Went on a Friday night without reservations and there was many sites open. You can make reservations on line but it has to be three days in advance. The campsites were very clean. There are a campsite that has electrical and water hook up that are partially shaded. There is a tent site that is more wooded. Very pretty area.... More

We had been told this was a good place to hike. The problem we are here and it is raining too hard to enjoy the trails. We have to come back on a day of sun. The trail maps are laid out well.

There are three short hiking trails that must be reached from the campground that is at the entrance to the park. We chose to walk the High Bluffs trail. Beautiful scenery that takes you... More

We participated in the 2013 MOGA Mega-Event in Lake Shelbyville, IL. While the activity itself was not in Eagle Creek State Park, there are a number of Geocaches in the area, including one at the Conservation building. The grounds are beautifully maintained and the staff is friendly. There is a little hands-on exhibit room that's great for little kids to... More

It is on a Lake, offers swimming, boating and there is a really good golf course by the park. The park is large and well maintained.

This is a lovely park to go to if you want to camp, fish, hike or play a round of golf. Plenty of room for the kids to run and the dogs to play.
