Campground Reviews

May 30, 2013
We stayed at this Campground about 15 years ago. Glad we went back to a pop-up and choose this campground again. It is a very nice place. Close enough yet far enough for us. It is nice to have it next to a nice attraction the WW Town. BUT even nicer with all the activities. The staff and Manager were a PLEASURE to deal with! Keep up the great work!

It was really cold and then rainy but there was so much going on that my sister and I had a geat time no matter the weather.

This was our second stay at the camp ground (first time under the new owners)and had a much better experience. I'm pretty sure we had the best campsite on the grounds (#25). The memorial day activities that we were able to participate in were well run and entertaining. Did not like the young staff peddling wood from the golf cart all day. If I want wood I'll walk to the office.

Nice, hot showers! :) Minimal activities for kids. Walking distance from Wild West Town.

We were accommodated by having our request honored and all families were put on adjoining lots. Made our meals together much easier. Thank you. Thought the lots were small, however, and not too much privacy. Not a problem when camping with friends, but could be if camping alone. Bathrooms were clean. Water would not shut off in a couple of showers.

Our stay was great! Everyone was very friendly! Only problem was our outlets were not working for us to plug our extension cord in.

Helpaful staff, showed me to my site and offered to help me set up.

+Even tho the weather was less than co-operative for the Memorial Day weekend, there were still plenty of activities for the kids. Wimming will have to wait until our next stay.

The hosts are terrific. The hosts went out of their way to get my value card rewards even though I fogot my card. Nice quiet campground, handy for old west town. Store needs more variety, big boxes of cereal, no microwave popcorn is unusual. Crafts for kids needs to be mid morning to late afternoon, not at lunchtime. Just not a lot to do in the immediate area. Everything good about a KOA is there

very nice,clean, very friendly.

We were there for one night. The staff was very helpful. The person who checked us in seems to have to be in control of everything. She was stern with others and inflexible. With that said, the rest of our stay was perfect and if you can avoid the control freak, you'll have a great time!

The activities were a little lacking, but the facilities were nice and the staff members were friendly and helpful. It was a good value.
May 28, 2013
We had a such a great time! Friendly hosts/staff, super clean bathrooms, showers were clean (LOVED the drop down shelf seat!), organized events were fun! Loved that you offered discounted Wild West tickets! (I only knew though because I overhead another family ask for their tickets.) We will be back!

The activities and playground were great for the kids. Close enough to Chicagoland that you don't spend all day driving to get there but far enough away that you feel you are really getting away. The cabins were great and close to the tents. The pool was in great condition but not heated which was a little cold in May.the park staff was very friendly and everything was well maintained and clean

Great and friendly team member. Good attraction for kids. Good instalations.
May 28, 2013
Confused over reservation policy which said the site was fully booked but there were many spaces. Despite being very busy the site was remarkably quiet
May 28, 2013
Very nice campground,owners are very friendly and helpful!

We had a great time. The entire staff was very helpful and nice. Our only problem was our 15 year old doxie had a bad reaction to her meds and we had to pull out a day early. She has Cushings disease. My wife got extremely worried about her and wanted to take her home. This will probably be her last year with us so we take her whenever we can. We just never know how long our stays will be.

We love it!

Despite unseasonably cold & windy weather, we still enjoyed ourselves. Thanks to all the employees & the owners for the hospitality. see ya soon.

Very friendly staff, clean, good power, but internet access poor. Some turns very tight for big rigs.
May 14, 2013
The ticks were very bad. I never went into the dog walk area because I was warned by another camper about the ticks. However, I did walk my dog in a grass area and I found several ticks on me (which I found after entering my RV). Nice KOA other then the ticks. I nevered herd anything about the ticks from ant KOA staff.
May 13, 2013
The weather was cold but the campground is a nice place with many upgrades and the neighbors were warm & friendly. Overall, it was a very nice weekend.
May 13, 2013
The stay was OK, the sites are far from level and the camp store was a joke. The RV sites were full, but they said they don't stock store until later in season. Also - too many large dogs.
May 13, 2013
Very clean, helpful and friendly.
May 13, 2013
I enjoyed the cabins and the cooking grills very much. It was cold and rainy for most of our stay but it was still nice.
