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

Right off I-57 and easy to access but there is no sign at the entrance except "vacancy". No one in the office. Hodge-podge of sites that were once orderly. Difficult to see what water spigots went with which sites though water and electric were excellent. Sewer hookups in the center of each site. Advertised free cable TV in Trailer Life but it was not available. Showers and washrooms not available for use. No lighting after dark. There was a sign on the office door giving the rate of "$30 for one night, $25 for two or more nights. Put money in slot." What a joke! No amenities, no host: for $30 a night! We planned on staying two nights but left the following morning, never having seen another soul. - loneranger

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

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

Can't beat the price we paid with the senior pass. Our site had full hook up and no problem getting satellite signal. Lots of grass for the dogs & lots of place to walk them. Staff is friendly. The sites are level. There are showers & a laundry. Didn't look at them so don't know how good they are & they were not in our section. The section we were in was not as crowded as the section where the showers were. We had a big rain storm the first night we were there. Our site flooded & stayed that way for the next 30 hours until we left. The other sites seemed okay so I guess we were a low spot. The park is quite a bit off the beaten path. We did get there even though GPS said there was no route to it. Mosquito like bugs in the grass were annoying but the flood seemed to have drowned them for the time being. - Connie's Co-Owner

This is a pretty big campground with several loops. Some are just electric, some have water, and some have sewer. Make sure you get what you want. Our GPS went a little whacky while at this campground because it seems they've rearranged the roads since Garmin updated the maps in their GPSs. Not a big deal though, the GPS got us to the campground alright. Some sites that are considered "waterfront" aren't really. They're on top of a hill that MIGHT have a view of the water through all the trees. Our site - 67 - did not have a water view. - Wandering With Us

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

Nice State Park. Just stayed one night while traveling my sales territory. Spacious, level and clean sites. Self check-in after 4:00 PM. Only negative was little to no cell phone service! - 09fz6r

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
