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

This is a beautiful State Park where we camped under huge shade trees and had a nice, big site with electricity and access to a nearby water hydrant. The camp host was very helpful and friendly and the park was only about 30% full when we stayed there. It made a perfect home base for visiting the nearby Lincoln's New Salem Village, home to President Lincoln as a young man when he operated a general store there. - MissouriBird

Wonderful park, quiet, shady and spacious. Nice sized sites, not perfectly level, but close enough to work. Friendly hosts. Clean restrooms/showers, a bit dated, but they worked well. Electric only, 30 or 50 amp, the posts only had one or the other, not both. Did see several Handicapped sites. Potable water is in the center of the sites, might need extra hose length. We will be back again. - Rae & Mark

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. - Gannonrv

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. - Inigomontoya

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 park has a lot of potential, but it needs better care. We stayed here for two days to explore the nearby Lincoln sites. The men's bathrooms were filthy. We felt sorry for the tent campers. They had to use them. We did not get a sewer connection, so we had to use the showers. The showers were clean, but the ventilation had much to be desired. People living in the park should also clean up their sites. Some had trash bags outside for two days. The camp hosts were friendly and helpful, and the park is convenient to shopping, restaurants and sightseeing. The roads could also use some TLC. - On road less traveled

Grass, very unlevel, couldn't even get slides out on fronts. - Never Lost
May 2015 - $25.00
The man who checked us in was very friendly. The campground was grassy and treed with gravel parking spots that were not very level. The sites were close together and most of the other RVs were very old and in bad shape. The campground was bordered with a run-down mobile home park which was not separated by a fence. A train track runs close to the park and a train can be heard several times per day. The roads were full of potholes. But it was an okay park for the price considering we had sewer at our site in addition to water and electricity. - mountainfan
