    Has anyone ever camped at Glenwood Farms in Marseilles, Illinois? I used to go there all the time when I was a kid. Some of my best memories of being a kid happened there. I haven't been able to find much of anything about the place online, other than a few phone numbers that no one picks up.

    Does anyone know if this place is still open? I'd love to take my kids there.

    My husband used to camp there as a kid also. LOL, he could never remember the correct name of the place. I'll see what I can find out and let you know if I can get any info. Laura

    I will be in Marseilles this weekend, wheeling at Cliffs Insane Terrain offroad park. If I get any extra time I will see if I can find it and check it out.

    I never made it to the campground, but I asked a few people and they said it was alive and kicking. The people I spoke to had nothing but positive things to say about it.

    We went there at the end of last year just to check it out. We just drove through and looked at the place one time while we were on a motorcycle run. It's pretty big and the bathrooms were just as good if not a little better than anywhere else we go. They have a pool, a pond, and some kind of little store(did not go in). We are going to try it this year.
