Date of Stay:

Nice clean park not too far from expressways leading to Chicago. They had 2 swimming pools one heated and a hot tub. They had fun pedal go karts that the kids could rent for $12 an hour. The staff was nice and helpful. We do not like the visitors policy at Yogi Bear parks, $15 per person for family and friends to come and have dinner. We enjoyed our stay and liked the fact that the park is conveniently located. We'd like to rank these parks higher but they are too fee crazy. Camp store also poorly stocked on food items.

Date of Stay:

Good: Campground was very nice and well kept. Our reserved site was water soaked so they moved us without any hassles. We had a waterfront campsite which was very nice and big. We enjoyed the free canoes and paddle boats. Bad: We've had a cooler than normal summer and the pool was too cold to enjoy. It was a big pool just too cold. Mini golf course was in need of attention. Men's shower could have been planned better in this new facility, no privacy or change area. We wish the store would have opened earlier on Friday, didn't open until 11 AM. Pool opens at noon daily.

Date of Stay:

The Bad: Lots of fees to pay including a facility fee of $9 on top of the normal nightly rate. We had family come and stay one night on our site in a tent, and they had to pay the full rate of $55 to sleep on a site we already paid for! We only wanted to stay Thurs and Fri but were required to pay for Saturday as well, even though we didn't stay Saturday night. Mini golf, paddleboats and rides down the waterslide are also extra charges. Waterslide is located too far from the pool to make it worthwhile. The Good: The campground itself was nice, with clean bathrooms and showers. Heated pools and hot tubs are clean well maintained. Pretty little lake with wooded areas for primitive camping and short hikes. We did have the whole place to ourselves Thurs and early Fri as it didn't get crowded until Friday night. The pool and hot tub were great. Unless you stay by the lake will you will have very little to no shade. Staff was friendly but not very helpful. I will go back since the kids had a great time - just know your stay can get expensive.
