Good camping option close to the city

Excellent campground …with lake and fairly new installations. Clean ..spots are not to close. Pricy. One negative point the gate close at 10pm.

Great weekend spot

Blackwell campground is very nice - surprisingly well-maintained with unique sites, many of which are large and private.  Some have large lawn areas as well as nice wood-chip pads, while others are mostly gravel.  All look very level.  Bathrooms and shower house are clean and also well maintained…

Hidden gem

Well thought out campground in the middle of the suburbs. You can actually forget that you are in the middle of a very urban area. If your looking to camp near Chicago, this is the spot! Only complaint is you get locked in an hour after sunset, but still worth coming here.

Friendly staff & nice trails

Staff was very friendly. Easy access to nice hiking trails. Bathrooms and showers decent. No concessions, but there is a place in the office to get Pepsi products. Would definitely stay here again if outside of Chicago area!

Rude Customer Service

The woman who answered the phone was very rude and refused to answer simple questions for us. Originally told us there were spots available then turned us away when we asked questions because we were not “self-sufficient” enough for their camp. Do not camp here!!

Stay for the night only

Very difficult to contact staff to book reservation. When we got there they told us they double booked us and requested we move after we got set up. We declined as there were other spots open and we were staying for under 24 hours. Concessions were scarce. No water or dumping hook up. Electric…

Nice weekend getaway close to home

My family loves coming here! The scenery is beautiful, you can fish, hike, or just relax. You're in the Chicago suburbs so it's easy to get to a store or restaurant if you need. It's close to home for us, so it's perfect for a quick camping trip. Only drawback is that it's a little pricey, but the…

Clean, open, beautiful

This is a wonderful campground with everything accessible for a few days respite. Clean showers, space to walk, gorgeous lake - quiet just outside of the city!

The staff were delightful! - except when I phoned. I was told the campground was fully booked. Many hours and a phone glitch later, we…
