“Great place to camp. ”

What a great place to camp. We had a wonderful experience. We choose sight 322 with 30 amp service. Easy walk or bike to Lake Michigan.

Entrance to the park is very easy. If you are coming from the South don not follow the GPS. Go further north and come back. The path we took was ok in an RV but there are better routes. I recommend IL 173 to 137 South.

Camp office and check in was very smooth. Everyone was friendly. They offered maps and park info.

“Great location with nice views and close beach!”

Overall Rating

We camped in an RV and loved this location. We stayed in the 300's first for the 50 amp, but it is mainly a parking lot. Positives are that you can hear the waves crashing nearby, restrooms/showers are close and sites are level. Cons - too busy in that area, not as scenic. Restrooms need TLC and could be cleaned more often. We moved to the 100's to have a better view. Had 30 amp which was still fine...Could not hear the waves as good, but we had a great shady spot with not as many neighbors. We saw deer in the woods!

We love the location, lots of things close by, including Chicago only 45 minutes away. Zion has a few restaurants and grocery stores. Piggly Wiggly and CVS are nearby and clean. Resort and conference center is within biking distance and has a bar and restaurant with great views. Site 110 was great. First come, first serve for the 100's. Cell service was actually better in the 100's. It was pretty slow near the back in the 300's.

Camp Hosts were friendly and helpful. Check in was easy. We would definitely stay here again.
