Herrin, IL

In a camper's world simplicity rules. As long as there is adequate access (no trees blocking the path and fairly level sites and there is a source of water, electric and a recepticle for sewer, joy reigns. Miss out on one or two we can deal with the inconvenience, but more than that, there is not much happiness. Especially when you are in a caravan with several campers each having their own idea of what a good site is like.

In Herrin, IL at the Four Seasons Campground they seem to have it all. The sites are all large with lots of grassy area and space between you and the next camper. We got the pull through sites so parking was a breeze. Full service (water, electricity and sewer on site). Wi-fi internet to boot. All for $20 per night is a bargain for sure. I think ever single one of our group was pleased with the find.

The management here also have artwork throughout the campground. They have carved into dead trees some wonderful works of artistry. The town has a magnificent city park with lots of play area, sports and a public pool across the street. Nice little village and the campers were even more impressed to find that it had a Walmart to boot!

Kudos to Herrin, IL. We have loved the visit.
