Named for the six miles it takes on Illinois River Road before reaching camp, Sixmile Campground has four walk-in campsites with picnic tables, fire pits and two shared vault toilets. There aren’t any water pumps to get your glug glug on and you’ll need to pack-out your rubbish, but this camp does have two covered picnic sites to take a break from UVs or passing downpours. All sites are right on the wild, bring tha noise Illiniois River, so you can get a taste of what it’s like to be a river rat. Check the camp website for alerts and advisories.

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.

A nice place to sit.The beautiful, warm Illinois river by the camping sites.The water in the Illinois river is still and gorgeous.
