Had a great stay. The staff was nice and my family had a wonderful time. They have a new playground and jumpy thing for kids. Negative: cabin door wouldn't close all the way or lock which was frustrating since I had to move valuables back and forth from car when needed. Staff said it was due to wood warping "which happens" they said.

Great place for a weekend getaway with the family and a short drive from Chicago. A lot of activities for kids.

I was impressed with how clean the campground was and with the many beautiful flowers. I also noticed the helpful and pleasant employees, with many smiles. My only complaint is the lack of shade by the cabins , and it was hot inside the cabin. The a.c. was not big enough to keep up.

Without this, my weekend would be far from complete. Was extremely peaceful while I was there and honestly, unexpected. Thank you to everyone at the Northwest Chicago KOA. Because of this KOA, i will be staying at KOA's like all the time!

This was my first time here, and I will absolutely be back! The stay was very relaxing, and Bill was beyond helpful in helping us out as first time campers!

I love the cabins and the facilities but the playground and mini golf could use an upgrade. The check out time at 11 was too early. Trick or treat and hayride was fun.

Once again we had a wonderful stay at the Union KOA! The entire staff is friendly and goes out of their way to make your stay perfect.

We stayed in cabin 41. It was nice and clean, but was not happy that the campground did not enforce the 11p.m. quiet hours. The tenters across the way were very loud past 11 and then they kept their dog outside the tent til close til 3am and he was whining and crying the whole time.

We have been coming to the KOA for a girls trip for years. We always enjoy our time there. We enjoy the improvements that are constantly being made. The only negative for us is the many rules that are in place. That being said, we realize those same rules help keep us safe. However, some of the rules could be loosened a little. They seem to get stricter and stricter every year.

Good Value for visiting Chicago. Staff matter of fact, Business like, no warmth. Strange: for our coffee, you have to go round the back of the building to the laundry. Don't want too much of Campers'company in their Office it appears

It was beautiful. We stayed in one of the cabins. Just big enough for the three of us. The camp ground was just overall relaxing and scenery was excellent. We will defiantly be back if we are ever in the area again! Staff was friendly and brought wood/ice to our campsites for us. Never had quite an experience like this before at a KOA.

Very nice

I was so pleased with the customer service level from the first person I talked with inquiring about a reservation to everyone in a yellow shirt that we passed at the campground. We had a quick getaway that was peaceful and perfect. Thank you, we will be back for sure.

Staff was very accommodating as we were arriving late. I was very impressed with the bath house that we used. We didn't get to do much on the campground but sleep, but everything that we used it for was great.

Stayed in a cabin, nice and clean, great value. Bathroom was clean, free showers. Pool is nice and refreshing, a little rough around the edges, but im sure its next on the list to be upgraded.

Stayed in a rustic cabin. Front desk staff was very nice. Cabin was nice with AC. Showers were a bit dirty. Not a bad place.

Clean, friendly and several activities for children. Playground area dangerous and pool needs to be heated. Needs some improvements but we had a great time and will return.

Weekend of July 8th - it was a rowdy weekend and very crowded/packed. Quiet time was mostly ignored and people were up talking loudly until 12:30. Owners/Managers did their best to quiet everyone but screaming kids and loud partiers at 11:30PM didn't make our Saturday night evening peaceful at all. Fortunately everyone left on Sunday so our Sunday night was quiet and wonderful.

We were welcomed in a very friendly manner. Loved that it was peaceful and family oriented with plenty of activities to participate in. Also not too far of a drive to Chicago city. Definitely would return whenever I would be in the area.

This was our first stay at Chicago KOA campground and it was a great experience. Close to the city, quiet, clean, a kids pool on site, a lot of activities for kids and great overall service. We will visit again and recommend to other friends.
