Peaceful

Very relaxing, and very quiet. Great shade from tall trees, and a large pond to Fisher paddle boat. Been there twice and will be going back.

Great place to camp and see Chicago

We stayed here code a week while my husband had to fly out for work. It was safe, and everyone was so friendly and kind. The neighbors welcomed us and by the time we had to leave we felt like we were part of the community. There is easy access to public transportation. It was HOT and there are no…

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…

Perfect for cyclists along the canal trail

This campground is right in town. It is a bit away from businesses. However if you arrive by car you drive through the quaint town. 

Arriving by bicycle is even better. The Illinois and Michigan Canal Trail passes right by camp. You can stop for a rest or stay the night. It's a nice stopping…

Quiet spacious camp ground

We are here on Memorial Day weekend and it is full, but still very quiet. The sites are well maintained including the fire pit areas. Water hookup is back from pad so as others have said, bring the longer water hose. Nearby Siegler Lake and Big Rock Creek in the Big Rock Forest Preserve are…

A place to make memories

My mother-in-law was a member here for years. My family would frequently visit her camper during the summers. Always a great time! My company even hosted employee appreciation events here a few times. The list of amenities is remarkable, but membership is required. The beach and lake were…

Walk-in camping within sight of homes but along a great bike path

I'm betting that this was a beautiful place in its day. When we visited, it was an ok place to walk around but it could just be that it didn't start popping this early in the spring.

You definitely need to walk a bit from the parking lot. The sign says to follow the path but at the end of it…

  • Turn left at the end of the service path to find the camping area. It's a bit of a walk.
  • The park extends quite far and is a nice area to walk around.
  • I'm not sure what this is but you can contemplate it's design while camping nearby :)

Great spot not far from the city

Easy reservations and check-in. We used the primitive spots and were a short walk from the bathrooms. Lots of hiking and mountain biking trails in the area.

Camping with the doggos

Bathroom facilities were good. Reasonably clean and well maintained. The hike to the beach was fun and not far at all. The dogs loved it. Camp sites are decent sized.

Interesting State Park

Arrival was interesting. We followed the signs to the campground (CG) area and bypassed the park office for the gate, as there was no where to park towing a rig. At the gate we found out we should have just pulled over on the road and registered before getting to the gate. We did not see any signs…

My 1st time camping!! Not bad at all

The scenery is beautiful and participating in the 3 dunes challenge was exciting abs definitely got the blood pumping. The campgrounds were pleasant and had nice bathroom and showers.

Great Location for DayTrips and Group Overnights the Western Suburbs

Note - as other reviewers mentioned, overnight camping is limited to Youth Groups only (eg Scouts). *But the larger Churchill Woods forest preserve is open daily and is an excellent location for hiking and fishing - right on St. Charles Road - just west of I-355.

For being a state park and relatively inexpensive, you’ll be delighted. I was very surprised and happy to see a beautiful beach area at this state park. It’s a wonderful place to go to during the summer and the kids will have a blast. Also,there are sand dunes around the area. Definitely bring…
