“A good option if visiting the Chicago area”

Reviewed Aug 19, 2016

Overall Rating

In addition to the small (5 site) RV loop, there are also 13 tent sites available. This campground is located in the NW suburbs of Chicago and is about a 1 hour drive (depending on traffic) to downtown. With very limited options in the Chicago area, this is a decent option for a short stay.
The sites are good sized, level and could accommodate larger rigs. Some are gravel, some are paved and all have the unusual combination of electric and sewer hookups (no water @ each site). There are spigots scattered in the tent area and the office has up to 150 feet of water hose (I was told) which can be used to fill up from the spigot near the bathhouse. There are no spigots in the RV loop. One sketchy feature is that the sites have the sewer and electrical post on different sides of the pad. You will need a good 20 to 25 feet of cord to hook up electric if you back in. Site #1 has both hookups on the proper side. Each site has a table and fire pit. The campground is located on a busy road, so traffic noise is definitely a factor here, especially during weekday morning rush hour..
The facilities are nice and new. The bathhouse has one toilet, one sink and four shower stalls. I suppose this could be an issue if the tent area is full as I could see a line waiting for the sink and/or toilet (there were no tenters here on the 3 weekdays we were there). The campground closes its gate at 10 pm each night. If you need to enter after that (we did) you have to call and let them know you are at the gate and they then let you in. Apparently, someone is on site (not a host, per se) at all hours. We have US Cellular cell service which was available at the campground. No wifi here.
