There are already lots of good reviews but wanted to do ours. We really enjoyed this campground. It is clean, quiet, very well-maintained. There are a lot of good sites and some not quite as good for a motorhome (too much slope), but all sites are paved. Water is available, but this is one of the knocks in that there are shared sources for up to six users at once, and even with 75 feet of hose, we couldn't reach. No sewer (so the second knock) but there are dump station. Location is very convenient to stores and restaurants and there is a train line to Chicago only a few miles away. We would definitely stay here again. - SandmannRV

We love this park. We are originally from Elgin & return here each year to visit friends. Satellite signal is easy to get & Chicago has plenty of over the air stations available. Lots of grass for the dogs & plenty of places to walk them. Lots of shopping & restaurants in the area. - Connie's Co-Owner

Beautiful park, paved sites. Some sites will need extra hoses for water hookup. No showers available, sewer hookups, or honey wagon service. Does have dump station. Showers and service that could come to site and pump out black and grey tanks would be a great improvement to the campground s. It would make it more enjoyable for campers that plan a longer stay. - Pam from Alabama

This is a tiny gem in Chicagoland with a lot going for it. Only five RV sites, plus tent sites and cabins. We have only camped here in off season, $50/nite in the summer is not worth it to us when we only live 6 miles away. But they have a lot of activities in the summer, check the website and reserve early. The good: 1. It is in a forest preserve with an extensive network of hiking trails and a paved bike path. 2. The Metra station is less than 3 miles away, you can be in downtown Chicago in less than one hour. 3. Restaurants and shopping nearby at Deer Park Town Center. 4. Propane, ice, other supplies are also very close. The bad: They need to work on their logistics. Much of the information on the website is wrong, like hours and phone numbers. On some sites, the fire ring is too close to your trailer for a safe campfire. The electric hook up is on the wrong side of the pad (really). No water hook ups (oddly, they have sewer though) and no spigots. You will be hauling water, unless their hose will reach your site. They told when we reserved that we could have it (hose) for our stay but then someone pounded on our door at 9:00 at night and told us that was wrong. He did allow us to fill our fresh water tank before he took it though. This place is geared for giving an outdoors experience to locals. They have classes like Camping 101, they rent equipment like bicycles and snowshoes and even a complete tent set up with sleeping bags. If you are not local, the main reason for going there is to have a convenient way to visit Chicago. - janci

This campground is now closed. Park is only for day use. - WinnieViews

This was okay, but we were driven away by a bunch of tiny flies. No biting, just swarming all over everywhere. Pit toilets, no showers, best for self-contained only. - Janjanjan68

We have stayed here many times in 2004 and 2005. There are flush toilets at the Ranger Station. No reservations, but always a site except for holiday weekends. On holidays arrive early in week and get a great spot. Each spot has it's own water, elec, and fire ring. The wildlife in area is beautiful, crane, egrets, and several other fishing birds can be seen all day long. Additions of more tent sites expected soon. Residents of Kane County pay 10, others pay 15. - beckolette

Maybe I just happened to pick a bad weekend, but this first visit to this campground was completely miserable. Perhaps had I come to tent camp and never expected to leave the campground the whole weekend, I'd have a different opinion. First the good points-- nice graveled campsites (and all have electric), plenty of shade and privacy between the sites in this heavily wooded campground, fairly clean bathhouse, and a nice lake nearby. If you happen to be a resident of DuPage county, the $20/night rate is not bad either. Sadly, the good points end there. The campground is located at the very back of the park and requires driving over 6 large speed bumps to come and go. The campground roads are narrow gravel with tight turns and hills. Most sites are only suitable for tents, pop-ups, vans, or RVs less than 25'. The only available water is from non-threaded spigot pumps. The dump station is small and tilted the wrong way to empty most RV tanks. The campground is only open 2 or 3-night weekends from May through Sept. But perhaps the biggest negative-- both the campground and forest preserve gates are closed and locked just after sunset every night. If you want to enjoy a nice dinner beyond the park boundaries, or visit friends in the area, forget about it! One final negative-- when I visited, the park was literally overwhelmed with mosquitoes. So bad I had to wear a bug jacket to cover my head and upper body! In the future, I'll stay at the Kane Co. Forest Preserve campgrounds-- much MUCH nicer parks that have been built with RVers in mind. - WinnieViews

This park is a bit hard to locate. It is actually located in Warrenville. Any RV campground in the Chicago is a rarity so even with some drawbacks we were glad to find this one. It is a large, beautiful and heavily-wooded oasis in a pretty congested area. Staff very friendly. Restrooms were immaculate even with heavy usage on a holiday weekend. The drawbacks are: (1) it is only open for Fri. and Sat. night camping except on holidays, (2) no and or sewer connections and the few water spigots will not allow for a hose to be connected so to fill your tank requires carrying water in containers to your RV. Sites are level and very spacious with site #64 being best located for the restrooms with showers. One unusual plus is that those over 65 get 1 free weekend per year. We would camp here again. - judb

We've been visiting Blackwell for almost 40 years, but this is the first time we've camped there. We only live about 7 miles from there so it's an easy weekend. This is an oasis in the middle of suburbia. Heavily wooded sites, with level crushed gravel pads and now, electric at all sites, according to the attendant at the gatehouse. There are no water or sewer hookups, but there are spigots throughout the park. There is an adequate dump station, although it is not all that level, so your tanks may not fully empty. I remarked to my wife that whether we traveled three hours to Wisconsin or drove 7 miles to Blackwell, the end result is the same. Quiet camping in a lovely area. The one downside to this campground is that it's only open on weekends, except for holiday weeks when it's open for the entire week. Also making reservations entails calling the District HQ and booking over the phone. There is a three day reservation window which pretty much eliminates spur of the moment camping. The camping permits arrive by snail mail, so very last century. Still, it adds to the charm I suppose. We'll be back often. In the summer the crowds in Wisconsin can be frustrating, so this is a nice alternative if you just want a quiet weekend to camp without dealing with all the traffic. - baraff

Planned this trip to visit family in the area. A majority of sites are permanent. The so-called overnight sites are very close and unlevel. I attempted to sit under my awning and the smell coming from the neighbor's sewer hookup (5' away) drove me back inside. We'll be staying at the state park nearby in the future. - laughing.crone

As others have mentioned, this has a very charming, mid century feel to it. The lake is a wonderful amenity. The staff was helpful and friendly. The majority of the campground is taken up with park models, seasonals and rentals. The overnight section is small. We have a 43 foot motorhome and jeep tow and found this place to be very challenging. To say it is big rig friendly is just not accurate. Low hanging branches at entrance had the tv antennae spinning and the vents and AC units scraping. The check in area across from the lake was very congested. Kids running everywhere and no great place to queue. Found out later that the campground beach and beach amenities are open to the public, for a fee, and not exclusive to the registered guests. After registering, you need to loop back to where you started to find your site. Tight, narrow roads. No good place to unhook your toad, or hook back up. Our back in site was just long enough for the rig, the toad went sideways in the street. The site was uphill, too steep to have the leveling jacks do any good. The right rear jack sunk eight inches into the gravel base. The water connection is located on the site behind you, which you share. No chance for satellite, not even using the portable. No cable. Over the air channels were 8 lousy stations and Fox, and with all of them the picture tiled badly. The only saving grace was the Internet, which was excellent. The charm wore off with a visit to the restroom. They are old, and not in a good way. Mosquito infested. Tried to take a shower but gave up after five bites. Ingress and egress off of busy Highway 12 is a challenge. - VegasVagabonds

Exceptional well maintained park located near a large metro area. The park is clean, all utilities function well and there is a very large dog park. As mentioned in other reviews, there are many park model trailers but they are very well kept. With lots of features including an 80 acker lake, this is an ideal park to kick back or visit the Chicagoland area. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The restrooms and showers, although older style, are very clean. Stay here again? Yes, definitely! - OldeJohn

This park fills up on the weekends, when the Wild West amusement park next door is open. During park hours, you can enjoy (or not) the screams of kids, the fake gun battles, and the train whistle. It's a reasonable KOA. It seems pricey for where it is, a full hour from Chicago with no traffic via the tollway. The wifi worked better than some, and so did our T-Mobile service. There doesn't seem to be anything around so be sure you get what you need before you come. One more thing: the mosquitos are fierce. It was impossible to take the dog for a short walk without being swarmed. Everyone had smokers to try to keep them away. Not sure there's much the park owners could do about that but it made it impossible for us to sit outside at all. - Pull Toy

Not big rig friendly. Entrance/Exit road is single lane. Had to back out of our pull through site due to a clearance problem. Site not level. Stayed in a 44 foot motorhome towing. Good park for smaller rigs, however. - Ftharrisiii

Everything was good in our one night but they need to do something about the entrance to the office. Ridiculous location on the opposite side of the building. Also, one-lane entrance/exit driveway is strange and annoying. Very attractive, friendly place. - mlnr

Overpriced for mediocre, flooded campsite, road to site was flooded and full of big potholes. Would not recommend. - HollyLouise

We arrived around 9:30 when it was dark. We informed the office that we would arrive after they close but it wasn't a problem and we were situated right by the office which was good because it is close to showers. The poor review comes from 2 things: 1) the water is absolutely disgusting! It was so bad that when we went to get water for the dogs they wouldn't even touch it - mind you they eat goose poop and drink from puddles! At one point my husband was washing dishes and the odor was so bad I literally had to leave the camper or I would have vomited! Try taking a shower in that and you feel worse then before you took it. 2). When we could see the park in daylight it looks like a basic trailer park. Nothing redeeming about it. Lots of old "trailer trash" types of campers around. Showers were pretty gross. Place is in serious need of an update. $50 is way too steep for this place! Oh yeah - and if you want to cook out bring your own fire grate - our "ring" had nothing. - Stacey Painter

(Rate based on a monthly stay and includes extra electricity charge.) There sure are a lot of negative reviews about this place. Thankfully our stay was apparently much better then most.
We stayed for a month and got a great spot with full hook-up and clean power. The water was well water and did smell, but all the water in the area is like that. On check-in day, we called to verify the time we could arrive. We were told the wrong time but the office staff went out of their way to get us checked in early so we wouldn't have to sit and wait for hours. We found the staff and groundskeepers to be very friendly.
We didn't use the bathrooms, showers or laundry, nor did we opt for the cable TV. The internet was typical for campgrounds, not very good. On-site propane is a HUGE plus!! Some of the roads are bad, but we simply avoided those.
If I could change one thing it would be that they don't accept credit cards. You also have to pay by cash or check and give a separate electric deposit upon arrival, from which they deduct your electricity use and mail you the balance in the form of a check. Our arrived a full month after we left. I'd love to see them move into the 80s and get a credit card machine. All in all, our stay was very pleasant!! - Julie and Ray
