We planned on staying one week on the way back home but ended up staying 2 because of continued snow up north. Nice,large,pull thru parking on gravel. Sites are staggered so it doesn't feel like u r on top of the next rv. Satellite bathroom is typical cement floor for shower. Bathroom in front is newly redone & tiled. Fairly large area but the showerheads aren't very adjustable so the changing & dressing area gets soaked if you're not careful. Satellite bath also has a pushbutton to turn the water on so u need to push several times during the shower to keep it going. Neither bathroom has heat so you'll want to be quick anyway. The park is super neat & clean, has nice tall trees but don't hinder driving anywhere thru park. Staff is super nice. There's a pool but was closed. Too cold! Only 2 washers & 2 dryers & was so busy the one day I tried to use it I went into town to do it. Would stay here again on our way back & forth. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The park at Rend lake is nice. I walked part of the bike trail. Laundromat in town is reasonable. Uses quarters &the dryers start out for only a quarter and you can add additional quarters from that starting point. Washers are 1.75. Ate breakfast a couple of times at cozy table on hwy 37 going into Benton which is also where the Wal-Mart is.

Stayed here April 19, 2016. Very nice wooded site, no junk around, quiet except for train noise which though not close woke my husband up a few times. I thought it was fine and ok. Sites were gravel and some were a little close , that is why I rated it an 8. It has a pool( not open this time of year) and a dog run . It is like camping in the woods and the owners are nice. We will stay here again, my husband agrees. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Cool lake nearby, winery!

This park is just ideal for overnight or a long stay. Spacious and open gravel site with a fire ring and picnic table. Everything you need plus a very large fence dog park. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Very nice shady park. Great fenced dog park. Big "overnight" pull through site. Easy to get to. Pleasant staff. A little shocked that they did not take credit cards. Not sure about the flock of chickens wondering the park. Maybe eating bugs! Very pleasant. Super clean restrooms. We would stay again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Staff very friendly and escorted us to our site. Sites were packed gravel and level. Plenty of room for big rigs. The campground is very nice and clean. They had activities and snacks for the guests and an organized trick or treating for the kids. Little bit of road noise from highway 37 but not bad. Located close to the Rend Lake bike paths, Walmart and anything else you need. We would stay here again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Take your bike to the Wayne Fitzgerald State Park or the Rend Lake bike paths. They are awesome!

The WiFi is at a hot spot, there is no WiFi at your site. The sites were level with packed gravel. The hook ups are centrally located so there is a need for additional hoses. The sites are very close to each other. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice park close to I-57, but quiet. Lots of trees, but roads and sites wide enough that no problem for a big rig. We had site 2 where we could get satellite for DTV. WIFI is good. Staff gave us fresh eggs from park chickens that roam around...very cute. We were also given tomatoes from the the garden...wonderful.

The park is well maintained and we would definitely stay here again. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Upon arrival, the front office staff was very friendly and helpful. Was escorted to the site.

We had a pull through site that was clean and well kept.

Lots of shade which was good in the hot weather, but it also kept us from being able to use the satellite. Still appreciate the shade.

Sites are close but manageable.

Did not use the restrooms, but they were clean and well kept. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Nicely treed campground with very friendly owner and staff. Gave us 4 eggs from their chickens upon arrival. Husband said for me to take shower in camper as you had to push a button in shower and it was measured. Then you had to push it again to resume.

Easy access off I-57. Escort to your site and assistance with parking. Gravel sites, very level and well drained. Showers and bathrooms were clean and well maintained. The pool area was clean and the water was clear and refreshing. Only stayed for an overnight, but would return to explore the area. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

GPS has you turn into the campground too soon. Continue south on SR37 until you come to the campground entrance sign on a gravel entrance way.

This is a lovely park. Good gravel roads and level sites. Reservations were a breeze, and by the time we arrived the next day, they had everything filled out, including our Good Sam discount. They took it upon themselves to look us up in Good Sam! The staff even asked where we were heading and provided alternate directions through St. Louis to bypass traffic. Sites are comfy and there are a lot of trees in the park. Sites are level. If ever in this area again we would stay here for sure! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Great place to stay. Easy in and out and lots of room for parking. Lots of trees but that was not a problem for parking. Good elect and water. Nice bathrooms at the office, the other one was closed because of winter. Office staff very helpful. Will stay here again if in the area. Nothing bad to say about this place.

This is a beautiful campground. Both the reservation and registration process were easy. We were led to our site. The roads and sites are hard packed gravel. There were lots of trees, but there was still plenty of room to maneuver. It is nicely landscaped, with lots of grass, and it is well maintained. WiFi worked fine. A previous reviewer said it was easy to reach from I-70, but I think they meant either I-64 which is 15 mi away or I-57 which is less than a mile away. I-70 is 85 mi away. The place actually sits on Highway 37, but there is no road noise. It is very quiet and peaceful. I highly recommend this park! We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Motorhome.

Was there in September and hardly anyone there. Beautiful mature tress everywhere. Close to Benton which is a town of about 8,000 (I think) which has a decent selection of restaurants for a small town. Really a well maintained park with the grounds maintained (southern IL open spaces can get overgrown in a hurry). Excellent Verizon 4G since tower right across the road. We camped at Whittington Woods Campground in a Travel Trailer.
