Family camping

Nice quiet place to get away to. Sights are large. Good size lake for fishing or Kayaking. Large beach area for kids. Graded shallow so they can go a good distance into the water. Scuppernong trail is less than 5 minutes down hwyZZ.

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!

Fun for a night.

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…

Enjoying Ottawa Lake Campground

We've camped here before and like it. The sites are spacious and most seem to have shade for at least part of the day. Each site has a picnic table and fire pit. Ours had a grill the folded in and out, not sure if all have it. The beach is great, open and lots of room to set up for the day either…

Relaxation at its best

The volunteer who was there to sign us in was wonderful. She was very helpful and very friendly. They had 2 shower houses and I have to say they were not in the greatest shape. One was newer but both of them were pretty dirty and not that appealing. There were lots of camp sites and most of them…

White Oak Campground

Overall a lovely park with a variety to go do. We rented a kayak and canoe for reasonable rates. Our dog was able to enjoy the canoe ride. White Oak has wooded campsites that are semi-private with some more open than others. There are decent pit toilets scattered throughout the campground. There is…

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…

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…

New

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.

Large campground with a cozy feeling

This large campground was filled up with an upcoming triathlon. Even with all these campers there is still plenty of greenery between sites to give us privacy. We didn’t feel as if we were part of such a large place - such a great experience to have a small vibe amongst many campers.

Small Scale Lake but Lots of Fun

This park is a bit smaller in scale but has flat roads for biking and hiking.   Our site bordered the road and was noisy, suggest you look for a  site in the  middle of the campground where it was much quieter.   Saw some interesting birds and enjoyed the picnic area at the lake

NIce Forest Location in Northern Illinois

Spent 3 days here as part of a trip to Galena. The showers are nice and cleaned regularly. Host is constantly driving around making sure firewood is available to campers and is very reasonably priced. Great location right along river, however it was very low this time of year. Will defiantly return.

  • Nice spacious site.

We really like this place and was about a 30 minute rude from our place in the western burbs. Some of the areas best mountain bike single track is right here. There is fishing kayaking and hiking trails too. Friendly staff and clean bathrooms. It did get a little noisy at night but that sometimes…
