We camped here for a month and loved it. We were parked at the end of the row so had plenty of space. So nice to not be in the middle of retail madness yet only 20 minutes to the grocery and mall. We were here before the peak season began and enjoyed the quiet atmosphere. Super friendly staff and helpful with any needs. Plaza has a great laundry, gym, and game room along with many other cool things. Very clean showers and restrooms. Roads and sites are paved which is perfect for rollerblading and biking. Also, has a nice playground for the kids to enjoy. Beautiful view of the lake. Hopefully, we are back in the area. Would love to stay again. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This gated park was very clean and was easy to maneuver around with a large rig. The office staff was super friendly, as were the people who worked on the grounds. We stayed here for several weeks during August and September, and chose this particular place because of all the amenities and activities it listed online. We arrived on a weekend and there was a ton going on and we thought it was perfect. But then on Monday we found out that everything is closed during the week. The snack bar and store opened on Friday night and closed on Sunday afternoon, and the hours on those days were quite limited. From Sunday afternoon to Friday afternoon it was like a ghost town, which is something the kids and I did not enjoy. There are many, many insects, especially mosquitos and flies, which made it almost impossible to sit or play outside after 5 pm. And if you need anything, it is a thirty minute ride to the nearest grocery store. If you have kids, this is a great place for a weekend stay, but not an extended one. We camped here in a fifth wheel. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Thank god for Coast to Coast or we would not have stayed here for $72 a night. Nothing here worth that much money. The grounds are very well kept but the staff can not keep up with the trash that some day use people leave behind. The internet is fair at best even in the Plaza where they day the have free internet. If you can get connected you are doing good. The sites are narrow with a grassy area in between you and the other campers. The lake is pretty if you look past the over growth of algae that is growing on all of the ponds and the large lake. We were in a 31 ft motor home with a 20 ft tow, the site was very large and could handle us. Nice park but if it was not for Coast to Coast I would not stay here. We camped at Sunset Lakes Resort in a Motorhome.

This campground is awesome. There is a fantastic building that is a store, restaurant, bingo hall, arcade, shower, pool building. It's a great building. However, $72 a night is a ridiculous rate to pay. We have 2 kids that were over 5. They were $6 a day extra. For what? We did two rounds of mini golf and a 10-minute ride on a paddle boat. (By the way - bring your golf ball. They don't provide one for you.) AND the rule of not bring your own firewood. *sigh* Can you please have dry wood then? Nothing but smoky lame fires all over the place. Our bundles were GREEN and very damp. The campground is great - but we won't be going back. Way too expensive. The kids did have fun fishing and frog hunting. We chose a river site - site 89. It was nice. However, across the road - those sites were very skinny. I would not stay there.

Nice place. Used Coast To Coast extra for 50 amp. $10 for 3 days of Wi-Fi, they had different rates dependent of your length of stay. We found out that the signal strength was good enough for a tablet but decent for a laptop. They do have a free Wi-Fi in the clubhouse area that is fairly strong. We were there on a Monday through Thursday so it was fairly empty, but I imagine it is crowded on the weekends. Sites are small, but big enough for my 34 ft RV.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
