Tent Reviews

We come every year, and like to come on Halloween weekend. We always return because the campground is ALWAYS clean and quiet. We are impressed that it is obvious that monies earned are out back into the grounds for improvements. It would be nice if they would fog for mosquitoes in the summer-I'm not aware if they do. We can't wait to come back in the summer!!

We never miss a Halloween weekend campout. Have been coming for years. Love the campground and the owners are great. We'll be back to camp throughout the year too!

Very kid friendly with great staff! Bathrooms were clean and relatively modern. Clean campsites with soft grass! Some highway noise at night. Staff did a great job with Halloween festivities for kids.

Bathrooms were decent, but only 3 shower and 3 bathrooms per gender in the whole campgrounds. Had an unruly group really impact our stay and took quite a while before management did anything about it. It was a holiday weekend and had very few activities compared to other locations we've been. Not a lot of rules which can be nice. Tent spots not very shaded.

The facilities were extremely clean and staff were, including store employees, were extremely personable and helpful. There was an extremely loud German shepherd which made sleeping difficult. It barked sporadically until well after quiet hours. Check out time was 11:00 am, which is too early for camping. It required us to break camp much earlier than we would have like.

We had a group of 11 softball players and their families at the KOA for a season kickoff cookout and camping. We were very happy with the space and had plenty of room for all to play eat, talk, beanbags, wiffle ball and much more. Kids loved the pool and gameroom. The facilities were very clean and employees were very attentive, kind and helpful. Overall great place to have a get together.

The campground was clean, and I loved how dog friendly it was. The bathrooms and facilities were clean and nice. However, the site a few down from ours were obnoxious, drunk and super loud. They played music and kept singing loudly into the night (well past midnight). We saw the staff drive by a couple times on their golf cart (after 10pm, before 11pm) but did not see them say anything.

I was disappointed that there were no changing tables in the bathroom! I consider KOA’s to be family friendly but with no way to easily care for my child I was disappointed in this KOA.

Super loud people at 5am were pretty rude. For the price of a primitive site, a little seclusion would have been nice but we had neighbors right on top of us and had to listen to drunks riding around in golf carts.

Reservation was fast, check in pleasant. They have a few attractions on the site. Quiet and nice wooded area. Pool is a bonus. Would highly recommend.

Came down from Wisconsin to visit my grandkids and what wonderful way to spend a few days camping and swimming with them. Staff was kind and caring, pool was fantastic, bathrooms and showers were in excellent shape and sites were clean and comfortable. Lots of trees for shady spots.(We had a primitive tent site.) My grandkids and I had a great visit together, thanks so much!

Great site if visiting the Chicago area! Very clean. Be prepared for mosquitoes though if coming here in the summer - bug spray or a mosquito tent will do the trick. Friendly and accommodating staff. We switched sites after our first night to a more quiet location, the staff was very understanding and adjusted our reservation (we went from an electric hook-up to non-electric site).

Best time ever. As usual. All KOAs have great staff and clean camping.

The staff were very accommodating to allow me to check in early, and friendly when I arrived.

i understand that I stayed at a primitive site and I expected bugs. But there are just WAY too many tiny bugs around the site, and it's hard to want to do anything. Whenever we were outside of our tent to play sports, etc, we were basically swallowing bugs because they were so many and tiny (i.e. width of pencil mark and length about 0.1 inch). It was a pity that the bugs ruined the stay.

Friendly and helpful staff. Good location. There were fun activities for the Halloween weekend for the kids...lots of fun. All facilities were functional and clean. Showers were clean and the water was hot. The laundry room needs updating.

I love this place. The month of October is so much fun here.

It's a nice koa. I did enjoy our stay. If I could say anything it would be that it was a very small campground with everyone fairly tightly packed. And the camp store didn't have all that many selections. But still over all good stay.

Just another nice stay at KOA Kankakee South, IL.

Very clean campground. I wouldn't allow dogs due to their barking. Location is not the greatest since you can hear the traffic from the near by highway Over all not bad-great for families

Great location as it's next to a cornfield so you feel like your in the wilderness and not camping in a backyard. Bathrooms were very clean, staff and people there were very nice plus a nice bundle of wood for only 5 bucks! My family and I are definitely going back!

My scout group has been tent camping at this KOA since 2010. We always have a great time.

Campground needs some work. Bathroom stalls had no locks. Shower stall curtains were too narrow, so water sprayed out and all of your stuff gets wet. Showers have a stool that is so wobbly I was afraid to sit on it or put my stuff on it because it would colaspse. WiFi doesn't reach anywhere in camp but the 1st campsites near camp office and then is so slow you can't even check mail.

Very laid back and simple. Was not over whelmed but still offered things to do around the camp.

The campsite was cramped, uncomfortable, and dirty. When we arrived our fire pit was FULLl of trash and there was food scraps and cigarette butts littered on the ground. The campstore closes at 7pm and was not accommodating. There was only one restroom facility and it wasn't well maintained.

Owner was terrific to work with. We stored our RV for 2 days and took the train to Chicago. Felt safe leaving RV. Friendly campground. Thank you

This place is awesome. The staff is super friendly, the bathrooms are clean, and they have a pet area! We went for just one night and it was so much fun. We are definitely coming back and the fact that they are dog friendly is great!
