This is a nice campground if you're a social camper. All of the sites are VERY close together. There are no trees between any of the sites. The amenities were great. I highly recommend the tube ride down the river. The kids had a great time. They had movie night on Saturday. The bathrooms were somewhat updated compared to past reviews and staff was friendly. We won't come here again only because we're private campers, but it was nice the time we were there.

An excellent park! There is a lake that has a swimming beach (though due to heavy rains the beach was under water). There is no drainage into the lake so it is clean without E. Coli issues. Plenty of bathrooms around. There's plenty of wooded sites but even the open sites are spacious and offer some trees. This is close to the Dells. There is also a camp store that meets your needs. This is prime camping here.

A nice park that offers very spacious, private sites, the best we've ever camped in. The state's largest waterfall is within walking distance of the campground. The playground only offers swings but the kids had fun. There seems to be a need for another shower house but it's cleaned twice daily so it's sufficient. The only downer is the beach had high E. Coli counts during our visit so we couldn't swim. Otherwise it's a great place to camp.

I love this campground, though the only reason I didn't give it a 10 is because of the bathrooms. The bathrooms are way too small for the number of sites which makes for a dirty bathroom with lots of waiting for showers. Other than that, the sites are fabulous and the campground is very quiet at night (except for the youth group but they're further away so that's OK). This was our second time staying here and we will stay again because of the outstanding sites.

This was a nice campground. Despite the trees, there's not a whole lot of privacy between sites. The owners were friendly. They had Karaoke one of the nights we were there, and our family had as much fun as if we were at a wedding! I felt the Karaoke should have ended sooner than 11 though since we have little ones. We would stay here again.

A very beautiful park, lots of privacy at the campsites. There is a new bathroom with huge individual rooms for showers (it's nice to shower without being by someone using the potty). The bats were great, they even came out in the rain. Despite them, however, there were lots of flies and mosquitoes, most likely due to the heavy flash flood rain we were having. It's definitely out in the boonies-don't forget anything!

The wooded sites give the campsites a private feel. The hosts regularly parole the area to help keep it quiet at night. We enjoyed our campsite. However, there are not enough flush toilets or garbage cans. The dumpster is not even at the site of the bathrooms. There was not much of a playground either. There is plenty to do at Starved Rock which made up for what the campground lacked.

A very nice clean, well-maintained park. The kids had a great time in the playground. There's a little pond that has frogs as well as the Kishwaukee river for fishing. The only downsides were, the sites are a little closer together than average and the water has leaves in it (which isn't a big deal if your water intake has a screen on it.
