An adequate park for those wanting to explore Lincoln land, mostly given over to seasonal pipeline workers. The guy next to us had his car hood up and his gas tank removed all day. The park needs an overall cleanup/raking. Bath house was old and dark, but clean and functional. CATV excellent. - ebdavis

Grass, very unlevel, couldn't even get slides out on fronts. - Never Lost
May 2015 - $25.00
The man who checked us in was very friendly. The campground was grassy and treed with gravel parking spots that were not very level. The sites were close together and most of the other RVs were very old and in bad shape. The campground was bordered with a run-down mobile home park which was not separated by a fence. A train track runs close to the park and a train can be heard several times per day. The roads were full of potholes. But it was an okay park for the price considering we had sewer at our site in addition to water and electricity. - mountainfan

This is a County owned campground! We were traveling so stopped a pull thru site for 1 night only. $25 for a night was fair. Campground was about 4 miles off of I 55. Sites were gravel and some were kind of close to level. 50 amp power, water and sewer hookups. Once we got set up we decided to checkout the bath house. Men's and Women's were both filthy and stunk. All the toilets were full of caked on feces, broken balloons were all over the floors, and it looked as if it hadn't been cleaned in a year!The floors were covered with paper towel pieces, and horribly dirty! First and last time for us, we will never be back because of the condition of the bath houses. Too bad as campground is nice and area seems nice too. - LaMonte

This was our first night in the RV having picked it up earlier that day and never having driven one before; we arrived late and tired and the gentleman in charge was so helpful and kind in making sure we were hooked up properly as we didn't have a clue!
The campground is in a very convenient location and is very well maintained. - Anne Haworth

Gate 10 does close early, gate 11 is open all night. We stayed down in asphalt parking lot so we would have good satellite reception. Had full hook ups, 50 amp. The fence referred to in another review was a guard rail set up, and really no big deal to get to the sewer hook up. Price was a good deal! Go in Gate 11. Office opens at 11:30am. Can be full at Fair time, or big events. Check ahead. - Merikay MacKenna

We stayed one night passing through the area. The park was several miles off of I-55 but the quietness of the campground was well worth it. This is an older campground, gravel sites, all of our utilities worked well. Our site had no shade trees, but that didn't matter for our one night stay. The directional signage from the south I-55 entrance was excellent, it would have been hard to find this campground without those. It is all paved roads to the campground, trees are kept trimmed back well to prevent hitting your camper. The one lane bridge was no problem to navigate. The owner was very helpful and friendly. - Arlen

This park is very far off the beaten path and therefore very quiet. We stayed in a back-in overflow area with water and electric only because a weekend event had filled up the rest. The pool looked inviting. The mini-golf needed some TLC. We will stay here again if the others are full. - exceltraveler

Once you get this far north in early November, it get hard to find a FHU park. This is our first time here and we had a level, gravel, pull through, FHU site in a treeless row on the southern edge of the park. As requested, our site was satellite friendly. This satellite friendly row, however, does not have cable TV. Most sites are in the trees and are gravel, pull through, FHU with 12 channel cable TV. There is also some antenna reception (their listing shows a dozen channels - some of which duplicate the network channels on the cable). There are maybe 20 back in sites, plus a dozen or so primitive tent sites and a large open area for group tent camping. There were maybe 30 RVs in the park and many of those appeared to be unoccupied the night we were here. As a result, the Wi-Fi worked fine for our minimal e-mail and web surfing needs. The main bathrooms (3 sinks, 1 urinal, 2 stalls, and 3 showers) and a laundry room with 6 machines are in the basement level of what appears to be the owner's residence. This is just passed the office, pool, mini-golf course, shuffleboard, and a fire ring at the park entrance. There is a satellite bathhouse in the middle of the park that is near the recreational (pool, playground, pavilions, a fire ring, basketball (terrible rims) court, horseshoes, etc.) amenities. This bathhouse was already closed for the year. According to their park map, there is a dumpster marked "recycling" across from the office, but I did not check it out so I do not know what kinds of recycling are accepted. The couple I dealt with were friendly and helpful. They may have been the owners. I am guessing that this is a really busy and booming park in the summer and especially on weekends. They probably have sites taken for weeks, months, etc. $40 is a bit high for this time of year, but just finding a FHU site made the cost bearable. Limited cable and not knowing how well the Wi-Fi works when the park is full keeps the rating down a bit. - Jerry S

We stayed for an overnight rest on a trip from Goshen, IN to Fayetteville, AR. We made a phone reservation from the road about an hour out. The staff were very friendly and helpful, telling us if we couldn't make it before normal hours they would accommodate us when we got there. Check in was quick and easy.
I don't recall the rate, but this entry required a number so the $30 is a guess. The hostess was super friendly and had great pride in her park. We were guided to our site and assisted in parking. We had a great spot (can't recall the number) with lots of room and a great view of a field. Fantastic sunset view as we grilled some burgers. I wish we had a few days to spend in the area, we will stay her for sure. - Mark and Lynne

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. - Moundstation

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. - Pamela & Gerald

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. - Peter K

Very clean showers although dated. Very level sites with good electric. Some in our group had difficulty with the 30 amp. Needed to use 50 with a 30 adapter.
Quiet and restful. Nice shelter for meetings/meals. Decent dump station.
New Salem Village was very interesting although there was only one busy volunteer who gave a good background on the village. Paved drives that made a nice thing for walkers. - Oldbug76

The park is dated, could definitely use some updates - but then Illinois is broke so doubt they are putting $$ into their parks. We had issues with the 30 amp electrical. Illinois doesn't refund at state parks, so we were without power for two nights. The host was very helpful on day 3 and suggested plugging into a 50 amp with a 30 amp adapter - that worked! Something with the 30 amp ground. (Wonder if this is common at this park as two other RVs had the same problem.) - Med

City is actually Jeisey, not Kincaid. Lots of space and large lots designed as a place for mobiles, their RV rentals are mostly long term. Nice lady owns the park. Free washer and dryer but no WiFi or cable TV. There are spaces with phone hook-ups. Near Springfield and Taylorville for doing genealogy stuff. - PDDeen
