We had a great group camping experience at this site. There was plenty of space for our group's 9 tents, and the fire pit area worked out well for a cooking and eating space. Russ was very friendly and responsive and arranged an extended time for the kids in our group to hang out with the chickens in their coop and collect eggs. The site was closer to the road than we had expected, and there was a large shipping container in the backdrop. There was another group nearby, but we each had our own space and they did not disturb our fun. We had a very nice time!

Russ was extremely helpful and accommodating. He welcomed us and brought us the firewood and eggs we had added on to our order. He let us know he didn't have other campers coming in on Sun and allowed us to leave our camper while we ran to a local festival we were in town for. He truly made us feel welcome. Sites were as expected. It's rustic, but had an electrical hook up for our camper and a very clean and well lit porta-potty.

This was a great stay. Russ was a great guy and great host! Made sure all our needs were met, he even picked us up when our car broke down. The spot is nice and shaded. Fire wood was provided. The town of Marseilles and Illini State Park we’re really close. Parked here with our travel trailer, 2 kids and dog.

Russell was so kind and welcoming without being intrusive or impinging. He set up firewood for us, was super flexible with our ever-changing arrival time (toddler life), and was quick to answer when we needed further directions to the site. The site itself was exactly what we needed—a spacious, well-set up, clean and wooded area to sleep and enjoy a campfire on our way across the country. Power for the camper was also a HUGE plus. Thank you Russ! Highly recommended site and host.
