We are staying at Jim Edgar/Panther Creek for Father;s day weekend...close to oldest son.
Is probably the most corrupt state????? Is the most would be more like it.
I understand that Panther Creek has full hook-ups.
My wife and I do a lot of camping at Camp Lakewood in Effingham. Full hook up with cable, wi-fi, Good Sam discount, ecscort to site, and some of the nicest owners you will ever meet. As a matter of fact, we will be there for the 4th of July weekend.
Bo Woods is a Army Core campground just south of Sullivan. They do have some full hook-up sites.
In the Champaign/Urbana Mahomet area, there are two. One is Tin Cup Campground, and the other is Champaign Sportsman Club in Mahomet.
In LeRoy, there is Morain View State Park.
In Danville there is Kickapoo State Park.
We have camped at some others that I don't think are very nice. I really don't like to discourage people from going someplace because we don't like it. Kentuckiana in Hopedale is one. Very narrow sites, short sites, too. If somebody in a motorhome has their awning out, and parked on the end, they may have to put their awning up so you can get around the corner. The sites are so short that if you have a 30 foot trailer, and somebody is parked either behind or in front of you, good luck on getting your unit square in the site. This campground isn't made for bigger units.
Good luck on your search. We may see you around sometime.
