Since our last stay here 3 years ago, this campground has gone downhill. There are only 12 sites for transients, the rest are permanently occupied. The campground was littered with trash, including lots of broken glass. The dumpster had no cover and was overflowing. The office was manned by two teenagers that were more interested in each other than in helping me. I had to ask for directions to our campsite. The toilets are porta-potties. There are no showers. Many of the sites are not level and ours was barely long enough for a 35' motor home. We had to park our dinghy on an adjacent empty site. - Hawk37

Lots of "permanent" campers. Not many level sites. Waterfront sites all rented on long term basis. - Hawk37

We loved the campground with its beautiful old shade trees, birds, and the sounds of frogs lulling us to sleep at night. Truly loved it. Even though there were quite a few people there, everyone was quiet. The only problem was with the campground policies/facilities, not sure what to call it. 1. Excessive night-time lighting. FOUR stadium-sized light poles with stadium-level bright lights around one picnic area that of course never gets used at night. These lights bothered us all the way over in the campground. In addition to that, many of these tall, excessively bright lights were placed throughout the campground. So be careful where you set up and look for the light poles if you do not want to have to wear a sun visor at night. I'm not kidding; it is that bad at the sites where the poles are. In areas not lit up - the fireflies glittered in the trees - beautiful. 2. Excessive mowing. Up into hills, through large areas in between rows, between all the campsites, all the way to the edges of everything. I would truly hate to be here during mowing week (or mowing month?) It would take a long time to mow all these areas, and anyone camping there would be bothered by the duration. This c/g was closed in May 2016 due to budget constraints. Perhaps if the lights were turned down and mowing cut by half, it would not cost so much to run this campground. Other than these two very odd things, this beautiful place is a real treasure. - 82_

We stayed on a weeknight in early May. Sites were a bit close, but that was not an issue since there were only 4 other campers on the grounds. Very clean and well maintained. We had a spot overlooking the lake. Restrooms and showers were very clean. - John31

We camped at tent only site 28. The view of the lake is awesome! We had electric at our site. The tent pad was clean, the picnic table was in good repair and the fire/ grill pit was clean. I didn't have high expectations of the showers or the restrooms, but they were clean and maintained. My boys loved exploring the beachy area below our site, it is not for swimming. The staff was nice. My only complaint is the directions on the actual campground website/ confirmation e-mail were wrong. There are signs to guide you, but GPS devices and the written directions may lead you astray! We just went to the beach. We were only there 3 nights and it was more just to unplug and relax. - KB-FD

We went to this campground with the expectation of having free wifi and cable, since it is listed in their amenities. Upon arriving the camp host informed us that they did not have either. We were very disappointed. We went across the lake and stayed at another COE campground. - Gary Stanton

This campground is really nice. Some sites with Electricity, but private ones mostly do not have it. Restrooms could use some work and cleaning. Nice water access with some steep hills. Overall pretty good!!! - JanaBeaty

After a day of driving, the last half through rain, the hosts at the gate of a campground need to be focused on the guest, not Illinois electoral politics. Excuse me for planning a trip to a location in Illinois that they don't like because of politics. Geeze. Anyhow, Lithia Springs is a combination of level and sloping sites, and is showing some age with regard to infrastructure. It's hard to believe that this CG is a COE area, given the bizarre slopes on some of the campsites. So easy to fix with a bobcat and level. One of the least desirable COEs we have ever stayed at. Pesticide people came by and sprayed herbicides all over every empty sites. Could be smelled at occupied sites for hours. Lots of deer ticks. Bathrooms grimy, concrete floors mildewed. Hookups and power supply was fine. Yes, the end of the road cul-de-sacs were indeed tight. Large rigs and fivers should not attempt. Dark and quiet at night. People in campground pretty friendly. But the hosts? Just hope they haven't been watching a "news" channel all day at the gate or you'll be grumped at for vacationing against their opinions. We looked around the area. Not a lot to do. Honestly, boring. We would never camp here again. - The Happy Traveler

More restrooms than trash cans! Be sure to bring leveling material as campsites are not very level. Nicely spaced sites with beautiful trees, some on the water. Easy ride to Shelbyville for supplies. Not all campsites have water on site. The changing of the leaves was very beautiful. - Sugar Pie 1

Campground was well kept. Site was really large to hold my 32 foot trailer and two cars. Everybody that worked there was really help full. Restrooms and showers were really clean. Will be going back again - camperboy82

The only drawback the grass area around our site, as well as the entire park was a foot high. - PATCZAR

We love this campground! We camp nearly 3 weekends out of the month most of the time and this place has nearly everything or it's nearby. We usually camp with friends so we enjoy some of the buddy sites. The only complaint we have about this is that there is only one buddy site with full service in the entire park and some of the buddy sites are not set up very well and in need of rethinking for the layout. There are many of them that the campers are door to back of your buddies camper and others that one of the two sites are set up backwards from all camper set ups. Meaning your door will be on the wrong side of the site so you can't use a camper attached awning and you have to walk around your camper to get to the table and fire ring unless you have a small camper and get creative. Other than that there is a site for everyone and every style here. Group, secluded, sunny, tree covered, water front, in the hills, and group style areas. Like I said this is a great place and even has boat launch if you have that kind of money lol. - firemaninil

Coon Creek Campground in Shelbyville Illinois is a Corps of Engineers park. The campground is very clean, with several large pull through lots, a few of which are full hookups. We very much enjoyed our stay with our camping club in this park. The only thing that we would have liked better is if the grass would have been cut. If you use the America the Beautiful Pass, the rates are $12 per night for a full hook up and $9 per night for electric only. The fishing on Lake Shelbyville was great. We would recommend this park to others. - Krissy r

Robin Hood Woods Camp Resort Entry about a mile on rough, dusty gravel road. About 3/4 of sites are seasonal. Transient sites are unimproved, just natural grass but leveling was easy. Electric was low, around 117 volts. Water was high (65 psi) requiring pressure reducer. Electric service post was rotted out and leaning. Not a great impression. On the good side is: wide sites, good/free Wi-Fi, the very nice pool and catch-and-release fishing on the property. No access to the Shelbyville Reservoir however. Stay at one of the nearby COE camps for that. - BbTrombone

City is actually Jeisey, not Kincaid. Lots of space and large lots designed as a place for mobiles, their RV rentals are mostly long term. Nice lady owns the park. Free washer and dryer but no WiFi or cable TV. There are spaces with phone hook-ups. Near Springfield and Taylorville for doing genealogy stuff. - PDDeen

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
