Default Camping & Fishing

Hello everyone !

I have heard that there is a nice camping area somewhere in the East Moline IL area (maybe Hampton Dam ???) just in front of the Mississippi river specifically for fishing. I believe you can rent an overnight stay(tent) for just $10. My son and I would love to go there sometime.

Where is this place ? Any name etc.

Have you been there ? is it worth the trip ?

Is it a safe area ?

Any other recommendations?

Your help is well appreciated. Thanks in advance

Good Bites to all !!!

Mississippi Palisades state park is beautiful too. It's near Savanna, IL. Awesome bluffs overlooking the river, clean shower/bath rooms. Roomy, wooded sites with plenty of privacy.
