Campground Reviews

Everyone at this KOA was super nice and very helpful. My family and I loved the dog fenced in site, my dogs were able to run around and play without being on leashes which was a ease on our minds. It was great to have a guide bring us to our site and all you had to do was text a number and they brought you firewood which was super convenient. Will be staying here again for sure.

We loved the text messages alerting us to checking in, activities, and checking out. It was also wonderful to have our hosts and their crew driving by and checking to see if all was well or if we needed anything!

The staff was very friendly and the facilities exceptionally clean. The noise level was an issue at times. Some campers at nearby sites were quite loud and blasted music (and at one point a movie on a projection screen at their site) well after 8pm I think maybe quiet time should start earlier than 11pm on weekends.

They were very accommodating through this pandemic.

We have been going to this campground for decades. Since the new owners have purchased the campground it has been amazing!!! They are always updating the sites and have activities for the kids. Great place to stay close to home!!!

Always very clean. Friendly staff. One amazing thing that I've observed year after year is that they put money back into the campground. Whether it's new swings, firepits, equiptment, flowers, or whatever else it's great to see it look better and better each year. Love camping here! Great job Union KOA!��

Excellent as always. Sylvia and Thomas did an excellent job during a very difficult situation during the pandemic!!

Even in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic Sylvia and Thomas provided a safe environment and safe activities for kids. The staff was most accommodating. Our month long stay at the Chicago Northwest KOA was very comfortable.

Thank you for a very nice weekend. We are new to camping, we bought our RV in June. We have been to a few places & they were nice but we just loved this one. It was so friendly & completely geared for families. Whether your children have 2 legs or 4 legs & fur. We really enjoyed the children trick or treating, We will be back�Ϧ

Nice area, clean, easy to get to, a little close to a main road as Friday night there was loud traffic. Our site was smaller than I had hoped for a deluxe tent site. The swing and fire pit were nice touches though! Fun fall activities. Love the delivery to site for firewood and ice- not sure if that is just for Covid- but it’s great!

Store not open at all. General needs upkeep.

Plenty of activities for kids on Saturdays for Halloween. It is a bit pricey though.

This campground never disappoints. It’s clean, the staff is always friendly, smiling and helpful, and they offer fun activities and amenities. We will continue staying at this campground several times a season.

Always a great time when we stay here.Staff is very friendly grounds are well kept and clean. Some of the sites are a tad small & close together but other than that, we enjoyed our stay.

Pull Thru drive up was convenient especially for new RV campers like us. Would be great alcohol was sold as we had to leave premises to buy some. Staff was friendly and accommodating.

The workers are very nice and helpful. The bathrooms and showers are clean. The park is quiet at night. Everyone was very friendly. We visited the Train museum in Union Illinois. We usually visit the Automobile museum in Vola, Illinois, but it was closed. We visited our relatives who live in the suburbs of Chicago, and they joined us for a campfire one night. The kids celebrated Holloween.

Very nice clean campground. Fun activities for all. Promoted social distancing. Strong WiFi was wonderful! To get firewood or ice we just needed to send a text. Very attentive.

The stay was excellent. Happy with the facilities like bathrooms, delivery of ice and firewood at the campsite itself. Toilets were very neat. I liked the communication via text messages for requesting firewood, for any queries etc. Only feedback I have is the staff can be wee bit more careful given the covid times. I could see some staff getting a lil too close to guests without wearing masks.

Seasonal guest. Everything was great; host and all staff were friendly and helpful.

Our only issues with our stay were the following: 1. Our cabin was not the one I was told we had reserved so we were further away from our friends. 2. The flooding of the bathrooms was inconvenient although we understand it was beyond your control. 3. Having the showers only open by the RV sites seemed backwards to us. Most of them have their own showers and no one on the cabin/tent side did.

They stay good.

Such a courteous & friendly staff! Clean, well operated grounds.

Great place to stay if you get the right spot. Our original site was less than great. After checking in with the site team (which was very accommodating and nice) we were moved to a much nicer site that allowed for us to actually enjoy ourselves.

We stayed here because we were having problems with our RV and needed to get it into the nearest dealer for some service. While at Chicago Northwest, the staff and especially their maintenence man went out of his way to help us. The park was clean and spacious. I would recommend this park.

Nicely handled pandemic precautions with staff wearing masks, delivery service, limited contact check-in, mask recommendations and reminder postings. They sent out texts with info of activities as well as site delivery receipts of charges. Anyhow, we come here every year and enjoy our stay.

We were lucky to get in on a last minute cancellation and even luckier to get one of the patio spots. It was beautiful! And with the precautions you have in place, I felt very safe. I haven't been there in almost 20 years. I hardly recognized the place! It's a fabulous campground!

It was good and we plan to come back.

First time staying and will definitely come back. Excellent communication process with the texting system, and customer support is everywhere for anything you need. Just a few things.... it was a busy weekend and the trash dumpster was overflowing, the pet run area was out of sanitation bags, and the handicap rest room doesn't have a paper towel dispenser (at all... it wasn't like it was empty).

We can't be more happy with the efficiency of this campground. Owner, Sylvia Weber has embraced technology well, using it to text us with information pertinent to our stay as well as email receipts on our purchases. We loved the painless, paperless transactions and will be back to use the campground when we visit our grandkids. BTW, they loved the scarecrow build workshop and Gem Mining.

I would give 5 stars, but the quality and clarity of water was not the best. We bought and used bottled water during our stay. On a good note, the park was clean and all the staff were friendly, helpful and always smiling! Security gate was nice, park was quiet. Loved all the activities too

Everything went well. Thanks for the hospitality and allowing us to stay with you.

Just got back from staying here. Great time! Very clean bathrooms and showers and awesome customer service. The owner is always around and checking up on people and the staff is amazing. The ice cream social was the bomb. Would definitely come back.

This KOA is well maintained by a caring, helpful and friendly staff. The owners reinvest in the property and are constantly upgrading the sites. This year's upgrades included brick patios, wooden swings and dog pens in some of the RV sites. We highly recommend this KOA.
