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. We camped at Ramsey Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Ramsey Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

It's only 11/2 hr. from St Louis. The best bonus is that there is a nice 9 hole course 1/2 mile down the road. $15 w/ a cart. I left my clubs there and just bike there from the park.

We stay a few times a year here at Ramsey Lake state park. It is a beautiful park and very well maintained by their friendly crew there. They even have a equine campground area that it supposed to undergo renovation. No complaints, love this park. We camped at Ramsey Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

The only thing this park had going for it was a very nice 9 hole golf course about a mile away. The course has very friendly owners and inexpensive rates. One other plus was that it is close to a grocery store and gas station. There were no garbage receptacles anywhere close, I had to carry to the dump station which was quite a ways from the campsites. We camped at Ramsey Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

This is a 1,960 acre State park that is open all year long. The park is located in a rolling hill type setting, off US highway 51, just 2 miles north of the town of Ramsey. Of the 91 class A camp sites located in the White Oak section, approximately 40 of these sites are reservable. There also is one rental cabin in the park that enjoys a lake view. The one down side to the park is that there is only one camp shower/rest room building in the entire park, but water hydrants are located throughout the park. There also are two dump station located close to the main park entrance. The one hiking trail is 2 1/2 miles long, and quite hilly in spots. The Park also has an equestrian section, located in the Northern part of the park that has about 15 miles of wooded trails for the horse people. For Info Ramsey Lake State Park P. O Box 97 Ramsey, Il 618-423-2215 We camped at Ramsey Lake State Park in a Fifth Wheel.
