Yesterday I had some time to kill while traveling for work through Central Illinois and stopped to take a look at Sam Parr State Park in Jasper County. Its about an hour South East of Effingham Illinois. I have not given much thought to any Illinois State Park only because they are not advertised very well and their website compared to the Missouri State Parks honestly sucks.
Upon entering the campground there was only one person there and it was the Host…all other sites were vacant. Not too Surprising considering it was a Tuesday. Took a few pictures but nothing really stood out to me. The Playground was ropped off for some reason and there did not appear to be showers. With that said, it was a very nice spot with spaces spread out and pads of varying lengths. There were a good amount of water connections and plentiful electrical hookups but no sewer that I could see.
After taking a few minutes this morning and looking at the IL park system as a whole….there are a TON of state parks but navigating and finding details stinks.
