Thanks
Plan Route-- I-57 up to Exit 283 (US Hwy 24). East on Hwy 24 to Hwy 31. North on Hwy 31 to Hwy 6. East on Hwy 6 to Hwy 15 north to Goshen.

Any suggestions on this route for a few campgrounds?
We plan is to stop north of Memphis on I-57 then someplace in southern Illinois.
Also any campgrounds south of Goshen fairgrounds the night before arriving on Saturday.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

If you don't need to go north of Memphis, take a look at Tom Sawyer's in West Memphis, AR. I LOVE this park - right on the banks of the Mississippi. We'll be stopping there on our way home. You might also look at Camp Lakewood in Effingham, IL - we've never been but are stopping on our way home based on reviews and recommendations on here.

I took this this morning w/ no traffic or construction. Just a few buggies to dodge.

I-69 to I-80 WB (Toll ) and get off at exit #107 to IN-13S through Middlebury. Then west on IN-4W to left on Blackport drive. This will take you right to the fairground.

I also too 115 from 24 to 15, nice short cut.

Ditto coming from Sanford near Midland on Friday.
