A very clean, large RV resort style park. We camped here one week, so rate reflects weekly rate. Good Sam will not give weekly or daily discount. People were very friendly, laundry was excellent with three laundry locations. Pool was very nice, good rules on locations. You could wash your RV once while there. Attended a few functions, weekly activities. Grocery stores near the park were not the typical nice ones that we were used to in AZ. Had to drive to others further away, the close ones were a little seedy. The only complaint I would have is this is the noisiest park I've ever stayed in anywhere. Continuous planes going overhead up until 11pm or 12pm. One night we had helicopters continuously flying around and around at 10pm. Quieter during the day, so take a nap, you'll need it if your not used to the planes. Very good security w/entry gates, guards, high fences. Occasional food trucks stop to offer goodies for consumption then or later. Saw a Schwann's truck driving through one night. Weekly Farmers Market was small but very good products with the few that were participating.

Stayed here 13 nights. The sites are a bit close, but very clean. The volunteer group that keeps the campground clean and running was friendly and worked hard at keeping everything clean. Showers were set for nice warm/medium hot temperatures and always clean, as were restrooms. We booked 6 months in advance heard people saying they could only get in one or two nights, but they booked very late. No T-Mobile signal for cell, but our verizon data card worked great for WIFI calling on these phones. WIFI in the park was there but very poor. Nice DVD Selection as were used books in the visitor center. Right on river, occasionally you could hear a boat travel by, but only about 3 during our entire stay. Some sites have sewer, ours did not, so we dump about every 5 or 6 days. Close to Parker Walmart up the road about 10 mins. Very large tall campers & buses were struggling with the tree branches hitting the top and sides of their campers, but the staff would come and trim, but looked like a major pain for some. We did not have any issue as our camper wasn't as tall.

Date of Stay:

Stayed when it was 12F at night. Water was shut off at your camp spot, however electric was on. The showers were set up so that you could hit a timer for heat, but they did not work. Nice and clean, but too cold to shower in. The mens restroom had an auxiliary heater plugged in under the sink that made that room nice and toasty. Not a bad stop over as it was very quiet as the host and our camper were the only people there. Everything was clean, and the stars at night were amazing!

Date of Stay:

The park services were all closed, water, dump, entrance, however self service registration worked just fine. Crowds are gone this time of year, it's a little windy, so we selected a site that did not look over the moraine. The sites that do look over the moraine are beautiful, however can be very, very windy. Elk were bugling in the moraine during the day, and we relaxed overlooking the moraine at a friends site. The sites were all still kept clean, but only about 2/3 of the campsites were available. One loop was closed. No reservations were needed. Our daily rate is senior discount rate @ 50%. We used our solar panel for charging during the day, so we selected a site that was in the sun, plenty of shaded locations were available at this time of year as well.

Very nice campground and fantastic host. The campground is kept very clean, the host is generous with information on the area including restaurants. We liked the shade the trees provided, the quietness of the area and the somewhat remoteness of the overall area. Cell service on T-Mobile was non-existent, however our Verizon data card connected ok, giving us WIFI calling on T-Mobile. Enjoyed the area, golf courses, fishing, boating, country club was a steal for breakfast. Electricity, water, all very good. Sewer connection did take an extended hose on the particular site I was in. We will be back, great place & rate.

Date of Stay:

Very friendly staff, close, gravel, all pull throughs. Sewer connections are not really aligned so you can stay hooked up to trailer and use, unless you have a very long connection. Close to being level sites, good stop over off of I-80, as it's 1 mile away, so was nice and quiet. We will stop again, but rate a little high for not being able to hook up sewer.

Date of Stay:

Excellent weekly stay or overnight. Only 6 miles from Interstate 80. Not busy during week, but weekends about 90% full. Very shaded, nice grassy level sites, some in a pine forest. Has excellent exceptionally clean showers, friendly park workers. Historic Round Barn, lake, trails for hiking, nicest state park Illinois has. Cell service better in the loop by the showers. Too many trees over by lake. Saw park staff clean bathrooms, many times. Only water with a hose thread was at the entrance to the campground by the RV dump. Water is available in park, but no hose attachments. We will stop and stay a while again next time.

Nice State Park Campground. Back in sites at an angle, easy to back in. Water not marked on maps, but plentiful throughout the campground. Memorial Day was VERY full and busy, but no one after or before holiday, almost empty. Good power, nice shady area. Some older areas were gravel, some had concrete pads. We will camp here again.

Date of Stay:

Nice level, shaded sites. Friendly owners, quiet park. Plenty of room for the traveler not staying the season. Seasonals are located on outside of park. Very family friendly. AT&T/Sprint/Verizon cell service ok. Lots of off the air channels. Would be good if you had a dish to set up. Can get campfire smoky on weekends. Price reflects cash with Passport America. Great weekly rate. Tons of birds, near Illinois fish hatchery, conservation areas for birding.

Date of Stay:

Very nice campground. Unfortunately, no dump. We filled our tanks from campground water tap. Sites were very level, gravel, campground looks new, not worn out. Friendly greeting from Campground host, very nice lake for canoe/kayak. Heard wild Turkeys most of the evening. Electric hook up worked fine. If you have Nebraska Park sticker, cost would only be $15. $4 entry otherwise additional. Shade trees are pretty young, will be a while before they shade your camping. We will mark this as a favorite stop when driving on US 34. You can get within 75 ft of shore on lake, but not right on lake.

We camped in Spring Canyon Campground, the other campground in park was next to RR & Highway, it was very quiet. It's an older place, but everything clean, dirt/gravel sites, handicap is concrete pad. Water we found near Handicap sites. Electric on 110v worked, but 30am circuit did not. No one else in campground when we were there. Near boat ramp and docks you could fish on. I would stop here again, because it was so quiet and clean. Rte 34 across NE takes you through friendly towns & People, lots of roadside parks for lunch/rest stops. Dump was clean and functional easy access on exit, but not marked except on the way into campground.

Date of Stay:

Very friendly owner. Good drive entrance way. They even had a garden for travelers to use and leave donation. Walking distance to restaurant. It's too windy to put out the awning or cook on the grill outside. Clean, level gravel pull through. Best WiFi out there, good enough to download a movie and watch. Close to I-70 so easy to find and get to. I used the gas station across the highway when we left to air my tires.

Date of Stay:

Good place for stop over while on I-70. Watch the turn off as it is right next to the East Bound I-70 exit (If your going west) ramp, you miss it, you'll drive 18 miles to turn around. Cleanest restrooms we've seen on our trip. Good laundry. RV pads are still a little broken up but they are ok. 30 amp breaker tripped when I ran the microwave; had to shut A/C off to do that. Owners were very friendly. This is a small park. If you stay for an extended period, ask about staying down on lower section behind laundry/shower building. Good Sam Discount on price.

Date of Stay:

Neat, clean, very well shaded campground. Owners are very nice, friendly. We stayed a whole week. WiFi excellent. Close to Interstate I-57; Would be a good stop over for 1 night as they set you up in pull through up front. Owners always available, and I was surprised at the road noise was so quiet. There were a couple of trains at night in the distance, but other wise, highly recommended. Very close to Rend Lake State Park area.

Date of Stay:

A great place to stay with families. Nice pool, shady areas are given if they are not too crowded. Weekends are busy, during the week it's quiet. We stayed a whole week. Digital TV off the air is excellent. Very nice folks running this campground. My rate was discounted for Passport America and cash for the weekly rate. Will be back and stay. Toured area water conservation areas and Indian ruins (Dixon Mounds). Leave lights off at night, lots of bugs/moths. Nearest Wal-Mart is 25 miles.
