6 Parks near Cornell, Illinois
May 2011 - $29.00
This is a Party campground. Not for kids. I would not let my son go anywhere alone here. Underage drinking and a lot of loud drunks on golf carts that are they to drink and party. It's very dirty because of the gravel roads and they do not do any upkeep on the place. When you first pull in, it looks like a Junk Yard! There's a lot of dumpy old trailers and campers just junk sitting around. There is NOTHING for kids to do here. there's a very small pool and is usually very crowded. The electricity kept tripping because they had too many large campers plugged in. Not happy and never going back. - 3mfamily

The first time I stayed at this gas station I didn't have slides so the narrow sites were not a problem. With slides, you have to be very careful how you position your rig. For the price it remains a OK spot to overnight if you need hookups. There is a cable TV hookup but it doesn't work. Wi-Fi available in Burger King but it doesn't win any speed awards. Station is in transition. The Burger King and Subway are still there and operating but the gas station and store was just sold in a foreclosure auction. Had to pay in the Burger King, cash only. - glenthompson

We read reviews that were dated, and after a long driving day, decided to check it out. Shell no longer operates the station, so look for PHILLIPS 66. From southbound I-39, exit on 35, then take a left. You'll see BP and Casey's listed as the gas stations, but you'll see Phillips 66 once you make the left turn. It'll be on your left. RV spaces are by Burger King, on the end of the complex. Once BK closes it surprisingly quiet. Cable t.v. appears to now be available. Full hookups here. We're not a big rig, so was an easy fit for us. All paved and clean as a whistle. Bathrooms in convenience store, which is open 24-hours. Current rate is $25, plus $1.56 tax ($26.56). Worth the money for us. Will stay here again when in the area. Oh, never could get the website in English, so not sure what that's about. - KejLrtj

This is definitely a stop-over location. The sites are very narrow. They have cement barriers between each site by the utilities. With these 2 issues it makes it hard to put slides out. Because we had no neighbors we had no slide problem, but our slides did extend to the neighboring site. We also had to pull the fifth wheel to the front of the site and park the truck in back in order to hook up the electric and be able to put the slides out. It's noisy during the day, but we had no noise issues at night. Even though it is a cement site we had to raise one side 2 inches to level our unit. We had a good view of the sky for satellite reception. If I needed a place to sleep and wanted full hookup I would return. If I was looking for a true campground then I would pass this one by. - TomG100

Mainly a seasonal park, but they do offer a few Overnight sites. Grounds are not maintained at all and the majority of the seasonal sites look like no one has been out to them in years. No swimming of any type (pool or lake). Nice newer playground and entry with a keypad locking gate. I asked if they had fishing, the lady said yes they had a stocked pond but in her own words it was pretty "grown up" I guess she was not kidding because I could not even find the pond! Weeds - Yikes! I don't think we will return, the place seems deserted and creepy and offers nothing for recreation. - cdm74

The shower house was clean but needed better ventilation, it stank.
The roads are asphalt in good shape. The sites are gravel. The views are good for campers, but none for tents. One host is quiet and friendly, the other nit picky. There's an ice cream shop in the park at the ball field.
30 amp at camper sites. Shared water that needs flushing each use, lots of rust in line.
No OTA TV, satellite iffy.
Several tree need trimmed on the roads and sites. - Hhtjr

The sites are very spacious and level. We had plenty of room in our site to spread out. The fire pits are small and raised off of the ground. There was wood available from the camp host at a reasonable price. For those of you that are early-birds, keep an eye out for the barges passing right next to your campsite! - Bertaventure

We love this campground for two reasons. Close to home so that I can commute to work and the river sites with their view of the river and barges. Nothing can beat the sun coming up over the river with a barge in site. The river sites are in the Great Falls area sites 1-20. We give the park a review of 8 because of the quality of water (we bring our water from home) and the fact that only 20 of the sites are on the river. If I was coming to the area to visit Starved Rock State Park, I would choose this campground and use it as my home base. There are a number of restaurants in the town of Marseilles a short drive away. - smitty12

The campground was very poorly maintained with very rough and pot holed roads, the roads were very dusty and heavily traveled with speeding golf carts and off road ATV type vehicles, woke up the next morning with 1/8" of dust on RV and truck. Fire works all evening until they either ran out or got tired of them. the sites were very close, for what should have been maybe 3 sites they had 6 if there had been a camper beside us we could not have put out our awning. There appeared to be no rules; when asked another camper said others have been told if you don't like it leave. Well I will not be back. Keep on looking. do not stop here. - Chief Dave

The "guard house" was abandoned, the roads almost impossible, the site electric threatened electrocution, the water stank, and we didn't feel safe leaving the coach for an excursion. Very rough people as "greeters", no site map, and we feared for our safety -slept with the pistol loaded right next to my head. - Frances and Sparky

Was just staying the night. Camped near entrance gate as I didn't feel like spending the time to drive back to regular camping area. (Long day, 427 miles.) This was my choice as staff offered the regular lots for me to use. Staff was friendly. Had water & electric. Wi-Fi never worked where I was located. Looked like the router I was connected to needed to be re-booted to the Internet. If Wi-Fi worked and maybe if I had seen rest of campground I would feel comfortable with a 7 or 8 rating. Would stay again and would probably go to regular camping area. - Tireman9

We had called this park twice before arriving, and had not received a call back. We went anyway. Roads throughout the park were bumpy, muddy, full of potholes. There were many permanent residents in broken down, trash strewn places that should have been bulldozed. Crowded, non-level, barely paved sites obscured by fallen leaves. I saw a Pitbull, off leash, and mentioned it to the owner. I saw things happening that led me to believe that "anything goes" and if there are any rules in place, they are certainly not enforced. We drove through the park a couple of times, with the owner and another fellow. I feared for the safety of our rig and our small dog. Luckily we found another place to stay and left. - mrsweeble

It is open year round. There are lots of permanet residents there. The dogs run free but are friendly. The trees infested with carpenter ants. There is only wifi by the office with no shade. We were there over the 4th and firecrackers were going off until about 3 a.m. - hap

This was our first time camping with our new camper. We did stay over a holiday weekend. The camp site itself was very nice, private and quiet. We did see the pool, but did not use it. The overall campground itself was ok. There were permanents all through out the campground, some were nice and others needed to be taken away. People were friendly and we as a family will stay at this campground again. - fairfield5
