We’ve always been satisfied with KOA campground quality so, traveling from Cedar Point, Ohio to St. Louis we stopped for an overnight stay at the Casey, Illinois KOA. The campground was conveniently located just a few minutes from I-70 (exit 129).
The Casey KOA is located in a large field dotted with mature shade trees. Interior roads and individual campsites are gravel in relatively good condition. Sites are a comfortable size, with plenty of room for large rigs, slideouts and awnings. There are 80 sites on the property, with about 15 full hook-ups (20/30 amps), with some 50amp. There is a pond with fishing (no license required) and boating (rentals) available.
The property and facilities are clean and well maintained. The campstore has a limited selection of groceries and camping supplies. The campground also has a pool (in season), a pavilion and meeting room, vollyball, basketball, laundry facilities and Kamping Kabins. An RV sales and service center with LP gas is also located on site. Casey KOA also has free Wi-Fi. During Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, they have pancake breakfasts, biscuits and gravy, potlucks and ice cream socials. Celebrate the 4th of July with a hayride to a prime spot for fireworks gazing.
Immerse yourself in the 19th century at the Lincoln Log Cabin State Historic Site near the Casey KOA. Costumed guides play Tom and Sarah Lincoln and their neighbors at this 86-acre working living history farm, owned in the 1840s by Honest Abe?s father and stepmother. You?re also only 45 miles from Arthur/Arcola, the hub of Illinois Amish country. Casey KOA is a good choice for an overnite stop or spend an extra day and visit the sites nearby.
For the last five years my huband and I have brought our family to Casey KOA. We love it. The owners are friendly and very helpful. The kids love the Friday night hayride. After we all enjoy the ice cream social. It is a great place to relax and get away.
