Another nice weekend! This is our 6th year going for Labor Day weekend. We had our regular lake front site. Very clean campground with lots to do for everyone. All hookups were perfect. Pool was nice, and warm. Kids had a blast as usual. We will be back again next year. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Sunset Lakes is a destination RV park for families. It's pricey -- base rate is $50+/night. We paid more because our grandkids came and set up a tent. This park has tons of amenities like a large pool, multiple game rooms, horseshoes, tennis, basketball, canoes, paddleboats, license-free fishing, a nice mini golf course, organized activities on weekends, and more. Everything is included in the price. They had a great fireworks show on the 4th July. This place was packed for the holiday weekend and the kids had a blast! Sites vary from grassy w/e to concrete pad FHU. Negatives -- out-dated showers, wifi is not free, some sites are close together. ATT had a weak signal and Verizon had a strong signal. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground with paved roads, perfect for bike riding. We had a lakefront site on the main lake, very level and grassy. Electric was good. Large heated pool and nice mini golf. This year was our 4th year and we will be back again next year. Always a great and relaxing time. Access at back of campground to the Rock River and a dirt, bike/golf cart trail. Also boat launch access. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Travel Trailer.

While I agree with other reviewers this campground has nice amenities, I would hardly call it a "resort." We stayed here for Labor Day weekend, and I wasn't sure if I was in a hillbilly trailer park, on the west side of Chicago, or somewhere in Mexico. Plenty of loud golf carts and ATV's, a crowded pool with lifeguards not paying attention, and campsites that are right on top of each other. We would definitely not stay here again. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice pull through for big rigs. A lot of stuff for kids. If you have to use the dump station on a busy weekend, get up early. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is one of the nicest RV resorts we've stayed in! Has everything we look for including plenty of room between level big rig sites, easy in/out, and tons of things for the kids to do. Their rates are steep but they discount for GS and everything is included including paddleboats, mini-golf, canoes, fishing, pool, and rec equipment. The mini-golf course was in good condition; a rarity among RV parks. There are activities for all age ranges. Some sites are heavily shaded while others give satellite access. The swimming pool was much larger than most parks and in excellent shape as well. We loved this RV park! We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nice campground with huge pool. Lots of space here with several fishing ponds. Would have rated this higher if it had a fenced in pet walk and more than 1 restroom facility which is co-located with the pool, camp store and grill, so you share it with all the visitors. Price is just an estimate. I can't recall what I paid. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Motorhome.

We found this park due to our membership in RPI and enjoyed our three night stay there. The park is full of seasonal residents who have fixed up their sites. Generally speaking the remaining sites are level but somewhat small. If you have neighbors it will feel pretty crowded. There's a big pool and beautiful activity center and some pretty lakes for fishing. The place is surrounded by huge fields of corn and beans. Considering that this is Illinois, they are pleasant enough surroundings. Our rate is the RPI rate. We will stay there again when passing through the area.

I believe this campground to be a very nice one but I would like to make some suggestions; The entry to the park should be be better marked. It is too easy to miss the turn into the park office and end up on a dead end lot with 38' of RV and 20' of toad. The need to be very specific about what you require for a space and verify each point or you may end up with a site that is not a pull through and be forced to unhook your toad and regroup. The investment in the park made to facilities is probably the reason for the high rates. NO Wi-Fi available, No cable available, no sewer at our site and 30 amp not 50 amp service was $44. I would only come here again if I spoke with a RV knowledgeable person that could provide me with a site that met my request and all that after I had won a lottery. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Motorhome.

Stayed here again for Labor Day weekend. It rained all day sat. The nice thing was on sun. The ground was dry, great drainage! We had a lakefront site. The campground is nice with all paved roads. Paddle boats and canoes were included in fee. Park is well taken care of. Due to the rain we found that the very small (for the size of the campground) game room needs to be bigger! We have reservations for next Labor Day already. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Travel Trailer.

We typically stay here once a year for the 4th of July weekend. They have a very nice fireworks display over the lake. The sites on the expansion area a bit larger and not so crowed as the sites up front. Lots of things to do. Planned activities for all ages. DJ on Saturday nights and movies in the large indoor hall. We spent Labor day this year as well. Rained a lot, but the resort made sure the kids had something to do. Clean, great food area for purchase, game room and awesome restrooms. We will always spend July 4th here. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a lovely park, with truly great people at check-in! Friendly, well-staffed, very organized. They have a great community hall, where many activities are organized - we participated in the Friday night all-you-can-eat fish fry and it was fantastic. Nice adult only book room too. The pool is splendid, with very competent young life guards. We saw one ask a family to leave, when the kids were out of hand. The showers and bathrooms are awful - so outdated. Feels creepy. Game room for kids. It's really geared toward families and is perfect for that. Too big for us and after a few days we moved on. Our $20 fee was through RPI.

First the good: large park with lots of amenities, well maintained except see below. There is a very large pool, mini golf, arcade, etc. Now the BAD: There were MANY uncapped sewer hookups at near-by campsites. The stench made it nearly impossible to be outside at our campsite. The pool and store hours were only from noon - 8pm. This made it really hard to use the store and buy a golf ball needed for mini-golf. We expected generous pool hours like most campgrounds given the high rate. The hours were not posted on web site so we were surprised. They also allow day passes to the pool for non-campers. The internet is through a third party. It worked fine but only works for ONE computer at a time and is expensive ($5 per day). Finally, there is really only 1 lake plus a series of ditches with water. There is no swimming allowed in the lake. Fine if you like the quiet and want to stay in your camper. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

After reading previous review, my family decided to come to this campground anyway. We totally loved it. The fish fry on Friday night was excellent! There is a lot to do. Once you pay for your site, everything in the park is free. Nice paved streets where you could ride a bike. We will definitely stay here again. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Motorhome.
