Funny, I couldn't find anything on the web in terms of their having a website advertising their campground. (At least not under "Happy Hollow.")

OK, found it just under "Illinois Fairgrounds Campground."

Our friends that show hogs and cattle were luckier as they were on higher ground. The water never got into their camper but they couldn't get to the camper because of the high water. Although this much rain is extraordinary I think that area should not be designated for camping or parking.
