We were here for a Telephone Pioneer Camping Rally with 18 other campers. Very nice campground. Closes town about 10 miles away. Would stay here again if in the area. - skiphen

Nice level, shaded sites. Friendly owners, quiet park. Plenty of room for the traveler not staying the season. Seasonals are located on outside of park. Very family friendly. AT&T/Sprint/Verizon cell service ok. Lots of off the air channels. Would be good if you had a dish to set up. Can get campfire smoky on weekends. Price reflects cash with Passport America. Great weekly rate. Tons of birds, near Illinois fish hatchery, conservation areas for birding. - DocColorado

Not many lights in the campground which makes it very dark at night..I guess that's where they got the name: Evening Star. Hosts was very accommodating. - ibar45

Would have been $15 if we had been from Illinois! Electric only, but water and dump available. Beautiful park area. - Merikay MacKenna

Very clean showers although dated. Very level sites with good electric. Some in our group had difficulty with the 30 amp. Needed to use 50 with a 30 adapter.
Quiet and restful. Nice shelter for meetings/meals. Decent dump station.
New Salem Village was very interesting although there was only one busy volunteer who gave a good background on the village. Paved drives that made a nice thing for walkers. - Oldbug76

The park is dated, could definitely use some updates - but then Illinois is broke so doubt they are putting $$ into their parks. We had issues with the 30 amp electrical. Illinois doesn't refund at state parks, so we were without power for two nights. The host was very helpful on day 3 and suggested plugging into a 50 amp with a 30 amp adapter - that worked! Something with the 30 amp ground. (Wonder if this is common at this park as two other RVs had the same problem.) - Med

This is a small campground in the middle of corn country. We needed a spot with full hookups for one nite and this met our needs. Right on the side of the road but traffic was minimal. Good Verizon service. Good TV reception over the antenna. Owner very friendly. - smitty12

Good place for an overnight stop. Sites are close together and we were in an afternoon shaded back-in spot. Were able to stay hooked up to tow vehicle. - h and e

Rate reflects a 15% Good Sam discount. This is a very small RV park nestled in the corn fields. It is located on a side road with little traffic, so noise is not a real problem, even though you are parked close to the road. There are only a few sites that can take a big rig. We had one of the back-in sites in the dead-end part of the park, and could only maneuver in as the sites across from us were empty, otherwise, there was not enough swing room to back in. The owner is very friendly and helpful. AT&T and Verizon signals were good. The water is nice and soft and has good pressure. Over the air TV reception pulls in the networks out of Springfield and that is about it. The only reason we would probably not stay here again is that it was difficult to take the dog for long walks, as the only place to walk was along the roadway, otherwise it was a nice place to stay. - Greyt-Parent

We stayed here in early March as my husband was in town hunting snow geese. We absolutely loved this city park! It was our first time camping in a city park and there was so much to do and see, especially for our kids. The campground is located right next to the Illinois River and has wonderful views of the river itself. The park is a quick walk away, with two playgrounds, picnic areas, a walking trail and an amazing view of the town's bridge. There are 12 sites here, with electrical and water hook ups. Since we were here in the off-season, we did not have water hook ups or restroom facilities as both were closed off for the season, so if you plan to come during the off-season make sure you come equipped with water and restroom facilities. A quick drive over the town's bridge takes you to the heart of the Illinois wildlife country. The Emiquon National Wildlife Refuge is about a 10 minute drive from the campground and is worth a visit. It's unreal! The amount of waterfowl we saw was incredible and we were fortunate to see 10 eagles over the course of the weekend. We will definitely be staying in this campground when we return to the area. This little town knows how to utilize it's riverfront and the outskirts of town are just beautiful. Although she wasn't staying on site yet, the host of the campground came by and introduced herself and provided a lot of helpful information. We will be back! - Erika Rene

As its name implies, the park is adjacent to the Illinois river. The sites are all back-in and pads are about 40 ft in length with some additional room at the back. Bathroom is at the nature center just across the entry road. Pads are gravel with grass in between. There is a water connection for each site but most are at the back of the sites and shared between two sites so require a long hose. Dump station is along the road along the park. Passes to the nearby swimming pool are available during the season.
The park is well kept and the nature center and nearby boat launch ramp are well used by the town residents. It is a typical riverfront park, only 5-10 feet above river level so it has nice views of the river. That also makes it subject to seasonal flooding so be sure to call ahead for conditions, especially in the spring.
It is just a short walk to the downtown area where there is a hardware store, Dollar store and a few restaurants, Grandpa's was quite good. Nice walking trails in the park and a longer trail out to a river island if the water is not too high. The Emiquon Nature Preserve is just across the river as is Dixon Mounds Museum. - oldmac

This is our 3rd time to stay at this park. We were meeting with a group of people that stat at Sun Light RV park in McAllen, tx in the winter. A lot of the people are from this area, so they have a get together each year in July. Great park and we had a great time. - Seemore

This is a nice campground. Pros: The grounds are well kept, there are two stocked ponds for fishing, hosts are friendly, bathrooms were very clean. There are many activities scheduled, such as bingo, fish feeding, and a country Opry show. This campground has two playground areas. One is average and the other one is fantastic! The entrance to the playground is a giant slide called 'Big Red.' The playground at the bottom of the slide is very nice. The campground was generally quiet during the day, and just about silent during quiet hours (10 p.m. - 8 a.m.) Cons: The area of the campground we were in had very, very, very small sites. There are really no attractions nearby. It was fine for a weekend, but any longer of a stay and we would have been bored. All in all, we were very pleased and plan on returning. - rollinrollinrollin

This is a nice campground located about 25 miles from Peoria. It's an older facility, but well-maintained. Sites are level and roomy. There are quite a few seasonal campers here, but during our midweek stay we didn't see many people. The bathhouses are rustic and reasonably clean (not spotless). Off air TV reception is good and my Verizon 4G worked okay for a web connection. This property runs public country music shows every Saturday night during the summer, and since we're here at midweek I don't know what impact that has on the ambience of the park. - DrLewie

This park has a lot of potential, but it needs better care. We stayed here for two days to explore the nearby Lincoln sites. The men's bathrooms were filthy. We felt sorry for the tent campers. They had to use them. We did not get a sewer connection, so we had to use the showers. The showers were clean, but the ventilation had much to be desired. People living in the park should also clean up their sites. Some had trash bags outside for two days. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful, and the park is convenient to shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. The roads could also use some TLC. - On road less traveled

Grass, very unlevel, couldn't even get slides out on fronts. - Never Lost
May 2015 - $25.00
The man who checked us in was very friendly. The campground was grassy and treed with gravel parking spots that were not very level. The sites were close together and most of the other RVs were very old and in bad shape. The campground was bordered with a run-down mobile home park which was not separated by a fence. A train track runs close to the park and a train can be heard several times per day. The roads were full of potholes. But it was an okay park for the price considering we had sewer at our site in addition to water and electricity. - mountainfan
