Great setting in the woods, not on the lake ,cant even see it.Only electric hook up,no WiFi,no OAT TV,no T Mobile cell service. Showers were closed,told us to use others over a mile away. Planned a 4 day stop here,but after they offered us a 120.00 fine for our cat being outside we left,yes I know there are leash rules. We have been full time for 2 years and have never had a problem with our cat till now. No Office have to find the host. We camped at Sangchris Lake State Park, Deer Run Campground in a Motorhome.

Springfield is a short drive and has everything you need. Take a trip downtown and look at the historical stuff. Make the short drive over to Bulpitt and check out Rumors bar,great people there!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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, Deer Run Campground 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, Deer Run Campground 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, Deer Run Campground 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, Deer Run Campground in a Motorhome.

Quiet park. Would rank higher except this CG needs some TLC. Tables need new wood. Each site needs debris to be picked up. Need to weed eat around grill fire pit areas. They run the lawn mowers but don't pick up debris. Picked up at our site: pieces of candy wrappers, napkins, paper plate, a plastic spoon, plastic tie wraps, bottle caps. Also trees need to be trimmed up higher. Access to water over at other campground (Hickory Point). Would stay here again as we need to visit Springfield occasionally. Stayed in loop A (walk in). We camped at Sangchris Lake State Park, Deer Run Campground 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.

Nice place. No swimming in lake Sangchris. Really nice private tent sites, but no amenities at all except porto potty. They have nice trails and really good fishing. No more boat rental. But an okay place to camp. We camped at Sangchris Lake State Park, Deer Run Campground in a Tent.
