Water/Elec pull thru site 57 got satellite reception (dish on top front of Motorhome). Otherwise, a shady spot right across from the creek. I did ask for a satellite friendly site. Very clean restrooms/showers, looks to be recently upgraded - nice showerhead. - HereTodayGoneToMaui

Owners/staff very accommodating. Large, spread out park, nice little creek runs through for fishing or ambiance. Large dog run, kid friendly. Nice pool. Lots of tents and cabins. Utilities were well positioned. No wi-fi at sites, only available in office. Not satellite friendly, just about entire park under trees. Cable available but with small selection of stations. About 2 miles from interstate in middle of cornfields. We were there on a Friday overnight, and park was completely filled with locals camping for weekend. - Too Tide

Quiet area - plenty of shade, out in countryside, small herd of cattle across the road made for a serene setting, able to see sunrise, wish we could have stayed longer, definitely will return if in the area again. - Travelers3

Nice park, long, level sites for our big rig....plenty of room for car, too. Good signage and convenient to I80.
No cable, good satellite reception but spotty OTA reception.
Charged $3/ person for our friends to come and visit for 2 hours, but since the Passport America rate was only $19 (cash), I didn't protest. - MBRADLEY

Clean, quiet campground, sites are either gravel or concrete and big rig friendly. Easy on and off from I-80. Staff was friendly, even accepted a delivery for us when we were away from our rig. There is a pool, game room and small store. The laundry room is small yet clean and adequate. There is highway noise, but nothing you don't hear at most RV parks along a highway. Plenty of grassy areas to walk dogs. Unfortunately, there is no TV reception, and only certain sites get satellite. We couldn't get satellite, but their WiFi is good and strong. We watched TV from the internet. They do have a long list of rules, but nothing that isn't common sense in order not to bother other campers. We stayed a week, and will stay here again while in the area. - KKColorado

We stayed here for an overnight stop. It is close to I-80 and easy to get to, GPS did not have the right directions but we followed the signs coming off expressway. We were here on a Wednesday night and had a nice back in site with shade. There were a lot of pull through sites in the back area for larger rigs. They used a cart to guide to your site. Nice pool but there were quite a few kids having fun. We would stop here again. - MINomad

Price does not reflect $5 reservation fee. I only gave Service a low rating because there wasn't any, not because it was bad.
Our loop was mostly an open field with little shade, and the grass needed mowing. The campground has little in the way of amenities and is segregated from the rest of the park. You need to drive about 3 miles to get to the visitor center, lodge or trails where all the activities are. Empty and quiet during the week, but full on weekends. Several pumps provide fresh water, but the single dump station can get backed up (pun intended) when everyone leaves on Sunday.
A couple of TV channels and OK Verizon and AT&T service. The campground was OK, but since it doesn't have water or sewer hookups, and you have to drive to the state park anyway, I doubt I'll stay again. - TheRollingJones

One of our favorite Illinois State Parks. Friendly staff, clean and well maintained campgrounds, and plenty of hiking and exploring. - Mike Pula
Sep 2014 - $25.00
This park is suffering from a lack of cash. The grounds are not mowed more than once a month. The water pump was broken requiring you to fill tank at host site. Dump station filthy with feces and toilet paper all over and back wash hose broken requiring you to use fresh water pump. Very unsanitary. No ranger at gate shack ever. No security noticed during our 5 days there. Beautiful park but campground almost unusable. - wendie T
