This is self pay. Nobody is onsite. We only saw tents. There are NO level spots for RV's. We did not stay. It felt like a campground in the side of a mountain. - Yellow Submarine

This is a plain vanilla Forest Service campground in the Garden of the Gods Recreation Area inside the Shawnee National Forest in Southern Illinois. Water is available at pump, restrooms are pit toilets (relatively new concrete structures, very clean) no dump station available. Campsites are on a high ridge with good views of the surrounding area from the edge. Loose structure to the campsites allowed easy maneuvering to set up for nice views from our trailer. We were the only ones in the park. Good hiking trails. - VACHZHD

We loved it! We were the only ones there. It's pretty much a campground on someone's farm land. There were cows in the distance and you could tell that other campers must bring their horses. There was covered horse poop. My 1.5 year old fell in the grass into horse poop twice. I consider it a great experience for her. We felt very safe even though we were alone. We blasted music and enjoyed the creek right next to our camper. The owner helped us to find a spot. He was very nice. We had a level site. It was very spacious. It was literally a farmland type setup. - Yellow Submarine

This campground has a nice, unique, rustic feel and is very different from the regular RV campgrounds we have visited. We enjoyed seeing all of the horses walking around. The owners were nice and friendly. The road/driveway that goes back into the campground is pretty rough for a travel trailer (ours is a 30' that is only two months old). We camped at a spot at the top of the hill that had a wonderful view and a very large campsite lot. It is one of the best campsite lots we have ever had. The road up to the top of the hill was extremely rough and had lots of ruts. At first, we weren't sure whether or not we would even be able to make it all the way up the hill, but eventually we did. A four-wheel drive vehicle is definitely a must in this campground. Water pressure was okay at some times, but there were a few times when the pressure was so low, that we had absolutely no water at all for thirty minutes or so at a time. This was very inconvenient when trying to cook or take a shower. This campground has a lot of potential and could do really well, if money was invested to smooth out the rough roads and correct the water pressure problem. Even with the two problems we experienced (the roads and water pressure), we still want to return to this campground because of how unique it was. - Penny C

We are here for the 2nd consecutive month - $360.00 includes electricity. This is a very nice city park with 30 full hookup sites - most are back in with easy access. The park is open all year with no reservations. All sites have 30A and 50A power. All sites have a cement pad on which to park. - Fulltime Roberts

Traveling from So. Calif, we have stayed at the park several times. Full Hook-ups, 50 amp. Level Concrete pads, most sites are shaded, some open to the south for satellite. Free internet, be sure to get voucher number from park attendant also free fire wood. Several picnicking sites which are covered with tables. The trees are kept trimmed as to keep from hitting larger RVs. We stayed here in a Class "A" 40 motor-home. NO PROBLEMS. - Roy Fleming

This campground has many positive features and a few negative ones. It is situated on a wooded hill. Most sites are good size and shady. All are full hookup and have concrete parking pads. The park is in the country so it is generally quiet. The hookups work well except that the water has an off taste even with a water filter (we ended up buying drinking water). At $16 per night it is a bargain. The bathrooms are quite old but everything seems to work well and the showers are good size. Because of the age it is hard to tell how clean the bathrooms are, but they are reasonably okay and certainly not overly used since everyone has full hookups. New this year is WiFi which works okay if you are close enough to the antennas (located at the bathhouse) but not so great if you are not. TV reception (Evansville) was okay as was AT&T cell phone reception. They generally do not take reservations. When we were there on an early May weekend they were about 2/3 full. It seems like most campers were from relatively local areas. Getting to the campground is somewhat a challenge especially if it is your first time here. All roads are narrow and pretty rough. We came through Carmi. There are other routes but one is just as difficult as another. Note that when the road inside the park branches, take the right hand branch next to the pond to get to the campground - the left branch goes to the picnic area. We would stay here again when we want to be in this area. - RXA-ADM
