Great Camping!

We stayed at the Prairie View section on site P27. It was me, my wife, our 8 month old daughter, and our dog. One thing I always look up before booking a campsite is how secluded we are since our dog gets very anxious and will bark at almost anyone that gets “too close” in her eyes. This site…

Quiet, spacious and clean

Nice quiet campground in a huge, green and spacious park. Enjoy the numerous birds and fireflies and the peace and quiet of very private sites. Swim or fish in the lake, archery or huge picnic sites.

Mostly Seasonal Sites

This is a family owned park with primarily seasonal spots. Everyone has had free reign to decorate or add stuff at will. Some are nice sites and some are a dilapidated mess. There are shorter term sites at the top of the hill in the back of the park. These sites are fairly close together and in…

Great Experience

Beautiful views overlooking Turtle Lake. Friendly and helpful staff. My husband got stung twice when we went to plug-in our electric. But the staff came out immediately to spray and remove the nest. Will come back again , hopefully no rain next time!

Lovely camping experience

We took our 2 Newfoundlands camping on a long weekend. Just needed to take a break from our everyday life. Couldn't be happier from gate welcoming person to everyone else we met during our long stay. Pups were happy with cooler weather we were having. 

We will definitely be back!!!

Excellent Campground

This is a classic state park campground. It has drinking water, indoor bathrooms, and showers. The showers were chilly, but I could tell it was trying to warm up (maybe a water hookup thing). 

The folks at the front were very kind and helpful. My friend and I biked from Chicago on Memorial Day…

Great quiet place

Stayed for 3 nights over 4th of July. Got spot 38. Was a good spot with access to the trails. Quiet and set back. The platform for tents didn't fit our 6 man tent but the 2 man fit perfect. Bathrooms were not to far. Beautiful trees. Not to buggy.

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!

Enjoyable Experience

This State Park isn't too far off the beaten path which is nice. Fairly close to gas stations, convenience stores, etc. The park is clean, and has the bathrooms and utilities that would be needed. A few different lakes for fishing, swimming, boating, etc. The fox river runs through the park as…
