No pull through Electric only Small clean park
Decided to just park in parking lot and leave tow on
Leaving early in the morning
Nice, peaceful campground, small beach area for kids to wade in water. Lots of green space.
The channels are always swell. People always respectful with their boats. Very beautiful place to live.
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…

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.
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.
Lovely campground north west of Chicago. The shower facilities were clean and the staff very friendly.
We arrived 9/13/21. We had site 17 reserved but Betsy at the camp check-in told us there were some other sites available and a bit more secluded, although it was not busy at all. We opted for the sites close to the boat launch, but regretted it as it was very dusty and dry. Campsite offered a fire…

Beautiful shady campground with large private sites. Sites 111 - 139 are more open with less privacy, but they have lake views and are near the concession stand and boat launch. Sites in the other loops are all very shaded and private. The shower houses were clean and large, in good repair. The…

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…
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…
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…
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!

The woman who answered the phone was very rude and refused to answer simple questions for us. Originally told us there were spots available then turned us away when we asked questions because we were not “self-sufficient” enough for their camp. Do not camp here!!
This is a great low cost, low frills state park. It’s pretty close to Chicago so it works for weekend getaways. We stayed in the wooded loop. It’s rustic without electric/water hookups. The other loop looked more set up for rvs.
We loved the shade of the wooded section. We had a spot that…
