One step above WALMART

This campground hosts many permanent or monthly campers, as evidenced by semi permanent structures, fences etc. There is a small lake that offers swimming and fishing, but we did not use this area. It is a huge area, with 4 shower and bathroom facilities, but they were old and needed…

Large Sites and a lot to do!

We stayed here for 2 weeks. The lots are huge compared to other campgrounds we have been to. They have a nice gravel spot for you to park your RV or other vehicle on. We have a 25' camper and a F250 and we weren't able to park the truck straight in front of the camper or we would be sticking out in…

  • Really large sites!
  • Beautiful Lake Michigan
  • This is what their fire pit looks like. It has a grate that you can cook on!

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.

Lot of sites

Nice camp site are nice size. Over a 1/3 of the site are walk in, started on 2021. This make it hard to make a reservation for the weekend, most reserved site are book for one night.

Good Company but Overpriced

Took our new to us Pop Up Camper to this resort during Labor Day weekend on her maiden voyage. Was surrounded by awesome people in their big rigs but not once made us feel inferior or less than for not having an RV at an RV resort. Pros:

  • Activities provided by the campsite
  • lots of room and not…

Nonexistent camping

I followed the coordinates provided and they led me to a person's driveway, but then I found the actual silver springs state park, and could not find a camping area anywhere around there. It may exist, but not in this version of the universe. There were strict "no pets off leash" signs, and "no…

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…

Friendly staff & nice trails

Staff was very friendly. Easy access to nice hiking trails. Bathrooms and showers decent. No concessions, but there is a place in the office to get Pepsi products. Would definitely stay here again if outside of Chicago area!

Great Simple Tent Camping

We love a nice, quiet place to camp and were delighted when in August only half of the Sunset campground was full and those in it were quiet. Our spot, #320 had great tree coverage for privacy and while most of the spots did there were some on the inner circle that didn't have as much. The State…

Stay for the night only

Very difficult to contact staff to book reservation. When we got there they told us they double booked us and requested we move after we got set up. We declined as there were other spots open and we were staying for under 24 hours. Concessions were scarce. No water or dumping hook up. Electric…
