It is easy to get in/out of this park. Roads are dirt and very dusty. Must be a Good Sam member to stay here. You park on a concrete pad but stone leading to it. Small concrete patio with picnic table. Utilities worked fine. WiFi worked well for us but there were not many people around. Verizon signal good. Our site was just big enough for our 40 ft fifth wheel. Clear line for satellite at our site. Gated park and you are issued a key card when checking in. Nice beach on a separate little pond from the lake. Saw quite a few people fishing in the lake. We would stay here again. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This is an amazing campground for a single night of for a long-term stay. Although we did not take advantage of them, there were activities galore. The owners/staff was excellent. We were in site 144 and had an unobstructed view of the lake. The campground needs improved signage to lead people in of either I-80 or I-55. Once on Frontage Road it's a piece of cake to get to the campground but finding Frontage is a bit winding route. The internal roads are wide but can be a bit dusty. Surprisingly, we were amazed that everyone seemed to obey the 10 MPH speed limit. Our one complaint was that when we arrived at our campsite, it was littered with cigarette butts! Campers should be advise to clean up after themselves and sites inspected after campers leave. We would go back here in a heartbeat, however! Well worth the value. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Motorhome.

We only stayed here as a stopover for one night. I called the morning of our arrival and had no problem getting a site. It is off season, so the pool, beach area and activities were all closed, but during the summer, I think it is a very busy place with a lot if things to do. Looks like a wonderful family place. Laundry room was roomy and very clean. WiFi was good, and local channels were plentiful. We could not get our satellite to work in our spot but since we were here for only one night, it was not a big deal. The sites were concrete and grass, spacious and the park was very clean. Staff were very friendly. Campstore was sparse, but again, it is very late in their season. The only reason I didn't give it a perfect score was the very dusty gravel roads. I imagine in the heat of a dry summer, it is a nightmare. Most people adhered to the 10mph speedlimit, but it still kicked up tons of dust!! Overall, a very nice campground surrounding a nice lake. Would definitely return. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Motorhome.

Let me preface this review by saying that we got here on a cold, windy, raining afternoon and I did not get a chance to walk around this large park until it was almost dark. So, my comments are not all going to be backed by a clear visual inspection of the facilities and amenities. Like the other fellow who reviewed this park in October, our stay was during the off season when the park was fairly empty and many things were no longer in service. We had a long, fairly level, gravel, FHU site. Most sites are FHU, but there are about 50 with just W&E on the north and south sides of the park. We had to pull all the way forward in the site to get satellite service but that made the sewer unreachable. Once we are ready to leave in the morning, we will just back up and dump then Most sites are back-ins and apparently seasonal/extended stay sites. There is no cable TV, but there are about 10 over the air channels. We had no problems with their 802.11 network. As others have noted, there are a ton of recreational facilities: a very large pool, a fishing lake with piers and boat dock, a swimming pond with a beach, tennis courts, basketball courts, volleyball courts, horseshoe pits, a large recreation center, playgrounds, a large pavilion, and a mini-golf course. I cannot vouch for the condition of these facilities because of how dark it was when I finally saw them. I had no issues with the man (owner?) at check-in. We had no issues with too many rules (No long list was mentioned when we checked in - what problems are 2 oldies going to cause in the off season?) or dusting roads (It was raining!). This park may deserve a higher rating, but I couldn't see the park well enough or experience the park when it is going full tilt. I do agree with the prior reviewer that staying here would be a completely different experience/park in the summer. I saw no sign of recycling in the park. Once again, we did not "camp here. We stayed here in a RV site. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Motorhome.

This is a large park, with mostly long term visitors. It is gated. The roads are quite dusty, being gravel, and muddy when it rains. The owner is kind of rude, but check-in staff was friendly. The sites were level, dirt, and tight, mostly back-ins. The park needs a lot of updating and some TLC. The park is located very near the interstate in many spots, so it is quite noisy. There is a private lake for fishing, but you must buy a permit at the office. Some of the permanent RV's and sites are trashy and unkept and need cleaning up. There are pages of rules that you are supposed to abide by, but very few are enforced. There is a laundry on site, but only four washers and dryers for such a large park. They need more. Also there are no trash bins near any of the sites and trash must be carried over to the entrance of the park to be disposed of. We stayed here in a 39-foot fifth wheel, and would NOT stay here again. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Great place, fishing lake, swimming lake, pool. A lot of seasonal and construction workers but all was quiet. Owner runs a tight ship. Only downside - road is extremely dusty, especially in the overnight area since all traffic goes past these sites. Would and have returned over the years. Would give it a 10 with paved interior roads. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Motorhome.

The only reason I give them a 6 is because the property is gated. The female staff member was very helpful but the manager/owner was unfriendly. Our site had a concrete pad too small for our 40. In order to get my jacks on the concrete, I had to use leveling pads under my tag axle. Our site had a bit of litter left on the site. After a heavy rain, the gravel road was a mess. Their are a lot of long term units and some were in very bad shape. We will NOT stay here again. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Motorhome.

Our site was level, good hookups. WiFi was fair. Good Verizon cell and broadband. Sites are narrow. Most of the park full of seasonal guests. Many are well-kept. Others full of junk, despite innumerable rules. I-55 highway noise pretty bad. May be best option near Chicago, but not a great park. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We find it hard to call this campground a resort. Campground did not have our reservation when we arrived. However, the staff was friendly and did provide us a campsite. This style of bookkeeping concerns us, as if it was a holiday week we wouldn’t have been provided a campsite. The campground is very close to 2 major freeways, which procedure a lot noise inside the park. Many campers were long term, and these RVs appeared rough and presented a negative look on the park. Arrived at our site which needed much cleaning. The fire pit AND the site were full of trash. Campsites are close together. Many of the buildings need much TLC, including the bathrooms. DirecTV (free standing satellite) had no issue getting a signal. Verizon phone was able to get 4G. Wi-Fi was weak and not reliable. Campground is one hour from Chicago. Grocery stores and dining are about 15 minutes from campground. Campground includes mini golf course, lake, clubhouse and beach lake. Roads were wide and provide easy access into your site. Many sites include full trees, so if you have a roof top satellite, inform the office during checkup or when making reservations. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We enjoyed our stay for almost a month. Gated grounds and easy access once inside. Most roads are gravel/base and good, but mixed with fine dust. It gets on and in everything, but for few days after a rain, no dust. Sites are mostly level and gravel with shade and grass. Water, power, sewer, and Wi-Fi were up to specs and convenient. Always several staff busy with upkeep and they were constructing 40+ new sites. Friendly neighbors and plenty of entertainment for kids. Staff was friendly, accommodating and kept the grounds tidy. It is on our return list. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Motorhome.

Had a great stay. Went into Chicago for a few days and manager was very helpful on how to take the train into city so we did not have to drive. Beautiful park that is well maintained. WiFi worked good. If in area will stay again. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Travel Trailer.

Good clean campground as close to Chicago as you can get. Must be a GS member or purchase membership to stay here. They prefer you to call a few days beforehand but accept drive ins if they have room. Wifi worked well. Dust wasn't an issue as it rained several times during our stay. Rates are $36/day, $217/week, $750/month (no metered elec). Both Verizon and ATT had strong signals. I've visited this CG several times and they continue to make small improvements. We'll be back!

Rate reflects Good Sam discount for a 30-amp, W/E/S back-in site. We did not have a problem with dust during our 2 day stay. The campground staff were more than helpful at check-in and after. When I had a problem with the electrical hook-up, they promptly came to my rescue and repaired MY PROBLEM without any hassle. Thanks! Good level sites, fair over-the-air television, and very good Wi-Fi reception. While we did not use the showers or restrooms, they appeared adequate. Unlike a previous review, we had great water pressure and found the directions right on. We would stay here again. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a membership only park. You can get a site with a Good Sam's membership. Big open areas for activities including a nice lake and wide open fields for your pets. Pull throughs are narrow with not a lot of room between sites. The management team do make you feel a little less than welcome because of their "regulars" who stay there. Not very friendly and I probably will book another campground next time. We camped at Leisure Lake Membership Resort in a Motorhome.
