One of the great benefits of RV camping is you can access the great outdoors while taking all the comforts of home with you; all you really need from the campsite are a few basic features. This is why you need to consider camping at Siloam Springs Campground when you rent an RV in western Illinois.
This rustic and family-friendly Clayton campground is nestled amongst the trees, creating such stillness that you can hear the quiet. It has restrooms with showers, and some of the sites have electrical hookups. Everything else you need is already in your rental RV. There are dozens of miles of equestrian trails where you can hike or horseback ride that take you up over high ridges and down through wooded valleys.
Once you're here, you'll have access to a lake where you can swim, boat, or fish, and there's a concession stand by the lake that sells food, fishing tackle, and bait, and rents canoes and boats. Siloam Springs State Park (which the campground is a part of) has a picnic area with tables and charcoal grills, shelters, and restrooms. The picnic area also has a playground in case you have young children with you and horseshoe pits which everyone can use. Hunting is allowed within the park, and if you're here during the winter, you can enjoy cross-country skiing, sledding, ice skating, and ice fishing (weather permitting). Keep your RV rental nearby, and you can finish your winter activities with a hot meal and beverage in a warm environment.
Search for an RV in Adams County, and you can choose from a wide variety of RV makes and models for the one that best suits your vacation needs. Start by taking your Clayton camper rental to Wakonda State Park. Wakonda is near Quincy (but just across the Missouri State border) and has not one but several lakes you can enjoy. You can go swimming here or observe the thousands of birds that congregate around the lakes; the park is also renowned for its fishing, with largemouth bass, bluegill, crappie, and catfish being the species anglers can vie for.
Great River National Wildlife Refuge has three divisions, one near Quincy and a second near Louisiana, Missouri to the south (the third is near Alexandria, also in Missouri). The refuge consists mainly of floodplain forests, wetlands, sedge meadows, and grasslands, with slow-moving waters flowing through. As such, it is a bird watcher's paradise, providing food and shelter for a variety of bird species. Photography is another popular activity within the park, and you can enjoy fishing and hunting in season with the appropriate licenses. You'll have an opportunity to observe bald eagles, herons, and egrets, depending on the season, and observe some resident mammals such as deer, skunks, and opossum.
Meredosia National Wildlife Refuge was established in 1973 to protect and provide a habitat primarily for waterfowl and migrating bird species, but also for the fish and wildlife that historically reside here. The refuge's landscape consists of upland and bottomland forest, prairie, seasonal wetlands, and permanent marsh. The park is a good destination if you want to learn more about its environment as it offers outdoor education programs (you should call ahead to find out more information) as well as staff-led activities and self-guided hikes.
When you're motorhome camping at Siloam Springs State Park, you'll want to leave some time to experience the culture and urban environments on hand, and a good city to start with is Mount Sterling. It's a small town with a friendly vibe and a winery where you can enjoy the majestic views of the Little Ozarks while sampling their products in a comfortable environment. You can also visit a local bar that has sports entertainment, their own craft beers, and other entertainment. If it's a meal you're after, there are several eateries to choose from; the cuisines offered are largely American and what you might expect to find, but most of the venues are locally owned and operated, offering freshly prepared items using locally sourced ingredients.
Another city you might find interesting is Griggsville, which has a museum that tracks the genealogical records of local families as far back as the town's founding. The town is home to one of Illinois' oldest state fairs and has been nicknamed "The Purple Martin Capital of the Nation." A resident devised a plan to attract these colorful birds which can eat thousands of mosquitoes a day. This has resulted in making the city almost mosquito-free as well as helping to nickname the purple martin “America's Most Wanted Bird.” It's a small town with a small restaurant scene but enough variety to satisfy most people's preferences.
