I stayed here on the weekend before Memorial Day and there were only about 12-15 other campers here. I was a nice campground--lots of grass and trees. The electric-only sites were reasonably spaced apart, but somewhat unlevel. There was a fire pit/grill at every site. Very quiet and the camp hosts were very nice. They had some maps and firewood for sale. Good dump station. I didn't need water so didn't use any of the sources available. The bathrooms/showers were very clean and the hot shower was good. The hiking trails were nice but none are near the water. The park road going to the campground was pretty rough. Overall it was a good experience.

Lake Le Aqua -Na State Recreational Area

This is a pretty state park area especially in the fall. Summer could be busy as it is near the Lake. I was there in September and another time in October so really not that many campers. In 2012, the summer was a hot one in Illinois, and many lakes including this one had green algae so no swimming. This may be one of the reasons it wasn't quite so busy. I probably like some of the end sites best.

Hiking trails from campground were nice and hike at Apple River Canyon! Kayaked the Pecotonia River (Farwell Bridge to Sumner Park). At Sumner Park there is a dam, but several of my crazy friends went down it without injury. Since Q-dog would probably follow me over it, I just put out before the dam.
