to hike on that were enjoyed by all, including kids and dogs.
Everyone we met seemed so friendly, something that we honestly were a little worried about being Asian-American city folk venturing into the woods in the middle of nowhere.
All in all, it was a wonderful experience that convinced us to come back and keep camping.
