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.

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!

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…

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…

Nearly perfect campground

Gorgeous park in a somewhat remote, i.e., quiet area. The sites are large, level and well-dispersed; there’s plenty of shade; the electrical connections are well-placed. Unfortunately, the water connection in our site (61) was a bit of a stretch. Contact via phone was a bit challenging; it took…

Clean, quiet, close

This is a nice campground. Very clean and the sites are well maintained with water and electric at each. The campground is not far from stores in case you need to pick anything up or forgot something. Cell signal is great (Verizon). We really enjoyed our stay for the weekend and will be back.

Nice weekend getaway close to home

My family loves coming here! The scenery is beautiful, you can fish, hike, or just relax. You're in the Chicago suburbs so it's easy to get to a store or restaurant if you need. It's close to home for us, so it's perfect for a quick camping trip. Only drawback is that it's a little pricey, but the…

South location!

If you plug Illinois beach state park into your navigation it will send you to the north entrance. No camping is available there. The campground is the south entrance which is a few miles away. The campground itself was just ok. Nothing spectacular, although bthe sunrise on lake Michigan is superb.
