“Beautiful county preserve”

Overall Rating

This place is awesome. It does get a little buggy in the nighttime. Plenty of shade and room on each site. Pads are gravel and very flat. Check in is at the host camper. Easy to drive through and not very busy during the week. Very quiet and serene.

“Score of a Find!”

Reviewed May 26, 2015

Overall Rating

A gorgeous and well maintained campground around a little swimming lake just north of Champaign. Huge private feeling and wooded sites surrounded by wildflowers, and over 7 miles of hiking trails.

We were so surprised this campground wasn't more visible, it wasn't even listed on Campendium yet. They have electric and non-electric sites, and rates vary by weekend, holiday or weekday (our $14/night was for a weekday electric site). Open only seasonal, so check their website before arriving.

They have two dump stations on the way out. Only ding we had for it was the only water fill up station was a spigot located on the one-lane main entrance into the campground. Anyone stopped there to fill up would block traffic, making it a bit awkward. So recommend coming in with fresh tanks already filled.

Cellular signals for Verizon and AT&T were both a bit on the weak side, but completely usable when boosted.

What a delightful stay!
