We stayed here in early March as my husband was in town hunting snow geese. We absolutely loved this city park! It was our first time camping in a city park and there was so much to do and see, especially for our kids. The campground is located right next to the Illinois River and has wonderful views of the river itself. The park is a quick walk away, with two playgrounds, picnic areas, a walking trail and an amazing view of the town's bridge. There are 12 sites here, with electrical and water hook ups. Since we were here in the off-season, we did not have water hook ups or restroom facilities as both were closed off for the season, so if you plan to come during the off-season make sure you come equipped with water and restroom facilities. A quick drive over the town's bridge takes you to the heart of the Illinois wildlife country. The Emiquon National Wildlife Refuge is about a 10 minute drive from the campground and is worth a visit. It's unreal! The amount of waterfowl we saw was incredible and we were fortunate to see 10 eagles over the course of the weekend. We will definitely be staying in this campground when we return to the area. This little town knows how to utilize it's riverfront and the outskirts of town are just beautiful. Although she wasn't staying on site yet, the host of the campground came by and introduced herself and provided a lot of helpful information. We will be back! - Erika Rene

As its name implies, the park is adjacent to the Illinois river. The sites are all back-in and pads are about 40 ft in length with some additional room at the back. Bathroom is at the nature center just across the entry road. Pads are gravel with grass in between. There is a water connection for each site but most are at the back of the sites and shared between two sites so require a long hose. Dump station is along the road along the park. Passes to the nearby swimming pool are available during the season.
The park is well kept and the nature center and nearby boat launch ramp are well used by the town residents. It is a typical riverfront park, only 5-10 feet above river level so it has nice views of the river. That also makes it subject to seasonal flooding so be sure to call ahead for conditions, especially in the spring.
It is just a short walk to the downtown area where there is a hardware store, Dollar store and a few restaurants, Grandpa's was quite good. Nice walking trails in the park and a longer trail out to a river island if the water is not too high. The Emiquon Nature Preserve is just across the river as is Dixon Mounds Museum. - oldmac

Reserved a full hook up, pull through and prepaid. Bottom line was very poor logistics and site management (booked 4 people into 2 sites). A mix of friendly and also some very rude seasonal campers. Bathrooms were so bad I had to rinse clothing and shower to get rid of the smell. Were really hoping for a much better experience - will not stay here again. - The Simpsons

We were here for a Telephone Pioneer Camping Rally with 18 other campers. Very nice campground. Closes town about 10 miles away. Would stay here again if in the area. - skiphen

Nice level, shaded sites. Friendly owners, quiet park. Plenty of room for the traveler not staying the season. Seasonals are located on outside of park. Very family friendly. AT&T/Sprint/Verizon cell service ok. Lots of off the air channels. Would be good if you had a dish to set up. Can get campfire smoky on weekends. Price reflects cash with Passport America. Great weekly rate. Tons of birds, near Illinois fish hatchery, conservation areas for birding. - DocColorado

We stopped by here about 5 years ago. Nothing has changed. The park looks nice enough but nothing has been done as far as maintenance goes. There are electrical issues & site pads have eroded away to almost non existence. A few truck loads of gravel & a skilled bobcat operator would do much to restore this CG. - Veebyes

The sites may have had a gravel pad at one time but now everything is covered with grass. We were in the A loop. 30 amp electrical service was adequate with the campgrounds almost empty (118v) but doubt that it would be sufficient with a half full campground. There was no water or sewer at the site. There were several pit toilets but only one restroom with flush toilets and a shower at the far end of the camping area. It was not in very good shape and needed a major cleaning. We were here on a Thursday and only about five spaces were occupied. There was no map of the campground available at check in. Needed to find the facilities by wandering around. Over the air TV is available. We had no problem at out site connecting with Direct TV but some sites would be problematic. Verizon was one bar 4g. The interior roads are paved but signing is lacking. - BobWW

Nice state park with plenty of space between sites. Ours dropped off at the rear a bit so we deployed our leveling jacks on that end only. Side-to-side was level. Power pedestal was 30 Amp and did not like running A/C and electric water heater at same time. Fire ring/BBQ was a bit close to the RV (if you park a lot closed to the road, this won't be a problem) - 4forsmores

This campground under new ownership and already seeing progress. Have spent the last three summers here as summer quarters as we are Fulltime RV'ers. Lots of shade, very quiet and just 3 miles to Bushnell which has several fast food and family owned restaurants and also a Dollar Store and grocery. Strongly recommend to anyone needing a no-frills campground. There is a pond for swimming altho not ideal, kids love it and a playground. - openrange
Jul 2009 - $18.00
The rate is Passport America for a back in site with 50 amp and air conditioning surcharges. Sites are fairly wide, some with concrete pads. Roads appear to be asphalt and gravel. There is a swimming beach on one of the lakes and lots of open grassy area. Verizon signal was strong. We had intermittent low water pressure. Campground is just outside of Bushnell but fairly remote. Very quiet atmosphere when we were there. Laundry area appeared run down. We would stay again if in the area. - BigRigTravelerUSA

We stayed here in the very depth of winter during a three day snowstorm. This campground is about 15 minutes from Galesburg, IL. We were glad to find this place at this time of year with full hookups! The park manager was very kind and accommodating - even when the water froze and he had to come out and dig it up. The pipe froze underground and he had to dig it up, bit it was fixed in less than half an hour. The road was plowed each day. We were the only campers out here, and the bathroom facilities were closed for the winter so can't speak to that. Not much to do here in the winter, but we enjoyed the quiet and the hills were great for kids sledding. The interior roads seem tight but we easily maneuvered our 35 ft motorhome. The place looks like it's been there awhile. There are some pieces of heavy equipment there by the Office and it won't pass as a resort spot, but nothing really objectionable. There were several large 5th wheels there - looked like folks came and went throughout the year (in good repair). Do not use your GPS directions to find this place - call and get directions! It's easy to find and just a few miles from I-74 but the roads have been changed and renamed in the area and the GPS directions are way off. We would go back. - Joann26
