We were charged $42 one night and $39 another night. The two different rates reflect one night that we were charged an extra 3 dollars for 50 amp and another 3 dollars for air conditioning. After questioning why the extra 6 dollars, the next night we were only charged an extra 3 dollars. Sites are level and long but the interior roads and sites are in bad need of more gravel. It rained and there were many muddy puddles. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Like others have said, a bit off the interstate, but not really that far. After hours check-in is easy as previously stated, unless someone else is ignorant to campground etiquette and takes your assigned spot. That isn't mostly the fault of the campground, although we have been in plenty of them who go to the effort of listing the available sites in the after-hours box. This time it wasn't a problem, but with medical equipment it easily could have been. Power is good, and water pressure is good. Our site is satellite friendly, although their website led us to believe that it wouldn't be. Having said that, we will more than likely return, making sure that we arrive during office hours. Our assigned site would have made tomorrow morning's egress from our site much, much easier. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

My husband and I stayed here in a motorhome for 5 months (hence the $20/night rate) during the summer of 2014, in order to visit family. The place couldn't have been better. We also stayed in one of the cabins while our RV was serviced. We highly recommend this campground. The owners and staff are friendly and helpful. They went out of their way to make this a good experience. (I hate camping myself, but they made it bearable!) Pool was always clean. Mini golf is in great shape. Grounds are kept mowed and beautiful. They've added an adorable dog run that my dogs loved. They could go without their leashes in it and enjoyed their freedom. The campground has a back area with lush grass and woods to take walks in - with raspberries for the picking! There's a very clean laundry facility. Though we didn't need the bathrooms/showers, I did peek in and they were very clean. Tons of stuff for kids to do - including a huge jump thing that looks like a safe trampoline, and these silly little bikes that kids LOVE!! It's definitely family oriented, but it wasn't nuts. They didn't have organized activities, which was nice. Folks were able to relax and let their kids play in the huge playground and let the kids ride those bikes all over the campground, knowing everyone was safe. The place is in the quiet, beautiful country - no road noise or other annoying distractions. The owners are pet lovers as well, and made even our dogs feel welcome. There's plenty of tent spaces too. The cabin we had overnight allowed our dogs and was cute as can be! It had a nice bathroom, double bed and a set of bunk beds. Looked brand new and very clean. Had TV and air conditioning and a comfortable little porch with chairs and a grill, as well as the fire pit that the sites all have. The campground has a game room and a small store for necessities (and ice cream!). Can't say enough good about the owners. Awesome people. Also has a large covered deck for big groups. I've gone on and on, but still haven't said it all! Come here - you'll love it too! We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice campground, but about 5 miles off the interstate. Very clean and friendly staff. Sites were easy to get in and out of. Park is in the middle of crop fields and tress. We would stay here again, if in the area. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Four rigs with reservations arrived to find the office closed. It doesn't matter what amenities a campground has if you can't talk to a host. This is not what we expect from a KOA campground. Access road is narrow and in need of resurfacing. Sites were long; utilities good; location was quiet. Route from the South is marginal to unacceptable for big rigs towing due to angle of turns. Should recommend using exit 94. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Hard to get to at night due to narrow roads, but worth the trip. This was by far the quietest campground we've ever been in. No trains, no Planes, no Freeway noise. Almost spooky quiet. Nice lady runs the place. We may go back just for the peace and quiet. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Although this campground is a few miles off the Interstate, the drive is extremely pretty and the large, full-service pull-through sites are neat. We used it as a base to explore the Springfield, IL area. Staff very friendly and during the off-season check-in when the office is closed is a "piece of cake". We'll stay here again when we revisit the area. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a decent park among cornfields and woods, but is technically in Rochester not Springfield. It is about half-an-hour to the Abe Lincoln attractions in Springfield and about 10 minutes to a very nice public park on Springfield Lake. The roads going to the RV park are narrow and in need of resurfacing. Roadways and sites in the park are gravel and in pretty good shape. Sites aren't perfectly level but we had no trouble leveling our trailer. Bathhouse is okay and clean, Cable TV is adequate, but Wi-Fi and my connection using a 4G phone were marginal. Previous reviewers criticism about a lack of enough signage is valid. There are several ways into this KOA and it seems that only one of them is marked. My GPS got us there, but via an unmarked back way. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Once we got off the main road (East Lake Drive). the other ones to the campground were not good and in need of paving. The Wi-Fi, which was free, wasn't very good and kept knocking me off. I was able to download e-mails but not much else. Very frustrating. Otherwise there was no problem for an overnight stay. There aren't many RV parks in the Springfield area. This was recommended over another one we considered. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

This is an older KOA and is difficult to find: more signage needed, in our opinion. It is definitely way out in the country! The upside: little to no road noise (and surprisingly not much train noise either). The downside: small roads on the way in. A few sites will accommodate longer rigs: check with the campground first. A few seasonals, but they weren't loaded with junk & stuff in their sites. Bathrooms were clean but smelled a little mildewy. Friendly staff. Good for an overnighter, a weekend, or a base camp for visiting Springfield & historic sites. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Very clean washrooms and lots of hot water. Site was level. Nice clearing for playground and play field. Staff was very helpful and went out of her way to suggest alternative route for our return. Road in was windy and narrow, and we wondered where we were, but in reality, it was only 7 miles... which has an upside...it was very peaceful. But get your groceries before going. There is a camp store with the essentials but a real grocery store is 10 miles away. Overall, I would stay here again. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Motorhome.

Quite a few turns to get here but you'll be rewarded with a very quiet campground! Sites are ok spacewise but the really big rigs should stay away because of the trees. (We had no problems with our 34' 5th wheel.) Trash pickup service every morning was nice. The hookups were in ok shape, while the picnic table should be replaced. Wi-Fi was good. We didn't use washrooms or shower. If you look for some quiet place and don't mind to drive a few miles to a shopping mall or museums, this KOA is for you. The posted rate is without KOA membership card. We camped at Springfield KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate is for WE on a shared site but since there was no one else on the site it functioned as a pull through. Sewer was available at the site but since we did not use it we were not charged. This campground charges for running AC, too, but we did not need AC. Level site. No boards needed. Wi-Fi .31 down, .32 up. Water connection did not leak. Nicely spaced sites with mature trees. Well off highway and deep in woods and fields. Dark and quiet. Real camp feel. Amazing display of fire lighting bugs in an adjacent field. Well graveled roads. Tricky to find from the highway but GPS took us right here. Those with reservations were called well ahead by camp admin to warn of public road flooding in area. Shower mats needed. Nice play area. Downgraded for insufficient signs to camp from Hwy 29, showers and lack of utility sink for dishes (sought by cabin users), We camped at Springfield KOA in a Tent Trailer.
