This is a lovely, clean campground with many recent improvements. There is much for kids, a pretty lake with a fountain and walking trails, and it is easily accessible from Highway 74 a few miles east of Galesburg.

Bill Dison

Beautiful campground! Well maintained. The weather wasn’t cooperative but we still enjoyed our visit. We are planning on staying again next year! Thank you!

Brendan Schaley

This was our second stay at this campground and we love it. Very friendly staff, clean grounds, quiet peaceful place. The kids loved the addition of the bounce house. Only downfall is showers in lady's bathroom needs different shower heads.

Angelique Elfering

Very friendly campground. Nice fishing pond. Lots are a little small and tight for pulling out. Public bathrooms were clean, but a bit outdated. Had a nice Halloween trick or treat for the small kids in October. Very quiet after 10 p.m. No security, people can enter the grounds without a "badge" or bar code.

Charles Blumenstock

Enjoyed our stay. Sites with trees are well maintained and there are signs additional improvements are in the works such as fire pits. WE were told it’s becoming a KOA again next year. There is a pool for summer, putt putt, walking trails for things to do.

Melvin and Rebecca Schafer

Jovanna Porter

Great place! Well run. Clean with nice amenities: immaculate laundry, heated pool, hiking trail, fishing pond, etc. The sites are shaded and roomy. Will be back next time we are in the area.

Sarah Dixon

Great stay! We stayed 2 nights. We were camping with a friend and we were able to have sites next to each other. Our (7 total ages 2-14) kids had so much fun! They loved the fishing (catch and release) they caught a combined 62 fish! The pool was heated and well maintained, free bikes/ peddle tractors for them to use and mini golf! Kids were entertained parents were relaxed! The campground is super close to lots of shopping and restaurants as well. We decided to do a Dairy Queen run one night for ice cream and it was less than 10 minutes to get there! Will continue to come here!!

Ann Meyer

Very relaxing campground. Couldn't get hot water in the shower.

Walt Stewart

Friendly and helpful staff. Easy on and off the interstate. Pull thru sites. Didn’t use any of the facilities since just stopping for the night but would definitely stop here again.

Erik Hoffman

Definitely a hidden gem everything was very well kept and Jeff was amazing. Large spots with a ton of room and a very nice pool. They also have propane refill by the office which is amazing

Gary Rouse

Very nice campground. Staff were very friendly.

Ian Beaver

Chose this campground on our way to ND & SD based on the excellent reviews and it did not disappoint! Conveniently close to interstate but no highway noise! Campground is meticulously clean, WiFi works great, all spots have shade trees and are level! We enjoyed the heated pool, the putt putt coarse, the no leash dog run, and the fishing pond! Will definitely stay here again the next time we are traveling this way! Thanks for a great stay!

Diana Winter

Park was very clean, spots were level, the staff was very friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back.

Michael Baer

Nice clean place and very quiet....

Don Allen Allen

Very nice park. Ample room for 40’ fifth wheel and the bath and showers were very modern and clean. The only negative was the distant train that went by in the middle of the night and caused my wife to lose some sleep. It did not bother me. We stayed in site 91.

Kathy McDonald

Lived the campgrounds. Easy access. Lots of shade. Big areas to exercise dogs and very friendly owners. Will differently be back
