Perfect for cyclists along the canal trail

This campground is right in town. It is a bit away from businesses. However if you arrive by car you drive through the quaint town. 

Arriving by bicycle is even better. The Illinois and Michigan Canal Trail passes right by camp. You can stop for a rest or stay the night. It's a nice stopping distance if you are riding from Chicago to Starved Rock. The trail is crushed gravel and is a beautiful ride.

This campground is surrounded by trees. When we showed up, a classic car gathering was going on. They even set a campfire to use throughout the morning. There are vault toilets and a picnic area too. It should also be noted that you need to walk in to the campsites (parking is really close by).

The maintenance buildings are right next to campsites. Today they were mowing so workers were moving in camp but also out along the trail and park.

This is a nice, shady place to stop along the I & M Canal Trail.

  • Sites are in a field with some trees around. You need to walk in to the sites.
  • You drive through the small town on your way in
  • The I & M Canal Trail is a pleasant bike path.
