Overall, we were happy with our experience at Comlara Park. The roads at the back part of the campground were a bit rough, with some fairly deep pot-holes. The bathrooms left a lot to be desired. They are basically just vault toilets, which is fine, but they could have been cleaner.

The staff at the visitor center, and the check-in booth were very helpful and quite friendly. They offer small boat rentals at the launch area. The young man working the rentals managed to keep everyone happy, even though he was by himself and quite busy.

There are lots of fishing opportunities, and the park offers quite a few programs for the young ones. There are lots of kids in the park, so be careful driving through. We had several young children dart out in front of our vehicle. No fault of the park, just a word of caution.

The visitor's center has ice, firewood, and live bait for sale at reasonable prices. Unfortunately, with all the rain lately, the firewood was damp and very difficult to light.

We would definitely stay here again, but will choose a site at the lower campground area as there is more shade available, and more suitable for a smaller travel trailer. Make sure to apply bug spray, and sunscreen. If you're not used to Illinois summers, the mosquitoes might catch you by surprise. Also, drink a lot of water. Even though it may only be 80 degrees, you can quickly become dehydrated when there 70%+ humidity. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Young man in office was very pleasant but not too helpful, didn’t even give map of park with directions to site. Slightly expensive for electric only. Seems to be a local's weekend place and probably gets very busy. We arrived 2pm Sunday afternoon, the dumpster was overflowing and there were still quite a few noisy children/teenagers hanging about. Many people left around 5pm (check out is 3pm and is not enforced). The only security we saw was the young man from the office drove through once about 6pm. Water faucets sporadically placed around park, you fill your tank and unhook hose so others can use. No sewer hookups, a dump station is available by boat launch away from campground. Vault toilets which looked newer but dirty and filled with bugs/spiders/cobwebs and one central bathhouse for entire park. Nice lake views, grass/gravel sites, mostly level, extremely long pull throughs which were not level. Nothing to do here but an okay overnight mid-week stop. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice county park, but a bit pricey for the area and just electric. We had a not so level pull through site, we reversed direction and were able to level ok. That also allowed us to reach the water, but we used our tank to pump out of. TV reception via batwing was poor, our Verizon cell and broadband were both good. The only real drawback here was the dump station. It is not near the CG, you have to head down to the lake area for it. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Excellent campground, about 10 miles from downtown Bloomington. Large sites, some pull through, mostly fairly level. Satellite reception was easy, especially with portable dish. Water spigots are scattered around the campground. Pick a site close to any spigot: use a double hookup, so that another camper can also use the water spigot and you'll be able to stay hooked-up for your entire stay rather than use your tank.

Very nice campground, quiet and uncrowded this time of year. About half of the 11 pull throughs are not level. No water or sewer. Pit toilets. Still, a great place and easy access to the lake. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. There are good, shady sites with views of the lake. Lots of room and you do not feel like you are right on top on your neighbors. The swimming area is great during the summer months. Showers were OK, could have been better. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Tent Trailer.

This is a great County park. The sites are clean, well maintained and spacious. The swimming beach/pond costs additional $ but is very clean, fun for everyone and has life guards. It is a separate lake that is used only for swimming. We didn't see one fish, or weed in the water. The fishing lake is very large and has fishing docks and boat rental. The playground is a bit lacking and could use some updating and some of the sites need leveling but we still really liked this campground and will definitely return. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Over all this is a very nice park. We would stay there again if in the area. Some sites are not very level. The sites near the water were covered with goose droppings. We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a beautiful park. Nice big spacious sites. Well kept park. Shower house is older but kept up pretty good. Lake has plenty of fishing for everyone. There are two boat ramps inside the campground. Paved roads except for the back part of campground. This is a family oriented campground. No drinking and no misconduct. Patrolled 24 hours. They have a kids movie and scavanger hunt on the weekends free. There is another part of the park that has a very nice swimming beach along with showers and dressing area. Boat rental of paddle boats, canoes, rowboats and sailboats. It is one park that we return to more than a couple times a year. They really are very friendly here in this county park campground and do a very good job keeping it clean! We camped at Comlara Park Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a county-run park. Alcohol is prohibited. Many spacious and shaded spots. There is no swimming pool, but there is a small, but separate swimming lake. They rent paddleboats and canoes on the main lake (Evergreen Lake). The campground is split into 3 sections. The first section has some pull-thru sites (12). The middle section has electric. The last section has limited electric and some walk-in sites. The campground is probably more akin to a state campground than private campground. The campground is patrolled by the county sheriff on a regular basis. Have camped there several times and thoroughly enjoy it. Very restful -- definitely will go back.
