We have been full time (seasonal) campers here since the resort opened. The sites are very spacious with none of that "crammed in like sardines" feeling. There are acres of groomed trails, two fishing ponds (one for kayaking) and lots of wildlife. Deer are fairly common in the woods. We camped at Buena Vista Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Lots of history within a 50 minute drive of the resort. Lincoln sites in Springfield, New Salem nearby, and historic sites in nearby Jacksonville with plenty of places to shop.

We pulled in to this campground on Sunday afternoon and there was no one to be seen. I called the phone number on the door and left a message. We parked in a pull through and later the son of the owner came by to accept our payment. He was very nice and apologized explaining that there had been a wedding the day before and he was up most of the night. The park is brand new, the sites are piles of gravel rolled fairly level. They are narrow and most are back in or drive in. There appears to be a nice playground for kids, and a pond in which to try your luck. The road in was just a little narrow and the roads around the park are very narrow for a big rig but we had no real difficulty. We would stop again next time through to see if things improve, as it appears they are trying to create a really nice park. We camped at Buena Vista Resort in a Motorhome.
