The sites are level and shady with blacktop drives and pads, and conveniently located common water spigots and sewer dump. The entire campground is in a shady oak forest which is peaceful, cool, breezy, but somewhat buggy. We were charged $20 per night even though the brochure handed to us after payment listed $15 as the correct amount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

CG was $15 for Sunday-Thursday and $20 for Friday and Saturday nights. Fill up your fresh water tank before coming. The water spigots are located in the interior of the camping loops and may have to be shared with 10+ other sites. You could easily be a couple hundred feet from the spigot if you are in one of the end sites. Beautiful wooded CG with lots of space, even on the weekend. Most sites have electrical but some do not. No sewer, only a dump station. Bathrooms were okay, not great but bearable. Most sites were level. We really enjoyed being near New Salem and saw a play at the theater. At night we walked home to a forest full of twinkling firefly lights and lightning and thunder overhead. I agree with the previous reviewers: be ready for lots of mosquitoes and other insects. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

There is an easy walking path to the historic village which we used after the visitor center was closed and had the whole town to ourselves!! Very buggy due to heavy rains at that time. The restrooms were well kept and well lit. There are two comfort stations. My kids liked the one in the back of the campground. There were only a few other campers when we visited, but it is a beautiful campground. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
