The vibe at Sixmile Campground
Drop some Sixmile Campground knowledge on us.
The drive into sixmile campground was scenic and peaceful. Approximately 8 miles from town, the road is slow and windy. Sixmile is a little but past the day use area, where you'll see pit toilets along the road and a fee station. About 50 ft off the road, there are a small number of campsites with fire pits and picnic tables. The campsites are very primitive but the atmosphere is amazing. The sites are right along the Illinois River, aka the most stellar river ever! The water is pretty warm, still, and crystal clear. It was completely isolated and we didn't see anyone else camping there, even though it was labor day weekend. We did see a few day use fellows along other parts river in the area.
