This campground is one of the best we have been to so far. While it is a drive for our family, it is well worth it. The staff is very nice and helpful, as well as accommodating. Their prices are very reasonable and have full hook-ups for the longer stays. The environment was very peaceful and kid friendly. And the beach was very nice, clean, and easily accessible. It is only a few miles away from many stores if you need to pick up something, but yet you do not feel you are staying in a place that is that close to a big city.

They also have ice at a reasonable price so you do not have to go to town for this and a lot of grassy areas around campsites for kids to play, unlike a lot of campgrounds that are too close to each other or are nothing but dirt. Plenty of places to fish that were easily accessible as well. We will definitely be returning for many more family vacations there.

The only drawbacks I saw were that they did not have a playground when we were there last and this would have been a plus for our kids. The other would only be a suggestion - a place to do laundry onsite would be nice. We stayed 10 days and with a family of 6, we went through a lot of laundry and had trouble finding a nice, clean laundry mat in Carbondale that was not in a bad part of town. We did finally find a nice place in the next town to the East a few miles away, but seemed to take a lot of time to leave to do this. A few washers/dryers and a playground would have given it 5 stars!!!

This campground area is a beautiful piece of southern Illinois. Set in the middle of Shawnee forest, they offer a wide variety of spaces- electric and non. They have areas for campers and tents or both. The prices are very reasonable and the staff very friendly! Love to camp here!

These campgrounds are a great place to go if you aren't into being pampered. They do have plumbing and showers, set on Crab Orchard lake there is also plenty of fishing and boating opportunites. You will run into many types of animal life from snakes to deer, but it comes with the territory. The campgrounds are right in between two cities - Carbondale and Marion- so you have easy and fast access to "civilization". A wonderful place to camp with either tent or camper and very reasonably priced offering daily, weekly and monthly rates. They offer a beach also and are open seasonally.
