As many have said this is parking lot used for overflow for sports events and trucks. Access was simple following instructions provided by others. Access by 55 south off at 21st and head to marshalling yard. Didn't see a bridge in the way at all. Be prepared and your access is easy I wouldn't recommend coming without a fully self contained rv as there are no showers bathrooms water hookups or power onsite or nearby I was Traveling in a 45'mh so absolutely no problem parking here for four days Found a spot at end and closest neighbor about 70 feet away. Generator run daily to keep coach utilities up Got here on a Thursday stayed until Monday. A Bears game was going on Sunday. Surrounded by tailgating fans about 10 am. Made some new friends had breakfast with them and about 1130 they were all at game. No tailgating is allowed during the game If a Bears game is in town definitely get here 2 days in advance. Saturday arrival would be turned away. Camped here with about 15 other Rv's for 4 days Some people moved to edge during game. We were in middle of lot and did not have to move. Parking attendants very polite and directed cars around my rig I would stay again for convenience of being so close to town to explore the city. - Big Rigger

Like others have said, it is what it is, a truck yard. But, it is close to the beach at Lake Michigan, close to the Navy Pier, and about a 15 dollar Uber ride to downtown. Was not too trashy, was pretty quiet, and there were about 2 dozen RVs there when we spent the night. Would definitely stay again as there is no place else close. - DogFriendlyGuy

This place is, after all, a truck yard. You do have to plan (& call) ahead. But, you're only a couple miles down the lake front from the Navy Pier, & dead across Lakeshore Dr from the 31st St beach. For the money, this close to downtown, Urban Boondocking works for this camper. Will stop here again. - BillHan1959

Maybe I just happened to pick a bad weekend, but this first visit to this campground was completely miserable. Perhaps had I come to tent camp and never expected to leave the campground the whole weekend, I'd have a different opinion. First the good points-- nice graveled campsites (and all have electric), plenty of shade and privacy between the sites in this heavily wooded campground, fairly clean bathhouse, and a nice lake nearby. If you happen to be a resident of DuPage county, the $20/night rate is not bad either. Sadly, the good points end there. The campground is located at the very back of the park and requires driving over 6 large speed bumps to come and go. The campground roads are narrow gravel with tight turns and hills. Most sites are only suitable for tents, pop-ups, vans, or RVs less than 25'. The only available water is from non-threaded spigot pumps. The dump station is small and tilted the wrong way to empty most RV tanks. The campground is only open 2 or 3-night weekends from May through Sept. But perhaps the biggest negative-- both the campground and forest preserve gates are closed and locked just after sunset every night. If you want to enjoy a nice dinner beyond the park boundaries, or visit friends in the area, forget about it! One final negative-- when I visited, the park was literally overwhelmed with mosquitoes. So bad I had to wear a bug jacket to cover my head and upper body! In the future, I'll stay at the Kane Co. Forest Preserve campgrounds-- much MUCH nicer parks that have been built with RVers in mind. - WinnieViews

This park is a bit hard to locate. It is actually located in Warrenville. Any RV campground in the Chicago is a rarity so even with some drawbacks we were glad to find this one. It is a large, beautiful and heavily-wooded oasis in a pretty congested area. Staff very friendly. Restrooms were immaculate even with heavy usage on a holiday weekend. The drawbacks are: (1) it is only open for Fri. and Sat. night camping except on holidays, (2) no and or sewer connections and the few water spigots will not allow for a hose to be connected so to fill your tank requires carrying water in containers to your RV. Sites are level and very spacious with site #64 being best located for the restrooms with showers. One unusual plus is that those over 65 get 1 free weekend per year. We would camp here again. - judb

We've been visiting Blackwell for almost 40 years, but this is the first time we've camped there. We only live about 7 miles from there so it's an easy weekend. This is an oasis in the middle of suburbia. Heavily wooded sites, with level crushed gravel pads and now, electric at all sites, according to the attendant at the gatehouse. There are no water or sewer hookups, but there are spigots throughout the park. There is an adequate dump station, although it is not all that level, so your tanks may not fully empty. I remarked to my wife that whether we traveled three hours to Wisconsin or drove 7 miles to Blackwell, the end result is the same. Quiet camping in a lovely area. The one downside to this campground is that it's only open on weekends, except for holiday weeks when it's open for the entire week. Also making reservations entails calling the District HQ and booking over the phone. There is a three day reservation window which pretty much eliminates spur of the moment camping. The camping permits arrive by snail mail, so very last century. Still, it adds to the charm I suppose. We'll be back often. In the summer the crowds in Wisconsin can be frustrating, so this is a nice alternative if you just want a quiet weekend to camp without dealing with all the traffic. - baraff

We just stopped here overnight on our way east and I am glad that we only stayed overnight because I wouldn't want to be here for two nights. Very little improvements have been done in this park, just a grass area with hookups and poor gravel roads. Even the office is in poor shape. Grass has grown up about a foot high around a lot of the campers which means that they are there long term, mostly people that work in the area. I definitely wouldn't want to stay here again. - Linda Allan

This is not a campground. This is a transient facility for tradesmen, i.e. pipeline workers, carnies, etc.
Some people live here year round, by the looks of the sites and campers.
No restrictions on how old your rig is.. bring in your beast.
Rates to me are too high. take it or leave it attitude.
$700 a month for 50 amp with Water and sewer.
Gossipy workers/owners. People come in all hours of the night.
You will get a tongue lashing if you go over the speed limit of 10 MPH.
No campfires. No ice. Very cramped conditions. Many run down sites.
I-80 Road noise 24/7. No buffer for noise control.
I needed this facility as a place to stay while on contractual work in the area.
Otherwise, I would avoid. - josephine Plumber

This park has very unlevel, very close, sunny/open grass only sites. Very rude people as well as workers living there. Not worth the time or money to put up with drunks throwing things. Very scared! It was better to leave. - Sheilagramm

This is a tiny gem in Chicagoland with a lot going for it. Only five RV sites, plus tent sites and cabins. We have only camped here in off season, $50/nite in the summer is not worth it to us when we only live 6 miles away. But they have a lot of activities in the summer, check the website and reserve early. The good: 1. It is in a forest preserve with an extensive network of hiking trails and a paved bike path. 2. The Metra station is less than 3 miles away, you can be in downtown Chicago in less than one hour. 3. Restaurants and shopping nearby at Deer Park Town Center. 4. Propane, ice, other supplies are also very close. The bad: They need to work on their logistics. Much of the information on the website is wrong, like hours and phone numbers. On some sites, the fire ring is too close to your trailer for a safe campfire. The electric hook up is on the wrong side of the pad (really). No water hook ups (oddly, they have sewer though) and no spigots. You will be hauling water, unless their hose will reach your site. They told when we reserved that we could have it (hose) for our stay but then someone pounded on our door at 9:00 at night and told us that was wrong. He did allow us to fill our fresh water tank before he took it though. This place is geared for giving an outdoors experience to locals. They have classes like Camping 101, they rent equipment like bicycles and snowshoes and even a complete tent set up with sleeping bags. If you are not local, the main reason for going there is to have a convenient way to visit Chicago. - janci
