My family looks forward to an annual camping trip at Evening Star every year. Each year we have anywhere from 8 to 17 people that gather together to enjoy the "country" life. We rent a minimum of 2 cabins, sometimes 3 and bring 1 sometimes 2 RV's and tents, if needed, with us. 2016 marked the 10th year of our... More

I had a permanent for several years at Evening Star. It is just 1 hr away from Springfield & not far from Central Illinois Dragway where my husband races on weekends. The owners were always helpful and informative & quick to assist whenever a situation would arise. My kids enjoyed the fire truck rides, swimming pool, miniature golf & music... More

We've been to Evening Star 3 times now and have enjoyed ourselves each trip. It's a terrific family campground with lots to do for the kids, and adults as well. We have been down during the weekends preceding Halloween and it's tons of fun. They have a haunted house, costume contest, hayrack rides, arts and crafts and trick-or-treating around the... More

First visit and we were so happy! The owners are supper nice and all they want is their guest to have a great experience! We had almost 50 in our camping group and they accommodated us with a smile! Kids also had a blast! Only one negative thing.. Bathrooms/showers need updated.

Great place to go in Central Illinois. There's plenty of space at every site, a friendly mix of seasonal campers and weekend warriors and the staff is great. I wish we had more campgrounds like this one in the area! You can bring a golf cart here and the kids love this place. Its great for group camping too!

Owners were really nice as well as the other campers. I couldn't believe how friendly people were. we stayed only one night. we camped in a tent with our 3 kids (2,6,10). They had a blast. The camp store was really cool, I thought. We took advantage of the fishing pond but didn't actually catch anything. My son asked them... More

This is one of our favorite campgrounds to stay out, we have stayed here once a year for the last 8 years. The staff is friendly, always escorts us to our site, has loaned us adapters when needed. We camp with our family, three young girls and always have 2 to 3 other families with us. The activities are nice,... More

We recently stayed at Evening Star and I must respectfully disagree with the previous poster who rated the campground so poorly. My wife, 2 kids (8 & 10) and I recently stayed there over the Columbus Day weekend and had a terrific time! It was one of 2 Halloween Weekends the camp celebrates and they pull out all the stops....

The campground itself was very nice & other campers were very friendly. However, the owners seem to look for things to complain about. They are NOT good with children, although the campground promotes itself as "family friendly". They complained twice to us about foolish things that did not affect them or anybody else at all, and we heard from two... More
