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

Grass, very unlevel, couldn't even get slides out on fronts. - Never Lost

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

This is a County owned campground! We were traveling so stopped a pull thru site for 1 night only. $25 for a night was fair. Campground was about 4 miles off of I 55. Sites were gravel and some were kind of close to level. 50 amp power, water and sewer hookups. Once we got set up we decided to checkout the bath house. Men's and Women's were both filthy and stunk. All the toilets were full of caked on feces, broken balloons were all over the floors, and it looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in a year!The floors were covered with paper towel pieces, and horribly dirty! First and last time for us, we will never be back because of the condition of the bath houses. Too bad as campground is nice and area seems nice too. - LaMonte

Rate reflects weekly rate. The place was practically empty being pre-Memorial Day. Most others were on the FHU on grass; it was too crowded for us. The FHU on asphalt wasn't appealing. Tall grass spot with W+E with no one else near was our choice. They have a dump station. The grass around us eventually got mowed. These spots are very closely spaced and most were on a slope. No picnic table or fire ring.
If it were a busy time, then you may have a different experience. Loved walking around the grounds. Shower house was large and heated (it was chilly out), but not very clean. Same clumps of hair were still there after a week. Check out how the water comes out before committing to a stall. When we arrived, the CG manager took us for a ride around the grounds; how cool is that?! (Not something they normally do.)
They said we could have mail delivered there, but UPS couldn't figure it out. Luckily we had a few days to resolve it by my going to UPS to pick up my package.
They had a free concert while we were here. - MichelleKry

This was our first night in the RV having picked it up earlier that day and never having driven one before; we arrived late and tired and the gentleman in charge was so helpful and kind in making sure we were hooked up properly as we didn't have a clue!
The campground is in a very convenient location and is very well maintained. - Anne Haworth

I have stayed at this campground many times. It is always a nice stay; however, shower curtain was moldy, but by end of stay most were changed out with new. We have already book our next stay here for Labor Day weekend. - dwin a-frame

The lots are big but hardly any shade. This is a relative new campground set on the prairie. Trees have been planted and in time will provide shade. We had a problem with water. The faucet leaked very badly and had to be turned off when we were not using it. If left turned on the water flooded the driveway out to the road. Reported the leakage to campground host and he said parts were on order. Campground host was very friendly and the campground was quiet. We used the campground as a stopping point to visit other places and did not explore the park. - CyberRanger

This is a very open prairie style campground. You won't have privacy between your camping neighbors but if you are going to be exploring other areas of the park with your toad then this might not be a problem. Nice lake with plenty of hiking trails but there is a massive tick population ready to pounce. We returned from our hike with 30 ticks between the four of us. Hookups are dandy, just wish there was more private sites. Only the inside sites have the full hookups, the outer sites are electric only. Camp hosts are very polite and helpful. They deliver ice and firewood to your site if needed. Bring bikes, kayaks, fishing poles etc., to keep busy. Surrounded by small towns without a lot of action so make sure to be fully stocked up on fun and food/goodies before you pull in. I imagine this place is super hot in the dead summer due to lack of trees over the campground. If you like a lot of woods and trees, this is not the park for you. - redshoe

An adequate park for those wanting to explore Lincoln land, mostly given over to seasonal pipeline workers. The guy next to us had his car hood up and his gas tank removed all day. The park needs an overall cleanup/raking. Bath house was old and dark, but clean and functional. CATV excellent. - ebdavis

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

We stayed a little over 3 weeks while on vacation back in the seasonal camper area. Gravel roads in campground, a little rough and had many potholes. Facilities were clean upfront in the general area, but the seasonal bathroom/shower area was lacking. Campers and owners were polite and fun, planned weekend events, music every other weekend. Only issue was owner was a little lax in his duties, paddle boats upside down in pond for days, fishing docks in ponds broken and sunk in water. Seasonals had to really get on him to get things done or fixed. We had our 30amp electrical outlet burn up and burn the end off a new cord, was without power, no air in 87 degree weather. Was told it would be a while before he could fix it. My husband is an electrician so, he gave us an outlet and we fixed it ourselves!! Customer service goes a long way is all I'm saying. - Princessmoo10

Nice campground for seasonal units or weekend campers. Too far off of the interstate for overnight camping, and roads leading to campground are very narrow with little to no shoulder. Nice restroom facilities, trash around cabins/tent area, narrow roads. - araucanaman

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
