Campground Reviews

It was a great stay, but not my kind of camping. I would recommend it to someone who wants to try out camping or wants a cheap couple days out with kids. But this experience lacks the escapism of camping and is very crowded (tents on top of tents). The overall effort put in by the KOA is top-notch. It's just not the kind of camping I enjoy.

Another great weekend at this KOA campground. Thanks to all of the friendly staff.

The campground is very clean, and the employees are very friendly. The kids enjoyed the pool and the bike rentals. It is a smal campground, so the kids (middle school age) were free to roam back and forth from the park to the camp site. The camp site itself was smaller than we are used to.

The stay was nice, but the toilet booths are kinda tight to enter.

The only issue we had during our stay was the water. It had a metallic smell to it and our tub ended up having a rust colour stain from the water.

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.
