The lots are big but hardly any shade. This is a relative new campground set on the prairie. Trees have been planted and in time will provide shade. We had a problem with water. The faucet leaked very badly and had to be turned off when we were not using it. If left turned on the water flooded the driveway out to the road. Reported the leakage to campground host and he said parts were on order. Campground host was very friendly and the campground was quiet. We used the campground as a stopping point to visit other places and did not explore the park. We camped at Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very open prairie style campground. You won't have privacy between your camping neighbors but if you are going to be exploring other areas of the park with your toad then this might not be a problem. Nice lake with plenty of hiking trails but there is a massive tick population ready to pounce. We returned from our hike with 30 ticks between the four of us. Hookups are dandy, just wish there was more private sites. Only the inside sites have the full hookups, the outer sites are electric only. Camp hosts are very polite and helpful. They deliver ice and firewood to your site if needed. Bring bikes, kayaks, fishing poles etc., to keep busy. Surrounded by small towns without a lot of action so make sure to be fully stocked up on fun and food/goodies before you pull in. I imagine this place is super hot in the dead summer due to lack of trees over the campground. If you like a lot of woods and trees, this is not the park for you. We camped at Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area in a Motorhome.

New campground 10 miles west of Petersburg,IL. The 18 spacious full hookup sites are the only ones that are reservable. The other 64 are roomy, and have electric hookups with water nearby. Not much shade available. There are many new trees

planted that will offer shade in the future. There are also 9 cabins for rent. They have electricity and heat. There is a separate equestrian campground in the park. JEPC has a stocked lake, boat docks, and ramp. There is a horsepower limit. Mountain bike paths go around the lake on a 17 mile trail. Biking is also available within the park. This is the park for hiking, fishing and biking! We camped at Jim Edgar Panther Creek State Fish and Wildlife Area in a Travel Trailer.
