Campground Description

Randolph County State Recreation Area is a mecca for outdoor recreational activities. Fishing, hiking, picnicking, boating, hunting and camping are just a few of the choices, keeping even the most avid outdoorsman content. Located five miles northeast of Chester in Randolph County, it lies in the rolling hill country of southern Illinois. Offering a cool retreat from hot summer days, well shaded picnic areas, hiking trails and scenic forest stands await park visitors. Randolph County Lake is a 65 acre clear-water lake and is stocked with walleye, saugeye, channel catfish, redear and bluegill sunfish, and rainbow trout. Game fish such as largemouth bass, green sunfish, bullhead and crappie also can be found, so no angler should be disappointed. The area is renowned for its wooded areas and abundance of songbirds and wildlife. Thirteen miles of horse trails provide riders with the same panorama of sights and sounds.

The camping area offers 51 Class BE campsites, 95 Class C campsites and four Class D campsites.
