3 Parks near Springfield, Illinois
Sep 2015 - $20.00
We camped here for the Springfield mile and the campgrounds were very crowded, but the staff who welcomed us in acted as though we were the only customers that they had to deal with. They helped us find out site and when it would not accommodate our rig, helped us find a different one. We suggest that you try to camp in section F near the road but under a lot of shade trees. Some of the sites are in a parking lot including all the full hookups. We did not have full hookup, but there is a well-designed dump station. The bathhouse was fairly clean considering the large number of guests using it, but the showers have water restrictors on them so not much water came out. The reason to stay here is for the convenience to the race track, but the kindness of the campground staff made it even more pleasant. - Cathy S

We stayed at this park for 2 nights while visiting some of the Lincoln historic sites. We were fortunate that the park was fairly empty and we had a choice of our sites. It was difficult to level the coach because of the slant of the site, but, after blocking we were successful. The sites had full 30 amp service, water and sewer. The restrooms are spartan and showers are typical campground. Good place to stay overall. Hosts were friendly and helpful. Would stay again. - bostonblackie

We where in the parking lot which was okay we where here to see the historical sites. Our space D-14 was level. If I come back I'd park here again. Yes the sewer was way back there but I bought extra hose after being in some gov parks that need more hose. So that wasn't a problem with that.
I don't know if they have rules about dog but for three days some one had there dog on a chain outside BARKING and camp guy would just drive his golf cart. Now the camp guy was very helpful on how to get to place down town and where to park very helpful.
If you like walking going thru and around the fair is nice. Also lot of free stuff going on they had a 4h horse riding competition jumping, doing figure riding, costume and other things. Also had farmers market with a band, vegetables and wine tasting. - JustDon

Grass, very unlevel, couldn't even get slides out on fronts. - Never Lost

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

For a change of pace, we decided to take I-55 south from the Chicago area rather than I-57. This park is about 10 minutes (5-7 miles depending on which exit (88 or 94 you are using to get here)) from the interstate. The last mile is a narrow gravel road. The park is nestled in the middle of farms and most of the park is treed. Per their handout, there about 45 FHU sites with about half being pull-through and half back-to-back back-ins. There are also W&E sites, electric only, no hookups, and tent sites. There are also half a dozen cabins. We were in a row of FHU, pull-through sites on the west side of that park that had maybe 7-8 sites that were satellite friendly. Because we were able to get satellite and, being <300 miles from home (meaning we could get our home network channels), we did not bother to hook up to their cable. As shown in the handout, their are 24 cable channels and all you need to do is make the "normal" connection. Because their immediate area did not have cable service years ago, this park has their own satellite based system that they feed to the sites. Their WiFi worked fine. Of course, there were only about 20 other customers in the park so the internet performance might be different in a crowded park. Typical of KOAs, there were plenty of recreational facilities: a pool (closed for the season), a playground with older equipment, a small dog park, horseshoes, b-ball, volleyball, mini-golf, etc. The laundry (4 of each machine @ $1.50 each) and bath/shower facilities are in the main building. They are older, but clean. The office has small store area and some game tables. The park has propane for sale. Although some of the 20 RVs here might have been extended stay, I don't think anyone stays here all year (I think the park closes Nov. 1). I found the woman (owner?) in the office to be friendly and informative. - Jerry S

Rate reflected is using KOA points, and a $6.00 charge for 50 amp.
We stayed one night as a pass through area on on way to Indiana.
We arrived at our very nice, pull through site, to find it littered with trash and tons of cigarette butts on the ground and in the fire pit. Come on people... When you leave a campsite, it should be cleaner than when you found it!
I interrupted the hostesses dinner, and she had to call for my points, and seemed a little irritated by it, but she was still nice.
This is a very nice park, and spots are quite spacious.
I requested a rooftop satellite friendly space, which we received. The rest of the park was very nice, surrounded by trees and fields, and oh so quiet at night. We got a great nights sleep to continue with our travels in the morning. - Mr&MrsFulltimers

Available spot for our 28' RV that night. Clean, level spot. Clean showers and restroom. Nice little pool. In a quiet farming area down a big, hilly road. RV did fine driving on it and the kids loved the ride. We pulled in after hours and the registration was easy - well marked map for us on the registration board. Big, grassy field across from the RV spots. Our spot was adjacent to a corn field! Surprised to see you had to pay for the jumpy pillow - never seen a KOA do that before. We will definitely come back if we are in the Springfield area again! - BeeDee
