Nice site.
May 25, 2016
People were pleasant and helpful. Park was clean and well maintained. The only need, as I see it is the entrance driveway needs to be enlarged. Met a trash truck coming in. I couldn't back up because I would be backing into oncoming traffic. Had to track off the drive way pavement to get around.

We we're In between moving to a new house so camping was a perfect solution. The owners were very accommodating and great to work with. The park is immaculate and all staff very friendly.

Stayed in a 40 ft 5th wheel pull thru site. Easy in/out. Nice clean campground, very quite. Had a great time and will be back

We really enjoyed our stay, liked being able to do our laundry on site. The grounds were very nice rolling hills and all. Will be back. The staff was very friendly.

Great KOA, Nice sites, beautiful area, Loved the showers, very strong! Only downside, they gave me the wrong site, I ordered one with Electric/Water got one with only water? should get a refund of a couple of dollars?

This place is cute and the staff is very friendly, but I won't be returning. Was overcharged and was woken up to the sound of lawn mowers when they were already mowing for several hours the afternoon before.

This was a very nice and clean well kept facility. We appreciated the many cut paths to walk the dog. My only criticism is that the sites are too tight as I had a bit of difficulty getting out of my pull through. A new tree at the corner of the site is not a good idea.

Very close to the city. Nice amenities nearby.

We were treated very well, even tho we were not there much because of a wedding.

This is our first KOA we have stayed in. Based on our stay we are reserving KOAs to/from Yellowstone this summer!

The campground is well maintained. There are nice open fields to walk dogs, as well as a fenced dog area. However, there is no cable TV. Also, their price for a propane refill is about twice what we have paid anywhere else in the country.

Enjoyed a weekend away from home even though it was rainy and cool. Got us excited for the upcoming camping season.
May 16, 2016
We always liked to walk to the restaurant next door. Sorry to see it was closed. We would like to have had a cable TV hook up.

Great campground and special hosts

Campground is really nice, my only complaint is they need to mow closer to the weekend because our grass was really long. Would definately come back!!

Awesome staff and owners. Extremely personable and helpful. The park is a quiet getaway in the country. Flowers, rustic log swings and a great dog park and trails. We will be back.

Staff friendly, but this is the first campground I've ever had to pay an extra $5 just for visitors to pick us up for lunch (they were on site for less than 30 minutes!). NARROW roads made it difficult to navigate our coach+trailer. Rain flooded outside our entry door and made our exit MUDDY. Rest rooms all locked, ostensibly too early in the season (water at site, but not in restrooms? Hmmmm..

Extremely nice and clean bathrooms/showers.

Local campground for us but a perfect get away spot. Staff is very friendly. Walk to Wild West town and a short drive to A Train Museum. Still early in season so not everything was open yet.

We stayed the second weekend of the season. Staff was very friendly and nice. Some great pull thru premium sites. Other pull thrus are a little close together. Love the wooden swing on the premium site we had. Water pressure not so good and wi-fi was spotty. Great campground for a weekend visit!

We have stayed at the Chicago Northwest, IL KOA many times. It seems as if each time we go there are constant improvements to the grounds and amenities. Thomas and Sylvia are doing a fantastic job.

Great campground to stay and close to Chicago.
Apr 18, 2016
Nice campground and excellent, very clean facilities (early season). Limited showers due to one shower block not being operational and the remain showers were in restroom where sewer was blocked so unavailable Sunday morning. Staff very friendly. Pull through sites a bit small but fine for couple of nights. Sewer hookup was UPHILL from our pad which was a little problematic. Will be back.

Couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay and the people were very very nice
Apr 18, 2016
The campground employees were very, very accommodating. Check in was easy. The campground is small so the lots are pretty close together. We camped with friends so it worked out well for us. I will definitely camped at this KOA again BUT I will request not to camp next to anyone with a dog. There are some great sites on the prairie side which we will request when we reserve out lot.

i Visited Chicago Northwest KOA in September for a 10 day stay, and I must say I was impressed with the Park and exspceialy the staff the grounds and the washrooms are well taken care of and there is plenty to do and see in the area not to mention Chicago is nearby, I will defently stay here again when in the area,

This place should never have been located near farmland. There were flies everywhere! In addition I had to listen to 3 incessantly barking dogs the whole time we were there. Koa should limit dogs to 1 per family.

Pleasant people, helpful, & courtesy
