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.

pretty and spacious, great for family gatherings

 First off, we didn't realize this was a walk-in campground, the details on the Will county site were vague, and the satellite photo showed a paved road.  The road is a path, so the sites are ADA accessible (two of the four sites are paved as well). 
We have a small, motorcycle trailer so we…

  • site #2 seen from the path, site #1 is to the right, in the trees
  • algae and duckweed on the water, at least it didn't smell
  • site # 4, site #3 is also ADA and across path on right

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…

Did tent camping here..

Not worth the money. All R v sites are to close. If it rains your in a mud hole. Water smell and next to the high way.

Piled on top of each other

Because of being right on top of other campers. Also, almost everything is gravel.

Great smaller campground

The front of this park is the typical KOA. Trailer spots, pool, general store. Showers and bathroom are VERY clean and the staff is on top of things. There’s even a small creek that runs through the property giving it more appeal.

This place really shines in the primitive spots in the back of…

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…

Nice and quiet

Its nice and quiet. When you park at the lot head towards Utica. The first spot was about a half mile in. If you head further down there is a nice spot with a shelter and fire place. They are working on the bridge before Utica so you can not walk into town. No restrooms but there is a water…

Clean, but no amenities

We just purchased our first Winnebago and needed a spot close to home for a quick trial run. We have three small boys and they were very excited to camp. This is a great place if you need to stay for a night or two. It has full hookups, a dump station, showers, and propane. There is not a lot…
