Bridge 23 Campground is a small camping and water access area on the Hennepin Canal in Annawan, Illinois. The camping area is accessed via Highway 78 just a short distance from Interstate 80.

Bridge 23 Campground does have vault toilets, a trash can, a single picnic table, two fire rings (campfires are allowed only in fire rings that are provided), and a boat ramp into the Hennepin Canal.

This is a nice site, but is small and has limited amenities. Traffic noise from Highway 78 is noticeable during the day. It appears to be a spot that ls popular with local residents so expect to have some vehicles coming and going.

Verizon and AT&T both have coverage at Bridge 23 Campground, but data speeds are slow, particularly on upload.
