I have stayed here twice. It's an ok place but wasn't designed very good for long rigs. The signage coming in a poor as you have to register in the hotel and you need to pull in behind it. Lots of dirt where vehicles have sunk in the mud so be careful. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a nice park with concrete pads and lots of grass. Ours was probably the largest one in the park. Good 50 amps, water, no sewer. Clean dump station. Very quiet. Good roads with easy expressway accessibility. Casino is nearby with a shuttle. Free breakfast at their hotel. A reasonable drive into Chicago from here. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Casino is on property and is modern & clean. Water Park is next door.

Paved roads with pavement and gravel at sites. Very clean, grass mowed, surrounded by trees. Although the railroad is nearby, it was very quiet. there is WiFi, but it is stronger as you get closer to the hotel. The rate includes a hot breakfast, so it isn't a bad value. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We were pleasantly surprised by this RV Park. The campground was attractive with grass and trees, the sites were larger than expected, and there were several large grassy fields which were great for dog walks. Our back-in site just barely fit our 37' motorhome (all wheels on the concrete) with our car parked sideways in front. Anything longer should probably go for a pull-through, else your back wheels will be on the grass instead of concrete. We used this as a base to visit Chicago, since there are very few campgrounds anywhere near the city. The campground was eerily quiet--even though it was half full of RVs, we rarely saw or heard other people. Maybe they were all at the casino? Our AT&T and Verizon both worked well. We'd stay here again if we needed to stay in this area. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

You will drive through the hotel parking lot on the way to the RV park. Stop at the hotel and register at the front desk, since the office at the RV park appears to be permanently closed. Pluses: Long level paved pull-throughs (back-ins are shorter), good spacing with grass between sites, easy access to sites, quiet at night, complimentary breakfast at hotel, shuttle to casino (which we didn't use). Minuses: No sewer (dump behind hotel), no wi-fi, no internet, high price for what you get. There are restrooms/showers (very clean during our stay) and a laundry room with two washers and two dryers. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The sites in this RV park are the only positive for this park. About 1/3 of the sites are pull-through and the rest are back-ins. The sites are an adequate size with "grass" between the sites. That is it for the good. The sites have W&E hookups but no sewer or cable connections. There is no internet available in the park. Most sites appear to be satellite friendly. The bathrooms, showers and laundry were filthy (maintenance cutbacks) and having to check in at the hotel (to save money by not staffing the RV park office) is a hassle. There is a dump behind the hotel but you make have to wait in line if anyone else is leaving when you do. The price is ridiculous for a park with only W&E, dirty facilities, and no other amenities. Not worth the stop unless you want to be near the casino. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Fairly nice sites, but high dollar for only water and electric, and especially for a casino park. No sewer or cable. Very poor signage to actually get to park. Hut was closed at park so had to circle back and check in at hotel. Had to put down a $25 security deposit (for what?). Had to go back in to hotel to "check out" in the morning to get deposit back and of course, now need to monitor cc account to make sure it happens. Probably won't stay here again. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

I gave this park an 8 because it did not have sewer hookups at each site. Reasons to stay here: close to I-80, easy access in and out, concrete site on level ground, part of a casino property, shuttle service to casino, decent restaurant, and easy access to sewer dump behind the hotel. You could drive to sewer easily and return to site. We stayed one night. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We planned on staying here but decided not to after experiencing a very rude front office staff member on the phone. I called around 6pm to see if they had openings for a weekend and was told they did and to call back in the morning to reserve when I had my credit card ready. I called back in the morning and was told to call after 4pm. When I mentioned I was told to call back in the morning I was greeted with "that was me but I am busy so call back after 4pm or don't show up". We have selected the 'don't show up" option as our feeling is if someone is that rude before you even give them your money it is only going to get worse...

Rate shown is based on weekly rate for a pull-through site. Park is nicely maintained and is located just beyond the parking lot for the casino and next to the hotel. Roads are paved and sites are concrete pads. Back-ins are a little small, especially for motorhomes. Pull-throughs are ample length for the largest of rigs. Lots of space in between sites, all grass with some shade trees throughout the park. The negatives, and the reason for my lower rating, are no sewer hookups (but they do have a dump station) and no Wi-Fi. You do get a free continental breakfast each morning if you want to walk up to the hotel. The do provide a shuttle van to the casino. It is not a resort and they charge too much for not having full hookups. That being said it is a very nice park to explore the Chicago area. Beware there are train tracks in the distance and the trains are constant and do use their horns. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Leave it to PN Gaming (Hollywood Casino's parent) to jack up the prices and reduce the services. I thought is was too expensive just 2 years ago when they charged around $30 for a W&E site with no amenities. The park once had cable TV, WIFI, and check in at the RV park office. The cement, pull through sites are fairly long, wide, and level, but certainly not worth $50. Maintenance in the park has also been reduced - the bathrooms were filthy.

Park is little more than the remains of the workers camp left over from construction of the hotel and casino. There are no full hookups, no cable and no WiFi. There's a huge parking lot where trucks are allowed to overnight but NOT RV"s. Instead we are relegated to this so-called Resort. They make a big deal of the free breakfast in the hotel but that's not much value unless you're feeding a scout troop. And for this they charge an exce$$ive $39 (plus $10 more if you want a pull thru). About twice what it's worth. Casino is the draw, not the RV park. Next time through we'll go to the nearby WalMart. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice campground. Not hard to get to. Follow signs for Hollywood casino. Not terribly far off the interstate. Sites are spacious with lots of grass. Showers and bathrooms are small, but very clean. Only one bath facility at campground and if your site is in the back, it can be quite a walk. Check-in was easy. Sites are level and padded. Free breakfast at hotel which is a short walk away. Campground is ideal for a weekend at the casino if you're a gambler. Shuttle will pick you up at your site and take you the short 2 blocks to the front door if you don't feel up for the walk. My thoughts when booking this campground were that it would be busy, loud and a city like setting, but I couldn't be more wrong. It is quiet and tucked away behind the Hollywood casino facilities. Two reasons its not a "10" in my opinion are the lack of sewer hook-up and the rule against fire pits. There is a dump station conveniently placed behind the hotel as you depart. We would stay again. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Check in was easy in the hotel lobby. Sites had cement pads, level and in good repair. Campground has pleasant appeal and very quiet. Showers and bathhouse were clean. Air antennae had over 60 channels. Lack of Wi-Fi was a real negative. I feel the campground is a little expensive for a resort with no pool, no Wi-Fi, no cable, but, I would stay again.

We stayed in this park for 4 nights because we were required to find a place near Chicago for a family reunion. The price is outrageous for what is essentially dry camping. No sewer dump, no WiFi, no cable. (I have an auto satellite, but no local channels this far from home.) The laundry and shower facilities probably would serve about 15 campers: 2 showers, 2 washers, 2 dryers. The only reason I gave it an elevated rating of 1 is because of the beauty of the Casino and RV park grounds. We camped at Hollywood Casino Hotel & RV Resort in a Motorhome.
