A nice city operated park. There are small 3 lakes in this park with lots of Canada geese around as well as other birds. There are no real designated camping sites. Each elect and water post has a number on it, but you park in any manner or direction you want. The elect and water posts are pretty close together, so if the park is busy, it will be very crowded. The campsites are on grass and gravel. The ground may be soft and perhaps muddy if wet. The above are the main reasons I gave it a 5 rather than an 8. 30 amp only and no dump station. Some sites are almost on the water, and have good view of a small lake. There is a free dump station in the city park in Fairbury. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is worth the effort to leave the interstate and visit this gem of a park. The campground is part of the Rock Creek Station State Historical Park, which preserves and interprets the role this "station" played on the Oregon Trail and the Pony Express. The ranger was very accomdating and opened the historic buildings for us early. The campground is connected by trail to the visitor center and station buildings. The campground itself was a shady oasis on the extremely hot day we were there. The paved pads were level, and the restrooms were immaculate. The host was welcoming too! A nice touch were the gorgeous flowers outside the shower house, and the handmade birdhouses at many of the sites. We'll be back to explore more of the trails. We camped here in a Motorhome.
