Bull Run Bluff RV Park, Camdenton, Missouri

Date of Stay: July, 2009 - $34.00
Overall Rating:

This is a very spacious park and the sites are large, wooded and level. It is now part of the KOA franchise. It has lake access and covered boat slips for rent. The boat docks were in good condition. They also sell gas for boats. Fishing was just OK in July, but others have said that fishing is excellent in the spring. If you do bring a boat, be aware that there is a very steep road down from the campground to the water. We rented a car so that we didn't have to walk several times a day. The bath house was clean as was the pool. There is a nice playground for kids and some nice tent sites. The only downfall is that it is pretty far by boat or water to many of the area's activities. We camped at Bull Run Bluff RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cabin Fever Campground & Hunt Club, Victoria, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2008 - $25.00
Overall Rating:

I agree with the previous reviewer. This place is a work in progress, but after a few improvements it promises to be a very nice place. The sites are huge and right on one of the lakes. The sunsets here are breathtaking. The owners are very pleasant and helpful. They really want you to have a great stay. We camped at Cabin Fever Campground & Hunt Club in a Motorhome.

Hononegah Forest Preserve, Rockton, Illinois

Date of Stay: October, 2007 - $13.00
Overall Rating:

This park is part of the Winnebago County (Rockford, IL) Forest Preserve System. There are 4 parks that have campgrounds. They have water fill and dump station available. THERE IS NO BATH HOUSE but there were toilets. We did not use them, so we are not sure if they were flush or pit. The sites are huge and very secluded in the woods. The hosts were very friendly and helpful. They have volleyball, horseshoes, a playground and baseball diamond nearby. We are looking forward to trying the other 3 campgrounds in the near future. This one is located near shopping, grocery, gas, etc. just north of Rockford, IL. It is a very great deal for the money and unlike the State Parks, there is no alcohol prohibition. We camped at Hononegah Forest Preserve in a Motorhome.

Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park, Lena, Illinois

Date of Stay: September, 2007 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This was a nice park however it is VERY hilly and some sites are not very level. We camped in a MH and did not have a car with us when we camped here. The facilities are very far from the CG and a difficult walk because of the hills. For the same reason, I wouldn't recommend for bicycles either unless you are in tremendous physical shape. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Motorhome.

Pearl Lake, South Beloit, Illinois

Date of Stay: August, 2007 - $37.00
Overall Rating:

The big attraction of this park is it's beautiful swimming lake/beach. It's a hit with the local's that pay admission into the beach. On the weekends the beach bar and snack bar are open and they play music over the outdoor speaker system. Also popular is the restaurant/lounge. It offers excellent food and beverage at a very reasonable price. It sits on the edge of the lake so views from the restaurant are fantastic. The campground is not the main attraction here. Most of the shaded sites are taken by seasonals. They recently added more nightly camping with level full-hook up's, but these offer little shade. This is a very quiet campground that strictly enforces it's rules. If you are into scuba, this place offers certification classes. They also have an RV dealership on property. We camped at Pearl Lake in a Motorhome.

Hickory Hollow Campground, Utica, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2007 - $28.00
Overall Rating:

Nice to see a CG in IL that doesn't have a bunch of trashy seasonal sites. Most sites are generous in size and very level. Enough, but not too many trees. Owners very nice and friendly. Great area with tons to do. Very well stocked store and nice game room. Ideal for groups and rally's as there are many wide open areas with community fire pits, and a nice rec hall. Campground and buildings new. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Hi-Tide Beach & Campground, Leland, Illinois

Date of Stay: June, 2007 - $36.00
Overall Rating:

This place is a dump. Roads (if that is what you would call them) are narrow and tree branches were not trimmed at all. Had to drive around the low hanging branches on the grass. Only one dumpster at the exit of the CG for the entire place. Dump station blocks the exit for those wanting to exit, no room to drive around. Hot tub, pool and AC extra charges. Hot tub water was green. Sites not defined by gravel or any other kind of pad. Sites not level. In order to get somewhat level on our site we were far from the hook-ups. Picnic tables were mostly broken and covered with green moss. "Grass" (weeds) not mowed. Lots of mud when it rains. Many trashy seasonal sites. I give this a two instead of a one because the lake looks kind of neat for kids. We camped at Hi-Tide Beach & Campground in a Motorhome.

Did not know that the CG is nowhere near the Visitor Center and the hiking trails. The CG is OK, but not much to do here without a car. We camped at Starved Rock State Park in a Motorhome.

Weldon Springs State Park, Clinton, Illinois

Date of Stay: October, 2006 - $15.00
Overall Rating:

We really liked this little park. It is ideal if you like to shore fish. The lake is about 2 miles around and there is a nice trail for walking. (no bikes) There are many piers and benches for fishing. The concession stand, bait shop and boat rental area is accessible from both the road and the trail. The campground is a very short walk to the trail/lake. There was very little algae when we were here and the water was exceptionally clear. The sites in the middle section were fairly level. The outer sites, not so much so. They have a small loop that is pet-free. We camped at Weldon Springs State Park in a Motorhome.

Mississippi Palisades State Park, Savanna, Illinois

Date of Stay: October, 2006 - $20.00
Overall Rating:

This is one of our favorite campgrounds. Very spacious sites and very scenic. It's about 1/2 hour drive to Galena. Across the street from the campground there is a free boat launch, bait store and restaurant. There is also a small camp store on site. The hiking trails are wonderful. The campground is very large and usually has sites available for the summer weekends if you arrive on Friday evening. The grounds are very nice for biking and long walks. We camped at Mississippi Palisades State Park in a Motorhome.
