Description

Savvy Hipcampers know that there is more to America’s corn belt then high fructose syrup and soybean fields. Welcome to Morrison-Rockwood Campground just north of I-80 near the Iowa and Illinois border. While this 1,164 acre park is a great overnight detour for cross country travelers (think camping plus on-site restaurant and bar service), to really get the most out of Morrison-Rockwood, plan ahead. If Lake Carlton, offering a world class (to Illinois standards) fishing and boating spot and 14 miles of equestrian trails doesn’t put a lil’ giddy up on your saddle, we’re not sure what will!

Camping is quiet, shaded, and peaceful at Rockwood. The south side of this park has a lake with boat launches, boat rentals (including paddle boats), a marina/restaurant, and pavilions next to playground equipment. The north side has the campsite loops and one playground. There are hiking trails, equestrian trails, and even an model aircraft club at the park. Not all the sites are able to be reserved ahead of time, so it is a great campsite for last-minute camping, as it is rarely filled up because of this. It is a bit buggy at Morrison-Rockwood, so plan accordingly. Other than that, this is one of the best campgrounds around.
