Hi I know that a few have stayed at Prariepines CampGround in Rantoul, IL I have seen the reveiws and I am glad for those who have stayed and want to come back. Now Just wanted to let everyone know that the Village of Rantoul is considering MOVING the campground to another area close to where it is presently, About a 1/2 mile east closer to Heritage Lake Just wanted to see if theres any opinion on moving this. Right now there are 95 full hook up sites and I am unsure what the plans will be on what will be offered in the move but will let you know if I hear anything else. Well I guess theres no one around that has stayed here latly I was hoping to get some feedback from others who had to let the village know what others are saying about the campground. Happy Trails to all.

Hey Fosterimposters This only in the earlry stages of moving the campground and I was just trying to get some thoughts from those who have been here and to let the village know what our fellow campers think. Happy Trails.

We stayed there last fall - loved it! Very reasonable price, large spots, good hook-ups. What a pleasurable place for the weary traveler to relax! To us folks from Idaho that "suffered" from many undesirable rv campgrounds during our trip, Prarie Pines was like an oasis in the desert. We spent money in Rantoul. The village of Rantoul should realize that superior parks like Rantoul reflect a positive image on their community, and make RV'rs want to visit - and spend money. If they want to move the campground, I hope the new one is just as pleasant, as we plan to camp there again. Just my thoughts.

HEY thanks for the great reply........I'm not sure now if there are still planning on moving the campground anytime soon but I do see alot of Rver's all the time. I even have "gone camping" out there and although it's in town it far enough away from town to really enjoy camping......The big reason was to make use of the near buy lake area.......If I keep getting great replies like yours I'm going to plan on passing them along to the village.....Happy Trails....... biggrin.gif

Can you tell me the exact street address of the campground and give me directions to it? I'll be arriving there Monday afternoon in a 45' motorhome towing a pickup truck, so don't want to wander around looking for the campground. The reason I ask is because I'm shown three different locations on various internet sites.

Thanks for your help,

Hi It's 711 Chadler Road, Rantoul, IL 61866.

Hello all



Just a update as of now I haven't heard of anymore talk on moving the campground. The city Administrator has left the city and there doesn't seem to be anymore talk of moving.....(maybe it was just his idea) If things change I'll keep you posted. And for those who have stopped by Thanks for stopping and I hope you come back. Happy Trails
