This was a very nice campground for an overnight stay. It was easy on/off I80. Pleasant staff at check in. Long pull through, would like it a little more level, but not too bad. We camped in a 42' MH. High water pressure. Be sure to use pressure reducer. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Older park that has most sites in the trees but has a new section of pull throughs for big rigs that are satellite friendly. It was a great one nighter and looked like it could be a good family place also. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Truck Camper.

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. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Starved Rock Park nearby.

This was a very nice, family oriented campground. Lots of grass for those who were in tents. The utilities worked well and the site was level. Our site was way in the back and was extremely quiet. We would stay here again. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is close to I-39 and I-80 with many pull through gravel sites. There were a lot of kids when we stayed overnight but campground was quiet at night. Sites are close together with mowed grass in between and room for a picnic table. Little to no shade for most of the pull throughs. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Easy on/off Interstate. Be prepared to share shallow swimming pool with lots of fun-loving kids.

WiFi worked fairly well with few issues. Staff very friendly. park well maintained. Laundry facilities more than adequate even though one dryer was not working well while we were there. Excellent location for easy off/on to I80. Have stayed there many times over multiple years and recommend them for one or more days understanding that PA discount is only good for two nights and Good Sam or full rate must be paid starting with third night. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Very close to Starved Rock, Buffalo, and one other state park. Also close to canal system locks and small information area (sort of like a museum)

Price is little high, but with Passport America very good. Excellent for a couple days stay passing through. Very clean and neat. Level, Long Pull-throughs. Right off Interstate which is nice, but adds noise if you have windows open. WiFi is best we have seen in awhile. worked in the rain and late afternoon. Sites are pretty close together and hook-ups for RV next to you are pretty close to your awing or door, but no smell or anything. Pool clean and nice. People very nice. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Starving Rock State Park was really nice.

We stopped for a one night stay and it was perfect for us. I called prior to arriving and the person I dealt with was professional and answered all my questions. It was easy access from I-80. Checking in for not only easy but pleasant because of the employees. I didn't want to unhook the toad, wanted 50 amp full h/u and a site that I could get satellite. I got it all at a great price. I could not get over the air TV, so no local weather but overall this park is a keeper. You won't be disappointed. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here one night for an overnight, as we preferred a full hookup (they also have water/electric only sites). Our site was very close to I-80 so there was noise from the interstate but it really didn't bother us. Sites were level, and some were more spacious than others. This is a nice size campground (around 80 sites). They have areas that are more family friendly near a playground. Other sections were close to the front and office and better suited for adults (just my opinion). There is a pool. Shower house was nice and clean with good pressure and hot water. Tent camping available but was in a heavily wooded area (buggy and damp!). Cabins available. Dog-friendly. Small store. Their rules and regulations are very extensive! Nothing outside of the norm (quiet times, pick up after your dog, visitor rules and charges, etc). Maybe they had problems in the past and felt it necessary to make such a detailed list? Free Wi-Fi worked fine. Our site was a pull-through and was large enough so we didn't have to unhook our tow dolly and car. However it was relatively narrow so there was mostly grass at the door to our RV. We would normally put out a rug to keep grass and dirt inside to a minimum. But one of the rules were "No rugs on grass." (?) Some sites had concrete pads. Ours was gravel. Very clean and well kept park. We would like to visit Starved Rock in the future and even with some quirks we will still consider this campground again. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed here in 43 ft RV, towing. Nice pull-through spots for short term stays located in one area. Can use Passport America. Some great longer stay spots in back. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a clean well-maintained park. We always stay here on our trips up north and returning. Never really had a bad experience. You get a little bit of highway noise but It was a constant sound and didn't really bother us. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

The bathrooms and laundry are very, very clean and the service was friendly. However, the sites need to be mowed and most need more gravel. Additionally, the 'yard' area is not level. Because of the location, OTA reception is very poor; the campground needs to invest in cable.

This park is good for an overnight stop, but I wouldn't suggest it for longer stays. The road noise is not too bad; however, it is very evident. We camped at Hickory Hollow Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Loves truck stop is very convenient for fueling before starting a day's travel.
