Season spot maybe?

I came for a 4th of July weekend tent camping one year. In my humble opinion I experienced a party type atmosphere with a bunch of season rv type campers. Tight group of people who spend the summers there. If you have a golf cart it seemed popular. Just not our cup of tea but, if it's yours it…

The willow slough (the slough)

The slough. We like it! I'm being bias due to how close it is to the house. It's $12 a night. Pretty clean campground run by the DNR, lots of acreage to explore. No real trails but if you don't mind roughing it plenty to explore, hunting, fishing, mushrooms, electric motor only boats on the…

Memorial day trip

I am glad I didnt listen to the negative comments I read! This is a quiet and beautiful campground, we were treated very kindly! No complaints except wish there was more to do while we were here. I understand that new owners have taken over in April of this year. They are working on many things! We…

Great campground, will return

This is a beautifully kept campground just outside Michigan City, IN. It is gated so will need to call in once you arrive to enter. We stayed  in the premium sites which were 90ft pull thought with 50A service, water and sewer, and the best wifi I have seen at a campsite. The cement patio was large…

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…

Beautiful Indians Dunes National Park

We spent one night at Indians Dunes National Park and we love this campground. Lots of room for our 15’ Ford F-150 and 19’4” travel trailer. Our campsite was Dunewood Campground, Mather loop, site #1.

Wonderful area.

This was a great little campground, very laid back, we came memorial day weekend. It was quiet, relaxing, and very well maintained. 1 trash area, 4 porta Potties for use for the campground. You can rent kayaks for the day, fish, wade in the river (no swimming). You get to see tugboats and barges…

Good place to stop after getting past (or before) Chicago and Gary

A fine campground, but you can hear the highway and commuter trains pass by regularly. Private property abuts the campground. Good in a pinch, but the nearby state park campground might be a better option. Also, reservations are required (we pulled in at 10:45, not knowing and managed to grab a…

Great to be back! Land is beautiful

We had four sites on Osage loop for tent camping.  Two were very small (14&15), and little grass for tent setup, fine for RV or trailer campers.  They were private with brush between sites.  16&17 were amazing for tents!!  Open, tall trees for our tight rope and hammocks and shade. Grass…

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 :)

Site 67 Douglas Loop

Site 67 is one of the walk in sites, but it was very private. Only one other site was visible, so we set up our tents between us and felt like the only people there. It was great. The walk in distance wasn't bad at all. The bathroom facilities were very clean. The sky was beautiful, and the…

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.
