Looks very nice driving in, but sites are back in with the park right on the interstate. Some nice open spaces but no dog run or area, except very small one all the way in the back corner next to interstate. Owner yelled at us for letting our dog off the leash to do her business. And we saw him yelling at some young girls also. Not very pleasurable stay. Very little shade for 50 amps sites. I'd skip it and look for something else in the area. - RVcharlie

Sites nice and long and if you watch your placement, level. Nice place to walk the dogs. Noise could be an issue with the interstate right there. Water is an ongoing problem so bring filter/bottled water for drinking. It was perfect for a one night stop. - User1308

This campground is one of the prettiest and cleanest I have ever seen. Unfortunately, It is so close to the Interstate we got no sleep at all. I would have rated it an easy 10 if not for the noise. - travelcade

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

Young man in office was very pleasant but not too helpful, didn’t even give map of park with directions to site. Slightly expensive for electric only. Seems to be a local's weekend place and probably gets very busy. We arrived 2pm Sunday afternoon, the dumpster was overflowing and there were still quite a few noisy children/teenagers hanging about. Many people left around 5pm (check out is 3pm and is not enforced). The only security we saw was the young man from the office drove through once about 6pm. Water faucets sporadically placed around park, you fill your tank and unhook hose so others can use. No sewer hookups, a dump station is available by boat launch away from campground. Vault toilets which looked newer but dirty and filled with bugs/spiders/cobwebs and one central bathhouse for entire park. Nice lake views, grass/gravel sites, mostly level, extremely long pull throughs which were not level. Nothing to do here but an okay overnight mid-week stop. - paularonson

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

A nice well kept state park on a lake. Sites are gravel and mostly level. The map on line shows no pull through sites, but when we arrived we were directed to site F1 which is a pull through. Only 30 amp electric at the site. Had to fill up with water at one of the faucets scattered throughout the park. Campground hosts were friendly and very helpful. They told us the water was OK to drink, but had a bad taste due to iron. No problem, we drink bottled water. We would stay here again. - Tetrode

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

Now Timberline Campground. Smaller motor homes, travel trailers and fifth wheels will find this park satisfactory. High profile, larger motor homes will find low hanging tree branches that will cause issues. We asked for a low hanging limb to be removed on our site but they had no one to do it the day we were there. Luckily there wasn't anyone on the site beside us or in front of us and we were able to swing wide when we left which enabled us to miss the worst of it. We stayed one night. The road in to the campground is narrow and signage could be better. Many seasonal and full time residents but many open spots too, again for smaller rigs. - Rambleinthebramble

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 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

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
