Very nice park roomy sites but close to I88 so traffic noise all night. Great water pressure! Most sites appear seasonal and transient is nearer the Interstate. Site was sort of pull through as I was directed to drive out trough another site in front of me. - Edd505

Excellent campground with beautiful lake view. Owner exceptionally kind, w/FHU, no WiFi, and limited service through AT&T. Need to find an excuse to stay here again. - rob4mepls

Very nice park with a large pool and a swimming pond with a fountain. Great internet and very level sites. We stayed here on PA. Lots of shade trees, but we were able to get satellite. - dd2some

We stayed here for two nights on a shakedown cruise on our "new" 2004 motorhome. We had one of two pull through sites. It was easy to get in and out of and the electrical was easy to reach.
Most of the sites are nicely shaded although there is a more open area on a cul de sac with a small playground area. It's a nice campground with many nice sized dry level sites. - Charlie K

This used to be a great park but has gone down hill a lot. Electrical service at sites is dated and very under-powered. There were 6 sites fed by one 80 amp breaker and the Rangers comments were "shut off your A/C". We moved to a 50 amp site in another area and our EMS showed one leg at 122 volts, the other at 115! Stayed here over Memorial day for 14 days and saw NO meaningful security except for the county sheriff deputy drove through 2 times! The Ranger was off for the weekend so only the volunteers were available. Loud cars drove through all night! We had reservations for later in summer and have already cancelled them. Gnats are very numerous, you will need a LOT of bug spray to sit around a campfire here! - Fulltimer5

Beautiful park. Very woodsy and scenic. Nice lake for fishing and birdwatching. Campgrounds were deserted during our visit. Camp hosts are very nice and helpful. Fantastic covered bridge that had us worried our rid would not be able to use, but it was no problem. Most of the sites are wooded but there is a small loop of open sites near the playground. Restaurant and concessions will open mid April. Be sure to stock up in the small town of Morrison if you need anything. There are plenty of horse trails which you can use. Wish it had water or sewer but there is a dump site. Will be sure to visit again. - redshoe

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

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

Stayed at the Green River Oaks Memorial Day Weekend and had a blast. Owners and staff were incredible. Sights were large and clean and park was amazing. We had stayed there years ago and the owners have since changed and have done a great job. - BenFranklinC

When we first arrived water was leaking from the hook ups, I let them know. There were holes in the ground I asked to be covered up so my children wouldn't get hurt and the play areas are outdated and old and I even asked to have that addressed, I didn't want a kid to get hurt. Although it's under new ownership, they were extremely rude and the place is the worst we have been too. What horrible owners. We won't be back and I suggest you look elsewhere. - john voiles

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

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

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

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

This park has a lot to offer. And it could be great if management would actually enforce the rules they have posted everywhere. Rules when you make a reservation, rules on the web site, rules in the front office, rules on the map, rules on the schedule of activities. BUT - most people who camp here break the rules. Quiet hours. What's that? No golf carts during quiet hours? Lie. Map say 7 MPH, signs in the campground say 10 MPH - right! It's the Chicagoland Speedway for all the numerous golf carts! And the dust. WOW. We found the staff to be on and off. Sometimes very friendly and helpful. Othert imes, just acting like we were bothering them. There are a lot of seasonal trailers in the park, and they are very well maintained. My issue is that if I pay $65 a night for a campground, I expect to be wowed. And not nickeled-and-dimed for every event. The mini golf was $3. The course was debris-ridden and on some holes, in disrepair. The mini-golf was typically unmanned. The weekend we camped, there was a fireworks show and that was pretty good. It was longer than I expected and very nice. This park is LARGE. Be prepared to walk. Everywhere or spend $60 a day to rent a cart. - NetteK

We stayed here for a long Fourth of July weekend, and were extremely pleased. We stayed at a premium site (full hook-ups) right across from the pool and bar. The pool was well-kept, and right next to the bar that had an XM radio station playing most of the day. The bathrooms were also quite clean, and there is a general store of sorts with arcade games, random items (shirts, snacks, camping supplies) and a concession stand of sorts. There were many activities available, some free. Great for kids. Getting to the spots can be tough. You have to follow an employee from the entrance, and be wary of the trees and a few narrow paths. - David Johnson

This is a really neat resort with lots to do. It is well kept and managed. Pool is just the right size and very clean. The namesake lake seems to be underused, but it apparently has lots of fish and they have boats available. If you bring a kayak you may be the only one out there and it is basically 5 minutes from end to end, but there are other areas in this region to paddle if thats your thing. This resort is a true hybrid, and entertains adults as well as kids. Kids get a pool party and crafts on Saturday. For adults, there is a margarita bar with regular 'bags' tourneys, and on some Saturday nights, a live band playing until around 10 PM. A large proportion of the park is seasonal, but the daily area gets the prime spots near the pool, store, and shower-house. Its not the quietest campground, but is a good mix, and gets much quieter after the band shuts down. Ask about the weekend's agenda, or seek a site farther from the pool to get some distance from the band/stage. We were here on a rainy weekend and the band started about an hour late, so it ran until after 10:30, when the agenda said it would end at 9:30. Not a big deal, understandable I guess. Nearby is Timber Lake Playhouse, a summer stock professional theater that is surprisingly good for such a rural area. We saw Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat. If you are here during the theater season, see what they are showing, they are really quite good. Timber Lake is a one of a kind resort with something for everyone, as long as you don't want to go to sleep too terribly early. - m11_9
