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 welcomed the "adventure". We felt the location warranted the discomfort. We are generally comfortable staying at Walmarts, casinos and truck stops as necessary. In attempting to use the online system to purchase "tickets" (one ticket for each 24 hour period), we had tech problems. Customer Service was responsive, resolved the situation, issued our tickets and refunded a duplicate charge to our credit card. So far, so good. The day before we were to check-in, we drove to the lot in our toad to check for low bridges and preview the layout. The lot attendant told us the lot was closed and that, if we showed up the next day, we would be turned way regardless of our protest that we had prepaid tickets. He suggested we call his mgr. We did and never received a return call. We decided not to go. We did not want to be stuck in downtown Chicago with a 40' rig plus toad. We contacted Customer Service and were granted a full refund. I suspect the "closed lot" tied into the the fact that there was a Bears Monday Night Football game two days out (not that makes it ok). Bottom line - this is not an RV park and doesn't act like one. We would be willing to try it again one day but would have a contingency plan. - GottaGoNow

We decided to give this campground a try for its location. Despite all of the outdated reviews we gave it a try. I'm glad we did. We had no issues. It was quiet, relaxing, and exactly what we needed. - AdventureIsMyMiddleName

While the setting for this campground is excellent, the execution is just shy of horrible! The only reason we stayed at this park was its proximity to family and friends. I would never do so again. Go across the border to Indiana, do not come here! The bathrooms are all but unusable, and my wife has refused to use the shower in the ladies room. I didn't think the previous reviews could be true, but believe them. - Phil_S

This is a very rustic campground with no paved roads or concrete pads. We were very disappointed in the general conditions present and the mud was so bad from the rain the previous day that we nearly got our dually stuck twice just getting to the site. We opted to leave and stay at another park due to the conditions we found in the winter time. It may be more appealing in the summer months, but we cannot recommend it during any kind of wet weather. - RVGFulltimers

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

The rate is for a 50 amp site with water/sewer. To be perfectly honest, given the name of the campground "Bible Retreat", we were quite hesitant initially to book a site at this campground, never having stayed here before. But the campground was exactly where we wanted to stop for the night so we went ahead. However, this campground is a real gem, very spacious sites, quiet, manicured lawns, polite and courteous hosts, and absolutely no religious signs, discussions or anything else that we may have felt awkward. The campground is located well off the main drag, US 41, but easily accessed and in a really nice area. Do be aware that there is a railroad track about a city block to the west of the park, but we were told, and we now confirm that there are no trains at night. . This campground is now on a select list of locations at the top of our list of stop-overs. - Johnson's

Hookups are shared so you may need extensions. Our power cord just reached. Safe area to leave trailer when we spent a night in Chicago. Host was gone so we checked in at office but had to find it first because map given to you at the office. - sp123

Stayed 4 days while visiting family in the area. This is a very quiet park on the grounds of a large Christian conference center on Cedar Lake. Road and sites were gravel. Sites were level. Utilities worked well, but the locations for water and electric were a little strange (shared posts) so we needed our electric and water extensions to reach. Good WiFi - the best we've experienced in our 3 month trip! No cable. Lots of trees on most sites, so you've got shade, but satellite would be difficult on most sites. Restrooms and showers convenient and clean. No laundry. Close walk to lake and small beach. Very quiet at night. Someone else mentioned the railroad tracks and train. We counted 2 per day - one in the morning and one in the evening....that's it. Very friendly staff. A peaceful, restful place. We will definitely return when back in the area. - FireFlyer

The place is huge. Has pool, lake, tennis, everything. I'm sure it's a happening place in summer but very poorly maintained. Big potholes in the very bad travel roads. Mostly occupied by seasonal and permanent residents that have old decrepit RVs and misc structures. The only WiFi is at the main office. Grass is overgrown and our site was loaded with dog poop. But there is a big field where we threw a ball for the dogs. - User2989

We stayed here for my son to have a good time at a campground designed for kids. Unfortunately, mini golf closed at 6:30. Which I understand, however, the pool was for 21 and up, and the main station smelled like a bar. - slinke

Very run down. This mighta been a great place 35 years ago but it's obvious nothing has been reinvested in it. Way to many long-termers with all the junk that they accumulate if allowed to. Way to many old RVs that should be in the junk yard by now. The trailer next to me has a red tag hanging on the door. Streets are badly neglected. Jellystone Inc should pull any affiliation from this place. Surprised they haven't. We are here at the height of vacation season and took what was available. Otherwise we wouldn't have considered it. They charged $16.00 for electric and $16.00 for service for a four night stay on top of the $38. I requested a sat TV friendly site ahead of time and they accommodated me with that. - wazafarmer
