On the Road Again

We're heading to the Illini State Park in Marseilles.  This campground is a little bit different as we don't have the wooded site as we did at Starved Rock.   You have a grassy site that sits on the Illinois River. 
We really enjoyed this campground!  It was great to watch the boats and coal barges go down the river.  There are wooded areas for hiking, fishing and a boat launch.  We found this campground to be filled with a lot of regulars from the western suburbs.  They refer to it as their "go to place".  I think it may become our go to place also.

Did I mention yet that the state parks only charge $20-$25 a night?  This includes electric, water, and about 1,000 stars in the sky.
