One night stay. The park is a gravel lot with full hookups, not much else. There is a laundromat, liquor store and a car/dog wash across the street, in addition to the hardware store. We used the green area behind the businesses to run our dog. Pretty quiet yet easy to access the interstate. Would only use as a stop over. We camped at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park in a Motorhome.

The hardware store where you register has a lot of interesting things. We bought two very large foot print stepping stones to bring back for our garden

About 15 pull thru sites in a gravel lot lined up on a road with a 20+ steel Dragon that breathes fire when you insert token. Laundry and pet wash (and liquor store) all across the street. Easy access to highway. Check in at hardware store...people were nice. Full hook ups and only a few other campers. Good overnight stop because not much else there. We camped at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Wal-Mart and DQ fairly close drive. YMCA walking track within 2 blocks from site offered some exercise and fresh air.

Everything in the previous review is correct. Wanted to add a few more details. The sites (except #8) are basically back-ins but you can pull-thru to your site by driving down to the end of the row and pulling thru an empty site. That way you will drive along the back side of the RV sites & then be able to pull-thru to your site. Electric was excellent with 50/30/20 amp connections. Nice hardware store (owners of the RV Park) across the street. Be sure to ask at the hardware store for some tokens to "feed the dragon" to get him to breathe fire! Very quiet & peaceful at night. No restrooms available. We camped at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Site#8 is NOT a pull-thru site. All other sites are pull-thru/back-in sites. I did find that online reservations are now available via the Reserve America website. There was a $5 fee to make an online reservation. Nice laundry mat & car wash with pet wash directly across the street, too.

This is a fairly new park, right off of I-70, with easy access, off and on. There are only 12 sites, so it is small. There no amenities, and you have to register at the hardware store across the street from the park. When we checked in, we were told to go pick an empty site. The sites are basically back-ins, but if there is space available, you can pull thru one site to park into another site, which is what we did. We like how spacious the sites where, with plenty of room to park another vehicle, in front, behind, or beside your RV. The connections are clearly marked, and we had no problem getting connected. There is no cable TV and antenna TV was lacking, but the satellite TV worked just fine. There is no Wi-Fi, but our hotspots worked well. If you stay here, make sure watch the dragon, as he spouts fire out of his snout. Across the street, from the park, you will find a liquor store, a laundromat, car/dog wash, and the hardware store. We camped at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park in a Motorhome.

Make sure to feed the dragon and watch it breathe fire. The owner also told me that the cab company in town will charge you $5, to take you anywhere in town.

Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park is a new park right along highway 70 and has only 12 spaces; all have full hookups with 50 amp service. Since we were just passing through and only needed a place to sleep comfortably for the night, I was searching for a good, freeway-close inexpensive park. We almost didn't stay at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park because there were no reviews and I wasn't sure about the dragon part! But I called and felt comfortable with what I heard and with the person I spoke with so we decided to give them a try. And we're glad we did! The spaces are along a side road; they are all in a row and nicely graveled. Each space is back-in, has plenty of room and are long enough for a larger RV; ours is 34 feet. You go over to the hardware store to check in and pay. When you do, they give you tokens to put in the dragon so you can watch him breathe fire at the little knight in not-so-shiny armor. It's quite entertaining! Right across the street from the park is a liquor store, very clean laundromat, a dog wash facility, and a little car wash. We did our laundry. While the dragon might imply this is a great place for kids, it isn't really a kid's park. Although there is a nice big grassy area around the dragon. We had a very comfortable stay and would definitely stay here again if passing through. We camped at Kaskaskia Dragon RV Park in a Motorhome.
