Discover Sangchris Lake Campground

When you're starting to search for an RV in Sangamon County, Illinois, consider camping at Sangchris Lake Campground, for starters, and you can also enjoy the state park with the same name. Sangchris Lake State Park is ideal for getting some quality time with Mother Nature while wandering around the forests of maple, oak, butternut, and persimmon. There’s also both fishing and boating, meaning that you can float around in peace and quiet for hours if you want to. There’s also archery, metal detection, and even dog training in this beautiful park.

What about the RV park itself, though? Well, it welcomes both you, your friends and family, and also your pets if you’d like to bring them. RV camping at Sangchris Lake Campground is the perfect opportunity to leave the outside world behind for a bit while you reconnect with nature. Some time away from all the stress that comes with day-to-day life would be great, wouldn’t it? Well, you know where to go: this great RV campground near Rochester. The park also has electrical hookups, so no need to worry about that.

If you want to mix up your nature experience with some villages and cities, then Rochester, the nearby town, is a great place to start. You can also visit Edinburg - and not the capital of Scotland, but the little village in Illinois. There’s also Pawnee, of course, yet another town with great personality and charm, and for something busier, you can always drive your RV rental to Chatham and Springfield. Almost everywhere you go, the background will consist of cornfields as far as you can see, and there are many historical sites and recreation opportunities around, such as golf.

The Great Outdoors

During your RV rental vacation in Sangamon County, it’ll be easy to notice that former President Abraham Lincoln was active in the area, especially in and near Springfield. Therefore, you'll have the chance to visit the stunning Lincoln Memorial Garden and Nature Center, on the outskirts of Springfield. The center has made it its mission to honor President Lincoln by recreating the landscape that he would have thought familiar - and what a good job they’ve done.

Nearby, you’ll find Henson Robinson Zoo, located by Lake Springfield. Here you can walk through recreations of natural habitats from all over the world while saying hello to all sorts of wonderful animals. Have you ever seen an African painted dog, or come close to a tortoise from Galapagos? What about a red wolf? Well, once you’ve visited this magical place, you definitely have, so go check it out while you're camping at Sangchris Lake Campground.

Any Rochester campers who want to experience even more deep forests and serene nature need to drive their rental RV to the amazing Gurgens Park, just north of Springfield. Here you can hike, hike, and do some more hiking before you try out the mountain bike trails, which are both single and double track. While you’re out stretching your legs, you’ll be able to see the beautiful landscape of prairie and flood plains that have recovered excellently since their days as farmed land. Stock up on snacks and have a lovely, long picnic in this fantastic park.

Exploring the Area

Anyone renting a motorhome near Sangchris Lake Campground who also happens to be a history buff has struck the motherlode, being so close to Rochester. The village has done a lot to preserve its history and make sure that generations to come can take part in the stories of the former inhabitants. There are also events such as Movies in the Park in this charming village.

Equally charming but significantly larger Springfield is next up for some exploration. You could probably spend a week in the city without having visited every place and establishment that has connections to Abraham Lincoln, but you can at least try to see the library and his former home. If you want some more action, rent an RV in Springfield, IL in September so you won’t miss Route 66 Mother Road Festival. This fantastic event has cars, live music, and entertainment for the whole family, and so does the Illinois State Fair. This fantastic fair gives you an opportunity to not only watch racing and eat food from every corner of the world, but you’ll also see the Butter Cow, made from 500 pounds of butter.
