Granite City, IL
While dry camping around St. Louis, we stayed at Horseshoe lake for a chance to dump, refill, cook outdoors, and drive to places in only the van.
Horseshoe lake is located close to St. Louis – about 30 minutes from the city, and also only a five minute drive from the Cahokia Mounds and other interesting sights.
Overall the park was quiet, baring one night where a truck decided to race around the campground loop a few times before leaving again.
Covered trash cans and water spigots are available in regular intervals through the camping area, and a dump station is available at the front of the campground. Bonus points, checkout time is 3 PM – so there is no rush to get out in the morning.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and, if in the area long enough, will be staying again.
