    Considering a weekend at this park over the summer. Has anyone been recently that can comment on the condition and cleanliness?

    Also, anyone come across a campground map that shows where the shower house and playground are at? Need to pick a spot close to those!

    Any other thoughts or comments are appreciated!

    Illinois State beach in Zion was my first trip with my pop up last year!
    You can see the campsite map at
    I had a great site on the east side that had a small trail to the beach. The beach there is rocky but there is a groomed swimming beach on premises. I was lucky enough to get a larger site with trees on either side for a bit of privacy. It wasn't near the bathhouse. The middle section has an area that looks like RV parking.
    The bathhouse was clean and shower water warm.
    If you drink they have a dry section so don't choose those.
    I felt comfortable camping alone, they frequently drive around to keep an eye on things.
    I will definitely stay there again. Let me know if there is anything specific you want to know.
