We have spent a wonderful weekend at Lake Ladonna. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This park has a new owner and great improvements have been made through out the park. The bathrooms are all new and very clean. The kids had a great time at the beach and the entertainment was a blast! My family will be spending more weekends at this campground this summer. I would highly recommend this campground to all families! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We were very disappointed! The cabin that we stayed in had obviously been flooded several times and reaked of mold. The hot water heater did not work. And when we tried to call the office, no one was there right after we checked in. We left a message and didn't hear from anyone. The lodge was not open even though we were told that it was open from 10-6. The creek was packed with garbage and went right behind the cabin. And don't even get me started on the trains that were right next to the cabin all night long. The lake was the only good thing. I would not recommend camping here unless you don't need any sleep and don't mind being surrounded by garbage. We camped here in a Campground Cabin.

Great family campground!! Been going here for years. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Took the family here for Memorial Day Weekend. All of us had a wonderful time. There is plenty to keep the kids busy. With the park, the creek, the sand beach, and all the other kids running around having fun, they were all well run down by bed time. This is a very friendly campground. We were surprised by how welcome we felt with just about everyone we made conversation with. There's a good mix of personalities there. Even though it was Memorial Day weekend, things wound down to a respectable level so we could all get our rest. The live band on Sunday was a lot of fun. Some reviews have commented about train noise, but we personally found it tolerable and not as frequent as it was described. Nothing a glass of Scotch can't cure before bed. (The kids slept well - all four of them - that's the important part.) We did not use the facilities as other may need to. We will certainly be returning, as out of the many different places we've visited over the last year - this is one of my favorites. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Not really impressed with this campground. The trains are too close. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed here due to it's proximity to Dixon, IL. Spent one night only. The trains kept us from getting any sleep, and could not wait for the break of dawn to leave. Bathrooms were also dirty and rundown. We stayed here after reading Woodall's description and rating. No mention whatsoever about trains running day and night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
I would love to give this campground an 8 or 9 rating, but I cannot. Even though this is early in the season, there was a pile of garbage that was not only an eye sore, but could be a potential health issue. The bathrooms were terrible! Only go if you do not need to use bathroom facilities. There also is no pump out station available, there is a honey wagon, if you can catch it. It is also close to transportation, if you like freight trains! The tracks are less than 100 feet from the campground and they run all night long. The lake on the property, is definitely kid friendly and kids will love this place, with lots of things going on. The seasonal sites are large and for the most part well kept. Everyone that we met was extremely friendly. If not for the bathrooms, garbage, trains and lack of a good pump out station, this would be a great place. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground was clean with lots of shade. Grounds were freshly mowed. Several hiking trails could have been better marked. Camp hosts knowledgeable and friendly. Would camp here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
