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…

Large private sites

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…

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!

Small, suburban campground

The campground sits on a terminal moraine about 100 ft above the Mukwonago River valley. About half of the campsites sit on level ground, the rest are located halfway up the hill. The sites are large, spaced out, and the campground is generally quiet. Electricity has been added this year. It's a…

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…

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…

Peaceful and quiet

I camped here in early may of 2021. It was well kept, peaceful and nearly empty. The hosts were great and the views were fantastic. It's hard to tell how this place is during peak, but I'd stay in a heat beat during off peak season.

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 has wooded campsites that are semi-private with some more open than others. There are decent pit toilets scattered throughout the campground. There is…
