  • We have been here several times to fish. I can't say we catch too much, but we always have a good time. The scenery is always beautiful and it is alway so peaceful out there. I have gotten to see some...  more »

  • Pros: Grounds were well maintained. Enough trees to provide adequate shade. The campground was not too crowded so campers were not right on top of each other. Campground hosts were friendly and helpfu...  more »

  • Haven't spent much time here, but watched the 2017 eclipse there and found it to be a very nice looking place. Swimming area, lots of hills and seemed to be some decent trails, though didn't get a chance to explore. Well maintained smaller park that seemed like a good place for from shore lake fishing as well.
  • Needs much attention. As does everything else under king rauners domain. Nice sites. Electric only with water available around the park. Dump station at entry to Hickory Hill campground. The road is in terrible shape. Hopefully it will actually get the needed, and long planned, fixes before next season. At least the plan was surveyed this summer. Fingers crossed! In spite of this we enjoy the time we spend there.
  • Great RV campground with nice sites, clean showers and bathrooms. Road is a little rough coming in and beach is closed but the rest of the park is great. Plenty of trails for walking and mountain biking. Highly recommend.
  • Campground Hosts are FANTASTIC!! Even helped me set up my screen room. Park is very neat and bathrooms are always clean!! One of our favorite places to camp!!
  • Great little park. Nice hiking trails around the lake and river. Our campsite was right next to the main road, but other than that it was a peaceful area. I would go back again.
