I have not camped in this park but did drive down and look it over when I was in the area a couple years ago. It is, as Ruthe says, a nice park. She mentioned the nearby railroad which would discorage some but it's not high speed nor is it very busy. Speaking of the Pickers, a few miles up the river from the site of this year's Mississippi River Rally is Savanna Illinois. On the Main Street in Savanna is an antique store called Frank Fritch Finds. Petroliana abounds. Between Frank's store and the Campground is the famous edge of town establishment Poopys, a biker bar where you can get a tattoo artist for 8 hours for like $800.
Sounds like a bargain. Nice reports throughout your trip Ruthe. Thank you
