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 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

We have been going to this park for the last 4 years to meet with a group we spend the winter with in McAllen, Tx. So everyone goes various places for the summer but we meet each year the week after the 4th of July at Kentuckiana and spend a full week. Plus on Saturday night the park has a Kentuckiana country show and it is great. This is a great park. Park is always mowed and looks nice. Sewer and water work fine, power works great. Management is very friendly and helpful. Sites are level and easy to get in and out. You are guided to the sites and helped to park. - Seemore

This is our 3rd time to stay at this park. We were meeting with a group of people that stat at Sun Light RV park in McAllen, tx in the winter. A lot of the people are from this area, so they have a get together each year in July. Great park and we had a great time. - Seemore

This is a nice campground. Pros: The grounds are well kept, there are two stocked ponds for fishing, hosts are friendly, bathrooms were very clean. There are many activities scheduled, such as bingo, fish feeding, and a country Opry show. This campground has two playground areas. One is average and the other one is fantastic! The entrance to the playground is a giant slide called 'Big Red.' The playground at the bottom of the slide is very nice. The campground was generally quiet during the day, and just about silent during quiet hours (10 p.m. - 8 a.m.) Cons: The area of the campground we were in had very, very, very small sites. There are really no attractions nearby. It was fine for a weekend, but any longer of a stay and we would have been bored. All in all, we were very pleased and plan on returning. - rollinrollinrollin

This is a Casino that allows you to park overnight and they have a few spaces for rigs and trucks. We asked to stay there because the other campgrounds has been flooded out and were too muddy to enter. Worked for us in a pinch and we did ask permission. - imperial

The park was awesome, very clean. The only problem was the drunk person two sites down from us who decided to yell and listen to a radio til 4:45 am. Everyone else was asleep, except for us who were up all night. - mike 2017

This was just an overnight stay, but it was fairly quiet. The roads are a little narrow because there are all back-ins and people park their tow vehicles on both sides of the road, but we managed with our 40' fifth wheel and truck. The sites are paved with gravel patios and there are quite a few trees, so we had some shade. 50 amp service, sewer and great water pressure. The water does have an odor to it though, so we didn't drink any of it. No cable or wifi, but Verizon worked and there were enough OTA tv channels. The laundry only had 2 washers and 2 dryers, all $1.50 each. Someone else mentioned this, but it is mostly people who stay there all summer because it isn't also at a marina. They were friendly enough and fairly quiet. we would stay there again if we were passing through. Somewhere I read that they had pull-through sites, but that is WRONG....all back-ins according to the manager of the park. - Ginny H

Convenient to Peoria, easy to find and access, this park is largely long term or seasonal residents who have boats in the marina. Check in was quick and we were led to our site. Interior roads and sites are paved, and although a bit tight due to large trees and fairly close sites, our 40' motor home was easy to park. No WiFi but good Verizon cell/data, no cable but a fair number of OTA channels. Satellite TV may or may not be usable due to the many trees. Far enough from the highway and river to be quiet, but close to shopping, dining, and a casino. A good value in an area without many options. - Meanderman
