This was our first trip in our travel trailer. The camp host couple was wonderful! They were very friendly and helpful. Their genuine interest in our experience was heartfelt and we were thankful. Additionally, this was a very family and dog friendly campground. Site surface was gravel and featured a fire ring and picnic table. We will be back! We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Only stayed one night, but next time will stay longer. Park is lovely, site we had was easy to get into, had water and 30 amp electric. As others say, the road getting into the campground is horrible. We have a 40' fifth wheel with long dually, and it was a bit hairy getting in :) We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice park, once you get to the campsites. The roads in are terrible. Large potholes, drop off at edge. The area is quite beautiful, the restaurants in town are very reasonable. The sites are spacious, water nearby, and electric at the site. Some sites, on the downhill side, need a lot of leveling. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The only reason this park does not rate higher is the horrible condition of the road to the campground. It's barely two lanes with deep drop offs and very winding. There are many deep pot holes and its very steep. I don't know what you would do if two big rigs met going opposite ways. The campground itself is very nice with clean bathrooms and a very friendly camp host. They have lots of nice trails and are close to several tourist destinations. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Positives: Most sites are electric and fairly good sized. Bathhouse is newer and seemed well maintained. Most sites are non-reserved and usually available last-minute (even Labor Day weekend still had sites available). A concessionaire drives around the campground at dusk selling firewood and ice-- very convenient. Quiet out of the way park. Illinois State Parks require no vehicle entrance fee. Negatives: Steep hills make walking in the park difficult. Not many trails of interest in the park anyway. Lake was completely green and half-covered with algae when we were there so was not appealing for swimming or canoeing. But biggest negative by far was the heavy-handed ranger and park hosts who nagged and nit-picked. I've never ever experienced that at any other private or public park I've stayed at, so camping here is simply not worth that kind of hassle. Plenty of other nicer parks in the area. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Despite the lousy weather, it's a beautiful park. We had a very level site, #23, and it was long enough for our 37ft TT and Crew Cab Pick up. Some of the sites we saw were not level, however...in fact if you were unprepared with plenty of levelers I don't know what you would do. There were probably less than 20 RV's this weekend, so we had our pick of sites (we didn't like the one assigned to us -29). The chilly and rainy weather didn't give us a lot of opportunity to take advantage of the park's offerings, but I would not hesitate to return. Some of the park's roads need repaving and/or repair. Very hilly, it's a pretty park. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Sites were not level but had a great time fishing and relaxing. The rangers were always around and count the camping unit as a motor vehicle. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Motorhome.

This was a nice park however it is VERY hilly and some sites are not very level. We camped in a MH and did not have a car with us when we camped here. The facilities are very far from the CG and a difficult walk because of the hills. For the same reason, I wouldn't recommend for bicycles either unless you are in tremendous physical shape. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Motorhome.

Well kept campground. This is also an Equestrian park, so you will see horses on the trails. Nice lake with paddleboats and rowboats. Sites were a bit close together for a state park, but nice nonetheless. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We stay here at least twice a year. There are lots of roomy, shaded sites, with ample hiking trails, horse trails, playground areas, and open spaces for the kids to play. Nearby waterpark is also inexpensive and a nice alternative to the park's swimming beach. Fishing, paddle boat, and boat rentals are available. The concession stand has started serving breakfasts, and meals on the weekends. We camped at Lake Le-Aqua Na State Park in a Travel Trailer.
