A lovely surprise in Napa. Large, long concrete pull-through sites with double 50/30/20 connections, water, and sewer. Presumably they double up sites during the fair or other events. Grassy areas with picnic tables between sites. Excellent paved interior roads, and properly trimmed trees easily accommodate big rigs. There is a small social room with a few tables and chairs for small groups to meet. Wonderful camp hosts are both friendly and helpful. Park rules are well enforced and make for a pleasant experience for all. This park is not well suited for children. Park entrance gate is closed at midnight each night, though there is a way to get back in after hours. Good Sam is currently accepted for discounts. Bring the valid card in to register as they require a copy of it.
Easy access from Interstate 25. Good paved and gravel interior roads. Mind the speed bumps on the entry road, they're quite steep. Long gravel pull-through sites with full hookups, some with concrete patios and picnic tables. Free fast wireless internet throughout the park. Family owned and operated, with a friendly and competent staff. Tourist information is available at the registration desk. Rail Runner commuter rail station nearby with service between Albuquerque and Santa Fe downtown. Delightful views as the entire park is on a bluff, overlooking the area. One of our favorite parks for consistent service and clean facilities.
Arrowhead park is convenient to Interstate 80, a short drive from the exit, with easy on and off access. The camping area is part of a larger municipal park, with many recreational facilities. Poor interior signage. Campgrounds are located at the rear-most part of the park. Long back-in sites are largely not level, and some slope to the rear of the site, making leveling for motorhomes challenging. Some sites on our visit were muddy, with poor aprons and large ruts. Water hydrants are scattered throughout the camping area, so it is not necessary to fill your water tank at the sanitary station. Most electrical pedestals serve multiple sites, and ours had insect nests inside it. Overall, a fair overnight stop, and could be so much more with some much needed maintenance.

Lovely State Park Campground. The camping area consists of five loops, and site spacing varies within these areas. The Hickory Hills loop is for tenting only. Some of the RV sites are quite spacious, while some are close together, allowing small groups a measure of intimacy. There are a limited number of accessible sites that feature concrete pads and patios with paved paths to the nearby restroom facilities. All of the Accessible sites we saw featured 20/30/50 amp electric. A few Standard (non-accessible) 50 Amp sites are available. When booking through Reserve America, you can view the individual site size, parking area and features, including the electric services, and distance to the nearest water hydrant. As with most of Illinois State Park Campgrounds, Alcohol is strictly forbidden.
A wonderful, well kept campground. Astroturf rather than grass provides a small challenge with pets as they must not relieve themselves on it. Gravel pet areas are provided and kept clean. Check-in process was fast and efficient, rules were explained, and an escort to our site was provided. Sewer hookups are at the rear of the site, and require 10 - 20 feet of hose to reach for most RV's. Water hookups are attached to the electrical pedestal and are rather low and close to the ground, requiring adapters to fit both a regulator and hose connection.
