This year my son and I chose to camp and fish at Little Grassy. We found our camping and fishing experience awesome. The campground and lake are beautiful. They have great camping cites that were well kept and close to the water where you can park your boat. Their bathrooms and showers were clean. The camp ground had good security.... More

Well we started out wanting to go to another campground but they were full so when looking for a plan B we set out to look for this campground. It was relatively easy to find. Beautiful drive in since fall colors were in full swing. First glance looked like a lot of campsites, signage brought us down to Marina where... More

Don't sit on the $2.99 plastic deck chairs placed on the pontoon boats...they'll brake and you'll be charged $20. Great policy! The owner(s) may want to look into replacing the plastic chairs with something a little more environmentally friendly...if they care.

We enjoyed our visit to the marina for canoe rental. The beach was small but pretty. Owners were so sweet and the campground looked very well cared for. The lake was gorgeous with plenty of birds, turtles & fish to watch and few other boats.

The bathroom was so dirty, every time I brought my disinfectant wipes. The people were rude. I would say hello and no one replied. We brought our friends for the first time camping, very disappointed. Worst camping trip.

LGLCM is located about 7 miles south of Carbondale inside Crab Orchard National Wildlife Refuge. It's also close to Giant City State park's lodge and hiking trails. The county road through the campground is black-top. The park is very secluded and was quiet during the week. There are many shady sites. LGLCM advertises 14 full hookups. Think I counted 5... More
