We have spent a wonderful weekend at Lake Ladonna. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This park has a new owner and great improvements have been made through out the park. The bathrooms are all new and very clean. The kids had a great time at the beach and the entertainment was a blast! My family will be spending more weekends at this campground this summer. I would highly recommend this campground to all families! - espo9999

We were very disappointed! The cabin that we stayed in had obviously been flooded several times and reaked of mold. The hot water heater did not work. And when we tried to call the office, no one was there right after we checked in. We left a message and didn't hear from anyone. The lodge was not open even though we were told that it was open from 10-6. The creek was packed with garbage and went right behind the cabin. And don't even get me started on the trains that were right next to the cabin all night long. The lake was the only good thing. I would not recommend camping here unless you don't need any sleep and don't mind being surrounded by garbage. - very dissappointed

Park was neatly mowed and very clean. Sites spaced a little closer than we like but average for state parks. No sewer or water but dump stations on site, as well as water. Appears to not have a lot of 50 amp service available. Phone service good. Hard to get satellite signal. Lots of trees. Sites 57 and 28 best for Sat (direct) service. - Billy47

Campground was clean with lots of shade. Grounds were freshly mowed. Several hiking trails could have been better marked. Camp hosts knowledgeable and friendly. Would camp here again. - Bob F

Nice park for hiking and picnicing, but the campground is not ideal. Most sites are very unlevel and on grassy hills within a tall pine forest. The size of the sites makes most of them unsuitable for trailers/RVs, yet the unlevel terrain makes them unsuitable for tents as well. Also, the rangers did little to keep the noise down from other campers. While the bathroom had flush toilets and showers, there were far too few of them for the # of sites, and they were crowded and dirty as a result. I'd not camp here again, but will do a day visit. - WinnieViews

We stayed here in August. They do have water available and a dump station. The shower building is fairly new and well maintained. There are trails to hike and a playground for children in the picnic area. There is also a lodge in the park with cabins and a restaurant. There is a creek flowing thru the park and fishing is allowed. The only negative is the train tracks at the back of the park. - corgi lovers

Sent to an over night area with full hook ups that is as far from the office as you can get. Found assigned site occupied, called and told to take a site in the same area that was all mud. This is primarily seasonal campers and water is a shared stand pipe 50ft hose to reach. Sunday night and the parks about deserted. Inexpensive Laundry on site, pool, lake, old fashion Ice cream stand. Trash picked up from sites twice daily. - Edd505

Very spacious lots. Just a long walk to lake but you can take your golf cart as we did and save alot of walking.Very nice beach and also very nice pool. Will stay here again. - Dan Burkhart

Overall, it's an older CG, in need of updating. Good- the new pool, and the site we were in with friends, we were able to turn our trailer to have our doors facing each other. Other than that, my husband said the one trip to the bathroom was bad (old and dirty), luckily we have a full trailer so I never had to go! The lake was pretty, but for the kids, they had to walk across the sandy beach to get to the basketball court, with no sidewalk to get there. No trees in the area where we were, and being the last site in the area by the seasonals, we backed up to what looks like a junk yard- brush piles, empty trailers, CAT dozier, etc sitting around and areas unmowed. To fish off the pier you had to take off your shoes and walk through water to get to the pier, which wouldn't have been bad had it not been 50 out. The people checking in didn't quite seem to know what was going on because they told us one thing about fishing (included), and our friends that it was $6/person/day to fish as a registered camper. Not sure that we'll be back, but as a last resort, it was ok. - kermitfor4

Many Seasonal sites. My neighbor was a full timer in a park model. He cut the grass & weeded the slab. Saw me cutting kindling and came over with 2x4 scraps to get the fire going. Steep single lane hill in and out, so you need to ensure no one is on the hill at the same time. Play ground, hoarse shoes, mini golf, etc., to entertain the kids. - Edd505

Big well-kept campground that borders the Kishwaukee River. Level sites, quite a few trees, big play area for kids plus a putt-putt golf course. We stayed in site 72 which had a fairly large low spot that was a bit messy after some rains, but other than that, it was a nice site. Quite a few seasonal campers (all well-kept sites).
The only reason I didn't give a 10 rating was because of closeness of sites to one another. Prefer a bit more breathing room, but we will definitely stay at this place again if in the area. Also, because you are in a valley at this campground the cell (Verizon) and TV reception (antenna only) was hit & miss. - Gowest1969

This campground is situated along the Kishwaukee River just south of Rockford. It is a very nice setting, quiet and peaceful. Most sites are occupied by seasonal RVs which are kept neat and tidy. We stayed two nights in a pull thru FHU site on grass. The sites in this area are set up so that two RVs share a common utility area along their highway sides. The campground was not busy when we were there, but in busy times you might find your door facing another RVers door. Also, even though the campground offers FHU the rules expressly prohibit use of washers on board RVs. I've never before encountered such a prohibition in a campground. We stayed at this campground to visit friends in the area and would likely return if in the area again. - 15243

My family has stayed at O'Connell's Yogi Bear Jellystone park for the past 6 years and we have enjoyed it very much. Sites are spacious and offer some shade. Site surface is sand and grass, featuring a fire ring, picnic table and patio.
We stayed in rental units, but now they have increased the price so much we can no longer afford to stay here. - LaurieB

Absolutely disgusting! We arrived around 8:00pm and left by 10:30pm. The place was dirty, run down and had a bad feeling. Our motorhome was scratched by the tree branches as we pulled out. We will never return. We called the manager the following day and he did not return our call. We usually love Jelly Stone parks.
This one does not meet any of the normal standards. - Iowa family 2

This was my second visit here. I was with my daughter and her family. They like it for the activities for my granddaughters. We camp in a motorhome and tow a car. The first thing you notice is the extreme angle the entrance has with the road. I guess that's why there very few motorhomes there. Check-in was an ordeal due to the unfriendly and indifferent staff. If we could have gotten a refund, the weekend could have ended at that time. There was another family with us so we had three sites reserved. They had us and the other couple in the wrong sites, but since we were all together, switching them should have been easy. Nope, not without talking to the other family, who wasn't coming to the next day. We went to a fourth site. The lack of cooperation in resolving the issue was something I've rarely encountered.
The campsites are quite large, and there is no designated pad to park an RV on. Also, there are no permanent fire rings, so driving into an old fire pit is possible. Although they had quite a bit of rain the day before we got there, the ground was quite firm. The water and electric hook-ups are nicely elevated, so connecting is easy. The sewer is not right next to the water which is desirable.
There is no cable TV and even a digital antenna won't get a strong signal. We did not come to watch TV, but the nightly news and weather would have been nice.
Wi-Fi is available, but there is a hefty fee to get Internet access. They had a coupon for 4 hours free, but when I inquired about it at the office, I was met with more indifference. But, by this time I was used to it.
We were there in the spring and it got cold one night. So much so, my daughter emptied a LP tank. They have a very short window (½ hour) that you can get a tank filled, which of course you would not know about until you try. When she did go during the window time, at first she was ignored.
I do not have to stay at this campground; I will not again. - Martini

I was the only one in the level "field" where most of the sites were located. The grounds were manicured, no weeds around the pedestals. The interior roads were good. There is a water spigot between pedestals but you would need 50 feet or more of water hose to connect. This is a fairgrounds not an rv park so there are no amenities. Pecatonica is a sleepy little town of about 2000 people 20 miles west of Rockport. - mrracechaser

Friendly staff, very clean park. AT&T cell service was not great at our site but I consider that a good thing. - Gohawks

This is an older campground that the previous owners have let it go into disrepair. The new owners purchased this about three years ago and are trying very hard to bring back to life. The new owners are vary personable and reach out to new campers that are there. They came over to our site and introduced themselves to us on Sunday which I find outstanding and asked if anything needed to be done.
I did mention that some trees need to be trimmed to provide for additional clearance for large rigs. We might come back in a year or two to see what other improvements, that they have made to this campground. - Jim W1

It was busy. Had lots of entertainment fir my grandchildren. They had a wonderful time. The camping spots were a little small but not to bad. We had a great time talking to the neighbors and watching the kids play. Yup we will go back again. - Val1949

OK park. It is a typical park in this area in that there are a lot of RVs but no one there until the weekend. Roads are gravel, with ruts. We were there at the time a tornado set down at a RV park about 2 miles away. We spent about 1 1/2 hours in the store as shelter. It had windows and not much protection. I almost could not get out, as the road had some serious drainage issues. Wi-Fi was good. Site was very unlevel. I would not stop again. - bobowill

Rate reflects monthly rate. This is no longer a Passport America park. This is a get-away park for Chicago folks. Most sites are seasonal most are well kept and nicely landscaped. The residents are neighborly. The owners are on-site and accommodating. There is a restful, bucolic atmosphere here, especially during the week. Things ramp up a little on weekends and there are many activities. Big highlight for my sons was the weekly Sunday morning frog jumping contest. The fishing is good, catch and release for cats and bass; keep panfish if you like. The laundry is adequate. Showers/restroom a little dated but clean and serviceable. Like most of Illinois, there is high iron content in the water - you'll want a new filter when you leave. We would return. - Joann26

This is a Passport America park that is very popular with locals as there are mature trees and several lakes for fishing or swimming plus themed activities for kids and adults. Families come here for generations from what we were told. Interior roads are dirt/gravel and the sites were mainly grass. Some sites are very unlevel. We were near the office so had a back-in site with FHU and a decent WiFi signal. The owners are extremely nice and very helpful. The grounds in no way compare to modern RV parks we are accustomed to. Showers and restrooms need major work and cleaning. - Bookwormonwheels

We were going to stay here and ended up not due to the creepiness of it. The beautiful pines that cover this campground are only beautiful on the road in. Once you get inside, they are all half dead and oozing sap on everyone's tents/campers. The seasonal campsites are cluttered with so many lawn ornaments they look like an episode of Hoarders! Creepy place. - Valerie C

This campground has no business letting "outsiders" in. This establishment only caters to the seasonal camper. Rules of the campground are not clearly posted anywhere. There did not seem to be any organized activities. There were no tents there at all when we camped. Staff was rude and refused our attendance on their "hayride". The only bath house was lacking attention and extremely dirty. Doors falling off of hinges and cobwebs everywhere. The swimming hole looked like a mucky swamp infested with bacteria. Fishing pond was also lacking attention. Not much in way of a store with camping supplies. Sites were tight for the more modern campers with slides. Only nice feature was the beautiful pine trees. I would not camp here again. - musuru24

Unbelievable. Most terrible camping experience we've ever had. The owners were rude and belligerent. Do not come here and do not bring your children. The owners screamed and yelled at us and my children, threatening to throw us out of the campground for singing children songs on the hay ride. My 5 and 7 year old were in total fear...screaming, crying. I argued with the owner after we were threatened and accused of using profanity...something we never did, nor did anyone else on the hay ride. I cannot explain their behavior, but they did call the sheriff to have us thrown out. This is a place for regulars...yearly and seasonal guests. I suggest if you consider coming for a weekend stay, that you do not. You will be an outsider and they will throw you out for any reason they wish, truthful or not. The bathrooms and showers were disgusting. I felt that my family was in danger staying there. Signs all over the grounds read "we reserve the right to refuse service to anyone". The playground sign reads "if you are older than 6 years old, and caught playing here, you will loose your playground privileges" How can they even prove age? Do they ask for the child's drivers license? The pond is considered "great for swimming". I wouldn't let my kids put one toe in that disgusting water. - PineView worst trip EVER
