Took the grandchildren (8 & 12) for a camping weekend. Visitor's Center is very nice with educational exhibits, small cafe, and gift shop. Campsites were very good -- we got the very last one so it wasn't as nice as some others but still very good. There are hot showers and flush toilets. There is potable water at the sites. Sites have electricals and are set up for tents or large campers. Firewood is avilable at the camp store (the fire starters @ $2 ea. are a good investment.
Skip the paddle boat tour.
The Hike & Lunch is really great. Our guide was a geologists who taught us a lot about the rock formations and the history of the park. The hike is a little strenuous but not too bad. It was in the 90's when we went so that made it a little tough. La Salle Canyon is worth the whole trip. There are some outstanding views of the IL River. Don't miss it.
