Amazing! Beautiful, quiet, very helpful! We stayed there many times in the last year, and loved it. Woodland views, 2 pair of swans on the water, hiking trail, nice sites. And they have a beautiful wedding venue! We highly recommend this place.

We arrived at about 7:00 p.m. and we're given a full RV hook up on pitch 3, quite close to Reception and the entrance. Terri, the lady owner, saw us in. My wife's face creased in despair as she is quite immobile and quite simply could not manage the distance to the facilities. Upon learning this, Terri pulled out all... More

My family stayed for a week in one of the cabins they have. Teri, the owner, was super friendly. It was off season, but everything they advertised was made available to us if we wanted it. All we had to do was make a phone call. The grounds were wonderful. Two huge, stocked fish ponds, which fed us a couple... More

A lovely rv park, with extra wide spaces and very green grass, ponds and a beautiful location for hosting a wedding, anniversary or any special get together type of event. It is located just a few miles away from Jacksonville, IL, and about 40 min from Springfield. This is a place you could enjoy for several nights. The hosts (owners)... More

My family and I have stayed there two years in a row for my daughters softball tournament which is conveniently a VERY short distance from Lenz field. Owners are very nice, the campground is very well kept and spacious. The shower house is clean. We had a great time there, and as long as we keep going to that tournament,... More

I recently attended a wedding at this facility. The farm seemed like a great venue until we met the owner...aka the dictator. This woman was all about herself. She presented her rules in a very rude way. She was extremely unprofessional. She scolded the groomsmen for drinking out of our nicely engraved flasks that the groom gifted to us and... More

Restaurants and Bars cannot allow guests to bring in their own alcohol. When people bring alcohol to our venue and are drinking in addition to what our customers host at our bar it is a huge liability, as was the case with the flasks mentioned, as well as additional bottles. We pay a high price for State and County liquor... More

My husband recently had to go away for work and found Buena Vista Farms for his new home away from home. Our two youngest children and myself decided to visit and what a pleasant visit it was.

We're so glad we discovered this camping resort. The owners and staff are incredible. Service is impeccable. The entire campground was designed and built over a two year period. Sites are far apart (no sardine camping here)! This resort is designed with only permanent (seasonal) camping in mind at reasonable prices. There are, however, overflow sites where friends or family... More

Wow! We are so happy that our residential campers have made us their home, and brought friends along with them! We work hard to think outside the box, and be unique. God has blessed our land and we want to be good stewards of that, developing the natural beauty that is already there. Plans for the future are exciting and... More
