it was ok nice for the kids they were friendly however we werent aware there was no TV's all the ones we ever stayed in had Tv's also we rented a cabin and it was a trailer. that should probably be listed so people are aware. this location has well water and it probably needs to be conditioned it smells really bad

This is our 2nd time staying at this KOA. We had a fantastic time. We rented the self contained trailer. It was supplied with everything. We only had to bring bedding and food. Trailer was in great shape. The bathroom/shower house was near by, it was freshly painted and very clean. Lots of things for the kids to do. We will definitely stay again.

Nice clean campground. Nice staff bathrooms were great. Only compliant is that I rented a camper for our stay and the shower was out of order. If I would have know probably would have saved myself some money and went with camping cabin. Other then that we had a great time and enjoyed ourselfs. Thanks for having us!

Likes: movie night, popcorn ice cream sale, night time candy hunt, good price for trailer rental, clean, next to Wild West Town. Dislikes: overpriced limited items in store, pool closed (off season) but is smaller, playground equipment could be improved/added, poor mini golf course but free, so appreciated, not enough showers for all.

We loved this campground. Super clean, friendly staff. Would have liked to use the pool past 9/5 since Summer is hanging on. May want to decide whether or not to extend the open dates depending on camping weather? Would have been a perfect swimming weekend if we could have. Aside from that, very nice.

Everyone was very friendly. Pat did a great job and always greeted us warmly. The showers were awesome! The camp store was very, very overpriced, and Bingo could be made more fun with small prizes from the store. It was silly that we paid 25 cents for each card and all $$ went to whomever won one game. Weak effort. Overall, the experience was okay.

This is our third year staying at the Chicago Northwest KOA. We stayed in a travel trailer rental unit, and everything was perfect (as usual). The public restrooms and shower stalls were very clean and convenient. The grounds are always very well kept. I've been in many campgrounds in my 37 years, and this one always impresses me. The owner was a pleasure to deal with, & staff is very friendly.

We rented the RV and it was very nice and had everything. The only thing that I have a complaint about is there was no hot water to the camper. Hard to wash dishes or ourselves with no hot water. Otherwise had a great weekend!

Our stay was amazing. Lots of activities for my 3 grandchildren. They were always busy. The staff was very helpful and accommodating. Looking forward to staying here again in the future. This was my daughter in laws first actual camping experience and it was great. She is hooked now.

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

We were very disappointed in the trailor we stayed in. We stayed for 3 nights and it literally smelled like poop each day. We were unable to enjoy the convenience of having a restroom because of the smell. No hot water in the bathrooms by the office. Each night we showered somewhere different to find hot water. We bought an air freshener for the trailor due to the smell. Hosts were nice though.

Restrooms were not cleaned often for the amount of people using them. It was quite disgusting at times.Otherwise it was a great place

We had a wonderful stay with KOA Northwest Chicago. We rented the travel trailer and it fit our needs with 4 adults and a toddler. Everyone from the time we pulled in till we left were very friendly. They had many activities planned for the kids. Especially loved the flashlight candy hunt. The restrooms and shower were very clean. Hope to stay at this location in the future.

We really enjoyed it. Unfortunately we were out during the day so didnt get to participate in Saturday activities. My husband did not like the bedding and complained he didnt sleep well.the bathrooms were wonderfully vlean and the entire campground was well-kept. Staff very friendly!

Some of the older staff were a bit rude and could benefit from some customer service training but the camp grounds were well kept and we enjoyed our stay.

We stayed in a camper that KOA has available to rent. The can opener in it is broken. It needs to be replaced. We actually had to go and buy one. Also, the water in the shower has an odor to it. I don't know if there's any way to fix, but it was bothersome.
