This is a Casino that allows you to park overnight and they have a few spaces for rigs and trucks. We asked to stay there because the other campgrounds has been flooded out and were too muddy to enter. Worked for us in a pinch and we did ask permission. - imperial

Convenient to Peoria, easy to find and access, this park is largely long term or seasonal residents who have boats in the marina. Check in was quick and we were led to our site. Interior roads and sites are paved, and although a bit tight due to large trees and fairly close sites, our 40' motor home was easy to park. No WiFi but good Verizon cell/data, no cable but a fair number of OTA channels. Satellite TV may or may not be usable due to the many trees. Far enough from the highway and river to be quiet, but close to shopping, dining, and a casino. A good value in an area without many options. - Meanderman

Very good place to stay when visiting the area. I enjoyed my stay there.
I used the washer and drier which were convenient. - mrracechaser

We were pleasantly surprised with this park. It is simple...not much for frills. But, it got the job done. We had full hook-ups and there was someone at the front office everyday. This is a city ran park so there is also the benefit of roaming police. The officer normally on duty was very friendly and made it a point to wave at us whenever he drove by. This park is in no means a destination park, that is to say there isn't much family fun going on, but at least it is clean and organized and my family and I felt very safe there. We were local for business purposes and if we ever need to return to Peoria we will seek this park out! - EasyE RV

Spent 2 months here. Monthly rate is $450. Close to grocery store, many restaurants and other services. There are no bathrooms or showers. On a busy road, so it can be noisy. No hiking, but Detweiller Park and Forest Park Nature Center are close by and have good hiking. Managers are very nice and helpful. No wireless, but if you go up to the nearby strip mall there are some free ones. - klh0922

We found this park on Google. It was perfect for us. It's not fancy and parking the rig took some doing but the manager was most helpful. And once we got parked, we had lots of room on either side. It's part of a mobile home park and very quiet. We met a few very friendly permanent residents who are looking forward to our return. We will be back next spring as we have family here. So we weren't looking for a park that offered any more than a place to park. But it's right on Knoxville Ave so it's easy to get all over Peoria. There are also a number of fast food restaurants and an Italian restaurant within walking distance. Ditto a great hair-dresser. All in all, a great find and highly recommended. - mellowmutts

Arrived and had to call to have someone come down to check me in. Roads to sites are dirt with dirt/gravel sites. Most sites are not level and need serious blocking to get level. I went the whole park and could not find any type of trash receptacle. The WiFi is not usable and I would never drink the water. I would call this park worth the passport america price but would never pay full price. - easlingn

Very shady campground on the Illinois River. Lots of standing water because of all the rain, so there were lots of mosquitoes. There are no facilities (no office, no store, no laundry); however, the owner met us and led us to a level drive-through site (sites are not numbered). He was very friendly. There is only 50-amp service and the owner will let you borrow an adapter for free or you can buy one from him for $15. This is NOT kid friendly - there is no playground, no pool, nowhere for kids to play. The 'fishing pond' was not maintained and there was no good place to sit or stand to actually go fishing on the fishing pond. Other fishing was in a backwater area of the Illinois river. There was supposed to be WiFI; however, I could never get service. TV reception was good. - muszynca

Stayed in a 43ft 5th wheel. Access was good with plenty of clearance. Grounds were well kept and the view beautiful. Access to the river required crossing a slough. - BobsFixIt

This is a beautiful State Park. However, Most of the sites are grass and not very level. Only a few had a small gravel base. The camp host was very accommodating and allowed us to pick our own site. There is only water and electric hook ups... but a dump station close by for use. Sites are spacious and not cramped at all. Cell service was spotty-but satellite TV worked ok. There are lots of hiking trails, the area was beautiful. Would stay here again. - oldguyinrv

We stayed here for a week in August and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere. First of all, the price was excellent at $20/night which accommodated 3 tents with one person each, a van, and an RV with another person...awesome value for our money. There aren't many frills but there are large sites, each including a power hookup free of charge. The pit toilets are closer but there is a free shower and flush toilets within walking distance. The hosts are gone a lot but come by and collect the fees later on so just grab a site. The bugs here are fine compared to other campgrounds such as Kickapoo. For a group outing this place would be wonderful. I don't believe there are any alcohol restrictions and even better no out of state upcharges. - CaliDiscGolf

If you want peace and quiet this is the place! We were in the last camping loop and never had more than 3 neighbors in the 2 days we stayed. The grounds are beautiful lush grass that is well maintained. There are miles and miles of hiking trails throughout the park, if you're so inclined. We did have a couple of problems. First the trees need trimming badly. While we were backing into our site a branch hooked our TV antenna and ripped it off the roof! Then our RV acquired a dislike for the 30 amp GFCI breaker in the power pedestal. It worked fine all of the first day but then wouldn't hold just at bedtime. One of the maintenance workers changed out the breaker the next day but it too tripped quickly. The worker said this is a frequent occurrence with many RVs and some just leave, not being able to find a site where the 30 amp breaker doesn't trip. We wound up moving to a site with a 50 amp, non-GFCI breaker and had no further problems. It is also a challenge finding a level site. All but a handful slope one way or another. We would definitely camp here again: assuming we could find a level site with 50 amp service! - RVeron

This is a nice campground. Pros: The grounds are well kept, there are two stocked ponds for fishing, hosts are friendly, bathrooms were very clean. There are many activities scheduled, such as bingo, fish feeding, and a country Opry show. This campground has two playground areas. One is average and the other one is fantastic! The entrance to the playground is a giant slide called 'Big Red.' The playground at the bottom of the slide is very nice. The campground was generally quiet during the day, and just about silent during quiet hours (10 p.m. - 8 a.m.) Cons: The area of the campground we were in had very, very, very small sites. There are really no attractions nearby. It was fine for a weekend, but any longer of a stay and we would have been bored. All in all, we were very pleased and plan on returning. - rollinrollinrollin

This is a nice campground located about 25 miles from Peoria. It's an older facility, but well-maintained. Sites are level and roomy. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, but during our midweek stay we didn't see many people. The bathhouses are rustic and reasonably clean (not spotless). Off air TV reception is good and my Verizon 4G worked okay for a web connection. This property runs public country music shows every Saturday night during the summer, and since we're here at midweek I don't know what impact that has on the ambience of the park. - DrLewie

We arrived at the CG on June 1. We had called a month in advance and ask if they could accommodate a 35' Motorhome pulling a trailer and they said they could. As soon as we arrived, the elderly lady at registration was rude and wanted to know if we had a reservation. I told her I did and that I had called a month ago. The lady told me, "Well, I don't think I can fit that big rig in the sites we have." I told her she had originally told me she could, all she could say was, "I don't think so but you can look." As she showed my husband the site she said she didn't think we could stay any longer than 3 nights even if we wanted to. The whole process was terrible and the staff was rude. - tow

The entrance to Timberline RV Park has low hanging tree limbs that drug along the top of our motorhome. Upon arriving at our designated camping site, we found a large tree limb extending half way across our site. I made three attempts to swing wide to avoid the branch and finally gave up, calling the office to get another site. The second site was OK, supposedly a pull through, but the exit side had a downward grade requiring that we back out on the day of our departure.
We plugged our 50-amp power cord into the pedestal, turned on the AC and left for lunch. Upon our return, we found the power was off and the coach was hot. I called the office and they promptly arrived and changed the breaker in the very old pedestal electrical box. That fixed the problem. The sites are fairly close together and there is a fire pit between each site. If you don't like fire smoke, this is not the place for you, because there are many fires at night: and this is in the heat of August.
In summary, this campground is past its prime. In its day, it was likely a very nice campground associated with the Yogi Bear franchise. Evidently, Yogi left and today it is in a state of disrepair. Hint: Trim the trees. Many of the sites are not level. Some sites have gravel, others are grass. Lastly, it appeared to be a good place for kids with swimming pool, bounce pad and pedal cars. - LK23

As others have noted, this is no longer "Yogi Bear's" but Timberline Campground. We stopped here for an overnight and were very happy. There was a lot going on at the campground. It's huge, it was busy the Saturday we were there, and there looks to be a ton of stuff for kids to do. However, the owner has expanded and has an entire new section that is back away from the front of the campground where the pool, playground, activities, campstore, and (that night) the DJ was located and as requested we were given a "quiet" site in the new area. This East section has large gravel back in sites and huge open lawn areas and was much quieter than the front of the campground. Full hook-up, which is nice, but we noticed several of the sewer openings did not have caps - were just open to the air (yuck). Also rather weird - they sold us some firewood up at the store, but when we pulled into the site we noticed none of the sites in this new area had fire rings/pits. The new section does not have any trees for shade so we baked a bit, but our site was large and quiet and we would definitely stop here again. - R.T.

Large Park...now Timberline Campground. Many FT campers. Large site for pull thru. Rainy while we were here, but drainage was good. Lots of grassy places to walk dogs. No Good Sam discount now, so they gave us military....even though we aren't. No WiFi or cable TV, but good satellite reception. Pool just opened, lots of play areas for kids. Off the freeway, but no noise. Small pond for fishing. - Jodie S
