We loved the campground with its beautiful old shade trees, birds, and the sounds of frogs lulling us to sleep at night. Truly loved it. Even though there were quite a few people there, everyone was quiet. The only problem was with the campground policies/facilities, not sure what to call it. 1. Excessive night-time lighting. FOUR stadium-sized light poles with stadium-level bright lights around one picnic area that of course never gets used at night. These lights bothered us all the way over in the campground. In addition to that, many of these tall, excessively bright lights were placed throughout the campground. So be careful where you set up and look for the light poles if you do not want to have to wear a sun visor at night. I'm not kidding; it is that bad at the sites where the poles are. In areas not lit up - the fireflies glittered in the trees - beautiful. 2. Excessive mowing. Up into hills, through large areas in between rows, between all the campsites, all the way to the edges of everything. I would truly hate to be here during mowing week (or mowing month?) It would take a long time to mow all these areas, and anyone camping there would be bothered by the duration. This c/g was closed in May 2016 due to budget constraints. Perhaps if the lights were turned down and mowing cut by half, it would not cost so much to run this campground. Other than these two very odd things, this beautiful place is a real treasure. - 82_

We stayed on a weeknight in early May. Sites were a bit close, but that was not an issue since there were only 4 other campers on the grounds. Very clean and well maintained. We had a spot overlooking the lake. Restrooms and showers were very clean. - John31

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend and of course the campground was EXCEPTIONALLY busy. There was lots of traffic in the park, but overall it was a great place to stay. The 'sites' aren't actually sites at all. You are allowed to park any way you like as all of the camp is grass. Nearly all of the electric sites are situated near the lake. The campground is nice, and for the number of people there exceptionally quiet. We truly enjoyed our stay. In fact, we are planning a trip back two weeks from today. One downfall however, when we stayed the water that is available from the faucets is well water. This water is high in iron content, and although I was assured it was safe, appeared green to me. So bring plenty of fresh water! - Stlheadake

Everything in the previous review is correct. Wanted to add a few more details. The sites (except #8) are basically back-ins but you can pull-thru to your site by driving down to the end of the row and pulling thru an empty site. That way you will drive along the back side of the RV sites & then be able to pull-thru to your site. Electric was excellent with 50/30/20 amp connections. Nice hardware store (owners of the RV Park) across the street. Be sure to ask at the hardware store for some tokens to "feed the dragon" to get him to breathe fire! Very quiet & peaceful at night. No restrooms available. - TravelnSteve

This is a fairly new park, right off of I-70, with easy access, off and on. There are only 12 sites, so it is small. There no amenities, and you have to register at the hardware store across the street from the park. When we checked in, we were told to go pick an empty site. The sites are basically back-ins, but if there is space available, you can pull thru one site to park into another site, which is what we did. We like how spacious the sites where, with plenty of room to park another vehicle, in front, behind, or beside your RV. The connections are clearly marked, and we had no problem getting connected. There is no cable TV and antenna TV was lacking, but the satellite TV worked just fine. There is no Wi-Fi, but our hotspots worked well. If you stay here, make sure watch the dragon, as he spouts fire out of his snout. Across the street, from the park, you will find a liquor store, a laundromat, car/dog wash, and the hardware store. - Bbtj

Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park is a new park right along highway 70 and has only 12 spaces; all have full hookups with 50 amp service. Since we were just passing through and only needed a place to sleep comfortably for the night, I was searching for a good, freeway-close inexpensive park. We almost didn't stay at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park because there were no reviews and I wasn't sure about the dragon part! But I called and felt comfortable with what I heard and with the person I spoke with so we decided to give them a try. And we're glad we did! The spaces are along a side road; they are all in a row and nicely graveled. Each space is back-in, has plenty of room and are long enough for a larger RV; ours is 34 feet. You go over to the hardware store to check in and pay. When you do, they give you tokens to put in the dragon so you can watch him breathe fire at the little knight in not-so-shiny armor. It's quite entertaining! Right across the street from the park is a liquor store, very clean laundromat, a dog wash facility, and a little car wash. We did our laundry. While the dragon might imply this is a great place for kids, it isn't really a kid's park. Although there is a nice big grassy area around the dragon. We had a very comfortable stay and would definitely stay here again if passing through. - Ree Klein

Overnight stop, cute little park. nice walking area around lake and back of property for the dogs to stretch their legs after a travel day. Bathhouse was clean, water pressure decent. Friendly folks at checkin, easy on/off for interstate, everything we needed to be comfortable. - DaBlairs

Great overnight stop. Clean, very nice people in the office, level pull through site. The only issue was no satellite service due to trees and very low Verizon signal. There is a pool and a little lake stocked with fish. We did not have rain but I can see it might be a little muddy on some sites if there were a lot of rain. Would stop here again. - Rambleinthebramble

We have stayed at this park numerous times over the years and really like it for an overnight stop. There are many permanent residents but, for the most park, their sites are neat and well-kept. The large pull-thru sites at the front of the park do not have sewer hook-ups but the dump station is convenient on the road leaving the park and there are sites that do have sewers located back farther in the park. The owners are super nice - actually, a young couple have just taken over from the former owners (parents, I believe) and were very friendly and helpful. We were escorted to our site. All utilities worked well but there is no cable and we were unable to get wi-fi at all. The road leading in is gravel but relatively smooth and level. We will definitely stay here again. - SandyA

This is mostly occupied by permanent, weekend get-a-way campers. A decent overnight stop with easy enough highway access and a very helpful manager. A lot of trash/junk/brush piles scattered through the park.
Quiet during the week but the crowd shows up on Friday evening. Feels a bit like you're crashing someone else's party. A few too many 'wife-beater' shirts and confederate flags for my taste. - GretasDad

Lots of deferred maintenance, very tight turns, pot holes in the roads. We had a tight pull through. The 50 amp plug was broken and the park person said 'well, we haven't had any problems.'. We stayed here only because friends had made the reservation. It is a serviceable place to stay but we would not come back if other campgrounds were in available. Restrooms were clean but had a rather 'home made with plywood look.' - Skip Pratt

Incredibly tight roads with warning signs. Very narrow tight spaces. Our awning would hit our neighbor. Appear to be a number of long term families with small children. It's a lovely wooded area and the surroundings are nice. The spaces are unshaded and quite tight.
We're likely to look at other options next time we pass through. As with many parks, the pictures on the web paint a nicer picture than reality. - Ken Camp

Where do the high ratings for this RV Park come from? When we pulled in here my Wife said, "Wow, they sure hired a good photographer for their website." The photos on the website are real, but they look so much better than the place does in real life. This is a campground in a rural setting a mile off of a major interstate that has 90% residents and 10% overnighters.
It would not be possible for us to describe this CG as a nice place and good value. Perhaps, it's best described as adequate or maybe serviceable.
Some examples of the issues here would be the subpar roads within the park. There are many "tight turn" signs and the trees lining the entrance roads are all scared from past scrapes with RVs. Just walking into the CG office gives you a feeling you've chosen the wrong CG for the night. You'll also find slapdash construction of plywood structures (multiple such structures) that give a decidedly shoddy appearance to the place. This includes bath houses with only one very old and well-used toilet and toilet/shower stalls made of plywood. Oddly the stalls had doors that were only ~20" or so wide.
After having stayed here we have no idea how it got rated as highly as it has but we can't agree with them. - Creativepart
