1 Park near Metropolis, Illinois
Jul 2015 - $20.00
Regular rate is $20/nite, holidays are $30/nite for 50 amp electric only at the site. If you make a reservation through the website for a holiday, they will require a 3 night stay but you can just drive in and have a shorter stay. It was not full for the July 4th weekend. The campground is basically 2 large grassy, paved, loops with plenty of space between each site. The sites are large and gravel. There are lots of big well-trimmed trees so your line of sight extends throughout the campground. It was beautiful and quiet here. Bathrooms were cleaned daily, but in need of an upgrade. Camp hosts were helpful and pleasant. There was substantial flooding in the park from the Ohio River, but it did not affect the campground or the roadways in/out. The Fort is closed due to the 2011 flooding issue. We loved it here. - R&S

Campground was mowed and well kept. Site was well shaded. Didn't have to use our awning. Water heater at rest rooms was not working. We had a problem with our slideout and the host advised us of area businesses that were able to help. Camped here for the Superman celebration. Will stay here again. - electrician538

The sites were large and level gravel pads. The road within the park was blacktop and easy to maneuver. Back-in parking was easy and was large enough to hold our 39' motorhome and towed vehicle. Most sites appeared to be 30 amp service with just a few 50 amp at the same price. Verizon telephone reception was good. We stopped at the host's site and paid for our site. He told us to pick out any site that did not have a reserved sign (which was most of them). It had rained heavily recently so there were a few pools of water close to the pad but not on the pad.
A nice surprise for us was a concrete bike path that started in the park and went for several miles on an old railroad bed.
We stayed for 1 night and it worked well for that but I doubt if we would spend more than a couple of nights in the park if we were to pass through again. - Ramblin On
