Stayed at the Green River Oaks Memorial Day Weekend and had a blast. Owners and staff were incredible. Sights were large and clean and park was amazing. We had stayed there years ago and the owners have since changed and have done a great job. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Travel Trailer.

When we first arrived water was leaking from the hook ups, I let them know. There were holes in the ground I asked to be covered up so my children wouldn't get hurt and the play areas are outdated and old and I even asked to have that addressed, I didn't want a kid to get hurt. Although it's under new ownership, they were extremely rude and the place is the worst we have been too. What horrible owners. We won't be back and I suggest you look elsewhere.

We are seasonal campers, who also travel a bit in our trailer. We have been camping at Green River Oaks now going on four years and find it to be a great place to enjoy the camping life. The new owners have really started to bring the grounds to high standards. The park has two pools to accommodate all ages, and is located on the Green River for fishing fun and its a great lazy river for tubing or kayaking, canoeing etc. The property is large and has a variety of RV sites from full hookups to primitive. The efforts of the new owners will soon have this park listed as the premier spot to camp in Northern Illinois. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Starved Rock State Park, The Illinois River, The Rock River, Wild Buffalo and Amboy Days are all close by for excellent day trips.

We have camped here many times since the new owners have taken over. They are doing an incredible job of reviving the place. It is a family friendly park with 2 clean and well maintained pools, miniature golf, a game room, and a lazy river with awesome fishing! There are many kid friendly events held every weekend as well so you're never at a loss for things to do! So relaxing and safe! We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We've camped this campground a number of times over the past four years. This year, they have new management. We always said that this park needed a tiny bit of attention and it would be a great park. The new owners are busy making changes. Some of them good - like knocking down a dilapidated building. But some of them are not good, in my opinion. We were told we would have to wear wristbands throughout our entire stay. I don't know why - everything was included in the price - they have a "guarded" shack and as far as I know, the only people who were using the pool were the campers. The store was stocked with very overpriced items. Above and beyond convenience store prices. No bait, but shockingly, they have a can of corn for $2.50!! And the wood was a $1 a piece. A little spendy considering we were not allowed to bring our own wood. They had some scheduled activities - of which we only participated in the craft one in the morning. Otherwise, my kids were busy catching frogs in the pond. Or finding feathers from the Turkey Vultures who perch in the large pine trees. The two pools are typically well-maintained. Although, they were cold. My children only swam for 15 minutes. We will probably go back. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is an older park that is out in the rural area, so it doesn't have any road noise, railroad trains, etc. It is showing its age and could use some good tlc and repairs. Check-in people were very nice and helpful. Our site was ok, but the sewer connection was broke and just laying on the ground. There are a number of folks who apparently keep there RVs there and come in on the weekends. Would probably stay again when in the area. We were there 4 days/3 nights while attending a class reunion. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed at Green River Oaks Camping Resort over 4th of July weekend. We really enjoyed our time here with our two sons. If you want a peaceful, relaxing trip, this is the place for you. First off, the owners are wonderful. They have owned the property for 41 years. They were very welcoming and made us feel at home. The land is beautiful. The swimming pools, basketball court & baseball were bonuses and fun for our boys. I won't lie, the place needs a little TLC, some bushes trimmed and the pavilion could use a new roof but none of that took from the beauty of this campground. We will definitely be back! We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is quiet and relaxing, but parts of it are run down. The mini golf is overtaken by weeds and not used anymore. There is an old water slide that looks like it was once fun, but is broken down and not it use. The pools were older, but clean and perfectly usable. The indoor bathrooms behind the office were lovely, and the outdoor ones were usable, but not always working properly. I thought $40 was a bit much to stake my tent, but there was nothing glaringly wrong at this place. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Tent.

If you are looking for a nice quiet campground, this is the place. Well off the beaten track, but worth the drive. The roads from Amboy to the campground is not the best but we had no problem in our 30 foot Class C towing a car. Check in is done at a kiosk at the gate, no need to exit your rig. Roads are a little rough, but not bad. Site markings are a little confusing. Bathhouse was clean, however a bit of upgrading would help. Staff was friendly and helpful. Overall, a nice stay. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Motorhome.

Weekend camping. Large area, little rough sites but manageable. Internal roads ok; check-in hut during week. Great, open area and fields away for everything but we were parked in a reunion gathering with 20 other campers while there were many, many open spots we could have been assigned to. Low attendance. Mostly shady, restrooms fine, sites and surrounding areas mowed and clean. Great walking, hiking and bike riding area. Class A, probably won't return. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Motorhome.

We stayed for a Halloween themed weekend. The kids loved it, lots of fun activities. The campground is not being maintained very well. One of the shower buildings was very dirty and run-down. Something is killing the trees. Over 300 trees have been removed. A large branch fell on a neighbor's RV the day we arrived. We would not stay here again.

This is a nice campground the only thing is the sites are a bit tight. We only stayed one night. We camped at Green River Oaks Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
