Staff was amazingly friendly and accommodating. Facilities were clean and well maintained. Overall one of the best stays I have had at a KOA. I will definitely put Kankakee South KOA on my list of favorites.

Deluxe cabin was great! Clean and tidy, fresh towels, and sheets. All windows opened smoothly and allowed for plenty of fresh air during all the rain! Staff was super friendly!

I do not recommend to stay in the delux cabin because the quality of water is very bad and it seems like sewer. staff recognized these conditions but they do not think that they are going to fix this problem. You should consider before you book up!

The property is not taken care of. The pool has not been opened in a couple of years. We purchased over 30 dollars in fire wood and it was to wet to burn, You advertise falsely, your volleyball net is trash, so is the basketball goal. There is no heat in the cabins, and the wifi is non existent. Your place looks nothing like your pictures, we were very disappointed.

Amazing place and was exactly what I was looking for.

This was a one-night only stay, which was a shame. We arrived late and had to leave early as we were just traveling through with a schedule to stick to. We loved the cabin we stayed in - very pleased to have a bathroom, a kitchen sink and fridge etc. The bed was comfy and much appreciated after a 12.5 hour drive from New Orleans. Would definitely stay there again. But longer!

Our stay was a last minute booking. We orginaly had the small Cabin then we upgraded to the delux. Well worth a t! Had a enjoyable visit and stay for the one night we also used the pool.

nous avons loué une cabine, malheureusement, l'égout de notre voisin était situé juste à côté de notre table de pic nic, pas très intéressant. J'ai refusé de consommé l'eau car le camping est mal situé.

Very relaxing

We enjoyed our cabin. The only issue experienced was intermittent hot water at the kitchen sink. It would start out hot and then turn cold. We would wait a few minutes, and turn it back on and the water would be hot, then cold. Other than that, we enjoyed the surroundings which were quiet, and loved the porch swing!

stayed in cabin,would have given a 10 but slight odor of a dog was in the cabin

This is our 3rd or 4th time to stay at the cabin here. It is a great option for us with two kids and a dog. Fun activities this year with the added movie night and game room. Kids enjoyed the pool. Only negatives are the stinky sulfur smelling h2o (which I get can't be helped) and the fact that a cardinal dive-bombed the windows of the cabins about 300 times between 5 and 8 am.

Stayed in little cabin with 2 grandchildren they loved it and the pool and playground.

It's the first place we've stayed where there was no toaster,coffee pot,plates and etc.Ill.rules and etc.is very strange and if a guest is from out of town they need to be told what to expect at their deluxe cabins.Also it was first one we've stayed at where it was closed during the day for any reason,no one covering.Other wise your camp ground is very nice and so was the cabin.

We loved the Lodge cabin! Also, staff is super friendly and site is clean! Best of both worlds to have A/C but then still grill outside and look at the stars. Have tent camped here too and enjoyed that as well.

We always enjoy our stay. The park is welcoming and quiet. You can tell the buildings and grounds crew has really been busting their humps to make the place look even better. Keep up the great work!

Just stopped over for the night. Staff was friendly and the washrooms were clean. Cabin was as expected. Our dog liked the K-9 Camp.

The campground was a great get away. As for the mattresses in the cabin were HORRIBLE. They must get new mattresses. The park staff were great and the activities were amazing.

We had a great time. We rented the Deluxe Cabin and it was great except for the stinky water. We have been going there for Halloween camping for the last 5 years and we love it!!

We stayed in the "luxury" camping cabin. It was way overpriced. It was not cleaned. The toilet wasn't even flushed. The toilet did not work right. We were left a nasty surprise in the toilet. The kitchen sink was dirty. The shower curtain was so dirty we didn't even want to use the shower so we didn't. $90 for this? It made us wonder how clean the bed linens were.

We had a great time. The cabin was very clean. We are definitely coming back again. There was a mixup with my brothers reservation but Chris in the office fixed the situation
