Could only stay 1 night because park was full (preferred 2 days) Price based on electric and water only because we couldn't get a full hookup. Near hwy but quiet were we stayed near entrance. Would stay again when in area. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice park with a friendly and helpful staff. Site 20 was 65' long and level. We were only there one night and did not disconnect. It's a FHU with easy reach to utilities. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice, smaller park, located about a mile off of the freeway. The main road into the park is paved, and the others are gravel. The sites have a gravel pad and are very large. The people running the park are very nice and helpful. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a quiet, beautiful campground. A perfect place for a restful getaway. There is a small charming lake and sites have some personal space - people aren't right on top of each other. Gentleman who greeted us was warm and friendly. Probably not much for children to do although there is some playground equipment. But for a quiet and peaceful stay, it was perfect! We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is nice, well kept and owner very friendly. We were escorted to our site which was gravel, level and had view of the lake which was nice. We even walked around the lake. Wifi and satellite were good. Park is close to the interstate. We only stayed one night as we were travelling to the Dakotas. We had made reservations well in advance when planning our trip. We would definitely stay here again if in the area. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Check in was easy. Site was level and easy to find. Lake was beautiful backdrop. Good WiFi speed. Facilities were a bit dated and in need of repair. Rotted wood and rusted appliances in bathroom. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a gem of a campground. It is family owned and has been for three generations. The pride taken in the campground is very apparent. It is small, no frills, but it has all that you need at a fair price. It is neat, clean, well taken care of with no trash lying around. It offers easy and quick access from Route 57 so it is an excellent place to stop for a night or two or longer. The road into the campground is paved and in excellent condition. The roads in the campground are gravel, no potholes, easy to navigate with no overhanging trees. Customer service is fantastic. After registration you are escorted to your site. If you plan on stopping here be sure and make reservations. There is a constant flow of rigs in and out each and every day. Usually by early evening the campground is full. If you can get a pull through site facing the lake it is well worth it. The view in the morning out our front windshield never got old. Just beautiful. Our site was hard packed gravel, level, adequate room for rig and car. All utilities were convenient to the wet bay. It was partially shaded. Site separation was adequate and I had ample room for my patio awning and other window awnings. All pets were observed on a leash. There is a small, very clean laundry with one washer and dryer, and each was reasonably priced. Verizon cell and MiFi were excellent. Our DISH antenna easily locked onto the western arc. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Walmart is just a few minutes away. The town of Champaign is also just several minutes away. Our two favorites, Aldi for groceries and Culvers for ice cream were right there. Other than that if you can't find it in Champaign then you probably don't need it!

We have stayed at this park quite a few times on our way down south and then back up north. Always a great stay with friendly staff, a beautiful lake and easy on and off the Interstate. Was quite full of campers but very quiet and peaceful at night. Highly recommend! We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

We had a wonderful overnight at this beautiful and accommodating campground. The owners and staff were very helpful and available. I was able to get two loads of laundry done. We went kayaking and even did a little fishing (catch & release). The large pond was not only peaceful but a wonderful place to walk our dogs and ride our bikes around. The spots were level and clean and everyone there was very friendly! DVDs are in the front office to check out. This place is a hidden gem and we are looking forward to planning a vacation to make this a must stop for more than an overnight! We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a wonderful little park. We were in the row by the lake and the breeze off the water was refreshing. You can't swim in the lake. There is no beach but they do rent kayaks. You can drive all the way around the lake and there are picnic tables, fire-rings, Adirondack chairs and a swing on a deck by the water. There is a small office with a few things. The sites are spacious, lots of grass and trees. Pretty level, also. I wish we'd have been facing the water, next time, I will request it. One washer and one dryer in the laundry room. Soft water! The laundry room and baths are a tired and could use a face lift but the knotty pine is pretty. No codes for the baths. The staff are super, super friendly and the service is excellent. The freeway noise was minimal and didn't bother us at all. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Red Lobster in town has good seafood but they advertise walleye, which is why we went there and they didn't have any walleye. Call ahead to verify.

We have stayed here before in a pull thru site facing the lake. This time we were in a back in spot but they guided us in between the trees on the grass making it a pull thru. They explained the ground was dry so it wouldn't make ruts & since we were only staying over night we wouldn't have to unhook, easy in, easy out. We made this reservation the morning of our arrival & this water & electric spot was the last one in the park. Our RV needed repairs & we had to cut our vacation short & return to Florida for repairs. We appreciated them accommodating us & making things easier for us. Our site was satellite friendly, as was the site by the lake that we had before. There is no cable but several over the air stations are available. Garbage pick up at the site. There is a laundry. Lots of near by restaurants & shopping. We will stay here again. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Loud, too close to highway and falsely advertised. It shows a lake, but fails to show the warehouse behind it with the weird rubber smells coming from it. Did not appreciate diesel vehicles, as they are "too loud" Will not return. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nice setting for a RV Park - nice small lake but our site was not adjacent to it. Close to I-57 but noise not too bad. Site is quite large and some shade in the AM. Water pressure only 40 psi and water did not taste good (Iron pipes?). Electric good. Wifi signal strong and response OK early in the day or late at night. AT&T signal good.

A little gem of a park not far off the intersection of I74 and I57. Super friendly and helpful hosts. We had a pull thru facing the lake. The park is clean and well maintained. Pull thrus are a little tight getting in for a big wheel, but host helped line us up. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is a nice stop over or for longer stays if needed. This is our second time to stay here although the first time was a couple of years ago. We requested a nice pull-through with no trees and we were accommodated. Very nice owner/manager. The electric (good at 121 and 117 on each leg), water and sewer are adequate although the electric and water are towards the rear just past our 45 ft. motorhome bumper. We do have a long electric cord and hose so no problem. We camped at D & W Lake Camping and RV Park in a Motorhome.
