My sister and I had a great time. We just kicked back and enjoyed the camp ground. The whole staff is very friendly and helpful. Thanks! We will be back

The cabin we stayed at was not clean and we were eaten alive by fleas. The only people who did not abide by the 10 mph speed limit were the workers on the golf carts. Also this KOA was the only one that we have gone to that did not offer free coffee in the morning. We have enjoyed every KOA we have gone to but this one was a HUGE disappointment.

I recently moved from TN to IL and wanted my first camping experience in the Chicago area to be at a KOA. I am thrilled to say it was just as good, if not better, than camping in Tennessee! The employees were warm and kindhearted individuals, and I found the knowledge they had from being retired citizens very comforting. We loved our time at this KOA, and will be back soon!

There was a billing issue which was resolved completely and quickly. Campground is clean and well tended. Some tent sites are very close together. Typical KOA. Friendly staff. Need a hot tub with pool. Convenient to Chicago by train or car. Would stay again.

Excellent campground! Super clean and the staff was really friendly. If you're headed to the Railway Museum or Wild West Town, I highly recommend. My family and I plan to make it a yearly trip!

We had a great stay. The camp ground was clean and well maintained. Every employee we met was kind and professional. We went for my sons 2ns birthday and had family coming in to visit. They were very accommodating. Will definitely be going back.

El agua de las duchas tiene mal olor y es babosa,baños apestan y las cabañas cuando me la entregaron estaban un poco sucias y cuando llueve se estanca el agua alrededor de la cabaña y el mini golf tiene que darle más atención gracias

Not enough showers. They were always busy. The entrance and walk to office was absolutely horrible. You had to walk way around the entire building. Just disgusting!!!!

Best time yet ! 3rd time and each time it gets better and better ! Loved all the improvements. Very clean. So much to do we did not leave the site. Cabins were fun and accommodating. Great service. Easy check in, easy check out ! Can't wait for our next family vacation ! The Cushman / Holst family :-)

The camping cabin was perfect for our short stay as we spent most of our trip in downtown Chicago. My only request would be to get more comfortable mattresses and a lamp in the cabin.

It was the epitome of a fun camping experience.

Is the whole security gate thing an eastern thing? I've camped in lots in the West and never questioned about visitors or gate codes before. Great folks though.

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!

Our stay was great!

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.

The friendliest staff. Very quiet and super clean. Just lovely!

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
