We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Uncrowded this time of year and we had a beautiful view of the lake. Our site was pretty unlevel but manageable. The woman at the gate was chatting with some guy when we got there so we had to wait. And wait. And wait. I would advise you to just interrupt her. We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Travel Trailer.

Back in the woods or on the lake, there are plenty of sites to enjoy both. It was very pretty.

The sites near the lake are not level front to back and can be very extreme. Some campers were using up to 5 or 6 legos under each wheel. The slots are also pretty skinny but there were no trees to hinder you from backing in. Most sites in the woods were level.

The only real con was there are a lot of super stinky dumpsters. They are back right at the campsites, so if you get a campsite within 2 or 3 either way of the dumpster prepare for some super stink. We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Travel Trailer.

A skunk ran us off from our fire ring at night. Not the camps fault, just an interesting fact.

We were going to stay overnight at the closest Walmart but when I saw there was a COE Campground nearby for $8.00 a night, I couldn't pass it up. What a find. We got in about 8 p.m., when the host was closing up the office. She waved us over and told us a couple of sites to look at since we didn't want to unhook for the night. She said we could pay the ranger later. We looked at two pull-throughs but found a back-in long enough that we didn't have to unhook, with a million dollar view. Great park. Well groomed. Pleasant personnel. This is a great stopover park because it's right off the interstate or would make a great camping destination for a week or so. Our Wi-Fi hotspots worked well. Our rooftop TV antenna pulled in what we need. No water faucets at each site but they were spread throughout the park. Will definitely stay again if in area.

I would rate this higher if it had water available at the sites. The water is from a central location on the loops. You have to drive over to it to fill your tank. Many sites are Very uneven, we had to find one level enough to use still using several boards to level the rig. The park is very clean, popular. Many boats around. This is a COE park. They have several campgrounds within the park and Gun Creek is just one of them. This is a grassy and wooded park, very pretty. We rode our bikes to the craft shop which had nice quality arts. We would stay again. We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very nice Corps of Engineer campground. It is easy off and easy on from I-57. Nightly rate reflects Senior Pass discount. We stayed one night on the way to Marengo, IL. Most sites are electric only with water hydrants scattered throughout the camping loops. They do have some full hookups as follows: Eagle Loop sites 60 thru 63. Bluejay Loop sites 11,13, & 15 as well as 18 thru 41. Many sites require serious leveling (front to back and side to side). Others are very nice with little or no leveling required. Restroom and shower facilities are new, clean and well maintained. The grass could have been mowed but it was okay. We would definitely stay here again either overnight or longer.

Very nice and just off the Interstate beside a golf course. By a nice lake. Very much a 10 out of 10 park. Very dark and quiet at night! We camped at Gun Creek Campground - COE in a Travel Trailer.
