Paved entry with gravel roads and sites. They are beginning to lay concrete pads at a few sites and we had one. Lots of trees in some areas, but G-loop is open for satellite access. Good water pressure and useable wifi. Convenient for I-80 traffic, but surprisingly quiet. A good over-nighter. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Some of the interior roads are paved, some are white gravel. Interior roads are narrow in parts, but doable. Some of the sites are paved, some are white grave and grass. We stayed one night. It was a nice park. I would stay 2 or 3 days to see the area. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

One night stop turns out to be a good pick. Clean grounds, even got a full length concrete (back in) pad to park. Good power and water. Some long term rentals but all very neat and clean. A couple of small cabins are also available. If you're going on 39 and need to stop this place will be fine. Nice folks at the desk also. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Long level gravel site surrounded by grass. Our site was in the open sun, some others appear to have shade. Good utilities, excellent Wi-Fi, and a few over the air TV stations. Decent laundry room. Friendly staff in office gave us great advice on finding walk-in medical care. Small creek for the dog to wade in on her walk. Close to interstate but no noticeable noise. Great place for one or two nights and a great value at the Passport America rate. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Pretty easy access off of I-80. Just north of the freeway, but traffic noise is not an issue. Train tracks also nearby, but haven't heard one yet and the Lady at the office says you rarely hear them. There are a lot of TENT sites here with water and elec. We had to take a back-in with them as the camp was all but booked when we got here Sat. about noon. They all have fire rings, so for some, the smoke could be an issue, but it really was not a problem for us. Park is well done with the shade trees, and we were able to still pull a good satellite signal. Some over-the-air channels as well. No cable, but they do have OK Wi-fi. Our site was level, both side to side, and front to back. Roomy enough, with gravel, and nice grass. Paved road through-out. They have a pool, and store by the Office, although we did not use either. Good overnite stop on our way thru the state. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Wow.. a nice find on our journey from TN to WI. Quiet, nice pull thru, electric never flickered, we watched a movie on the internet, peaceful and beautiful. The owners were awesome, so friendly and accommodating. We may see you on our way back home... Don't miss this stop! Highly recommended! We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

I called for same day reservations. Stayed two nights at the Passport America rate. Office staff were wonderfully professional. Asked for shady site and got a nice, long, level gravel pull thru under mature trees. 50 amp full hookup utilities on our site were all conveniently placed. Some sites have concrete pads. The few longterm residents kept their sites tidy. Overall the park is neat and clean - grass is trimmed, tree branches are trimmed high for big rigs, sites look clean, no trash outside of dumpsters. Internal roads are gravel and big rig friendly. Wifi was good enough for email and news. Water pressure was a little weak tho. Nice pool and playground. No off leash dog park but plenty of space to walk the dogs. Right by the interstate but we didn't hear it inside the motorhome and had a couple of good nights sleep. Good bargain especially if you have PA. So glad we found it since we'll be traveling this route a couple times a year. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

We had a very nice level concrete pad pull-through right near the entrance, office, bathrooms, and pool. It is my impression that this is where they put most transient campers who just need a night. The entire park is well groomed and everything is spotlessly clean in a nice setting that offers both sunny and shady sites. There is no cable and the OTA stations consisted of 3 Christian preachers, 2 Hispanic stations, and one old old movie station. The WiFi was unusable with the park full, which is my main complaint. I tried making online reservation 4 different times using two different devices...to no avail until early in the morning before most others were awake.

The staff was friendly and efficient, and the park would be a favorite if it had better WiFi & a few cable stations. Still a good spot to spend the night. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

This was a very accommodating park. We were a little nervous initially pulling in due to the proximity to the interstate, but we never heard any highway noise. This resulted in a great positive: easy interstate access; without the common negative associated. The grounds are well kept and easy to navigate. The ladies working the office were quite friendly, and were very helpful when the two families that were supposed to join us had to cancel their stay.

I really don't have anything negative to say about this RV park. The price was very reasonable for a full hook-up site. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Utica, IL, has some nice looking shops and a museum. Starved Rock State Park is a couple of miles down the road, as well as Buffalo Rock State Park. A little bit further down the road is an indoor amusement park, but we didn't catch the name of it.

Very nice park, clean and well run, roomy sites. Was assigned a pull-through; all good hookups. Staff very friendly. Close to highway but noise was not bad. There is a sand pit or quarry next door so not sure how noisy that would be as we got here late in the day. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

A good bargain with Passport America. They ask that you pay in cash when using this discount. Well laid out park, clean with beautiful wooded areas. Our site was close to the office next to the pool but was quiet. Site was long enough for rig and tow. Utility infrastructure was well maintained. Didn't hear the freeway noise. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

This park is a green oasis just off the highway, with a playground for the kids and a swimming pool. Beautifully maintained and the trees and shrubbery effectively mask any traffic noise. Check in was a breeze. Sites were level and Wi-Fi was adequate. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

The owners were friendly and check in was a breeze. The road in and out was easy to navigate. The campground is just off of I-80 so it is a popular place for overnight stays. There is road noise, it is much louder in the front of the park. We stayed in the back and it wasn't too bad. Large camp, well kept up and they also have cabins to rent. Site was just long enough for our 37-foot RV and tow dolly and parking the car.

They are gravel sites with grass and above average width with a picnic table and fire pit. Full hook ups and 50amp. Water pressure was okay. WiFi was good. Verizon service was good. Did not use either the bathrooms or laundry. They have a playground and a small pool with a handicap chair lift. There is a large open area for dog walking and trails through the trees. One thing they didn't warn us about when we checked in, was that the quarry next door does blasting every now and then. So when you hear sirens be prepared for your RV to rock with the blast.

We stayed here the last week of July 2016 and paid $30.60 a night with a combination of Good Sam and Passport America discounts. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Your option is the use the PA rate for one night or a Good Sam or other discount for all the nights. Works out about the same if you're staying 3-4 nights. We had one of the pull-throughs in the back area. The site was fine and satellite reception was easy; the biggest nuisance is that you have to turn yourself around to get out and the space they provide isn't big enough for a 40 foot MH to do a loop. Since there were lots of empty sites we pulled into one and then backed out but this could be an issue if the place was full. Other than that, the sites are gravel, the roads are asphalt and the utilities were fine and were in convenient locations. Easy access off of I-80 at exit 81. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.
