The Hickory campground was a great place to stay, very clean and well kept, and a beautiful setting right on the lake. The sites were level (all back-in), spacious and most were shaded from the afternoon sun. The staff was very friendly and helpful .... we mistakenly arrived at the another campground, and they led us over to Hickory. BTW, the other has no lake view, no flush plumbing, and no showers, so be careful which one you stay at. We camped at Sangchris Lake State Park in a Travel Trailer.

This park was a very quick run into Springfield to visit the Lincoln Museum, which was excellent.

Park was clean, nicely kept with paved interior roads super for biking. Sangchris Lake holds numerous fishing tournaments and is usually full, as the sites are excellent for boating / fishing enthusiasts. Typical Illinois park, the sites having no water, sewer or Wi-Fi; however Verizon cell reception was adequate. We camped at Sangchris Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here two nights and could have stayed longer. We will come back here again. We had a nice spot on the lake. There were no bugs and it was a quiet camp. The camp host was very nice and friendly. The site was pretty level and there was plenty of room between sites. The sites were back-in. We were at the Hickory Campground and it is the one that has lake-front sites and the showers. Great place to fish. If you have a boat there is a boat ramp nearby. We camped at Sangchris Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Deer Run campground. It was quiet, but needs some TLC or rating would be higher. The mowers cut the grass & any debris. I have picked up pieces of candy wrappers, paper plates, napkins, plastic spoon, duct tape, soda cans, etc. Tables need new wood. Fire/grill areas need weed eating. The is a lake at Hickory Point campground. Water is available at Deer Run but it's far away. A 75 ft of hos was not enough requiring a move of the RV to get close & fill up with water. Would stay here again as we need to go to Springfield occasionally. Stayed in loop A, site 12, 50 amp good, walk in site. We camped at Sangchris Lake State Park in a Motorhome.

There are two campgrounds in Sangchris Lake State Park. Deer Run Campground is the larger of the two and is without water front or view sites. Hickory Point has both water view and water front sites. Camping here in the off-season we were able to get a great site at Hickory Point right on the water, but I suspect in prime season you would definitely need reservations. The campground is neat, clean and well kept and the lake is very pretty. The staff were very nice, friendly and helpful. If you are into birding this is the place to be. The Park is about 30 minutes outside of Springfield but feels very far away and out in the country. The park is nice and dark and quite. We would definitely stay here again.
