Overnight stop, cute little park. nice walking area around lake and back of property for the dogs to stretch their legs after a travel day. Bathhouse was clean, water pressure decent. Friendly folks at checkin, easy on/off for interstate, everything we needed to be comfortable. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

Great overnight stop. Clean, very nice people in the office, level pull through site. The only issue was no satellite service due to trees and very low Verizon signal. There is a pool and a little lake stocked with fish. We did not have rain but I can see it might be a little muddy on some sites if there were a lot of rain. Would stop here again. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Motorhome.

This is a perfect park for an overnight stay while traveling on I-70. It is close to the interstate but you hear no noise. They reserve pull-throughs for overnight stays. Good power and full hook-up. Walmart is just up the road a few miles! We stayed one night but will come back. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

Love this place and coming back. Stayed 2 nights. Great grounds, lovely pond -- peaceful and meditative walk around. Owner was SUPER and fun he place just felt homey. Far enough from the Hgwy 70 so noise was not an issue. Minutes to Vandalia on ''40'' -- home of Lincoln's first job as IL legislator. Best campground on a long trip from California to Indiana. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Motorhome.

We were staying only one night. The owner filled us in on what they had to offer. Wide pull-through sites, well shaded with mature trees. A nice pond that's stocked for fishing! Great place to walk a dog, both in the campground and on a dead-end road nearby. The owners are wonderful! Friendly and helpful. On our way out of the park, through our own fault, we hit a fire ring and destroyed two tires on our trailer. The owners pulled those tires off our trailer and contacted the tire dealer in Vandalia to make sure they had the tires we needed. While I was gone, they were concerned about my wife's being outside in the cold and would have invited her in to stay warm with them (except that she was walking the dog off the property, so they couldn't find her). When I got back they remounted the tires so we could quickly get back on our way. And they were very understanding about our having uprooted the fire ring. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

We have stayed here before and once again it was just an over night stop. The WiFi was great but no TV reception. Very handy that they do propane fills on site. As a special treat, the owner took a photo of the beautiful sunset and sent it to me by email! Very thoughtful. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Motorhome.

We use this park for an overnight stay. Owner is pleasant to deal with, overnight sites are gravel but well maintained and fairly level. Easy to pull thru for our 37' travel trailer, E/W/S hookups all worked well. Close to I-70 but road noise is low due to trees and an embankment. Our stay was quiet, there is some low volume train noise. Enjoyed our walks around the lake after a days drive. We could get 1 antenna TV station, our Verizon phones worked fine. There are several permanent trailers in the park, but they are mostly in a different area of the park. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Travel Trailer.

Site big enough for 38 ft. 5th wheel and tow. Some shade. Couldn't get satellite due to trees. No over the air stations and no cable. Good for stop over. Nice lake to walk around. Sites close together. Lots of dust when big motor homes go through due to exhaust hitting gravel roads. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is just off of I-70, easy to find and easy to get back onto the interstate. We spend just one night here, since it was about the halfway point between Kansas City and Columbus, OH. We had a pull-thru, and as others have noted, trees blocked the satellite signal, and there was no OTA TV. We did manage to use the DirecTV streaming service. We found the Wi-Fi was good, and AT&T cell service was good. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Motorhome.

Very easy access from I70, looks well taken care and clean. Pull thru spots are kind of tight but really ok for overnight stay. Biggest negative for me was Tv, no cable and pull thru spots are treed and my satalite wasn't picking up anything, no local tv. Wifi wasn't bad. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Motorhome.

The park is pretty; nice pond, lots of trees and grass. There is a pool, but it is always full of kids, so never used it. The owners are nice and helpful. They will pick up and fill your propane. Lots of birds, a huge fish, lots of fire flies, etc. Near I-70--road and R/R noise. I stayed in a less expensive site--basic, but level and table and fire ring. More work needs to be done on the bathrooms and laundry, but they are OK. The store has lots of snacks and essentials. Laundry only $2 total. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Fifth Wheel.

Vandalia, IL is a great little town--lots of history, culture, nice people, OK grocery shopping, great thrift store. Effingham, IL is larger--more shopping, some history. Easy drive to Springfield and St Louis area.

Campground is a former KOA but was clean and has been well kept up. Our site was long enough for our 40 ft motor home and toad. Trees blocked our satellite dish, and this would be the case for many but not all of the sites. No cable TV. Poor Verizon signal (1 bar, usually 3G). Campground wifi was slow at best and very slow when anybody else was using it. There is a small lake on the property with pedal boat rentals. Fishing is catch and release. Friendly and helpful staff. We camped at Okaw Valley Kampground in a Motorhome.

The hospitality of the owners and staff were excellent. Very helpful and efficient. Checked in quick and set up quick. Very safe grounds. Nice lake with fish to catch. Very helpful to assist with propane refill on site. Reasonable rates on propane refill. Various sites and cabins available during my stay. Filled up over the weekend. Will stay here again in the future. Would recommend travelers to stay here. Easy access to I70. Clean grounds and pool area. Very pleased with my stay.
