Nice campground, and we like it for a weekend trip, due to it being located within an hour of our house. I can remember my folks camping here many times. Nice little fishing lake, but they no longer have a bait shop, so plan accordingly. Sites are in nice shape, and the showers/restrooms are well kept and were clean and attended to. Paved roads in good shape, and gravel sights are the norm. All in all, a nice, quiet place for a relaxing weekend. We camped at Beaver Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice campground. Great restaurant for any meal we didn't want to cook. Fishing boat rental was nice. Would go back. We camped at Beaver Dam State Park in a Campground Cabin.

Very nice small state park half way between St Louis and Springfield close to the Route 66 right of way. We planned a one day stay and ended up there three nights. Friendly hosts, kid friendly, nice hiking trails, with 1.7 mile hike around the lake. Restaurant is nice, try their home made pies. Plenty to do 7 miles to the north in Carlinville. We camped at Beaver Dam State Park in a Motorhome.

We only live about 25 minutes from this park and love to go there on a whim. It fills up quickly on weekends in the summer and has great walking trails around the lake and through the woods. We enjoy riding bikes and walking the dogs. The lake is pretty. Very clean and nice campground. We camped at Beaver Dam State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Nice state park with beautiful lake and good restaurant. A limited number of sites for bigger rigs and a limited number of 50 amp sites. Sites are well shaded with helpful host and workers. Entrance roads are paved and in good shape. Campground roads are narrow and tree lined. Because of this, you should drive you towed vehicle through the campground before you drive your rig in as there are some places you may not want to drive a larger motorhome. If more sites had 50 amp I'd have given the park a higher rating. We camped at Beaver Dam State Park in a Motorhome.
