This is not a campground. This is a transient workplace for people like carnival workers, pipeline workers, welders, carpenters, and workers who are seasonal. The camp host seems nice. Place is very run down. From throwing my trash out before leaving, I saw that they do like their beer. Had I known, I would have stayed elsewhere. - pvcox

Older park in the middle of nowhere. Under new management. They started to put in a new bathhouse in a park model. All pull through sites. They were also in the process of putting gravel on the sites to get them out of the mud. The land is pretty low and it floods with every rainstorm. - Glen_mich

Under new management so this review is based on current conditions. Park is clean, good interior roads. Sites are long with sufficient room for big rigs and slides. Few trees so satellite OK. Low water pressure - very dirty water requires filtration!! Rest rooms and laundry very dirty, dated, need replacement - no cooling evident. would only use this park for an overnight, about three miles west of I57, some road noise from busy road adjacent to park. Owners very accommodating and will probably clean this park up given enough time to make required updates. - endlesstravels

We decided to give this campground a try for its location. Despite all of the outdated reviews we gave it a try. I'm glad we did. We had no issues. It was quiet, relaxing, and exactly what we needed. - AdventureIsMyMiddleName

While the setting for this campground is excellent, the execution is just shy of horrible! The only reason we stayed at this park was its proximity to family and friends. I would never do so again. Go across the border to Indiana, do not come here! The bathrooms are all but unusable, and my wife has refused to use the shower in the ladies room. I didn't think the previous reviews could be true, but believe them. - Phil_S

This is a very rustic campground with no paved roads or concrete pads. We were very disappointed in the general conditions present and the mud was so bad from the rain the previous day that we nearly got our dually stuck twice just getting to the site. We opted to leave and stay at another park due to the conditions we found in the winter time. It may be more appealing in the summer months, but we cannot recommend it during any kind of wet weather. - RVGFulltimers

Nice place to be while waiting for new truck brakes. Very friendly. A local couple camping there "took us in". Nice grounds, excellent paved biking/walking trail along the river. Very wooded. Only negative: on a busy truck route. If you want full restroom facilities, camp in season at Pottawatamie. It was already closed for the season when we were there. We were at Chippewa which is further from Bourbonnias and closer to the busy road. The river drive on the west side is scenic and worth the time. Take the Warner Bridge Rd. to get across. - snsfry

Two campgrounds here. If you are in a bigger rig I would suggest the Chippewa campground. It is more open and easier to get in and out of. The Potawatomie campground is where we stayed and the loops are very tight. Heavily wooded on this side though some nice sites and very private. This park also has a great 10 mile paved bike trail. We would return here but stay in the Chippewa campground next time. - janieD

There is water located through out the campgrounds and there is plenty of good sites to choose from. Good place for base camp to explore the area around Kankakee. - Fordiesel250

We just stopped here overnight on our way east and I am glad that we only stayed overnight because I wouldn't want to be here for two nights. Very little improvements have been done in this park, just a grass area with hookups and poor gravel roads. Even the office is in poor shape. Grass has grown up about a foot high around a lot of the campers which means that they are there long term, mostly people that work in the area. I definitely wouldn't want to stay here again. - Linda Allan

This is not a campground. This is a transient facility for tradesmen, i.e. pipeline workers, carnies, etc.
Some people live here year round, by the looks of the sites and campers.
No restrictions on how old your rig is.. bring in your beast.
Rates to me are too high. take it or leave it attitude.
$700 a month for 50 amp with Water and sewer.
Gossipy workers/owners. People come in all hours of the night.
You will get a tongue lashing if you go over the speed limit of 10 MPH.
No campfires. No ice. Very cramped conditions. Many run down sites.
I-80 Road noise 24/7. No buffer for noise control.
I needed this facility as a place to stay while on contractual work in the area.
Otherwise, I would avoid. - josephine Plumber

This park has very unlevel, very close, sunny/open grass only sites. Very rude people as well as workers living there. Not worth the time or money to put up with drunks throwing things. Very scared! It was better to leave. - Sheilagramm

We stayed here for 4 nights as we wanted to visit Chicago on our way to the East Coast. When we arrived at check in, our rig was too wide for the spot assigned to us. The host had to come over and use a chainsaw to cut down many branches of the trees on both sides. That worked perfect! We were not able to receive any satellite service and our antenna was iffy. There are sights on the other side of the loop that should be able to get satellite. Very quiet except for the trains that start around 6:30 am. The drive to Chicago was pretty easy. - Weld304

We were pre-registered and did not need to stop at the office or camp host. Very level spot with very good hook ups. Clean, quiet park. - sp123

Now called Cedar Lake Ministries RV Park. There was no lower rate for a tent, so I paid full RV price for a backpacking 1 person tent for an electric site, water spigot was on site as well. No good spot to pitch, set up for campers to pull in. Showers clean and very quiet, not far from Hwy 41. Only option in the area. Office not open when I was there, but payment is in advance online so all you need to do is check in with the campground host. - MeetTheGriswolds

Check in with hotel BEFORE you park. They made us move. The park is fine. It's fairly large and was pretty empty when we stayed. Site has E, water until Oct. 15, and a dump and fill station by the hotel. You get hotel breakfast (not great). Our price was based on the water being shut off. Summer price is higher. Our problem was with the registration process. Normally, you find a spot, set up, and then check in, especially when the park is practically empty. The signs say to check in with the hotel with no other details. There is not a convenient place to park an RV in the hotel parking lot, so we went to the CG, found a spot and set up. When we registered with the hotel, they assigned us a site number. We said, "Oh, well, we're already set up in this other spot, so can we just stay there?" The answer was, "No." They made us move. There were literally 80 sites, 5 of which were filled, and they made us move to different spot. We were only there for the night, coming from Madison, WI on our way to Grand Rapids, MI, and we were tired and very not happy about the move. We got over it and decided to blow off some steam at the casino. There's a sign for a poker room, which leads to nowhere. There isn't one. An attendant laughed and said, "the funny thing is that we still had it listed on our website last month." It isn't funny, it's bad business; take the sign down. They do give you a sort of lotto ticket when signing up for a frequent player card where you can win free slot play. We had to call an attendant twice to figure out how to use the promo money, and we both have college degrees. The process is unnecessarily complicated. Also, everything is way overpriced. I'm not joking when I say that they offer just a hot dog for $5.99, and the couple of beers we had were way off the mark too. - Unknown_Normal

You basically get a space that's convenient to go into Chicago. Basically a space with electric and water. It's clean with good bathrooms. - har-fl

Stayed here for 2 nights while visiting family. We had a pull-thru with w/e and it was plenty long enough. The back in sites looked fine for our 38' fiver also. Free basic breakfast and close to shopping and restaurants. Clean restrooms. Site surface was a concrete pad. Lot had a picnic table. We will stay here again when in town. - miller.va

Campground was very easy to find, about 3 miles off interstate. There are a variety of different campsites available. Our site was a nice size. There were trees around to make it more than an RV "parking lot", but not so many that satellite was impossible. They have sites that easily handle big rigs. There was plenty of room in our site for the truck, 5th wheel and jeep. Well maintained roads through the campground. Good Verizon coverage. We had good DirecTV satellite-but the manager made sure we knew it might not be a good signal. We will absolutely plan to stay here when we are in the area. - Priceless RV Adventures

Spent one night here because of the easy off/on to the interstate, to break our journey. Nice, quiet park. Escorted to our site, a level concrete pad with hook-ups easily accessible. The laundry facility was good and the pool clean. - dands

My wife and I stayed the weekend at reserved site 43. I was definitely pleased, as most of the campgrounds we've been to do not offer concrete pads. The overall stay was pleasant and very quiet. No problems with rowdy neighbors or uncontrolled kids. The pool, although small was definitely refreshing on a super hot day. The camp store had all the must haves, including ice cream, which is always great! The only reason I can't give a higher score is because of the really slow WiFi and lack of cable hook up. These are only minor annoyances though. My speed test on the network came back at 2.5 down and 2.0 up. Awesome for email, but you definitely won't be streaming movies anytime soon. A note on the water quality: I've seen numerous reviews cite the water as a concern being that it's too sulfuric. My grandparents always lived in rural Indiana and their water always tasted similar, so it's not really a big deal for me. Is it Evian spring water? No. Just normal well water that I doubt will cause any problems other than overreacting. - StealthPenguin

This is mostly a residential park with some residual camping sites and tent sites. There are many lakes in the area, which used to be coal mining pits and strip mines. The campground has a swimming pond and fishing ponds, although recent rains flooded the ponds. The water has a heavy concentration of hydrogen sulfide, probably from previous mining activities, so bring a water filter. Most residents buy their drinking water locally. This is a quiet, gated community and the residents are generally friendly. The park has many local activities. - Dick and Linda

Leisure Lake is a large, family-friendly, gated place to stay, IF you can get past the reservation process (difficult to get a hold of the reservation person / sporadic and curt responses to calls & emails, but in his defense, he is kept extremely busy with maintenance and upkeep around the park). We did find the office personnel to be helpful and friendly; however, they do not handle phone calls to the resort or seem to help with the advance-reservation process. Perhaps they need to assist him with this??? This is a membership resort which rents sites not occupied by members; many members seem to be there full-time, based on the accumulation of items around their rigs. Gravel roads and gravel sites (at least our back-in site was) with picnic tables and fire rings surround a centrally located catch-and-release fishing lake. Although the sites are closely spaced, with grass between the sites, there is quite a bit of open, grassy space within the park. All the grass in the park is kept neatly cut on a weekly basis. Amenities abound at the campground: Paddle boats are available for use on the fishing lake; several fishing docks surround the lake; a separate swimming pond with a sandy beach and picnic areas; beach volleyball court; basketball court; putt-putt golf; tennis courts; children's playgrounds; large, heated swimming pool; community BBQ's; weekend rock concerts; laundry/shower facility; exercise room; covered community area; special events hall, and a small store with RV essentials located in the registration office. We used Leisure Lake as a home-base for visits to Chicago and the surrounding area, and because of its convenience to the city, would stay here again, should we return to Chicagoland. - HRTravelers

We were looking forward to staying here - but are quite disappointed. The site has very little shade. More importantly the staff could not be less involved or interested in us. I phoned trying to get the wifi code and the man who answered was actually rude in giving me the code. They have no interest in helping us find out about things to do in Chicago. Before we arrived I had called ahead to confirm our reservation and asked about transportation to Chicago. The answer was "we don't know". Would not stay here again. - Funpro

Even though it's a membership park we checked with them and they will rent to non-members if you call ahead and they have sites. We asked for and received a pull-through for the one night. Site 105 was provided and wow, the chalky road dust from other vehicles going back and forth was enough to turn our truck and RV from the original color to white. Anyone know a good RV wash? - Mr. Camper
