Casey KOA

Casey, Illinois

Date of Stay:

Electric 50/30/20 good, Water 60psi, good sewer. WiFi is acceptable by owners. AT&T Cell phone is weak, AT&T Air card does not connect. Verizon Air Card works very well. Cable is poor. Satellite access for roof mounted antennas is bad because of all the trees. If you have an antenna on a tripod you might get satellite reception. I did in #3. They had a lot of rain here and that could be causing part of the problem. Sites are dirt and gravel. Due to the hard rains over the last week the sites have been graded to allow drainage and is good due to the raining conditions. Sites are level and mine was long enough to hold my 38ft 5th wheel and truck. There is enough room between sites to allow for the awning and room to move around. Restrooms and showers are great. Showers are private stalls with tall doors. Some long term tenants but they are neat and clean. Only discount is the KOA 10% if you are a member. Payment by credit card is acceptable. Owners are nice. Were frustrated due to the rain making conditions difficult for them to maintain, but they did well and were very polite. Price is high for this park but being a KOA that is expected. I would stay here again if in the area.

Electric is 30a only. Most of the power boxes are old but useable. Sewer good. Water @ 40psi. No Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone ok. AT&T Air Card not very good. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card very good better than expected. No Cable. Sites are in an open grass field. Site Size open with plenty of room to park tow vehicle. Site have plenty of room between them. Road to park is asphalt and narrow. Long way from highway. Didn't use Restrooms but all the fulltime tenants use them. Don't know if there is a Laundry. Long term tenants are around the outside edge and are clean and tidy. DirecTV Satellite is easy access. No Discounts. I made Payment in cash. $20 per night plus $3 if you use air conditioner. This may not be the park for everyone. It had rained hard the night before I got there and had no problem pulling thru to get to a site even though it is all grass. It is off the beaten path and very quite. Lots of open space to walk your dog. If you are there on the right days they have a dirt race track that would be fun to watch. It rained to much for a race when I was there so they did not hold any races. The other park in the area is not as great as indicated and I would very much like to stay here than the other one.

Great Electric pedestals for 50/30/20a. They look brand new. Sewer good.Water 40@ psi. Didn't use the Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone signal was ok. AT&T Air Card was good but not strong. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card not as good as AT&T. Cable was good. Site A13. Sites are arranged in an unusual way but they work. Site was plenty long to park truck on the site. Sites are pretty close on the pull through. Roads in the park are crushed asphalt. Road to the park is fairly rough but useable. Restrooms clean but didn't use them. Didn't use the Laundry. Long term tenants are in the area but out of the way of the overnight sites. DirecTV Satellite was no problem. No Discounts. Payment with credit card. This is not as bad of a site as the previous reviews. It is the only one in the area and is good enough for a few nights. The office is in a white build/house. Owners/staff were friendly. I would have no problem staying here for a few days if in the area.

Electric 50/30/20 is good. Sewer good. Water 40@ psi. Wi-Fi not available. AT&T Cell ok. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card good. Cable none available. Site: S4. Site Size long enough to park truck with trailer. Site are close but enough room to put out awning. Roads into the park are rough and narrow. Have a problem with oncoming traffic especially if pulling the trailer or in a MH. Didn't use Restrooms. Didn't use Laundry. Didn't see any Long term tenants. DirecTV Satellite easy in the open pull through but in the back wooded area it would not be possible. No Discounts. Payment by credit card. This is the best park in the area. Not quite as bad as others have reviewed if you stay in the pull through area or on top of the hill. Stayed for a week to visit family and would stay here again if the pull through sites were open.

Date of Stay:

Electric is 30a only. Water pressure is 10psi. Hardly enough to was dishes let alone take a shower. Water pressure in the bathhouses is strong. No Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone is very weak. AT&T Air Card low data signal strength. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card surprising good signal Strength. No Cable. Roads getting to the park is a bit difficult. Narrow and windy. Not signed enough to make it easy. Sites are grass or gravel but not level. Stacked two 2x8 to get close to level. Site length of site 56 is long and plenty of room around for awnings and slides. Getting to some sites is confusing due to the way the site markings and interior roads are laid out. Restrooms old but look clean. Didn't see a Laundry. No Long term tenants. Park was almost empty. DirecTV Satellite is accusable in many but not all places. 50% Discount for Golden Age Passport. Payment is with check or cash only. I would stay here again if in the area, but water pressure was so low making it unpleasant. Water comes in from the water reservoir behind the campground and is only gravity fed. Pressure in smaller sites is much higher.

Electric 50/30/20, Water pressure 60psi, has 3 sewer connections in each site. WiFi is outstanding. AT&T Cell Phone is good, Verizon data was fair. Free cable uses a box inside the RV. Site was gravel, level and wide, long enough to park the trailer and the truck on site. Site are close but enough room for slides and an awning with about 10 foot of grass between sites. Roads are asphalt and easy to drive. Restrooms are outstanding. Have not seen restrooms as elaborate and clean as these. Laundry is good. $1.50 for washer & Dryer. Some Long term tenants but all are neat and clean. DirecTV Satellite access is good. Discount for Good Sam. Payment with credit card. Owners are very nice and accommodating. When in this area again I will stay here.

Electric 50/30/20 is good. Sewer good and at ground level, Water is ok @ 42psi. Wi-Fi Didn't use it but it is not real strong. AT&T Cell Phone good 3bars. AT&T Air 4G Air Card poor. Verizon 4G LTE Air Card very good. Cable but needs a box for the inside to the TV. Site is dirt with a small amount of shale mixed in. Site Size pretty level, good width and length. You can park both truck and trailer on most sites. Some Sites are close while others have a bit more room. Some grass between sites and some trees. Interior roads are dirt with a little shale mix in. CR261 was a dirt and gravel road but the county has come in and put rock and asphalt down but didn't smooth it out. It is wide enough for one lane but if someone is coming toward you both will have to make room, especially if you're in the RV. Restrooms and showers are nice and they look clean. I did not use them. Laundry looks good. 2 washers & 2 dryers. Cost is $1.50 each. Only a few long term tenants, but sites are well kept. DirecTV Satellite is capable in some spots especially if you have the satellite on a ground tripod. Passport America discounts Largest is a pull through at $27. Owner works during the day so pick up a map and form then you pull in and find a site then go to the sign board and pay in the box on the wall. Owner will likely come by and ask you if you want a cable box. This park has a woodsy atmosphere. Quite at night. it rained hard here and the rain ran off the campground quickly. They have an interesting drainage method. Ditches bordered by stones and vegetation and flowers growing along or over the ditched which lead to pipes underground or other ditches to move the water away. If I were in the area and there was room I would stay here again.

Electric is 4 30a outlets per power pole two in each box. Two sites use same power pole pulling through in opposite directions. Water pressure is 60+ psi, no sewer on sites. No WiFi. AT&T & Verizon 4G LTE Air Card service is useable but poor. AT&T Cell phone 4 out of 5 bars. No Cable. Sites are on grass field with plenty of room between door side sites. Satellite is easy in open areas. No long term tenants. Payment with Credit Card ok. The sites are pretty run down. A power pedestal was knocked down and some have bad leaking water making the site unusable. Office is not manned on weekends. You have to go to the big Equestrian office building off to one side behind the small office. If you like being around horses the Equestrian Park is great to see the horses and some of the riders. I would stay here again but would be cautious of picking a site.

Electric 50/30/20 is good. Water pressure at 60psi sustains 40psi and low to the ground. Sewer is good. Services are located middle ways to the site. AT&T Cell phone is strong. Verizon 4GLTE Data signal is stronger than AT&T. Cable is good. Was grainy to begin with but is better. Owner is looking for a better service. Sites are mainly concrete and some on one side are gravel. Concrete sites have grass between them and enough room for slides and an awning. There are long term Tenants due to the construction of a refinery in Lake Charles. Satellite TV is easily accessible. Roads a asphalt or oiled gravel and other parts are all gravel. There are two laundries. One by the office and one near the back of the park.

Electric is good, but close to the ground. Water is 40psi but sustains about 30psi. Didn't use WiFi. Cellphone service is very good as well as data for Verizon and AT&T. Big cell tower beside park. Cable is viewable but grainy, 28 channels. Sites are in two areas. Front area is for smaller RVs and mainly back in. Back area is back in and pull thru. Sites are long enough to park Trailer and TV on site. Sites are spaced wide with grass and about 20ft to put out awning with no problem. Roads and sites are older asphalt. Road is bumpy but useable. Laundry is nice. Wash is $1.25 Dry $1.00 both run for 45 minutes. Restrooms are single user and very nice and clean. There are long term tenants most are well kept. DirecTV is easily accessible. Payment by credit card, cash or check. 50% discount for Passport America and Escapees. You can hear the highway traffic when outside but inside it is quite. Work campers in office were very nice. Nice pond on the back area. Canoes and a paddle boat area available if you want to use them. I would stay here again when in the area.

Electric 50/30/20 is good. Sewer at each site is good. Water has good pressure. WiFi is good but not steady. Air card for both AT&T and Verizon 4G is not good. Campground many times is much better. AT&T cell service shows only 1 bar. Cable cost $20/mo so I didn't use it. Don't know what it would cost for a day or week. Sites are good, all back-in some longer and easier to get into. A large RV would need to be causes of the trees. Interior road is all concrete. Not much on restrooms. They are in a cabin. Laundry is in the office building in the back. Satellite is easy to get in most but not all sites. Payment can be with credit card, cash or check. Three long time tenants and their sites are very messy. I had to leave this park after 12 days of a month rental due to the tall grass and pollinating Oaks causing extreme irritation to my small dog. A good point is that they refunded half of my monthly rent. I have stayed at this campground twice before and it was very good, however this time I was told by the office that it is under repossession by two banks. Those that work in the office were told by the banks that they were not to go onto the property, therefore the grass, weeds and leaves all over the park were terrible. I normally come to this area every year for a month or two, however next year I would have to see the park before I made a reservation.

Electric is good but at the rear of the sites. Some sites only have 30a and others have 50/30/20A, Water pressure is 40psi sustained to about 30psi, Sewer is good but is in the back of the site. Cable TV is good, however in my site local channels are in the lower channel numbers and are fuzzy, but were corrected by the owners. Verizon Air Card is better than the AT&T for your computer. WiFi is available but weak in the outer areas. AT&T Cell phone is good. Sites vary, some are concrete and some are gravel. I was in a gravel site and it's Length and width is good for the trailer and is level. Plenty of room between sites with grass so you can put out an awning with no problem. Had to park the Pickup crosswise or in another site if available. Interior roads are gravel. Laundary is good but the washers have a bit of rust starting on them but work well. Price for the washer is $1 and dryer is $1.25. Most of the tenants are monthly for the winter. Only a couple sites have fulltime tenants. Many of the sites have trailers stored here. No discounts for Monthly tenants. Payment can be made with credit card. Didn't use the restrooms but many here do. Owners are great. If I were in this area again I would stay here again.

Electric & Sewer good, Water @ 40psi. Didn't use Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell Phone good, AT&T Air 4G Card poor, Verizon 4G LTE Air Card good but not great. Cable good and clear with many channels. Sites are gravel and fairly level. The campground is mildly sloped causing need to level more from side to side. Sites are wide and the pull thru's are very long with plenty of room between sites with some grass. Interior road is asphalt and in good condition. Restrooms & Laundry are good and clean. There are some long term tenants but the area is clean and neat. DirecTV Satellite is accessible but may be a problem in some sites due to trees. They accept numerous discounts ask for your best one. Not a Passport America campground. Payment by credit card is accepted. This is a nice campground. I have been to all three campgrounds in Cortez and this one is by far the better one. I would stay here if in the area again. Also the restaurant next door looks run down but it has a very good breakfast. The sausage patty is bigger than the palm of your hand.

Electric & Sewer good, Water @ 110 psi sustains 70psi. Did not use the Wi-Fi. AT&T Cell phone signal is good. Verizon Air Card is very poor but AT&T works great. No Cable. Sites are compact gravel and are close to level both ways. The sites are narrow and barely long enough to park the tow vehicle on the sideways. Getting in and out of the sites can be a problem with long RV's. This park is large and compact. As mentioned previously the sites are nose to tail side by side using the same pedestal services for both. This places the RV's close together. Internal roads are asphalt and in good shape. Did not use restrooms, showers or laundry. Satellite access is possible in the site I stayed in and could be a problem in some sites. There are long time tenants and park model housing in the park. Discount for GS is available. I would rather stay some other place if one is available.

Could be longer if you wanted to stay connected. Plenty of room between sites with grass in between. Roads asphalt and gravel. Restrooms are great.

GS discount & paid with a credit card. I really like this place. It is not a destination or Resort but it has a lot of grass to walk your dog. The roads are wide and smooth. The sites are level and wide. What not to like. I would definitely stay here when passing through.
