This is a huge park! If you're road tripping and need a stop for the night, it's likely they will have a spot! They are over 400 acres and about 400 sites, although only one area is geared for short term stays. They have pools, a nice store and really nice, very helpful people. We needed a site where we did not have to back up (trailer) and they put us in a field which was perfect for our dog to run! We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The campground was very poorly maintained with very rough and pot holed roads, the roads were very dusty and heavily traveled with speeding golf carts and off road ATV type vehicles, woke up the next morning with 1/8" of dust on RV and truck. Fire works all evening until they either ran out or got tired of them. the sites were very close, for what should have been maybe 3 sites they had 6 if there had been a camper beside us we could not have put out our awning. There appeared to be no rules; when asked another camper said others have been told if you don't like it leave. Well I will not be back. Keep on looking. do not stop here. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

The "guard house" was abandoned, the roads almost impossible, the site electric threatened electrocution, the water stank, and we didn't feel safe leaving the coach for an excursion. Very rough people as "greeters", no site map, and we feared for our safety -slept with the pistol loaded right next to my head. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Was just staying the night. Camped near entrance gate as I didn't feel like spending the time to drive back to regular camping area. (Long day, 427 miles.) This was my choice as staff offered the regular lots for me to use. Staff was friendly. Had water & electric. Wi-Fi never worked where I was located. Looked like the router I was connected to needed to be re-booted to the Internet. If Wi-Fi worked and maybe if I had seen rest of campground I would feel comfortable with a 7 or 8 rating. Would stay again and would probably go to regular camping area. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

The roads are extremely bad. If that was not enough the water stinks so bad that you can not use it. This is a very poorly run camp. Looks to have potential, but will never make it. Do not recommend this camp. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Stayed 4 nights. Bathrooms are pretty rough and neither shower was working in the closest men's room when we arrived. They did get one of the 2 showers working within our stay, but water is stinky. Management is very disorganized and most events were late starting. The pool was completely unsupervised and there were hoards of people swimming in street clothes, eating in the pool, and leaving trash all over. The fishing pond is a joke, but you can fish in the swimming pond. 2 playgrounds and lots of space to drive golf carts/atvs. About a half hour drive to Starved Rock state park. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is a campground with huge potential. That potential, however, is far from being realized. According to one worker I talked with, the owner refuses to invest any money in the park. He said that recent events hold out hope for improvement. In the meantime, the roads are extremely rough. The water is very hard; it smells and tastes terrible. The restrooms had new tile and counter tops, but the old fixtures were re-used even though they desperately needed to be replaced. Restrooms were not clean, and there was zero privacy for using the showers which really were not useable anyways. Staff was friendly and pleasant and helpful. The campground itself was quite nice with lots of grass and many trees. Sites were gravel. My back-in was over 60 feet long and had a new sewer connection. Rate is for Coast to Coast. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We have been here several times, because our friends are in a seasonal site, and we usually go on Halloween weekends. The roads are terrible. They are very dusty, and have loads of potholes. I know of a kid there who once had to go to the hospital because he crashed, due to the excessive potholes. The water is atrocious, and the pool is nasty. The rates are much too high for the low-quality campground. I would not suggest going at all. Our first visit was in 2009. We traveled in a Travel Trailer.

Our family camped here and we were extremely disappointed. The roads in the campground are in need of repair. The campground is located near the Illinois River, and in the fall this area is beautiful. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

When we stayed here in late August, the pool was closed to "lower expenses." The Swimming Lake was a slough full of weeds and algae. The roads are connected potholes with a bridge that looks like it could collapse at any moment. The store was closed, even though we were here during its limited open period. This looks like it was a great resort in it's day, maybe 20 or 30 years ago. Now it felt like a old run down mobile home park. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We are in search of a campground to set a "permanent" park model someday in the near future. We loved the fact that it is a HUGE area though we were sort of annoyed that he put us in the same general area with 2 other tent campers instead of on the other side of the bathrooms where there was no one. The one huge family was quite annoying playing their rap music at 3am; the campground did nothing to stop them. A bunch of permanents had young kids riding gas-powered golf carts back and forth at all hours of the night too. Then during the day, they found it fun to try to spin out right in front of our tent and run each other off the road. Maybe the campground should provide a phone# to report such annoyances? Plus, for such a large, quiet, campground, they really should limit the gas-powered use after a certain time of day or only allow battery operated. Also, the adults who drive them are VERY rude. My kids and I almost got run over as we were walking through the grass to our tent. The bathrooms were ok though the women bathroom didn't even have soap so I left my own for them. The men bathroom had a soap dispenser but my husband said it was broken. They do not clean the bathrooms daily, we camped for 2 nights and there was still toilet paper everywhere. The shower water was nice and hot and the sulfur smell did subside(and seemed to make my hair nice and soft). Also, for the good-quality toilets that they have, we still had trouble flushing them on the first try. I found that most people won't flush them twice an no one checked on them. The pool was very small as was the play-park area. We didn't get to go to either because we got rained on and spent most of the first day drying things out. It would be nice to be given a clothesline between the trees or have them set posts for something like this as well. In all, we had an enjoyable experience and will probably return some day but need to meet more of the locals, who didn't seem too friendly to tent campers, before we make a decision to stay as a permanent. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Tent.

We stayed at this park for the July 4th weekend and it was horrible. The access roads were one big pothole. The dust stirred up by driving on them, was everywhere. The kids were out of control driving the golfcarts/4 wheelers. One thought it was fun to spin around in front of the bathrooms. We had a sprinkler on the road to try to keep down the dust. The sites we were on, were new gravel so the trailer settled the 3 days we were here. One good thing was that the pool was nice. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

I camped here with a group of friends, so didn't really expect much as far as entertainment and activities for kids. It's a good thing too because there wasn't any. If you're looking for a HUGE campground with plenty of privacy (with the exception of the seasonals which were segregated from the over nighters, it was pretty much dead), this is the place to be. I was disappointed with the restroom facilities. They "felt" dirty and could definitely use an upgrade. Also, the water had a strong sulfur smell. The sites were definitely not level. On the other hand, the staff couldn't have been more friendly. Would I stay here again? Probably not...not that it was a bad experience, I'm just looking for better. We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This is absolutely the worst park we have ever been in, both in geography and customer service. While there are some sites on the hill with space and trees, to get there you need to cross a concrete pad which can be flooded by the creek/stream below it. We selected and were approved to set-up on one of the front sites: which was bare and boggy but did have utilities and didn't require crossing the "bridge". Four days into our stay we were informed at 6:30pm that we needed to move to another site as they had made a mistake in allowing us to park in this site. We were not allowed to wait until morning and therefore were hitching up in the dusk / dark. We left the park and were penalized on the rate as we hadn't stayed the full week. We went to a Wal-Mart parking lot for the night and then another nearby campground to complete our stay in the area. Can't say strongly enough that you might want to try other campgrounds! We camped at Glenwood RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

We waited 10 minutes for the "check in" phone to respond when we entered because the number to call was busy. From the entrance our site was about 1/2 mile away and the gravel roads are TERRIBLE. You might be able to do 5mph due to many many pot holes. We found no pull throughs and most sites we saw were grass and some very large so you could manage to pull through. Due to lots of recent rain we were told to stay on one of 5 or 6 back in gravel sites to avoid getting stuck. We had to be careful where we walked due to mud. There are many long term residents and several of their sites didn't look well kept. We were attracted to the CG due to it's being an AOR park for $9 plus $3 reservation fee. Doubt we'll return.
