Campground Reviews

Aug 09, 2014
We had a great time! The pool was the perfect size for our younger children, and the older kids from another campsite seemed to enjoy just as much. We didn't even get a chance to try out all the other activities. Kids slept the whole way home.

Site was great, people were great, getting in and out was easy! Location was great too, but we didn't have time to do any sight-seeing.

Family had a great time. Used a cabin this year and we all really loved it. See ya next year.

This KOA most cramped we have ever stayed at. Barely 15ft between sights. Hook ups were actually in the middle of the adjoining sites.

We will be back! Our cabin and the pool were both very clean, and the grounds were well kept. Just a short walk to Donley's Wild West Town, what a great weekend! The owners were very friendly and outgoing. Great time

We stayed here several times before the ownership changed and were extremely reassured that the basic quiet friendliness has stayed. They have even formalised the gap in the hedge to the Wild West place next door!

We had a great time, there weren't any tents around us, if there would have been I think it would have felt too close.

We had a great time. I am not sure if KOA was aware of the fireworks that were going to done at Wild West Town on Saturday night. If they had known it would have been nice to inform the campers. It was a beautiful show. Clean bathrooms and shower house. A few more chairs could be added to the pool area.

Great camp area, very clean washrooms.

The road construction and the tolls were a pain. Nothing your KOA can do about that. I did have a concern about the fireworks next door. Shells were falling around the campsite and some of the embers were lit all the way down. We were staying in the row of pop-ups. I checked for damage the next morning but found none, which was good.

Nice campground. Very clean and well organized, and very close to Illinois Railway Museum. Did not use swimming pool or other recreational activities due top time constraints. Office staff seemed a little bit overwhelmed, but eventually got everything straight for us.

We had a great stay. There were plenty of activities for our kids as well as the park and the pool. the only issue was that we were being to loud when we had all the surrounding sites and were next to the pool and office.

Site was not level as advertised. After setup, camper had a 2 foot drop from bottom stir to ground. Quite a bit of noise and fireworks from neighboring Western themed attraction. Seemed pricy, but that is KOA.

The roads are gravel so every time someone would drive by you were covered in gravel dust! the lots are too close together. The sewer hookup was up way to high in the lot we stayed in I had to use the dump station which was nice and clean. we also had barking dogs on both sides of us. The staff was very nice and the park was well kept.

We had been there before, and came back for several reasons, cleanliness,all of the staff were helpful and polite especially Rosie and Bob! They were always driving around to see if anyone needed help. Just a fun place

Not being able to hang a clothes line and my more then capable kids not being able to swim without an adult present- was not welcoming. Some staff pleasant and some definitely not. When we stayed with you guys it was after staying at more then 10 KOA's elsewhere and they were much kinder. Also, the card to get in and out was bizarre.

We enjoyed this KOA! My boyfriend and I tent camped. The plot was perfectly lovely, but it was a little close to a fairly major highway. Other KOAs offered free coffee in the morning.

Our stay at your campground was good. We did not spend a lot of time other than at night as we toured Chicago in the daytime but we had a good time at the campground and met a few people.

Camping propre et bien entretenu. Facilité d'accès à Chicago en se rendant à Crystal Lake pour prendre le train (quoi que voyages longs: 20 min. d'auto plus 90 min. de train aller, même chose au retour). Heures d'ouvertures limitées (magasin ferme à 8:00 pm). Pas trop grand camping donc tranquille. Personnel sympathique. Attractions limitées mais convenables pour les enfants.

very clean and well organize

Very well kept up campsite and pzrk, very clean and friendly staff. Only w recomendations would be ability to pick site when booking online and more room. But overall very nice stay.

Location-not near interstate-good! A bit far from Chicago, but ok. Friendly staff and we were happy for the pool. We loved placing our tent near the playground. Kids enjoyed both pool and 3 playsets on playground. Kind of wanted paper towels in bathroom.

Met our expectation.Came to your area for a wedding in Rockford. Your location was in a convenient location.There was a problem with a traffic jam, causing a late arrival to the park. That's not something you can control. You should pay some attention to the shower fixture in your public bath. It needs updating.

Pool was freezing, same activities every weekend. Poor customer service in most areas.Sites are to small. Fire pot wasn't cleaned for us the whole time we were there. Unhooked our straps to mow, didn't put back in. Didn't mow under our picnic table 2 weeks in a row. Allowing an at least 12 year old girl to be top less at pool, when I had 2 7 year old boys there...saying well they aren't from this

Thanks for providing a nice kabin. A quiet, restful area.
Jul 29, 2014
Nice, clean and quiet as always. Their wifi is horrid. I couldn't get a connection on my laptop for most of the weekend and when I did it was late at night. Cable would be nice as once again we had a hard time getting TV channels except for during the evening. We will go there as it is the closest KOA to home and is great for just getting away for a bit.

The kids had a great time! We will be back next year!
