3 Parks near Oakwood, Illinois

Lots of deer in this park. They come right up by your RV. It is very quiet here. Electric only for hook up. There are dump stations & water available. There are showers & wash rooms. We didn't use them so I can't say if they were clean or not. Some sights might get satellite signal but we did not. We did get some over the air signals, though. We arrived about an hour before check in time & there was nobody in the booth so we just went ahead & set up in our assigned site. We went back later to register but there was still nobody there. We reserved our space ahead of time so it was paid in full. We did ask a woman who was mowing when there would be someone in the booth & she didn't know but since we paid already not to worry. So we never did register. - Connie's Co-Owner

The park was very well maintained except for the water, there was a broken water line so getting water to our trailer was not easy. There was good cell service for AT&T, it has paved roads and the sites are gravel and mostly level with the sites being a good size. We would stay there again. They do charge higher for holiday weekends. We were there for 10 days from the July 2nd to July 12th. They had the best fire rings I have ever seen in a park!
Lots of wild life in the park and campgrounds. - MAT-DAT

This is the nicest state park that we've stayed in in Illinois. The sites are large and most offer privacy from other sites. We do plan to return. - Charlie K

Park is about five miles north of I74. It is surrounded by corn and soy bean fields and is very quiet (except for the drivers on IL49 out front but they are few and far between). There is a train track south of I74 with an occasional passing train that you can hear because it is so very quiet in the park. The Five Bridges refers to the pond between the owners' home and the sites; there are five bridges across it. There are plenty of birds in the trees and shrubs around the pond and we saw a chipmunk a couple of times and heard a bullfrog. Friendly, chatty host drove us to our site and aligned us to it. There was 50A electric and water but no sewer. There was a dump site on the way out. The road gate for the park was locked at dusk but the gate by the owners' house was always open. Had a relaxing, pleasant time. Stayed three nights in a 40' motorhome while I went to my class reunion in Danville. - r.boylan

We stayed one night on a relocation trip. This is a nice distance to drive from Elkhart. Lots of grass and mature trees. Not near any freeways so it is quiet. During planting or harvesting season there could be more activity. As others mentioned we were guided across the expansive lawn area and around trees to create a pull thru slot. There is no WiFi, but we had three bars on the Verizon MiFi. We picked up several OTA TV stations. We didn't need a reservation on Saturday in Mid September. There were several other people parked here, but not crowded with decent space between slots. New Laundry equipment. We had a cement patio and picnic table. - Nana_Grandpa

Would I stay again? Yes!
The good news: pull-thru sites, large, spacious, full hookups.
Clean showers. Good rate. Quiet. Playground for kids.
The not so good: Lots of flying insects and sites are grassy, weedy, obviously not sprayed. Tables are old and rough. Shower handle was replaced with monkey wrench. Toilet stopped up.
Located next to close AFB Chanute. Felt like it wad being held together with bailing wire and gum.
About the only RV park in this stretch. - Sir_Charles395

Nice park run by the City of Rantoul, IL. Location is the former Chanute AFB that closed in 1993. The RV park is located on the grounds where the base mobile home park used to be, so odd sidewalks and driveways here and there. Host was awesome. Showers and baths in the old dental facility, musty, but clean. Nice room between sites, and you cannot beat the price for 50 AMP FHU. - Ron and Terri
