This was a nice little park for an overnight on our way back to Wisconsin. A very nice man named Paul answered the phone when I called for a same day spot. It is self check-in, so payment is by cash or check. It was well lighted. They do have restrooms and a washer and dryer in the registration building. TMobile signal was great, and we got several antenna channels. We paid $40 for a pull through with 50 amp full hookups, which was a little high for the amenities. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Fifth Wheel.

I suspect that the ownership of this campground has changed. They no longer honor Good Sams, even though they have the sign posted in the window. The owner/host should let someone else run the campground. The campground is as others have described it, small and tight. The owner/host is not friendly. In fact belligerent is a word that comes to mind, when and if he is even there. I will not stay here again. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Travel Trailer.

This is a small campground in the middle of corn country. We needed a spot with full hookups for one nite and this met our needs. Right on the side of the road but traffic was minimal. Good Verizon service. Good TV reception over the antenna. Owner very friendly. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Travel Trailer.

Good place for an overnight stop. Sites are close together and we were in an afternoon shaded back-in spot. Were able to stay hooked up to tow vehicle. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

Rate reflects a 15% Good Sam discount. This is a very small RV park nestled in the corn fields. It is located on a side road with little traffic, so noise is not a real problem, even though you are parked close to the road. There are only a few sites that can take a big rig. We had one of the back-in sites in the dead-end part of the park, and could only maneuver in as the sites across from us were empty, otherwise, there was not enough swing room to back in. The owner is very friendly and helpful. AT&T and Verizon signals were good. The water is nice and soft and has good pressure. Over the air TV reception pulls in the networks out of Springfield and that is about it. The only reason we would probably not stay here again is that it was difficult to take the dog for long walks, as the only place to walk was along the roadway, otherwise it was a nice place to stay. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Fifth Wheel.

Great location surrounded by corn fields. I-94 is 2 miles away, and so is the train. We didn't hear either unless we strained to listen. Great site, great host, we really enjoyed the peace and quiet - and posted a picture on Facebook! Do not stop here if you want to be entertained, swim or occupy children - we liked it that way, but others might not. We will stay here again next year. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Motorhome.

Small campground surrounded by corn fields. Not far from freeway, but no noise. Sites are close together. Water, power, and cell (AT&T) were good. Some shade trees, but got satellite TV. Good short term place to stay. We would camp here again. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Motorhome.

This is a small campground off the beaten path, but close to Route 66 and many historical stops. There are cornfields all around the camp, and it is very quiet, except for the occasional vehicle passing. There is one washer and one dryer, in excellent condition. One shower each for men and women. There is abundant history in the area, as well as Lincoln College. The owners are very friendly and accommodating. They have brochures for all the attractions. We were only going to stay 3 days, but decided to stay a week with so much to see. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Fifth Wheel.

I totally agree with the previous reviewer. We had site 8 which is a pull-through with FHU. Wonderful property and people. If you have a roof-top satellite I don't think there is a space where it will work. Two sites 9 & 10 might, but they do not have sewer. Nice place for an overnight. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Passport American plus $5 for 50 amp. Very small but well kept park amid the corn and bean fields. Not far from freeway and quiet. Owner is extremely friendly & provided info about the area. There was room to walk the dog and a small play area for kids if you are looking for something like this. This is the only park in the area, so I'm glad it was there. However, I wouldn't pay full price if it was $40 a night for just an overnight, as it was only a parking space and didn't include sewer. If it hadn't been PPA, I'd be at Walmart. But I would stay here again at this price. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Motorhome.

Very clean and friendly park in the corn fields. The laundry is one washer and dryer and washer not working. Internet worked better than most parks. Shopping is near by and a few restaurants. We stayed here on Passport America. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Motorhome.

Small, but extremely clean and well cared for. We stayed 3 days even though Passport America only gave 2. After that you pay regular price $30 less 10%. Seemed fair. Very quiet and owner makes you feel very much at home here. He told us all the best places to visit and even a really good restaurant in town. We would definitely return.

Nice RV park. The only drawbacks are the sites are crowded and the park wide WiFi has a week signal. We camped at McMillen's Camp-A-While in a Motorhome.

We arrived after dark. It does have 50 amp service and the water and sewer were ok. However this is a small makeshift RV park carved out of a corn field. They only accept cash, no credit cards accepted. When we called to see if they had room, they said that they were closing the next day but when we arrived, we were told they were open all year.
