Oct 2018 - $25.00
Still barely OK for an overnight stop. Trees are overgrown, sewer connections are hard to locate, needs gravel and just looks bad. Honor system drop box for the fees at a small office/building at edge of grounds. Someone started to redo the sewer system and sewer hookups were in the middle of the drive/parking pathways. Working water Hookups hard to locate and several electrical boxes were without power. Most did not work. We would have gone further down the road, but we needed to get off the road for a rest. A rest area would have been better. - BennieH

Barely OK for an overnight stop. Used to be an OK place but has been let go. Trees are overgrown, sewer connections are hard to locate, needs gravel in the pot holes and just looks sad. Honor system drop box for the fees. Looks like someone started to redo the sewer system and the place needs a real going over. Hookups hard to locate. Some were in the middle of the drive/parking pathways. - BennieH

This was an old run down park with no one on duty just drop payment in the office door. It was raining the day we stopped here and the entire park was a swamp. Would not stop here again. - NevadaJim

Showed up July 3 without reservations; park was only about 1/4 full and we had our pick of spots for the night even though there were no spots available after that due to the July 4th weekend. Parked in a great spot near the lake. Fireflies put on a great light show! - ME for Maine

This was a nice, clean, quiet park. It had easy access to the lake. Trash cans with lids kept any animals away. There was plenty of shade. - rvingwithfam

Very nice and quiet park. Easy access to lake for fishing and boating. Band played on Saturday night. Very quiet through out the park. Rangers and Camp Host were present numerous times during the day. Trash cans with lids were located between each site and picked up each morning. - mr.beebo

Welcome respite after a long day on the road. Large spaces between sites. Gravel. Level. Lots of trees. We had a lakeside site, electric only. FHUs available. We can add another COE campground to our favorites. - MsLucy

This is definitely one of the nicest, cleanest, well groomed and well laid out COE we have camped at as of late. We are in a pull through that is huge, most pull through can get car, truck and boat in them. We have a 50 Amp, full hook up spot, here on a crowded weekend with no power issues at all.
The cg is likely out of the way for most travelers so it appears lots of locals, but if you want a couple of weeks of down time off the road, this may be a good choice for you.
The downside, if this bothers you... gravel site, the pull through do not have a fire pit per say, more like a fire grill that’s used as a fire pit. Effingham is likely the closest large town with Walmart, restaurants and big box stores, but it is 30 miles away. Local area has dollar general and limited fast food restaurants. - Buffy

A beautiful park with many camping sections with different services available. We did a walk-in on a Monday in October and were able to get the last remaining spot that was with a sewer connection. There were a few W/E sites still available at the time. Later that day, the campground was full, I'm not sure why since there didn't seem to be any special events in the area. Maybe everyone was migrating south like us. Our spot was not on the lake but a 4-minute walk and we were there. Although we didn't have a need, I did see a very nice boat launch area, fish cleaning station, and a really large dog run that included an obstacle course. We also didn't use the showers, laundry, or restrooms, but we peeked in and they all looked clean and well maintained. This is one of a couple of COEs on this lake. - NovarroNomads

Quite the unexpectedly nice park. The space between sites was great, with growies in between and felt isolated, but yet connected. Shower house facilities were very good and clean. Close to the interstate and with fair cell signal. Nice dump station and great campground host. Would stay here again. - garmp

Stayed at Fox Ridge State Park one night. We stayed at Fox Ridge on our last night after a two week camping adventure. There was only a couple of other campers in the park so it was very quiet. We explored the park and even hiked down to Embarras River. Beautiful park and the campsites are large and shaded. Must of had issues with campers and alcohol as there are signs prohibiting alcohol in most of the park including the campgrounds. Overall Fox Ridge provided a peaceful relaxing overnight stay. - M Warner

This park only has electric hookups. We inadvertently selected a handicap site, and it was concrete. - har-fl

Very nice and mostly empty state park. Shower house very tidy. Perhaps due to the time of year, no garbage cans or dumpsters within the campground, but dumpsters available near the dump station.
The "street" we stayed on was Fisherman's Circle. This overlooked the lake. It was a beautiful and peaceful view.
Nearby trail was well worn although not marked often with blaze markers.
We stayed at site 265 and were able to back our 27' TT into the site without much difficulty due to the opposing site being empty. Site 256 looks especially beautiful and tucked away.
The camp hosts were wonderful and very helpful. - Red Minnie

Fantastic park with great lake access. Park is typical Illinois State park. Few shower houses but mostly pit toilets. Water available but not on site. Dump at entrance. Hosts were very helpful and nice. Park huge with few campers. Sites mostly level, wide variety of site types. Very peaceful. Will absolutely go back next year. - Pluto's Family

This is a large state park on Lake Shelbyville. Since it was so late in the year they had closed parts of the camp ground. The area we were in was electric only with a mix of gravel and paved pads, as well as a mix of 30 and 50 amp sites All the roads are paved and in good shape. Most of the sites were well spaced and almost level with some areas fully shaded and other areas of little or no shade. The shower house was still open. While it is an older shower house it is well maintained and clean with lots of hot water. Lots of deer and birds in this park. - fimk
