My family and I have been to countless amounts of campgrounds and enjoyed the majority of them. In effort to expand our vacation network we decided to come to this campground. Although skeptical of coming due to the lack of amenities we have it a shot. We arrived and we were greeted in a hostile manner. We had a sudden... More

This place was very clean and quaint. Pool was small but wet so it worked. Office people were friendly but stern. Rowdy people won't last long here. There were no activities but we spent most of the day either at Starve Rock or in the pool. You could hear the highway but with the air on in the camper we... More

I read the reviews and was a little nervous. The ladies at check on were really nice. The site is perfect, H12. It's right across from a small park, a few kids playing there. The campground is really clean, quiet and peaceful The pool was clean. They have the usual rules for a campground which is not as strict as... More

We are first time campers and Hickory Hollow was the perfect experience. The deciding factor to staying here was the free wifi. We rented an RV and took our two grandsons, age 8 and 11, the 8 year old was the one who asked about the wifi. I didn't realize how important being connected is even on a camping trip.... More

To start, I booked 2 sites 5 weeks in advance and specified that we wanted 2 sites next to each other. At that time, we were told "No problem." When we arrived we were told "We don't have assigned sites, its first come first serve." We were also limited to what sites we could choose from, which later that evening,... More

After searching different campgrounds in the area, Hickory Hollow seemed like the perfect place for our family to stay for our little getaway to Utica. Even though there were several bad reviews about too many rules and rude staff, we still decided stay. I really don't mind if rules are enforced when we have a little girl, but WAS a... More

We stayed here for one night while traveling. We were little hesitant due to some of the reviews, but we are glad we stayed. The staff was very friendly, and told us that they do enforce ALL the rules. The rules are no different than all other campgrounds, but they are actually enforced. We had our 2 dogs with us,...

This would be nice campground if not for the hostile check in. As it was so bad, I must warn folks to consider other campgrounds. The hostility makes for an unpleasant stay. The park has so much going for it otherwise with nice sites, some with concrete pads.
