    Park Host was very helpful. Since we arrived when it was out of season. We were able to pick what ever site we wanted even though we already had reserved a spot. Nice campground Spacious sites. Great fishing spots.

    Huge Park. Right near the Mississippi river, and Savanna IL. Plenty of sites and most are private. Boat launch near by and you are equal distance from the Clinton Iowa or Galena IL areas. This is a good park to set up for a few days while you explore the area.
