Situated a ways west of Springfield, this is a good rural campground that still offers close access to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library and many other historic sites. It’s around a 45 minute drive into Springfield, and the area is surrounded by numerous quaint, small midwestern towns. Jacksonville, Illinois is just down the road and offers all the amenities that a town can provide, including a country club and golf course.
People who are looking for secluded, countryside campgrounds with outdoor activities and easy access to nearby towns will enjoy Crazy Horse Campground. This family-friendly campground offers plenty of space for the kids to run around and play while the adults go fishing on their pond. The campground also offers regular activities, arts and crafts, disc golf, live music, and a fully stocked camp store.
