We drove through this campground. We are fans of the the COE campgrounds and were very disappointed with this one. So disappointed we didn't stay. Most COE campgrounds have either gravel and cement pads -- this campground had neither --you park on the grass. The ground did not appear level in most places and would require some leveling. I also agree that we took the "direct" route to this campground from Galena and that in itself was an adventure. The other road leading to Hanover was several miles (5-6 miles) of gravel -- not too happy with that either. We camped at Blanding Landing in a Travel Trailer.Undo

This is an Army Corp of Engineers campground. It is very remote, 8 miles west of Hanover, Illinois. If you are a freight train buff, you will LOVE this place, as the trains run next to the campground. A local told us sometimes as many as 60 trains pass by here daily. It took a bit of getting used to: at night they quiet down but still average about 7 a night. By the third day, it didn't bother us much, and the quiet between trains is deafening in itself. The campground boasts 50 amp electric, but no water or sewer at site. Water is available throughout the park however. The restrooms were neat and clean, even over the Labor Day weekend. There is a boat ramp into the Mississippi backwater and I assume the fishing is good. Lots of trees, but open areas as well. Large, grassy sites are the norm, which afford some privacy. There is a well-maintained playground, and it is a very kid-friendly campground. Be sure to get a lower number site if possible, the higher number sites back up to the tracks and I guarantee you will know it when a freight rolls through. I would have given this a 9 rating even without water and sewer except for the trains. We would return however, because it was very pretty and peaceful despite the trains. Also, do NOT use Google Maps to get to this place; Google got us there the most direct route possible, but also took us down some roads that a travel trailer had no right to be on. Best way is to go through Hanover and just follow the signs. We camped at Blanding Landing in a Travel Trailer.Undo
