Nice park - a lot of freeway noise, but overall a nice place to stay. - Deb and Chris

Very nice, clean, tidy, well organized park convenient to I-74. Easy in/out. Staff very helpful and accommodating. FHU, 50 amp pull-through site. WIFI worked very well, about 17 OTA TV signals available. The only down side would be for those that are noise sensitive since the park sits adjacent to the highway and the noise is significant however, once evening came and the traffic died down and we closed up our rig, we had no problem sleeping. We would return if in the area. - Bob & Stephanie

Nice small park. Located adjacent to I-74 and surrounded by corn fields on the other three sides. There is road noise when sitting outside, but inside your RV with the AC on it's not a problem. There is a 30 amp section and a 50 amp section. Road leading to campground is a county road, well maintained but a little narrow. Buildings are well maintained and grass mowed. There are seasonal workers here, but all RVs in good condition and clean. No junk piling up anywhere. This campground is closed from October to April. Great for an overnight stop. - Rufas

Stopped at the office to check-in and was met by a young man that did not seem to be very enthused about his job. I noticed a "road closed" sign leading into the campground so I asked the young man if that would affect me getting to my site (#6) and he said it would not. I proceeded to my site and discovered that the road leading into my "pull-thru' site was completely blocked by construction equipment. So, I had to go the "wrong way" to access my site and back-in. Was not a problem to back-in but many neighbors had their vehicles parked along the road and it made for interesting maneuvering. It sure would have helped the entire situation if the office had provided accurate information for accessing the site. Water hydrants are located in various locations. Someone had a hose and filter hooked up to the hydrant closest to my site. Creates awkward situation when you have to disconnect someone's hose so you can fill your tank. The site required almost 12 inches of lift to level my 5th wheel. My neighbors (both sides) loved their campfires. They let them smolder all day and all night so it was impossible to open my door and enjoy the nice weather. The dump station is quite a distance from the campground, actually located at the boat ramp. Definitely not convenient to dump on the way out of the park. Verizon service was ok (4G with two bars). Was able to pick-up 17 channels with antenna. It is a nice park that has a lot of potential but I will not stay here again. - Alaska Jim

Just needed a campsite for one night so this was a pretty good choice for our 40' fifth wheel. Site was a long pull thru that was fairly level. Easy access to I-39 and not much noise from the highway. Electric was 50 amp, no water at the campsites but there was a spigot nearby. Very pretty campground with some fall colors. - Patricia Sterkowitz

Overall, we were happy with our experience at Comlara Park. The roads at the back part of the campground were a bit rough, with some fairly deep pot-holes. The bathrooms left a lot to be desired. They are basically just vault toilets, which is fine, but they could have been cleaner.
The staff at the visitor center, and the check-in booth were very helpful and quite friendly. They offer small boat rentals at the launch area. The young man working the rentals managed to keep everyone happy, even though he was by himself and quite busy.
There are lots of fishing opportunities, and the park offers quite a few programs for the young ones. There are lots of kids in the park, so be careful driving through. We had several young children dart out in front of our vehicle. No fault of the park, just a word of caution.
The visitor's center has ice, firewood, and live bait for sale at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, with all the rain lately, the firewood was damp and very difficult to light.
We would definitely stay here again, but will choose a site at the lower campground area as there is more shade available, and more suitable for a smaller travel trailer. Make sure to apply bug spray, and sunscreen. If you're not used to Illinois summers, the mosquitoes might catch you by surprise. Also, drink a lot of water. Even though it may only be 80 degrees, you can quickly become dehydrated when there 70%+ humidity. - subzeroLV

Mostly shady sites with mature trees. Lake is very pretty, direct access close to F section. F1 is the only pull through, but one pin in 30 amp power receptacle was arcing. There was a sign that said -max 24 -amps even though it was a 30 amp. We moved to C8 one of the 5 50 amp sites- it had a sign - max 40 amps. (C5,6,7,8,9 are all 50 amp). campground was pretty empty midweek after Labor Day. We had 5 clear channels with antenna:, cbs, PBS.. Stayed for one night, would return. Very nice camp hosts. - Jeannehanes

The campground was well cared for, but the trash, showers and restrooms were neglected. Hosts were very nice and helpful. We didn't complain to them about the facilities, just stayed away from them. - Torysens

We stayed here in the middle of a very rainy period. The site we had was high and dry but many were lower and quite swampy. The drainage in the park needs work.
The roads through the park are nicely paved and the lake is very nice.
It was a nice place to stay but I don't think that we would go there again. - Charlie K

We stayed 5 days 6/30-7/5. The bath house right by our camper had no hot water as they were out of gas and didn't get the gas company out there knowing they were booked to full capacity. The showers by the pool were filthy due to overuse as it was the only place with hot water. There was no internet, despite advertising they have wifi, the whole time we were there. Two of the workers even came in my camper and tried to get internet working and could not. I think the regulars must have a different password for access as they talked about watching movies on Netflix all day. All the 4th of July activities were done on the weekend and absolutely NOTHING was done on the 4th, not even a flag raising. The store was closed early every day despite being booked to full capacity. I sat at my camper and watched person after person go to the store only to realize it was closed. Golf carts price quoted at $150 for 2 days and other services are so overpriced that we could not afford to do much there. Regulars run golf carts through the campground all day and night leaving gas fumes in the air plus the noise of them. At one point the pool had at least 50 people or more in it. They do not have a pool big enough to accommodate 330 campsites. The campsites do not have fire rings making them very dangerous to have a fire with young children around. We have stayed on 2 other occasions and had a good time so to have our vacation so ruined was a real disappointment. I doubt that we will go back again. - Clasz

People were rude. Kids and adults drove around in golf carts at all hours. Owner is rude to guests. Bathrooms are disgusting. On Monday morning they burn the weekend campers' garbage, polluting the air and breaking clean air laws. They put a few sticks over the top and pretend they are burning sticks. Don't camp here. - Loves2Camp2020

Very nice campground, level sites, lots of shade, big pool, plenty of family activities. I can't give it five stars after my clothes were stolen from the laundry. The staff didn't use their speaker system to ask for the items to be returned until we pressed them to do so. Staff admitted they knew who took them but wouldn't pursue it further. They obviously have someone at the park with some issues. I wouldn't say don't stay there, but lock up your stuff if you do and stay with your laundry! No longer Jellystone, now Timberline. - ReneeH

Large RV Park, nearly filled with full-timers, many of whom have made significant additions to their sites. Clean grounds. Heavily wooded. Helpful, friendly staff. That said, BEWARE as a short term visitor, you will likely be placed on the east side of the RV park, just across the border with an actively used, busy shooting range with lots and lots of noise until nearly pitch dark. If you have a dog who hates noise, or are looking for a peaceful evening of enjoying nature--FORGET ABOUT IT! Such a shame to have noisy gun lovers destroy what would otherwise be a very nice RV Park. - MissouriBird

The staff people are very helpful and friendly. They escorted us to our site. The roads are a little narrow but manageable as long as the trees are kept trimmed. However the interior road are very dusty even when driving at a crawl. The park is about 90 percent full timers. It seems they all have golf carts and drive around the park all the time kicking up dust even as slow as they go (less than 5 mi per hr) The sites our not level. There are plenty of shade trees and still able to get roof mounted satellite to function. I would have rated the park higher except for the dirty interior roads. Even with the park cons as stated above, I would stay again. - Roy Fleming

The desk host was friendly and very helpful. We wanted a pull through as we're on the way home and only stayed one night, but didn't need 50A electric. They let us pull through a 30A site to get an electric/water site and saved us $6. Lots of trees so satellite won't work in many sites. We had a picnic table. The WiFi was weak so we used our smartphone hotspot instead, but Verizon cell phone service was good. - Ned

This is our 3rd time to stay at this park. We were meeting with a group of people that stat at Sun Light RV park in McAllen, tx in the winter. A lot of the people are from this area, so they have a get together each year in July. Great park and we had a great time. - Seemore

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

This was an overnight stop for us, so we didn't use anything at the park itself. There are 308 sites, 6 are 50 amp full hookup. Camp hosts were nice (this is their 6th year there). Water pressure was extremely low, but that could have been because we had to actually duct tape the handle to get it to work. Cheap for overnight, and very outdoorsy if you like that type of thing - saw bike and walking paths, a 'beach', marina. - DaBlairs

This is a really big campground and, again, to be honest we didn't see much of it beyond the section we were in. There are a variety of sites, ranging from just a few 50 amp full hookup sites, to several 30 amp full hook up spots, to water/electric to electric only.
This facility borders Clinton Lake: a popular area boating and fishing spot. Nearby is a marina and beach. None of the sites in our area, though, bordered the lake. This place is far enough off the beaten track that travelers don't often find it. The locals, though, fill it up on summer weekends, often in family groups who know just what spots are their favorites. The roads are good and the sites are level and spacious.
I was under the impression that the electric is an issue. Our power pedestal began acting up and getting hot. One of the campground employees cheerfully changed out the plug and breaker and we were back in business. I had the feeling that it was a common occurrence. There are a couple of issues you might want to know about. First, the few shower houses with modern facilities are in need of more "TLC." Also, there are several stinky pit toilets supposedly available closer to the campsites. I can't imagine anyone using them. Second, my Verizon signal was fair to poor, depending on time of day. Using the signal booster I managed to do most of what I wanted but at times it slowed to a crawl. All in all, our experience at this campground was a positive one and we will likely return. - nazpaz

Loop F site 17 rented for the week. Stayed 2 nights. 1 shower works out of 4, with one set temperature, shower house was very dirty. Restroom was a filthy outhouse. We will never stay there again or recommend ever. We wasted 280.00 and left early. You think that a state recreation park that charges that much for a site, that they would at least have a clean restroom, and shower house with more than one working shower. They lied to us and told us we could keep our boat in the water, and after arriving and getting robbed for a week of fishing at 31.50 we were told in person that all boats not in rented slips must be pulled out every night. Beware of the false reviews that rate this place above average. Very disappointed on my annual family vacation. Illinois didn't impress my family enough ever to return. What a dump. - Michael Hall
