Illini State Park Reviews & Ratings
Such a beautiful place! We didn’t have reservations, but the host was very friendly and got us right in! She also hooked us up with a very nice site. The bathrooms and showers are very clean! Everyone is very friendly here. We will definitely be coming back!!! I highly recommend Illini State Park. Can’t beat the price either!
Beautiful park along the Illinois River. Nice trails and views. Can walk to downtown Marseilles.
Surprisingly run down and not really well maintained. In whitetail, you will probably need 60 feet of extension cords to use electric sites. Power poles are between sites, not typical back street side corner of site. A little effort would go a long way here. Most other Illinois State parks are much better. Quiet though. The other loop by the river is packed...small sites,no privacy at all. Tent sites are the best sites here. Having a nice time in the shade anyway!
I was here to use the boat launch. Very nice launch and docks with what seemed to be ample trailer parking for a Sunday. I didn't use all the amenities but it seems they had a lot including camping, bathrooms and picnic areas.
Very Nice Camp. And Icecream Stand
