There were limited campgrounds open in Feb so not a lot of choices en route from north to warmer climates. We were the only campers in the park. Host was very friendly and escorted us to our site. This park would be a beautiful place to stay in the summer as it is wooded and overlooks a beautiful large lake (which was frozen when we were there). No water available so had to use the public showers - they were not as clean as I would have liked but perhaps hadn't been used in awhile? Some leaves had blown in from outside. Only a couple of pull through sites. Our 37' RV with car attached barely fit. Would be tight for larger rigs or you would need to stay in a back in site. Drive slowly as you enter and exit the park as there were lots of deer, some ran out in front of our rig. We camped at Illini Campground / Eldon Hazlet State Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
This is a big lake for sailing in the summer.

Nice park and setting. Bathrooms incl showers moldy, musty, dirty - wouldn't shower in one. We camped at Illini Campground / Eldon Hazlet State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

We found this park most scenic -- near the beautiful Lake Carlyle -- and near enough to town that we could run in for groceries, restaurants, etc. Even though we had a horrific storm at night, our grounds stayed fine. Showers and toilets could be better (and maybe more of them -- nearer), but all-in-all, it was nice. We can't comment on the pool and grocery part as it wasn't open yet. But we do recommend this park. We camped at Illini Campground / Eldon Hazlet State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.Undo

I've camped here a few times. The sites are well spaced. The outhouses are, well, outhouses, but there are three shower facilities with toilets that are clean. No sewer or water hookups. There are some beautiful sites on the edge of Carlyle Lake and some beautiful sites back in the woods. They take reservations for sites 1-65, but the rest are first-come, first-served. There are a few stewards on at all times and the camp is open year round. I've camped in a tent site on the lake, and twice in a camper. Each time left me feeling closer to nature. There is a new-appearing playground, several hiking trails, and a swimming pool as well. We camped at Illini Campground / Eldon Hazlet State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.Undo
