The Great Outdoors

Fishing is also popular, and anglers can catch bluegill, catfish, and bass in these waters. If you want to stroll around the park, there are over seven miles of trails that will lead through the nearby woods and fields. Uniquely, this park is one of the few places in Illinois where you can scuba dive, thanks to the deep clear water some of the lakes provide. If you want to relax, there are six scenic picnic areas where you can enjoy a snack.Alternatively, you can plan a visit to the nearby Turkey Run State Park. This breathtaking state park is located just across the state line in Indiana and provides visitors with hiking trails that lead down deep ravines. These ravines give visitors sublime views of sandstone rock formations from down below. This park also features Sugar Creek, which is a popular spot for watersports including kayaking, canoeing, and fishing. Catches include bluegill and bass - just make sure you acquire a state license first. After hiking around the park, you can sit back at one of the picnic areas and watch for animals in the wilderness, such as beavers, turkey vultures, and white-tailed deer.Another state park well worth exploring while camping at Kickapoo Campground is Walnut Point State Park. This park covers over 600 acres of woodlands along Walnut Point Lake. This lake covers nearly 60 acres, and its deep waters make it ideal for fishing, with catches that include brown bullhead, crappie, and largemouth bass.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
