Vacation near the Quad Cities and Mighty Mississippi!
We would like to welcome Sun Retreats Rock River, our newest acquisition, and invite you to experience this premier Illinois camping destination in the village of Hillsdale. Enjoy a fantastic location where you can relax and enjoy the great outdoors within an hour of popular hot spots found in Rock Island and Moline, cities that are both part of the Quad Cities on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River.

Camp at Sun Retreats Rock River

This RV resort and campground offers 280 acres of sprawling grounds with paved roads that provide a dust-free camping experience and a secure gated entryway to ensure your privacy and peace of mind. Our premium amenity package has something to keep everyone in your camping party busy and entertained during your stay here, including family-friendly themes and activities every weekend and on holidays during peak season.

Spend the day at the large outdoor swimming pool with a sizeable pool deck that includes plenty of poolside furniture and shaded seating areas for guests to enjoy – you can always say hi to our friendly pool attendant while you're there too!  The swimming pool area is located adjacent to the Plaza Dining Hall, where you can visit The Sunset Lakes Grill to order everything from your morning coffee to juicy burgers and golden french fries, appetizers, soft drinks, ice cream, shakes and more.

Challenge family and friends to a round of miniature golf or enjoy other outdoor recreations like horseshoes, tennis, shuffleboard, volleyball, rolle bolle, and basketball or make some friends at one of our three playgrounds. Cast your line out and try your luck on one of the five stocked fishing ponds for some catch and release fishing; no license required. Kayaks and canoes are also available on Sunset Lake for guests to explore and experience the water from a different perspective. For boat lovers, we have a boat ramp with access to the Rock River, plus on-site boat storage for your convenience. You can also take advantage of the fully equipped fitness center, so normal workout routines are not interrupted during your stay with us.

Guests can choose from a wonderful selection of accommodations with on-site laundry facilities, bath houses and a convenience store, where you can purchase items like camping supplies, groceries, souvenirs and apparel, firewood, ice and more. If you're into rustic camping, bring your tent and camp out under the stars on one of our grassy tent sites that offer guests everything from a primitive experience to water and electric hookups. RV sites come with 30-amp service or full hookups that include 50-amp service with options that range from grassy sites to full concrete slabs with patios. You can also upgrade your RV or tent experience by selecting one of the gorgeous lakefront sites!

Sunset Lakes also offers a great selection of fully furnished vacation rentals with one to three bedroom options depending on your family's needs. Enjoy all of the modern conveniences of home with heat and air conditioning, a private bathroom with towels, and a fully appointed kitchen that includes pots and pans, a coffee maker, and plates, cups and silverware provided for four people.
