10 Reviews of Chicago Northwest KOA
A very basic KOA

It’s a reasonably clean campground. The spaces are tiny, open and cramped. In the pull through spaces, where we stayed, the curb side neighbor’s sewer dump was about 10 feet from our fire pit. He didn’t hook it up tight, I had to fix it for him or suffer the smell. The campground is next door to a cheesy western town attraction with “shoot outs” and a restaurant. Also about a mile from the Illinois Railway Museum. The pool was not open for the season yet so can’t comment about that, exception say it could have been less expensive to stay before the pool opens. Not much to do in the camp spaces but look at the road side of the next camper about 15 ft away.

Family friendly campground

We stayed here for a weekend and there were plenty of activities for the kids…the staff was friendly and the bathrooms were clean…our camp site was near the bathrooms, pool, and store so we were nice and close to all the activities…our family will definitely be back!

Wild West Town

My family stayed here a few years back and although it is a small campground it meets the standards of what you should expect of a KOA. Nice bathrooms, decent size level sites. The kids were fans of Wild West Town which is directly next door. There is a charge for daily entry but it was something different for the kids to enjoy.

Clean, and very well kept.

Very nice campground. It's on the smaller side and the RV sites are a little close together but they have it set up where your RVs doors open on opposite sides so it gives a little privacy. We would definitely camp here again. Our boys loved it!

Maiden voyage-nothing fancy

quiet, nice activities for kids, nice pass through camp site-however, very close sites and for sure not “scenic“. Some friendly regulars and some weekend visitors. We went there for our first experience with our new rv. Clean bathrooms. We also travel with our daughter with special needs, and the spaces were pretty accessible, a step or two to climb over with the stroller. Lots of families. It’s kinda in the middle of no where so we probably won’t be back. But if you like antiques or fun local places, head to The Milk House in Pingree and hit up the antique shops on your way. The one with all the junk is great if you like to dig but a bit overpriced. #OurBoxcarAdventures5

Close to Chicago

Typical KOA. Spots are close together but also close to Chicago. Next door to the Wild West Town, which is great for kids. Also close to Illinois railway museum. Locked gate, but keycards are available if you go out.

Chicago Northwest Koa

That it is a very clean camp ground.My granddaughter loves it..There are a lot of activity for kids on the weekends .People are nice to you. Plus they have a quiet time at night.So people and kids can go to bed without a bunch of noise.

Renovations and upgrades

This campground has really grown on me a lot. My family and i have seen the newer owners clean it up, remodel sites, add new equipment for children and added more activities too! It’s really a fun time here OH and the bathrooms are really clean!

Nice stay at the koa

When we are traveling and don't have a plan we always know we will have a good experience at the KOA. This was no exception it was clean and had lots of activities for the kids to do. The attendant was very nice and informative

First to Review

When I visited this place it was such a disaster. The trash was overflowing, the bathrooms were a mess, and there was no TP, and the quiet hours was not enforced, so people were up partying all night. I will look for another place to stay next time
