Lived here my whole life

The channels are always swell. People always respectful with their boats. Very beautiful place to live.

Hickory Hills - New owners

Have loved this campground for years. That said, it is under new ownership and if you need anything during your stay, steer clear of the blonde woman. She has no time for you. Other than that, when isn't camping great!?

Small treasure in Illinois, near Illinois RR Museum

 We came across this one day during a day hike in the Marengo Ridge Forest preserve in McHenry county. It's about 90 mins NW of Chicago. The trails are both wooded and hilly, but there's also a large prairie nature walk. 
The campground has many secluded walk-in tent sites and a variety of sites…

  • we had to push our little trailer up the hill, but the site was very pleasant and secluded

Awesome place! Management a bit off

This campground is 10 minutes from my house and we’ve stayed here years ago. Good things: awesome renovations! So many cool activities definitely kid orientated! The sites close to the store are so nice! wooded and somewhat private. Love that they have a sparkling clean (but cold!) pool and a lake…

Great clean place lots to do

Crazy horse is a very clean and well maintained campground with a lot of things to do like river tubing, kayaking, and canoeing.

Also they gave a slot of amenities for the kids like mini golf , jump pad, play grounds and a pool.

Great campground just outside of Chicago!

Did a quick stay with the kids for a Friday and Saturday night. A little bit smaller of a campground with regards to site space, but that's about the only thing 'bad' to say, and it's not really a bad thing at all.

Staff was very friendly and the facilities were kept very clean.

Plenty for…

Ammenitites aplenty

I reserved site B38 for me and my small dog, Bob. It’s a tent only site in the main camping area, only $16 per night after fees. Each site has a fire pit and I think all include a grill surface on the pit. Lots of good trees around for hammocking, especially at B38. Short walk to the shower and…

Great family owned campground

Clean bathrooms and showers, well maintained sites with water and electric. A bit cramped for tent camping as sites are small and no space between neighbors.

However 2 pools, activities, green river at back of campground for fishing, tubing, and trail hiking.

Had Electric and Water hookup. Very roomy and level sites. It's about 9 years old, so no trees. No swimming or fishing. Only hiking trails.

Awesome Water Obstacle Course

The water obstacle course was so much fun! Kids and adults both had a fantastic time with it. We live close enough we'd be able to go for the day and probably will. The beach was clean sand, not real big but we never felt crowded. There were quite a few activities.

Our site was nicely wooded and…

Fun Times!

Clean campground with lots of things for the kids to do.  Clean shower house with good water pressure! Prices have gone up this year but that’s true if most campgrounds.

  • Nothing like a campfire!
  • Large lot!

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…

Good experience

We weren’t sure if we were going to like it because we were camping without kids, and it seems like the kind of campground that people with kids would go to because of all the fun activities. But noise was not an issue. Bathrooms were clean. Everything was good.
