We had to come back to the area for a job, and Tom and Carol's Park is still the most convenient (there's just not much near Forsyth, IL). We parked our rig in the fairgrounds lot and just used electric for the month. The night before leaving the area we came back to the RV and found that the park had no water , but they ran several hoses to allow us to fill our tanks from a neighbor. Tom is super nice, and he looked after our rig while we were on the jobsite. can't beat the value. - DaBlairs

The actual park is only six sites, but they manage the fairgrounds sites as well. The couple who owns the park-very friendly and nice. We were actually working at a job site in another town, but couldn't find an RV park closer, so we opted to leave the rig there and stay in a hotel. Tom said he would make sure nothing happened to the rig, even blocked off a section near the fairground gate so no one would come close to our RV. He checked on it several times a day, and let us know all was well while we were away. So $10 a night for electric (we didn't even hook up water) was perfect for keeping the frig plugged in. At the actual park, there is a small (free) laundry room/rec room and an above ground pool, friendly folks. It was well off the interstate so it's not a quick overnight spot, but it was quiet, and safe. (note - they do go-cart races on Friday night at the fairgrounds, so don't expect quiet that night!) - DaBlairs

When we called to check on availability for a Friday evening overnight stay, we were immediately offered a site in the local fairgrounds since all sites at the campground were full. Not only were we provided a site with water and elec. but the owner also offered to meet us in town and guide us to the fairgrounds and helped us get hooked up. Great service by a friendly owner. We had the entire fairgrounds to ourselves. Plenty of grass for our dog to enjoy. Quiet. Peaceful. Safe, small town site. Good access to water and elec. Just a few miles from the Interstate. All for only $10. What more could one ask for in an overnight stop? - MissouriBird

This park has a beautiful caricature about it, with its big Oak and Hickory trees and how they go together about 30 or 40 feet in the air. This park has the grounds mowed every week. There is a set of swings and playground equipment in the adjoining picnic area and the hiking trails are mowed as well so you don't have to climb through waist high grass. Restrooms are clean and tho there are only 2 showers the showers have plenty of water and pressure so you don't have to hit the button every 15 seconds. The host is well versed in the surrounding area knowledge. They have no fishing or boating but they have tons of peace & quiet unless its harvest time in which you might hear a combine in the distance. Perfect place to relax. The interstate (I72) is over 2 and a half miles away. 36 campsites w/ 8 no power and 27 w/30 amp only. All sites are back in. Nearest convenient store is in Argenta at Caseys for ice and pop and gas. - illplainsman

This is a great little sleepy campground. Perfect if you have to work in Decatur or surrounding area while camping as its very close. There isn't much to do at this campground other than just enjoy having nothing to do but that's OK sometimes. The one thing I didn't like is the caretakers dig out the fire rings and that leaves a hole to collect water and starting a fire in a puddle of water is a bit difficult. Someone should really tell them to stop that, yes it looks nice but is very impractical for using it for what it was designed for. Other than that great park. - firemaninil

We stayed 2 nights. It was a nice manicured area. It is out in the country away from traffic and next to a corn field, a serene setting. It is VERY quiet. The lots are not organized as they are scattered with no certain pattern. The hosts were very kind and helpful. There is no laundromat on site so we drove about 15 minutes to town. - Kelsidy

This park is for RVs only. Has 118 spots of which 113 are water/electric only. 35 pull-thru sites. 2 ponds. I don't fish and did not ask if you could. Open April 1st - October. 30 amp pull site is $25. 50 amp pull through is $27. Did not have sewer at their pull thrus but there is a dump station. Situated on lovely green grass with nice trees. Well groomed park. Quite a few seasonal but they are situated toward the back. Owner seems friendly. They will provide you a fire ring and picnic table if needed. Will definitely be Back. We stayed 2 nights. - Rhodie

I know I have given this park a low review but please read on to find out more. We love this campground. We go camping nearly 3 weekends out of every month with friends just not always here even though its closer to us than other campgrounds. The biggest reason I rated this campground low is based on value. We have a 30' tt and there are a bunch of the sites we can not use because we can't get into them or they are extremely un-level. It is an adorable little campground but for more than a month now the hot water has been broken at the shower house. This is an issue considering that there are NO full service hookups in this park. Hosts are friendly if not punctual upon entry, everyone that camps here are friendly, and we feel comfortable with our younger kids running around here given the size of the place. I do not like paying $20 per night given that the amenities are lacking here. It seems a bit high for what your getting. The park is aging and I understand that but it is a state park so the upkeep is built into my taxes already and I really expect it to be done since I have paid for it. The sites are spacious but there is not good separation borders from one to another, they do have fire rings most of them are concrete but they are crumbling. The electric service on some of the sites is finicky, the breakers are aging and like to trip if there is the slightest hint of moisture in the air. This is why we only go here if there is a chance someone has to run back into town during the weekend for some activity or something. Other wise we go elsewhere. If they had water and sewer service on some of the sites I would rate much higher as the shower house wouldn't matter near as much. - firemaninil

This is a beautiful park. Some of the sites have great views of the lake. Lots of trees, and the sites are pretty spacious. Most were fairly level. Great trail that goes all the way around the lake. Don't miss the Veteran's Memorial area they have there--it is really nice. This is a nice, quiet campground and I would come back again. - mnlkosinski

We stopped here as an overnight stay on our way home from Florida at the end of March. The only utility available at this time was electricity. The showers and bathrooms were not opened and we really didn't find drinkable water. We used some cloudy water to rinse out our toilet. We stayed in a pull-through site, #6, I think, and it was level. Some of the other sites were seriously off level. The roads were paved and were relatively easy to navigate. But it helped that there were few other campers in the park. I saw two handicapped sites that were paved in concrete. The campground host was friendly. He recommended Ted's Garage on highway 54 on the west side of Clinton for food and I had a good Friday night fish fry. - BikerRon

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

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
