Campground Details

Open: Open all year

Located on the Mississippi River about 1 1/2 miles north of Oquawka near Illinois Route 164, Delabar State Park offers quality outdoor experiences for anglers, hikers, campers and picnickers.

Picnicking
Three picnic areas are available: one at the south end, one at the north end and one in the center of the park. All three are equipped with picnic tables and camp stoves. Picnic areas are conveniently located near parking areas. The center picnic area has a shelter to accommodate family group gatherings.

Drinking water and toilets are provided, and a playground is located near the center picnic area.
Cooking fires are permitted only in the camp stoves. Open fires are prohibited.

Camping
Areas for both tent and trailers are available. Electrical hook-ups, drinking water, a sanitary station and a jet pump for filling trailers are available. Campers must obtain a permit from the park staff before setting up camp. Group camping is available. Groups of 25 or more must have advance permission from the site superintendent. Reservations accepted.

Trails
Two marked trails covering nearly two miles through the woods are available for nature lovers and wildlife observers.

Fishing and Boating
River fishing is popular at Delabar State Park. Boats with motors of any size are allowed on the river. A launching ramp at the south end of the park and two boat docks make river access easy. While there are no boat rentals at the park, there is a marina nearby.

For anglers who prefer to fish lakes, Delabar State Park is located near Gladstone Lake, in Henderson County Conservation Area. The 27-acre Gladstone Lake has a maximum depth of 25 feet and 1 1/2 miles of shoreline. It has a variety of fish for the angler, a launching ramp, picnicking areas and camping.

Winter Sports
Many visitors take advantage of the backwaters of the Mississippi River for ice fishing and, when the ice is thick enough, ice skating.
