Vintage Spring Lake Campground

· Savanna, Carroll, Illinois
10 acres hosted by Danika P.
3 RV/tent sites
Spring Lake Campground was est. in 1943. The lake is fed by the Mississippi River and there is access to the lake and directly to the river for kayaking/boating and fishing, which is a popular reason people come to the campground. Another popular draw is that the Great River Bike Trail runs right through! It’s a beautiful ride from the campground to nearby Savanna, IL. There is so much to do in the surrounding area: hiking and climbing at Palisades State Park, restaurants, bars and shopping in Savanna, museums and more. But enjoying a peaceful time at the campground, having a bonfire, watching the sunset on the lake and seeing the stars at night is really what it’s about. True old school camping-enjoying the wildlife sanctuary. Get outside and relax. *We ask that our campers please arrive before dark to find their site and set up to avoid disrupting other campers. It gets really dark! We do not have street lights so people can see the stars. Learn more about this land: A Vintage campground est. 1943. Known for kayaking and fishing, this is a true campground. Instead of pavement, we have grass and trees but our best "amenity" is the peaceful outdoors! The Great River Bike Trail runs right through our campground. Rent a canoe or kayak (through October 1st) Historical Savanna, IL is close by. Enjoy Illinois!

Due to the weather, I was unable to make this trip. However, Danika was an incredible host and was very helpful and communicative. I look forward to staying here sometime soon!

Great space, great view.
Really enjoyed the space. Great view of Spring Lake. Easy kayak launch. Danika contacted me early the morning before and alerted me to the fact that the Mississippi River (to which Spring Lake is attached) was slowly on the rise and that there was a remote possibility that I may have to relocate. Fortunately, this didn't occur. Shortly after I arrived, Danika's husband arrived and asked if everything was OK and if I needed anything. I ordered $10 worth of firewood which was delivered promptly and far more than you would get at a gas station or a Dollar type store. Bring bug spray as the gnats were unhappy I was invading their space. A hiking/biking trail runs through the property into Savanna, IL which was easy. This is the third time I've been to the Savanna area, so I don't know if I will return any time soon, but if/when I do, I'll stay here.
