Awesome little RV Park with very friendly owners. They do only have 6 spots, some are short, and they are busy, so it would be a good idea to reserve. Rate reflects weekly rate. Didn't ask about nightly rate. - workcamper14

Rate quoted is the Passport America rate, which is the only reason that we stayed here. Well off of the interstate and they had wrong directions to the campground. It looks like the owner just converted a city lot with gravel and called it a campground. - rockfarmer

This is a great little sleepy campground. Perfect if you have to work in Decatur or surrounding area while camping as its very close. There isn't much to do at this campground other than just enjoy having nothing to do but that's OK sometimes. The one thing I didn't like is the caretakers dig out the fire rings and that leaves a hole to collect water and starting a fire in a puddle of water is a bit difficult. Someone should really tell them to stop that, yes it looks nice but is very impractical for using it for what it was designed for. Other than that great park. - firemaninil

The park was clean and quiet. It seems most of the campsites are set up in a circular arrangement- almost like a cul-de-sac- but the sites are very spacious. Although the camping sites were well manicured- it goes right up to thick brushy, grassy undergrowth, very popular with rabbits! There is no view of the water from the camping sites that I could figure, so to see the water, one must go to the beach or the marina. We only stayed one night, so our visit was limited, but I would go back...especially if I had a boat! - Doxie Mom

The rate is for an electric-only site. This Illinois State Recreation Area gets primarily local visitors, as it is not close enough to a major byway to make it convenient for most people traveling through. (We are an exception and are willing to go significantly out of the way to stay at state park campgrounds.) You see lots of friends and family groups staying near each other. During our weekend stay, we arrived without reservations, and it was not a problem as the campground was only about half full. When you arrive, you must first check-in with one of the two campground hosts. He gave us a map and let us choose our own site, then go back and pay. There are some full-hookup sites but they were all taken, so we chose a site with 30 amp electric only. There are some sites with 50 amp hookup available. The best place to fill with fresh water is at one of the two dump stations. Also, note that loops H, I, J, and K are designated as no-alcohol loops. Most sites seem to be fairly level, most with gravel, but some with concrete pads. Some sites are shady and some in the open. We chose a shady site. We did get satellite by using our portable dish. The park is well groomed and clean. We had weak, but usable, Verizon voice and data. The only negative that we had was a large family/friends group camped nearby that talked until two in the morning. We would stay here again if passing through, but would not go out of our way to visit again. - TheJim

Very nice spacious lots. Plenty of room between units. Lot was not completely level but was easy to level camper. Lots of shade trees. All utilities worked great (water, sewer, electric). Utilized hiking trails and beach. Did not have boat for lake but lots of other people did. It was a great time and already have reservations to return. - CyberRanger

Camped here for just an overnight. Got a good long pull through in the front. Water sewer and 50 amp. Sites were very narrow, the neighbors sewer was about 2 feet from our step. But served our purpose well. Military gets a $5 discount. - 2 DA WDS

Nice midsize RV park, with several sections: an entryway row of sites (next to golf driving range) that are pretty close together, a larger middle loop (including several LONG pull-through sites), and a slightly "hidden" back loop (which is where we camped and what I would recommend) that is very private and quiet. Lots of open green space for dog walking, ball playing, drone flying (two of us had them when I was there), or other recreation.
This campground fills up quick during college football weekends, when the University of Illinois team is playing a home game in nearby Champaign-Urbana. We called about 10 days in advance and got one of the last few sites available.
Staff is extremely friendly and helpful, and put a smile on my face every time I spoke to them! Price is a little high at $35/night, but all developed sites have full hookups. There appear to be several primitive sites that might cost less. We had guests come one evening, and there was no extra charge. Propane and camp store on site. - scottydl

4 units traveling together, just passing thru for a overnight stay. We had made reservations and 1 unit had trouble on the road. The management went out of her way meeting us at the office at 10PM to make sure that all units were parked correctly in the dark. Lot was spacious, mostly shady and gravel. This is a beautiful country campground.
We will definitely stay here again. - Captain Hook

We spent 1 night here after a great Champagne Snow snowfall, and our dogs loved frolicking in the snow. The area was quiet and peaceful. Since there was a snowfall, I wasn't certain if we were sitting on gravel or concrete. All in all, it was decent. A lake is across the road; my guess is it's a nice setting in summer and fall. - Sally Kely

Something happened since I was here last. I think there is a new manager. It appears that most sites are now filled with RVs that are seasonal. This left very few sites for a rig to just show up (this is a no reservations campground). The rate for 7 days was $100 plus electric which is very reasonable. Hookups were a stretch on the site that I was on but worked fine. Satellite and antenna were good and Verizon cell and Internet were strong. I come here to visit family. I may check out another campground close by the next time I'm in the area. - RVW Traveler

This is a membership Sportsmans Club. Most sites are grass. The full hookup sites are small on gravel right in the middle of the entrance. Very few sites have their own fire pit. Two types of sites, full hookup or electric with community water spigots located within a 100' or so of each site. The oddest thing is that almost every site has the power post on the passenger side if the rig. Sites are relatively level but a lot are not. For some reason, you can hear the highway noise quite a bit. It is about two miles away. Small playground but nothing much more for the kids. If you are visiting the area, it will suffice. $18 is for electric only. - Wydglide

This was an old run down park with no one on duty just drop payment in the office door. It was raining the day we stopped here and the entire park was a swamp. Would not stop here again. - NevadaJim

Right off I-57 and easy to access but there is no sign at the entrance except "vacancy". No one in the office. Hodge-podge of sites that were once orderly. Difficult to see what water spigots went with which sites though water and electric were excellent. Sewer hookups in the center of each site. Advertised free cable TV in Trailer Life but it was not available. Showers and washrooms not available for use. No lighting after dark. There was a sign on the office door giving the rate of "$30 for one night, $25 for two or more nights. Put money in slot." What a joke! No amenities, no host: for $30 a night! We planned on staying two nights but left the following morning, never having seen another soul. - loneranger

A park with large gravel sites. The park is in town and has some road noise and traffic. O.K. for overnights. Notice was posted that they do not honor Passport America rates at this time. - Michigan winter visitor

I know I have given this park a low review but please read on to find out more. We love this campground. We go camping nearly 3 weekends out of every month with friends just not always here even though its closer to us than other campgrounds. The biggest reason I rated this campground low is based on value. We have a 30' tt and there are a bunch of the sites we can not use because we can't get into them or they are extremely un-level. It is an adorable little campground but for more than a month now the hot water has been broken at the shower house. This is an issue considering that there are NO full service hookups in this park. Hosts are friendly if not punctual upon entry, everyone that camps here are friendly, and we feel comfortable with our younger kids running around here given the size of the place. I do not like paying $20 per night given that the amenities are lacking here. It seems a bit high for what your getting. The park is aging and I understand that but it is a state park so the upkeep is built into my taxes already and I really expect it to be done since I have paid for it. The sites are spacious but there is not good separation borders from one to another, they do have fire rings most of them are concrete but they are crumbling. The electric service on some of the sites is finicky, the breakers are aging and like to trip if there is the slightest hint of moisture in the air. This is why we only go here if there is a chance someone has to run back into town during the weekend for some activity or something. Other wise we go elsewhere. If they had water and sewer service on some of the sites I would rate much higher as the shower house wouldn't matter near as much. - firemaninil

This is a beautiful park. Some of the sites have great views of the lake. Lots of trees, and the sites are pretty spacious. Most were fairly level. Great trail that goes all the way around the lake. Don't miss the Veteran's Memorial area they have there--it is really nice. This is a nice, quiet campground and I would come back again. - mnlkosinski

We stopped here as an overnight stay on our way home from Florida at the end of March. The only utility available at this time was electricity. The showers and bathrooms were not opened and we really didn't find drinkable water. We used some cloudy water to rinse out our toilet. We stayed in a pull-through site, #6, I think, and it was level. Some of the other sites were seriously off level. The roads were paved and were relatively easy to navigate. But it helped that there were few other campers in the park. I saw two handicapped sites that were paved in concrete. The campground host was friendly. He recommended Ted's Garage on highway 54 on the west side of Clinton for food and I had a good Friday night fish fry. - BikerRon

We stayed for one night on our way to Tennessee. Beautiful place, our site overlooked the lake. Place was quiet and restrooms were clean and well cared for. Staff was excellent, very friendly. Check in was quick and price was great. Plenty of room for our RVAnd towed vehicle. The road out is full of ruts, our only complaint. - Pamela Wick

Convenient for overnight stay. Approx one mile off 57; can see traffic from the park, but park is very quiet. Good gravel road, level gravel sites. Appear to have some seasonal. Hosts very friendly and welcoming. We would stay here again. - Sun Seeker

This is a very well-maintained park that is easy access to I-57 and excellent for an overnight stay.
The host was extremely pleasant and helpful. He led you to the site and helped with parking.
I would definitely stay here again. - davebennington
