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

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

We were staying only one night. The owner filled us in on what they had to offer. Wide pull-through sites, well shaded with mature trees. A nice pond that's stocked for fishing! Great place to walk a dog, both in the campground and on a dead-end road nearby. The owners are wonderful! Friendly and helpful. On our way out of the park, through our own fault, we hit a fire ring and destroyed two tires on our trailer. The owners pulled those tires off our trailer and contacted the tire dealer in Vandalia to make sure they had the tires we needed. While I was gone, they were concerned about my wife's being outside in the cold and would have invited her in to stay warm with them (except that she was walking the dog off the property, so they couldn't find her). When I got back they remounted the tires so we could quickly get back on our way. And they were very understanding about our having uprooted the fire ring. - grayfox

We have stayed here before and once again it was just an over night stop. The WiFi was great but no TV reception. Very handy that they do propane fills on site. As a special treat, the owner took a photo of the beautiful sunset and sent it to me by email! Very thoughtful. - Let'sGo!

We use this park for an overnight stay. Owner is pleasant to deal with, overnight sites are gravel but well maintained and fairly level. Easy to pull thru for our 37' travel trailer, E/W/S hookups all worked well. Close to I-70 but road noise is low due to trees and an embankment. Our stay was quiet, there is some low volume train noise. Enjoyed our walks around the lake after a days drive. We could get 1 antenna TV station, our Verizon phones worked fine. There are several permanent trailers in the park, but they are mostly in a different area of the park. - Arlen

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

Old, unlevel, rocky graveled road for one mile, 3 pull throughs, Unkept park,hard to find the right roads to get there. Would not go there again. - Berry Patch
May 2017 - $35.00
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

Short term sites are very close! We had to be careful opening our slide without bumping into our neighbors awning! Our end site was bearly long enough to accommodate us. It was quiet allowing for a good nights sleep. Very tight turns but doable if you swing wide as the signs state. Verizon and Direct were good. - Full timer with dogs
