Campground Reviews

The bathrooms were the best out of any camp ground we have stayed at. It was very quiet which were not use too. The place was packed and you couldn't tell except for the pool. You need to do something with the pool we had 14 and 17 year olds that love to swim (that didn't happen)!!!! Everything else was great but the pool needs to get updated.

Our first time out using our new RV. Couldn't be happier with the cleanliness, friendliness and great surroundings of the Kampground and the people working there. Can't wait to come back.

The only bad items:bathrooms are mediocre. You can't get any discount unless you mention it when checking in (not an hour or more later).

Very friendly staff; overall nice park

Beautiful, lots to do. Great surrounding small towns with lots of history. But 65 miles from Chicago does not qualify as "Chicago NW". Too far to make Chicago a "day trip"

We had a great time. Clean and quiet camping. Our one issue with braking dogs was resolved immediately.

Great place, great service, even greater people working there. We actually call it "our camp":-) When we are deciding where we will go for the weekend it's like " r we gonna go some place else or to our camp???:-))) Well most of the time we go to our camp and we love it;-)

I could recommend to have more toilets (currently there is only 2 toilets)in the mens room at the main office area. You could replace one of the shower with a toilet. Thanks

This was our first trip in a new camper. As we entered the staff asked what we needed and we explained it was are first time. Darrell followed us to our site, assisted with placement and checked on us later to ensure we were OK. All the staff was super helpful and friendly and made us first timers feel more than welcome. The grounds and service buildings were kept clean and tidy during our whole v

We have camped at this location for over 10 years . New owners are doing a great job! Bathrooms were maintained and clean , however shower water was so hot we could not use them ! Owner is friendly and staff is welcoming. Fun activities for the kids , pool was clean , but needs new stairs for safer entry and exit. Will definitely visit again !

Very nice and adaptable people. Had some shade in sites, which was nice. Nice to have the mini golf, and enjoyed the pool.

Friendly staff, very clean facilities. The lots are narrow so we didn't get to use our screen room but we weren't at the site much anyway. (EXTREMELY nice staff. The property is very well taken care of. (sorry about the random nature of my ramblings) I only omitted one star because of the narrow lots.

We thought it would be closer to Chicago. The ride to Crystal Lake took .7 hours. The park itself had great staff. More spots could use sewage.

Sites were too close together. Water was horrible! Even with a filter we still got the metallic smell and a yellow color.

Good: Staff very friendly, great kid-friendly activities, gate-access provides some security, prices in the camp store are very reasonable, bathrooms cleaned 3-4 times daily. Not so good: Traffic (quite a few trucks) on adjacent road can be noisy at nighttime. Late quiet time (11pm) means neighbors can be noisy until past children's bedtime.

Nicely/efficiently run, very tiddy facility. The two semi-negatives are 1) The office/checking is on the opposite side of the building from where you drive in (and up a level) and 2) the crushed rock in the driveways are messy - track into the motorhome badly.

This was a nice clean facility. The staff is very friendly. The only problem I feel the spaces are a little too close together.

We stayed overnight on our way to The Mall of America. The reservations were handled in a friendly and professional manner. The service once we arrived (which was later than most campground's offices are still open) was great! The staff here deserves some recognition, they are great!
