“Beautiful but Limited”

Reviewed Oct 12, 2017

Overall Rating

We loved the beauty and landscape of the park, with large open spaces and plenty of accessible lake area. The camping area “A” was well maintained with an on-site host who worked hard to keep things in great order. Plenty of hiking/walking areas, each campsite came with a picnic table and fire ring, many with large grassy areas adjacent and large trimmed trees on the site. I only saw back-in sites in both the A and B campgrounds. Our area had electric but no water or sewer. We were told by the host that NO Illinois state parks have water at the campsites, just a general hookup for water located about 200 feet from our site. Come in with filled tanks or carry an extremely large hose!

Fishing is allowed on the lake in designated areas. No lake swimming, at least not near the campgrounds. I believe there may be limited non-motorized boating but call the park office to verify. No inflatables, toys or otherwise, in the lake. No drone usage. Within 30 minutes of Springfield, IL. Would stay again but only for the night.

“campfires and capitol visit...”

Reviewed May 22, 2017

Overall Rating

Great campground close to Springfield for day trips in to the capitol and nighttime campfires.

The top half of the Hickory Point loop is water front. Deer run is heavily wooded and shaded.

Very modern and clean. All our neighbors were super fun to talk to.
There is still a bunch of this park we were not able to explore.

We had a great time for the annual Girl scout march, see ya next year!
