Based on previous reviews, we decided to come to this CG for two nights. First of all, there are NO signs. When we called, the gentleman said he would meet us at the gate. When we arrived, he escorted us to a site: wish I could post pics. We were very disappointed and dismayed. Yes, they have had a lot of rain and the water has encroached over many sites from the IL River, but from what we could see, the sites weren't that great to begin with. We wanted to leave, but we were stuck. We couldn't pull around because of the mud to exit. No matter what we did we would have to remove our toad, so we took off our toad and backed into a site with the idea we would stay one night. There is a water hose with a water filter attached and that is attached to the water spigot in the ground: that's your water connection. The owners are very nice. We were just very disappointed, as we had based our stay on previous reviews. With PA, we paid $13, but we won't be back.
A nice campground but there is not much space between campsites -- at least where we were parked. It is clean with flowers at each site. There is a patio with picnic table, but, like I said, you could prob touch your neighbor's RV if you sat at the picnic table. Nice swimming pool which closed early at 8:30 -- 10:00 would've been nicer. Friendly host escort to site. Easy on/off of I-80 and quiet -- far enough off the road cannot hear highway traffic. A little pricey -- we paid $36 with 10% Good Sam discount.
There were a few potholes driving down the road that led to Oakwood RV Park and the entrance isn't very impressive, but once you get into the park, it was like an oasis: no traffic noise, quiet and restful. Good satellite/internet reception. They have a church where services are held every Sunday and the basement also serves as a storm shelter. Wonderful long, graveled pull-through sites with patio and picnic table. If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stay here. If peace, quiet and tranquility are what you are looking for, Oakwood RV Park is the place.
