Pleasant Creek Campground (Oglesby, Illinois)


Hope everyone is having a great weekend! We ended up getting a late start on the road so unfortunately didn’t make it to the winery to boondock for the night at the winery but found another hidden gem that fit what we were looking for. When I say we, I don’t mean just the dogs and I. Some of you know, and some don’t, but I am currently seeing someone and her name is Kitty which is another full time RVer that wanted to take this trip along with her kids. Some blogs in the works as we continue on will have more about her, and her kids.


Day one was a bit rough with breaking the handle off my hitch, denting the other side of the bed of my truck, and a couple other minor damages from trees hitting the top of the trailer, but all you can do is continue to move on. It’s the bad parts of this lifestyle.

Pleasant Creek Campground was very beutiful, quiet, tucked back in the woods that made it a place worth checking out if in the area. Some downfalls are very steep hills… I almost didn’t get my rig up the first hill after putting my truck in 2 low, and was forced to drop it down to 1 low to make it up. There is power and water, but no sewage so be prepared. If your a passport America holder, you can look at staying here for 14.00 per night 28.00 per night if you don’t have a membership.

Our next blog will be on the country side of Southern Illinois, and how different Northern and Southern Illinois is. Take care everyone, and have a wonderful day!

Have you ever wanted to chase your dreams but couldn't manage to get your foot out of the door to do it, due to money, or fear of the unknown? We decided to take a gamble at it by selling everything, buying a truck and trailer, and figuring out how we are going to manage having a family of 5 with a cat and dog fit in a trailer full time while we travel the country. We hope you will follow us along on our journey.
