Would have been $15 if we had been from Illinois! Electric only, but water and dump available. Beautiful park area. - Merikay MacKenna

Very clean showers although dated. Very level sites with good electric. Some in our group had difficulty with the 30 amp. Needed to use 50 with a 30 adapter.
Quiet and restful. Nice shelter for meetings/meals. Decent dump station.
New Salem Village was very interesting although there was only one busy volunteer who gave a good background on the village. Paved drives that made a nice thing for walkers. - Oldbug76

The park is dated, could definitely use some updates - but then Illinois is broke so doubt they are putting $$ into their parks. We had issues with the 30 amp electrical. Illinois doesn't refund at state parks, so we were without power for two nights. The host was very helpful on day 3 and suggested plugging into a 50 amp with a 30 amp adapter - that worked! Something with the 30 amp ground. (Wonder if this is common at this park as two other RVs had the same problem.) - Med

Grass, very unlevel, couldn't even get slides out on fronts. - Never Lost

The man who checked us in was very friendly. The campground was grassy and treed with gravel parking spots that were not very level. The sites were close together and most of the other RVs were very old and in bad shape. The campground was bordered with a run-down mobile home park which was not separated by a fence. A train track runs close to the park and a train can be heard several times per day. The roads were full of potholes. But it was an okay park for the price considering we had sewer at our site in addition to water and electricity. - mountainfan

This is a County owned campground! We were traveling so stopped a pull thru site for 1 night only. $25 for a night was fair. Campground was about 4 miles off of I 55. Sites were gravel and some were kind of close to level. 50 amp power, water and sewer hookups. Once we got set up we decided to checkout the bath house. Men's and Women's were both filthy and stunk. All the toilets were full of caked on feces, broken balloons were all over the floors, and it looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in a year!The floors were covered with paper towel pieces, and horribly dirty! First and last time for us, we will never be back because of the condition of the bath houses. Too bad as campground is nice and area seems nice too. - LaMonte

Rate reflects weekly rate. The place was practically empty being pre-Memorial Day. Most others were on the FHU on grass; it was too crowded for us. The FHU on asphalt wasn't appealing. Tall grass spot with W+E with no one else near was our choice. They have a dump station. The grass around us eventually got mowed. These spots are very closely spaced and most were on a slope. No picnic table or fire ring.
If it were a busy time, then you may have a different experience. Loved walking around the grounds. Shower house was large and heated (it was chilly out), but not very clean. Same clumps of hair were still there after a week. Check out how the water comes out before committing to a stall. When we arrived, the CG manager took us for a ride around the grounds; how cool is that?! (Not something they normally do.)
They said we could have mail delivered there, but UPS couldn't figure it out. Luckily we had a few days to resolve it by my going to UPS to pick up my package.
They had a free concert while we were here. - MichelleKry

This was our first night in the RV having picked it up earlier that day and never having driven one before; we arrived late and tired and the gentleman in charge was so helpful and kind in making sure we were hooked up properly as we didn't have a clue!
The campground is in a very convenient location and is very well maintained. - Anne Haworth

An adequate park for those wanting to explore Lincoln land, mostly given over to seasonal pipeline workers. The guy next to us had his car hood up and his gas tank removed all day. The park needs an overall cleanup/raking. Bath house was old and dark, but clean and functional. CATV excellent. - ebdavis

We stayed a weekend in October and it was very nice. Plenty of signs telling you where to go, even after we missed a turn (navigators fault) we were able to find our way again very easily. Not a huge campground, but still nice. A simple park but good enough for the kids to play around on. My kids LOVED the bikes and since the campground wasn't crowded they could ride the bikes everywhere safely. Restrooms were always clean. - RebaDee

We stayed one night passing through the area. The park was several miles off of I-55 but the quietness of the campground was well worth it. This is an older campground, gravel sites, all of our utilities worked well. Our site had no shade trees, but that didn't matter for our one night stay. The directional signage from the south I-55 entrance was excellent, it would have been hard to find this campground without those. It is all paved roads to the campground, trees are kept trimmed back well to prevent hitting your camper. The one lane bridge was no problem to navigate. The owner was very helpful and friendly. - Arlen

This park is very far off the beaten path and therefore very quiet. We stayed in a back-in overflow area with water and electric only because a weekend event had filled up the rest. The pool looked inviting. The mini-golf needed some TLC. We will stay here again if the others are full. - exceltraveler

Great place to visit, this campground has beautiful Silver Maple trees throughout, all sites are level, VERY long and spacious pull-thru. Staff is friendly, courteous and helpful. They guide you to your site. Setup is a breeze with updated utilities properly located and the sites have good drainage if you arrive in rainy weather as we did. 12-miles from Springfield, IL Everything Lincoln, Historic Route 66 (Cozy Dog Drive-in), the State Capitol building, etc. - GaHoosier

This is an excellent park to stay in to see the sites of Springfield (Abe Lincoln). The RV park has nice shade trees with no low branches, nice gravel sites and roads (no pot holes), good electric (123 amps on each leg) and great cable! The check-in person (owner) was full of information of what there was to see in the area, grocery stores, etc., with exact directions to get there (very helpful). This park is immaculate and it shows that the owner has 'pride of ownership'. Although the park is just off of I-55, you don't hear any noise. This is definitely a park we will return to. - MarkG.

I have stayed at this campground many times. It is always a nice stay; however, shower curtain was moldy, but by end of stay most were changed out with new. We have already book our next stay here for Labor Day weekend. - dwin a-frame

The lots are big but hardly any shade. This is a relative new campground set on the prairie. Trees have been planted and in time will provide shade. We had a problem with water. The faucet leaked very badly and had to be turned off when we were not using it. If left turned on the water flooded the driveway out to the road. Reported the leakage to campground host and he said parts were on order. Campground host was very friendly and the campground was quiet. We used the campground as a stopping point to visit other places and did not explore the park. - CyberRanger

This is a very open prairie style campground. You won't have privacy between your camping neighbors but if you are going to be exploring other areas of the park with your toad then this might not be a problem. Nice lake with plenty of hiking trails but there is a massive tick population ready to pounce. We returned from our hike with 30 ticks between the four of us. Hookups are dandy, just wish there was more private sites. Only the inside sites have the full hookups, the outer sites are electric only. Camp hosts are very polite and helpful. They deliver ice and firewood to your site if needed. Bring bikes, kayaks, fishing poles etc., to keep busy. Surrounded by small towns without a lot of action so make sure to be fully stocked up on fun and food/goodies before you pull in. I imagine this place is super hot in the dead summer due to lack of trees over the campground. If you like a lot of woods and trees, this is not the park for you. - redshoe

This is a small campground in the middle of corn country. We needed a spot with full hookups for one nite and this met our needs. Right on the side of the road but traffic was minimal. Good Verizon service. Good TV reception over the antenna. Owner very friendly. - smitty12

Good place for an overnight stop. Sites are close together and we were in an afternoon shaded back-in spot. Were able to stay hooked up to tow vehicle. - h and e

Rate reflects a 15% Good Sam discount. This is a very small RV park nestled in the corn fields. It is located on a side road with little traffic, so noise is not a real problem, even though you are parked close to the road. There are only a few sites that can take a big rig. We had one of the back-in sites in the dead-end part of the park, and could only maneuver in as the sites across from us were empty, otherwise, there was not enough swing room to back in. The owner is very friendly and helpful. AT&T and Verizon signals were good. The water is nice and soft and has good pressure. Over the air TV reception pulls in the networks out of Springfield and that is about it. The only reason we would probably not stay here again is that it was difficult to take the dog for long walks, as the only place to walk was along the roadway, otherwise it was a nice place to stay. - Greyt-Parent
