Wanted a campground for our 40ft fiver while touring historical sites in nearby Springfield, IL. While realizing that it was still "off season", there was no reason for the unfriendly attitude at the reception/check in area. Large room but very few camp store items available. Signs abound for driving your rig through the roads, lots of switchbacks so make sure you read the signs - would be hard to figure out how to get where you are going if you got turned around! Pull-thru site was adequate - long enough but narrow, flat, gravel with very ruff (unmanicured) grass between sites - with almost no other rigs on the grounds, I was surprised that they put is right next to another large rig (actually was the camp host). The host kept driving around on the golf cart, stopping to tell us how to back in, how to put down our jacks, not to move the picnic table. When set up, we wanted a campfire and used some wood that we had brought with us. Knowing the usual rules were to NOT bring in wood, my husband went back to the campstore to buy some and the (unfriendly) person there said not to worry, we could burn our own. Obviously, that was wrong since the gestapo on the golf cart came back and insisted that she would have never said that. He was wrong. We avoided him for the rest of the weekend.
Laundry area was clean, there was a swimming pool but was a bit too cool to use (it wasn't clean) and there was a derelict mini-golf course that needed help. We tried to play using our own clubs and balls (again, lady in store said it was ok) but could only do a few holes that weren't damaged. Close to some Route 66 locations and a beautiful covered bridge in a nearby park. Also close to Springfield (about 20 minutes to downtown) but on a busy freeway access road. Noise wasn't a problem for us but could be for others. Lots of shaded sites that looked more promising that ours. Won't be back but you may find it OK.
