Great RV resort for “glampers”

My wife and I have always wanted to buy an RV, but finally took the plunge this year since COVID-19 shut just about everything else down. We decided to keep it here on the recommendation of a friend who also stays here. At first, we were disappointed at the lack of amenities, but ultimately realized that once again, it was due to the pandemic. Things started to slowly open up around the 4th of July. Now, it’s our favorite place to go! The most impressive aspect in our opinion are the people. It is the nicest group of people I’ve ever been around. Everyone waves and speaks to you when they see you. When we first arrived, neighbors came from all over to help me set things up. At one point, I actually sat down because so many people were helping! Of course, we bought bottles of wine for everyone. The pros: friendly neighbors, well-maintained heated pool, full hook-ups at most sites, community center, lake, and arcade (was not open due to COVID), free included cable and WiFi (although the WiFi is spotty at best!), several playgrounds and jumpy balloon. Cons: owned/managed by Zeman, which makes it expensive, most of the year the campground had no manager, then one came, but he left a month later, not often, but sometimes music and loud noise can be heard well after quiet hours at 11pm, as I mentioned earlier, the WiFi is terrible, if you need it for work purposes, you will be disappointed,sites on the lake end of the grounds will flood if there has been a lot of rain. Overall, if you are an RVer and in the Rockford Illinois area, you MUST give Northwoods a try!
