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

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

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

Check in with hotel BEFORE you park. They made us move. The park is fine. It's fairly large and was pretty empty when we stayed. Site has E, water until Oct. 15, and a dump and fill station by the hotel. You get hotel breakfast (not great). Our price was based on the water being shut off. Summer price is higher. Our problem was with the registration process. Normally, you find a spot, set up, and then check in, especially when the park is practically empty. The signs say to check in with the hotel with no other details. There is not a convenient place to park an RV in the hotel parking lot, so we went to the CG, found a spot and set up. When we registered with the hotel, they assigned us a site number. We said, "Oh, well, we're already set up in this other spot, so can we just stay there?" The answer was, "No." They made us move. There were literally 80 sites, 5 of which were filled, and they made us move to different spot. We were only there for the night, coming from Madison, WI on our way to Grand Rapids, MI, and we were tired and very not happy about the move. We got over it and decided to blow off some steam at the casino. There's a sign for a poker room, which leads to nowhere. There isn't one. An attendant laughed and said, "the funny thing is that we still had it listed on our website last month." It isn't funny, it's bad business; take the sign down. They do give you a sort of lotto ticket when signing up for a frequent player card where you can win free slot play. We had to call an attendant twice to figure out how to use the promo money, and we both have college degrees. The process is unnecessarily complicated. Also, everything is way overpriced. I'm not joking when I say that they offer just a hot dog for $5.99, and the couple of beers we had were way off the mark too. - Unknown_Normal

You basically get a space that's convenient to go into Chicago. Basically a space with electric and water. It's clean with good bathrooms. - har-fl

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting family. We had a pull-thru with w/e and it was plenty long enough. The back in sites looked fine for our 38' fiver also. Free basic breakfast and close to shopping and restaurants. Clean restrooms. Site surface was a concrete pad. Lot had a picnic table. We will stay here again when in town. - miller.va

Leisure Lake is a large, family-friendly, gated place to stay, IF you can get past the reservation process (difficult to get a hold of the reservation person / sporadic and curt responses to calls & emails, but in his defense, he is kept extremely busy with maintenance and upkeep around the park). We did find the office personnel to be helpful and friendly; however, they do not handle phone calls to the resort or seem to help with the advance-reservation process. Perhaps they need to assist him with this??? This is a membership resort which rents sites not occupied by members; many members seem to be there full-time, based on the accumulation of items around their rigs. Gravel roads and gravel sites (at least our back-in site was) with picnic tables and fire rings surround a centrally located catch-and-release fishing lake. Although the sites are closely spaced, with grass between the sites, there is quite a bit of open, grassy space within the park. All the grass in the park is kept neatly cut on a weekly basis. Amenities abound at the campground: Paddle boats are available for use on the fishing lake; several fishing docks surround the lake; a separate swimming pond with a sandy beach and picnic areas; beach volleyball court; basketball court; putt-putt golf; tennis courts; children's playgrounds; large, heated swimming pool; community BBQ's; weekend rock concerts; laundry/shower facility; exercise room; covered community area; special events hall, and a small store with RV essentials located in the registration office. We used Leisure Lake as a home-base for visits to Chicago and the surrounding area, and because of its convenience to the city, would stay here again, should we return to Chicagoland. - HRTravelers

We were looking forward to staying here - but are quite disappointed. The site has very little shade. More importantly the staff could not be less involved or interested in us. I phoned trying to get the wifi code and the man who answered was actually rude in giving me the code. They have no interest in helping us find out about things to do in Chicago. Before we arrived I had called ahead to confirm our reservation and asked about transportation to Chicago. The answer was "we don't know". Would not stay here again. - Funpro

Even though it's a membership park we checked with them and they will rent to non-members if you call ahead and they have sites. We asked for and received a pull-through for the one night. Site 105 was provided and wow, the chalky road dust from other vehicles going back and forth was enough to turn our truck and RV from the original color to white. Anyone know a good RV wash? - Mr. Camper
