Kankakee South KOA Reviews

Campground Reviews

Nice camp site. Nice shower and toilet facilities. friendly staff. WiFi provided is WORTHLESS! Because there is literally NO CELLULAR coverage at this KOA (works fine at the main road but not at campground) PLEASE INVEST in your WiFi network. Likely won't stay again because I have to drive to Kankakee or Chebanse to park for the day to get cellular coverage to work my business needs.

Loved the new cabins. If I owned this campground there would be just a few little things I'd do to enhance the experience. But overall with the world being what it is this year we had a great time.

The campground is on a well ,so, if you can get past the well water and sulfur you're going to be okay. Highly recommend eating ar Rigo`s Place !!!!

Check in was quick and easy, Chris at the front was friendly and efficient. He guided us to our site, which was shady and level. The campground was clean and quiet.

The park is going to be a beauty someday! They are working hard and it shows. We did a lot of walking - no pool - but friendly and COVID protection was enforced. The gardens are beautiful.

The tent sites were in a beautiful area. The dog play area was large.

This was our 3rd stay with Kankakee South KOA. Site was very good, I asked for shade and got it. We extended our stay prior to arriving with no difficulty. Thank you, Kankakee South KOA.

We had a great stay! Staff was always friendly and requests for wood and garbage pick up were very prompt. Will definitely stay again.

Good site, 44. Wifi could be a bit faster.

It was more crowded than I expected given the state of corona virus. I had expected more distance between units. None of the campers we saw had masks.

I really liked the physical camp grounds, they were lovely with all of the big old trees. The shower was freezing making it very hard to wash my 2small children.I was shocked at the lack of signage regarding COVID 19 measures. We were at another KOA site last weekend and the bathrooms were cleaned 4x a day (sheet initialed on door) and masks were encouraged everywhere Only mask sign wason office

The staff was very friendly. The roads within the campsite were terrible with chunks of broken asphalt instead of gravel. The water was just unbearable. I realize that this isn't the fault of the site as much as the location/ situation, but honestly it was a deal breaker for ever returning.

Always a blast. Clean campground and clean facilities :)

We had a great site during our stay. The campground is what you expect from a KOA. Contactless check in was great and we were met at the entrance and led to our site. Staff were friendly and respected social distancing and wore masks. With just an hour drive from our home, we will definitely be back.

Quiet, well shaded, conformed to covid guidelines. only downside I couldn't get anything on my tv no real problem but I like to watch some before bed or on a rainy day, should consider putting cable in campground.

The only comment is we would have appreciated having a sheet telling us about trash and recycle. We loved the area we were in with very friendly seasonal residents and gorgeous landscaping with a nice cornfield backdrop. Great area to go sightseeing from!

Easy check in, fast service, friendly staff, the best place to stay every time we go thru Illinois.

Ours was a last-minute stop-over as we traveled to Minnesota. Although we stayed just one night, this was one of our favorite campgrounds on this 10-day trip. The grounds are lovely! Our site was at the end of a row and we looked out on a nicely landscaped area, trees, and a field. The site itself had full hook-up and a wooden platform. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Great campground, well maintained.

We were very excited to stay here, however, we were unable to use the water/shower because it seemed that the septic tank was leaking into the water well as the running water smelled liked sewage. We stayed at site 47. Hopefully this can be fixed to better the stay of the next person! Otherwise, the location of the site and the campground itself was great.

CAMPGROUND RESPONSE / COMMENTS:

I assure you that the septic tank is not leaking into the well. We have a high concentration of sulfur. Our water is tested through the state and deemed potable.

First, i sat at a nearby Walmart for hours waiting to get into my site because they don’t allow early check in. So lost half a day’s activities. The children that run things are clueless. My site was very sloped and the swear connection was so far back I had to buy another 10’ hose extension to add onto my existing 25’ hose. Definitely do not recommend the back in sites if you have over 15

The well water had a terrible smell, we even used a filter.

Great location for camping. We requested a different spot than booked which was accommodated. Thanks! Clean grounds, friendly staff.

As always it was a great weekend! The park is clean and tidy. Staff available to lead us to our site, check-in by text. Be back in 2 weeks!

The cabin was appropriately sized and cozy. Thermostat was not adjusting well though. Bedsheets were not changed on one of the bedrooms, there are strands of hair by the pillows. But overall the stay was very relaxing.

Easy check in, fast serving and friendly staff. We love it - always a pleasant stay.

We were there for 2 nights while visiting family in the area. We really didn't use the amenities but everything looked clean. The staff was extremely helpful and actually delivered ice to our campsite.

Excellent staff! The curbside check-in was super easy and SAFE! Wonderful measures were being taken to ensure proper social distancing and precautions. They were also very flexible with allowing us to purchase an extra campsite for the remaining members in our house (provided that it wasn't booked already and we were still safe). Excellent camping experience, we'll definitely stay here again!

Service was INCREDIBLE! We had to check in late and not only was someone texting with us the particulars of check in, there was also an employee riding around in a golf cart to make sure we had all we needed for the night. Amazing and serene location — very quiet — and met all the needs we had. Thank you for a great night!

The bathrooms were filthy. The staff was very nice.

It was very clean, however, the office lacked on gifts to purchase (only a few t-shirts available) for reminders of our visit. Other KOA’s were well stocked with momentos

What a pretty place to spend a night while traveling through the area. Eautiful mature trees and plenty of room to walk. They've done a nice job here.
