1 Park near Elgin, Illinois
May 2016 - $25.00
Stayed here in May 2016 at the beginning of the camping season. It's a nice little RV campground right where you wouldn't expect one. The people from Kane Country running the campground are very, very nice. The campground is in the middle of a forest preserve, although most of the camp sites are asphalt slabs with no trees around them. None of the sites have sewer hook-up but there are two dump stations, and they are free to use if you're a registered camper. The sites did have 50amp and 30amp service, along with a water hook-up. The price for camping is cheap- $25 if you're a Kane County, IL, non-resident, $15 if you are.
There are several walking trails in the preserve. The big one is gravel and about 2.5 miles around the loop. We saw deer, otters, and hawks while walking the trail, which took about an hour. There are some smaller walking trails that meander through the prairies and woods.
I'd highly recommend coming, but if you have kids just understand that this isn't a KOA. There's no pool, no activities, or anything like that. It's just a place to hook up your RV and enjoy the preserve.
Although I gave value, service, and cleanliness 5 stars, I gave the campground an overall rating of 8 stars only because outside of the walking trails, there wasn't much to do, and the RV sites were sort of close together with no trees to screen you from your neighbors. Also, the fishing pond was pretty weed infested and we didn't see or catch any fish. - ualdriver

Loved the park. Wide open, lots of space between the sites and asphalt pads. Work campers very friendly. GC very neat and clean. Only complaint is the water. It is full of iron and very metallic tasting. We recommend you have a very good filter for your water or fill your water tank before you go and don't use their water. - Peter K

We love this park. The sites are large & level-all asphalted. It is quiet & peaceful here. Satellite & over the air signal are easy to get. It is about the only campground in the area. The closest other campground is about 30 miles from Elgin. We lived in the Elgin area for 50 years & staying here makes it easy to visit friends & family. There are two drawbacks. There is no sewer hook up so we have to move to dump when our tanks are full. Your stay is limited to 14 days in a 21 day period. We stay here every summer. - Connie's Co-Owner
