About Us

 

 

Stonefort Campground is located in Victoria, Illinois. It is a quiet, relaxing place for you to recharge. The sites are rented on a seasonal basis by the year. We also have daily camping in the older part of the campground.

The state of Illinois operates Snakeden Hollow Wildlife Area just two miles from Stonefort Campground. They maintain a giant Canada Goose flock and several fishing lakes for Illinois residents.

During the last few decades, coal was a powerful force causing acres of good farmland to roll over and give up the black energy. The local economy was temporarily spurred on as the land was piled into great heaps and lost its value as farmland. Low areas would hold water, but most of the water was too shallow to be of much use. In the early 1980ís, the coal company left the area and sold the land to people like me.

I dreamed of building campsites for people who wanted to get away from the noise and bustle of the city and enjoy the outdoors. It would have to be trouble free, without the hassle of emptying those little sewer wagons or worrying about how much power was available when you wanted to use your air conditioning. Good fishing lakes would be required. Mature shade trees on the sites would be great! Every site would be spacious enough that you wouldnít have to know what your neighbor was having for breakfast. But most importantly, each site would have a minimum of 50 feet of water frontage on the lake.

In 2004, the dream finally came true.

Stonefort Campground, featuring full hookup campsites on spacious waterfront sites.

All sites include:

At least 50 feet of waterfront

At least 2500 square feet of level to gently sloping grassy living area

Huge oak, cedar or cottonwood, and many other trees.

Seasonal residents only. Weekenders are not allowed in this part of the campground except to introduce them to seasonal camping. We usually have sites available for weekenders/daily camping in the older part of the campground. Call ahead for reservations.
