| A delightful state park.

This state park has some great hiking and access to other outdoor activities. We didn't have reservations for a Thursday night during prime summer vacations, but were able to get a site with water and electric without too much trouble. Bathrooms are basic, but considering how many folks were in the park, they were clean and maintained. Camping Cost: $32.10 + daily entrance fee of $9.00. We'd stay here again if we're in the area.

| Good Place To Stay

This is a place that we camp at a couple of times a year. The sites are spacious but electricity can be an issue sometimes. The electric poles can be quite far away from the pad and are placed between campsites sometimes on the wrong side of the camper. I strongly suggest have at least one 50 for extention cord just in case. The bathrooms/showers have been being remodelled over the last few years and they are kept fairly clean but during a busy weekend the toilet paper can run it fast and the showers can be hard to get into without a wait. The outhouses scattered about the campground are another story all together. Though I'm used to using one so it didn't bother me as much they are small, dirty, smelly and VERY buggy. You can hike the State Park trails straight from the campground. They is also Sugar Valley Canoe just a little ways down the road and walking distance I'd you enjoy canoes, kayaks or tubing. They have a good store at Sugar Valley too unlike Turkey Run's campstore which is greatly lacking.

The showers and restrooms leave a lot to be desired and the camp store is poorly stocked, but other than that Turkey Run is one of my favorite places to camp.

| Great Park for Families

The park has numerous electric sites with both pull-through and back-in options. The campground is quiet at night, has paved roads and good sewer clean out facilities. We found the staff to be extremely helpful, the park was very clean, and there are dining options available on site. The campground has many wooded sites with several convenient bath houses. Near the campground is a state-run lodge with full-service restaurant, pool, and horse stables. If you are interested in canoeing, fishing, hiking or family activities like swimming pools and biking then this park is perfect. We did not notice any issues with bugs, but we were early in the season.

We have visited this park and RV campground multiple times. The hiking is some of the best in Illinois and Indiana. Bathrooms are nearly new and cleaned regularly No problems with anything. Sites are level. Sites vary from small and close together to wooded and private. The descriptions on the reservation pages will guide you to what you desire.

Overnight stop and booked online. Pretty area but overpriced...we paid full price and no military discount. I have FL state park pass and lifetime national parks pass, but they don't honor. Then we had to pay additional $9.00 for the park entry fee...not included in fee! Staff at the gate was not very pleasant... No water at our pitch...electric worked fine. No 4G at our site. Bathroom was nasty and in disrepair. Park seemed okay overall but as it was an overnight only, we paid fees and didn't use it. The park was separate from the camping, so this added fee could have been avoided. Lastly, no recycling...6 large dumpsters only. Won't be going back here.
