We've been full-timing for 3 months and this was the worst park we've been at. The person at the front desk was friendly, but kept confusing credit cards, site numbers, etc. We were in the "100" numbered campground section which I would avoid at all costs. All the other sections had level sites. We "tried out" 4 sites before finding one we could make work because they were all so sloped. We watched other people come in and get super frustrated with their site. Some people left and came back with wood to raise their trailer or RV. The bathrooms had a flimsy shower in the center of the restrooms. The men's restroom had a sharp metal rusty bar down the center and was dirty. If you stay in the 200-500 section campground area you'll have level sites and cleaner bathrooms. Avoid the 100 area! We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

Nice, large park. Our loop was really small and in my opinion the best because it was small. Good space between sites. Electric only. Nice staff. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Speedway is nearby, go see a race! It was fun, but when we got back to the park found out it closes at 10:00. We had to park and walk in the dark back to our site. First state park we've been to that does that. Our fault, there is a sign that says so, we just didnt see it. No problem, we had a flashlight.

This is the first time we have camped here in a few years. The sites are pretty typical for Illinois state parks - not as large or private as we would like, but are manageable. Looking forward to staying here again when we visit with our son. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Travel Trailer.

A lot of the sites are not real level - bring your leveling blocks. Lots of nearby shopping.

Very friendly service, there is seasonal campsite supervisors here and they are filled with knowledge of the area. 100's of miles of trails, boat rentals, a concession stand that has burgers and tons of Great food. Plenty of fishing spots and quite possibly the best scenery within 500 miles. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Not too bad for a state facility in a state that suffers from deep budget cuts. Sites fairly spacious, good dump station, and interior roads. It's the exterior roads that make just getting into the park a real hassle. The roads by both entrances are completely torn up and under construction, and, unless you come from the Tollway, extremely bumpy and rough. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful park, very private sites. It felt like we were alone in the park. Very clean, including the bathrooms. A special place close to Chicago. Stayed only one night. Would come back. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The roads into this campground are paved, with gravel sites. Our site 126, was not very level. When trying to level our motorhome using even trying our leveling blocks, the front wheels ended up off the ground and we still were unable to level the unit. We walked around and noticed that many of the sites are not level. There are handicapped sites that are paved which do appear to be level. The shower house was on the cool, but did stay on for about 30 seconds at a time. The state park is beautiful and there is tons to do. There is fishing, swimming, biking, hiking, and wildlife viewing. While in the campground, we saw three turkeys, several rabbits, and a raccoon. We would probably camp here again, but would definitely seek out a more level site. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects senior discount (50%). A very nice state park with good roads. The area is hilly, so most sites will drop off from front to back or visa versa. This can be problematic for a motorhome where the rear tires must remain on the ground to hold the coach in place. I had to run the tires up on about 8” of boards to hold traction. Contacting the park for information on a site for a motorhome is recommended. The large trees eliminate satellite in most areas but local air signal has all the major channels. Verizon showed 4 or 5 bars. Sites are mixed use with tents beside RVs. Sites are 50-amp. A good dump station is near registration. We were there in July and there was heavy use of the park. There is a reduced rate for seniors and the on-line registration is good; there is a $5 registration fee. Likely we would stay there again. Rating lowered only because of the unlevel sites and issue getting information. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

Still one of our favorites! We got in late, but were able to get parked and connected easily. Love the loops, as it feels like a much smaller park. Great overnight spot (as this was for this trip) right off the tollway, and even though no pull-throughs. Used their new dump stations on the way out--excellent! They are wide, level, easy in and easy out. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

Great State Park: very well maintained, nice level lot and a pleasant staff. We stay one night while traveling, the park is only a short distant off the interstate yet very quiet. Being late in September may account in part for the quiet. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

We were here early in the year when only one loop was open. Park is beautiful but the campsites were not so great. Had to try three sites before I found one with working electric. Sites are also close together and not that level. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for two nights early in the camping season. There were still plenty of people there and everyone was very respectful. The bathrooms were clean. Small playground but very nice. We were there for a baseball tournament so we did not have a lot of time to explore, but I would definitely go back and see what else the park has to offer.

Great State Park Campground. We have stayed here twice and will definitely go back. The staff is friendly and very helpful. There is nothing really to do at the campground besides hiking, but we love to just riding our bicycles around and look at all the other sites. You can also drive a couple of miles to the lake and there are boats and other things to do on the lake. This park is great for a short, quiet get away. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice state park and, judging by the number of others here, they agree. Most sites are large and many are very secluded, surrounded by bushes and trees and grasses. Some need leveling help. Nice grassy sites with a picnic table and a fire pit with grate on each campsite. There are many activities available such as: kayaking, biking, fishing, boating, paddle-boating, etc. You can rent kayaks, bikes, paddle boats, boats, etc. They have a camp store which has things you might need but forgot like bug spray, but also firewood and food items. A restaurant is near the boat launching area with a Fish Fry on Friday nights. It also serves sandwiches, salads and ice cream. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Motorhome.

This park started with a reservation system last year. Thus you better know what site you want, when doing the on line reservation. If Just driving in, you have to ask if there are openings, and you are assigned a spot, not what I like. Years back, you registered, found your spot, placed the sticker on your post, and that was it. There was a section that always had reservation, but now the whole park is that way. We camped at Rock Cut State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
