Tent Reviews

Apr 26, 2021
We had a wonderful time. I really liked how the KOA worked around COVID restrictions by delivering wood and the store to our tent. The candy hunt was an awesome surprise. In the morning I was struggling to get my fire re-started and a staff member came by to offer assistance. My girls had so much time. It was a needed break from the pandemic! We already scheduled another visit for next weekend!!!

This was exactly the break from life we were looking for.

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.

We had a great stay and the owners were very accommodating! The campground was beautiful and very clean. There were lots of activities for the kids to enjoy.

This KOA is very well managed and clean. It is also close to Chicago and apple orchards. However, our site is located very close to a busy road, and it was very loud at night.

We had a group of about 8 friends that used this location for a getaway. Everyone was super friendly, the grounds were kept extremely well and the added bonus of the swing was enjoyed by all! All our questions were answered quickly and appreciated the various staff checking in on us. The camp site itself was great (though it would be nice to have a grate onsite) but we made due. We'll return again

Our first camping trip and we were greeted at the gate right away. The tent sites were spaced out nicely so neighbors weren’t unnecessarily right next to each other. One late night a new camper was having trouble setting up their tent and one of the workers helped them out. All staff were friendly. Facilities were kept clean. Being able to text for supplies was very convenient.

The overall campgrounds were great. Bathrooms were very clean and the atmosphere was great. We ended up having leave earlier than expected due to the poor weather conditions, but we had a great time while we were there.

Awesome experience. Friendly staff, quick service responses, excellent communication, super clean bathrooms, lots of shade for tent campers. We had a great time and will definitely return.

Lush green grass and the most spacious tent sites I've ever seen.

We had a very relaxing time. Anytime we texted a order for wood and ice it was delivered in a pleasant and timely manner. The staff was friendly and helpful. And we found the grounds and bathrooms to be nice and clean.

The only disadvantage was that we were closed to the road and it was noisy.

Definitely I would recommend this place to everybody. Even though the pool was closed we enjoyed our stay there. People was very friendly and helpful. Of coarse we’ll be there again. Thanks

Pleased � to help Sylvia Weber to discern a fellow camper who frolicked boisterously well past quiet time. Anticipating this proximity conflict, Sylvia accommodated my move to a quieter facility-free campsite—233. Serendipitously, I later dodged a tortuous derecho storm that swept through my campsite only hours after I departed.

from the events to the polite employees it was a great time. will go back again next year.

Only issue was the distance from the highway. Nice campground.

I was charged twice (tent $58/night) what two other KOAs (Lena, IL and Grand Island, NE, both at about $25) charged me in June. I was told that on this "Deluxe" extra wide campsite that I could park only one vehicle. Shower facilities were closed nearest tent campers. Toilet facilities were closed nearest the RV campers. The campground was run in a miserly fashion.

The camp was clean. The tent site had everything we needed. The staff was nice and delivered ice and wood right to our site. Lots of fun things to do. My son loved the banana bikes. Going to be camping here a lot more often.

The Staff is very nice, accommodating and flexible and tried to make the visit good for children with activities, However, the grass was very long and mosquito infested everywhere in the campsite. We stayed 6 nights and had to deal with mosquitos the entire time. Cutting the grass and some spraying would have helped tremendously.

Nice people who are eager to assist you. There were many activies which was great my our family, I dio wish some of them weren't extra charges though. Everythign we did on site was an extra charge and it really added up.

Dirty showers and lots of mosquitoes not a pleasant stay

I liked the easy check in/check out process. Was very happy about the measures taken for COVID-19 to minimize exposure to other people. The ability to text staff when something was needed at the camp site was a great feature. my kids had a good time with the activities offered like tie dye and the ice cream social. I do wish there was a discount since much of the stuff was closed ie. pool, park

The area was relatively clean and the firewood and ice service was great. The fire pit was nice and the picnic table good. There were some really loud guests on my first night and you were not available at the time but there's nothing you can really do about that. There is plenty of shade but few trees close to each other for a hammock. It would be nice if you could put poles on the sites.

It was a very awesome stay. We enjoyed every minute of it. Love that it’s always clean and staff is always friendly.

Small issue with some toilets being secured on one side while showers secured on the other. Inconvenient. However, the rest of the stay was great!

Great stay. Shame many facilities closed but that is beyond KOA control. Very impressed with attention to COVID mitigation measures and social distancing actions taken seriously .

Owners and Staff were great even with the restrictions due to Covid. Bathrooms were clean which is an important factor to me when deciding to return to a location.

Unfortunately because of the weather prior to our arrival, our campsite wasn’t in the best condition. We got a premium site. It was muddy and the grass was worn down. We ended up leaving early and didn’t stay a second night because the storm that came just made everything so much worse. I should have requested a different campsite when we first arrived. Site 13 and site 24 were bad.

My family (three generations) had a wonderful time, this weekend, camping together, talking, hiking, visiting local sites, cooking over the campfire, and enjoying the beautiful sunsets. Chicago NW KOA was very accommodating in assigning campsites and cabin in close proximity, provided clean restrooms and showers, a safe environment for the children and, of course, tetherball, a family favorite!!

Wonderful stay. Great fun for the kids. Very clean and tidy campground and friendly staff. Best campground I ever stayed at (and I've stayed all over the world.)

Friendly, clean, and awesome!

primary tent camping area was cramped and noisy with kids. so I ended up in an overflow area with only 3 tents out in a field. that was wonderful. trailer area my friends were in was right off the road and very hilly and uneven terrain for camper and picnic table. amenities for the kids pool and other worked out well.
Aug 26, 2019
Campground was clean and well kept. Bathrooms/showers were clean. My kids enjoyed the activities provided by the staff and everyone had a great time! I definitely recommend this campground!

Nice site great for visiting Illinois Railway Museum

We always have a great time. Maybe spray for mosquitoes? That's the only problem we had was just the attack from the mosquitos.

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.
