As others have stated before, you need a VERY long cord to reach most electric boxes. We had to move sites because our cord didn't reach. They do have boat rentals and a small beach. Sites are not that level. We camped at Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

Rate reflects a Passport America rate. We enjoyed our stay here very much and greatly appreciated the warm welcome by the staff. They gave us good directions and helped us find a site which worked well for our rig. GPS is not accurate so be sure to call for directions. Most sites have nice views of the lake. Rental kayaks, bikes, and boats are available. We camped at Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina (LGLCM) is located about 7 miles south of Carbondale inside Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. It's also close to Giant City State park's lodge and hiking trails. The road through the park is black-top. The park is very secluded and was quiet during the week. There are many shady sites. LGLCM advertises 14 full hookups. Think I counted 5 full hookup sites with fairly level cement slabs in the Lake View area on top of a hill where our site was. The other full hookup sites in Lake View were gravel. All had a good view of the lake and marina below. Each site had a picnic table and fire ring. Some lake view sites were a long, long way from the electric boxes, so best to have double cables. The Trailers Rest and Circle View RV areas were water and electric only and all looked to be gravel sites. Our full hookup cost $30. LGLCM's bathrooms are separate from the showers, but in the same building. Being in park, they were kept OK clean, a few cobwebs, I'd wear my flipflops to shower. They have a small store at the marina where you register, has RV supplies, ice, firewood, fishing licenses, etc. LGLCM have a very nice marina with boat rentals. Pontoon and jon boats, canoes and kayaks. There's also has a small sandy beach away from the marina, no lifeguard, they charge to swim there. The people that ran it were friendly and helpful. We camped at Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

Shady sites; many near lake view, quiet. Only complaint is that bathrooms are separate from showers and showers have no electrical outlets. We camped at Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina in a Travel Trailer.

The boat rentals have been upgraded and work a lot better tha the old boats. Great fishing. Caught a 8 lb Bass and a 13 lb Catfish. Great tie with the kids. Beach was also nice. The water is very clean. We camped at Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

It is a nice family campground on Little Grassy Lake inside the Carb Orchard refuge. The staff and offerings were great. Nice camp store, and boat rentals on site. Will go back again! We camped at Little Grassy Lake Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.
