7 Parks near Penfield, Illinois
Jul 2014 - $18.00
We have camped here many times. This is a great park. The campsites are well spaced and have some privacy. They are almost all level. The park has fishing, swimming and hiking and the hosts are always pleasant. It is generally better maintained than the nearby state parks too. - CampinMike

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

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

Convenient for overnight stay. Approx one mile off 57; can see traffic from the park, but park is very quiet. Good gravel road, level gravel sites. Appear to have some seasonal. Hosts very friendly and welcoming. We would stay here again. - Sun Seeker

This is a very well-maintained park that is easy access to I-57 and excellent for an overnight stay.
The host was extremely pleasant and helpful. He led you to the site and helped with parking.
I would definitely stay here again. - davebennington

Easy access from I-57. Nice level pull through sites. Wi fi works great and the service was great. We will use this park any time we are in the area. - Bruce and Janette

We spent 1 night here after a great Champagne Snow snowfall, and our dogs loved frolicking in the snow. The area was quiet and peaceful. Since there was a snowfall, I wasn't certain if we were sitting on gravel or concrete. All in all, it was decent. A lake is across the road; my guess is it's a nice setting in summer and fall. - Sally Kely

Something happened since I was here last. I think there is a new manager. It appears that most sites are now filled with RVs that are seasonal. This left very few sites for a rig to just show up (this is a no reservations campground). The rate for 7 days was $100 plus electric which is very reasonable. Hookups were a stretch on the site that I was on but worked fine. Satellite and antenna were good and Verizon cell and Internet were strong. I come here to visit family. I may check out another campground close by the next time I'm in the area. - RVW Traveler

This is a membership Sportsmans Club. Most sites are grass. The full hookup sites are small on gravel right in the middle of the entrance. Very few sites have their own fire pit. Two types of sites, full hookup or electric with community water spigots located within a 100' or so of each site. The oddest thing is that almost every site has the power post on the passenger side if the rig. Sites are relatively level but a lot are not. For some reason, you can hear the highway noise quite a bit. It is about two miles away. Small playground but nothing much more for the kids. If you are visiting the area, it will suffice. $18 is for electric only. - Wydglide

4 units traveling together, just passing thru for a overnight stay. We had made reservations and 1 unit had trouble on the road. The management went out of her way meeting us at the office at 10PM to make sure that all units were parked correctly in the dark. Lot was spacious, mostly shady and gravel. This is a beautiful country campground.
We will definitely stay here again. - Captain Hook

Nice place for an overnight stop. Convenient to the interstate but very quiet. Large grassy areas give a feeling of spaciousness and are great for walking dogs. Enjoyed our night there and will return when traveling through the area. They were full the night we were there so reservations are definitely recommended. - all4pets

I called while on the road to see if there was a spot for an overnight with a pull thru, and was told to come on in. When we arrived the office was closed but a note was taped to the window for me telling me which site was ours and to just put the payment in the drop box. Easy Peasy. Nice easy in and out as the pull thrus are all in the front. Lot spacing was spacious ranging from sunny/open to some shade. Site surface was gravel with grass. - Da Keeffes

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
