Lincoln, Illinois


This is a privately owned, postage-stamp sized campground off historic Route 66 in Lincoln, IL. Close to town and easy access to the interstate, but a world away! Be prepared to be greeted by Wrigley, the camp dog! This campground has an abundance of tall trees for shade and is surrounded by corn and soybean fields on a paved county highway. Camp A While is your perfect pass through overnight stay on your way to your destination!

Host is very rude. Very small, don’t try it with a bigger rig.

Great Overnight Stay
I traveled from Michigan to Branson, Missouri and I chose Camp A While as my halfway point for an overnight stay, the brothers and Wrigley were awesome you may feel like you are in the country but there are a lot of near by shops. The hospitality was so good I stop here again on my way back too Michigan.

Great little place to stop. Owners are super friendly. It is small but don’t let that stop you. We will definitely stop again. Nice and quite location.

What A Great Stop...
Yes, small place but the few spots were more than large enough for a 40’ A with toad and hookups were solid. Restroom was closed so no fifth star but the guys who run it were pleasant and helpful, the greeter dog was a hoot to play ball with, and sunrise over the cornfield was exactly the way to start the next travel day. Great stop if passing thru...

Sweet Little Campground!
We arrived after hours to this sweet spot with full hookups surrounded by corn fields. Everyone was very friendly and helpful getting us backed in. It’s a little unexpected gem and very quiet!

Very Convenient
Easy to access the campground. Pull through site was level. Loved the view of the cornfields around us! We would definitely stay here again!

Very small and tight. $40 is way overpriced for what you. The manager was very kind and helpful. Don't know if WiFi was available, didn't use it. Just spent the night. Was quiet enough to get a good night's sleep. Travelled on the next morning.

Very Small
Smallest campground I've ever seen. Bathrooms not the greatest. For passing thru it was fine. Very quiet at night which was nice. Very overpriced though considering they offer nothing but a spot to put your motorhome. No picnic tables, no fire pits, no clubhouse. They do have wifi

Great Place
Love the place for once it was level. Found a ripe tomato on the ground had it with salad. Lots of places to sit and glide in gliders or rocking chairs. Just like home not over crowded. Not a parking lot RV park.

Just a tiny place in a cornfield. We enjoyed it. Simple but just right.

This small but quaint & clean little campground was great for our overnight accommodations. Offers full hookup w/electric, water, & sewer. Restrooms & showers are a little dated but fit the Route 66 and vintage theme and they are clean. The sunny / shady sites were the perfect place to overnight. It was a surprise oasis in the cornfield with easy access to the interstate. Write down the directions the owner gives you to get there when you call to make your reservation. Seems to be able to accommodate last minute reservations. Would stay here again if in the area.

Nice quiet place just on the outskirts of Lincoln. Owners are friendly. I would recommend this place if you are in the Lincoln area.
