We love this campground! We camp nearly 3 weekends out of the month most of the time and this place has nearly everything or it's nearby. We usually camp with friends so we enjoy some of the buddy sites. The only complaint we have about this is that there is only one buddy site with full service in the entire park and some of the buddy sites are not set up very well and in need of rethinking for the layout. There are many of them that the campers are door to back of your buddies camper and others that one of the two sites are set up backwards from all camper set ups. Meaning your door will be on the wrong side of the site so you can't use a camper attached awning and you have to walk around your camper to get to the table and fire ring unless you have a small camper and get creative. Other than that there is a site for everyone and every style here. Group, secluded, sunny, tree covered, water front, in the hills, and group style areas. Like I said this is a great place and even has boat launch if you have that kind of money lol. We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.

Coon Creek Campground in Shelbyville Illinois is a Corps of Engineers park. The campground is very clean, with several large pull through lots, a few of which are full hookups. We very much enjoyed our stay with our camping club in this park. The only thing that we would have liked better is if the grass would have been cut. If you use the America the Beautiful Pass, the rates are $12 per night for a full hook up and $9 per night for electric only. The fishing on Lake Shelbyville was great. We would recommend this park to others. We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Very spacious sites but not very level. Camp store ok but sold me green fire wood so no fire for us. The upside I was told later that we could collect and burn any downed trees even bring chainsaw to cut if needed. Too cold and rainy to do a whole lot but still good weekend camping. We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Tent Trailer.

This is an awesome campground on a beautiful lake. We were fortunate to get one of the FHU sites - #227. This is a very large pull through site. The park is well maintained and clean. There is a rather long trip through several farms (corn, corn, and more corn) to reach the campground, but it's worth it. The price reflects the 1/2 price national park pass price - so well worth it for FHU. The lake levels were dropping while we were there, and we had fun fishing from our kayak. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Camped here as a child and enjoyed our trip back as adults. Was more of a place to stay this time as we visited family. Has had high water levels so beach and boat ramps were closed, but campground was still full. We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Tent Trailer.

We love Coon Creek!! The buddy sites are awesome, especially number 17. But please don't book it because we love it. Just kidding. The restrooms and showers definitely need some work and cleaning, but they have done some fixing up this year. Sites are somewhat private but could be spaced out more. Most sites have good access to the water, however you may have a steep hill. Just check them out before you book if possible. They have a really nice CG store with licenses, fish stuff, bait, food, ice, toys, souvenirs, etc. but at a pretty hefty price. So don't forget anything...Overall we love Coon Creek, but if you can't get a site there Opossum Creek is pretty good too!! We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Tent.

Don't bother with this area. The route to the CG is narrow, winding through cornfield back to the middle of nowhere. The sites are short. The site I reserved was displayed as a buddy site, for two trailers, 40 feet long. The actual site was 1 driveway, 30 feet long, and room for a buddy tent, MAYBE a popup. The roads are paved, but narrow. The shower house was moldy, and extremely dated, with many years of caulk over caulk, cracked fixtures, and no hot water. There are many other nicer places to spend your hard earned dollars in Illinois. The Corps of Engineers needs to review this CG, and give it an Extreme Makeover. We camped at Coon Creek COE in a Travel Trailer.
