We stayed the weekend with a plan to enjoy nearby Starved Rock State Park. This campground is small and has TONS of site options for tenters; not as many RV/trailer sites but those sites are nice. RV sites are close together, but typical of a KOA. Staff was very friendly. Park is quiet with lots of trees and birds (if you're a bird person you won't be disappointed). Sites are very level with lots of older-growth tree coverage which is perfect in the warm weather. We visited 1 week before the pool was open but it looked pretty much ready to go. Not a TON for our kids to do, but the purpose for our trip was to spend time in the state park which is what we did and when back at camp our boys found other kids to play basketball with so all was well. The dog park area is a good size, but no shade and my pup was too hot in there during the late afternoon. Bathrooms looked newly remodeled and were very clean. No garbage pick-up from your site here, but conveniently-located cans throughout the campground and a large dumpster up front. We hooked up the cable but didn't watch TV; the weather was beautiful and we spent all of our campground time outside. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Close to Starved Rock State Park, but none of the late-night noise and copious campfire smoke that abounds in most state parks. We hiked Illinois Canyon and avoided the majority of the crowds that hike near the Visitor Center.

Not a destination campground;however, ok for one night. The lower level pull-throughs are spacious but have only water and sewer. There is a dump station on the way out that is on the wrong side, but a long hose is available. We faced a pretty creek, and the trees gave shade. The upper level full hook up sites appeared close together. The playground was old, but good for getting the wiggles out. The bathrooms were clean and modern. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

Owners/staff very accommodating. Large, spread out park, nice little creek runs through for fishing or ambiance. Large dog run, kid friendly. Nice pool. Lots of tents and cabins. Utilities were well positioned. No wi-fi at sites, only available in office. Not satellite friendly, just about entire park under trees. Cable available but with small selection of stations. About 2 miles from interstate in middle of cornfields. We were there on a Friday overnight, and park was completely filled with locals camping for weekend. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

Water/Elec pull thru site 57 got satellite reception (dish on top front of Motorhome). Otherwise, a shady spot right across from the creek. I did ask for a satellite friendly site. Very clean restrooms/showers, looks to be recently upgraded - nice showerhead. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

Convenient to Interstate, but located far enough away that there is no traffic noise. Pretty spot good for an overnight stay. Camped in a 35 foot 5th wheel on site 7, which is level & gravel with a small grass plot & some shade. Room for truck. Sites are close. Full hook up site. Adequate over the air TV. Bath house was clean. Did not check out laundry house. Did not use pool, but it looked well cared for. Play equipment for small children & a basketball court. Staff is friendly. It had rained a lot for extended periods before we arrived & some sites in a hollow-like area had standing puddles. Rate reflects tax. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Quiet area - plenty of shade, out in countryside, small herd of cattle across the road made for a serene setting, able to see sunrise, wish we could have stayed longer, definitely will return if in the area again. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great place for an overnight stay or anyone looking for a very quiet setting. Other than the swimming pool and playground, there isn't much here for activities. This is our second stay here, and we wouldn't hesitate to come back. Very refreshing not to be camped next to an interstate, and yet interstate access is very easy from here. Very nice owners. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Tent Trailer.

This park offers many amenities such as a pool, play area which would be important for a family vacation. But, for just a quick overnight, it was a bit pricey. We were parked in a "pull-through" which, in reality, was just a part of the road that had a hookup provided. Spaces were close. If my neighbor had his slide out, I would've been able to borrow the salt and pepper through our window. The young man who checked us in was efficient and friendly and walked us out to our space. The Wi-Fi was very weak, even from our space near the office. We would stay here again because apparently there is very little else in the area. Our RV is 40' long. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

It's not surprising that the reviews are so varied since its a small park but has 3 separate areas. The area by the office is right by a high speed county road and the sites are extremely narrow - most will not allow slides to open. The area behind the office is grassed with several large trees, but the ground level is very close to the water table and very soggy when we were there. Even more of a concern is that the pull-through sites are for two units, both facing the same way, so if its busy, you can get trapped. Some tent campsites are along the edge of this area, others are on the other side of the creek on higher ground and seem quite good. The Wi-Fi is very weak, even close to the office; most web sites will not open. I will not be back. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

What a nice small KOA, wonderful family run with very clean campground. The small creek that runs through offers fishing, the pool was very nice and we are likely to return. Staff was available to answer questions and helped with a concern we had. Sites are close together which is a drawback but the only one. Wifi is poor but hey it's camping! We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We felt very welcome and appreciated the escort to the site. Site was gravel and grass, but fairly level. Trees were trimmed, but gravel roads are curvy. Roads can be driven slowly by a big rig. WiFi was very slow. Park was very quiet, neat and clean, but there are acorns around the bathroom area which may be a hazard for any one with issues walking. It was enjoyable staying at a park without dealing with the roar of the interstate. We would stay at this Park again. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here one night for a group outing during the week. As soon as we arrived, the staff was very friendly and allowed us to choose from a couple different sites that would best accommodate our group. Shortly after arrival it started raining, and the owners were nice enough to allow us to watch the Bears game on the game room TV, even after the lobby had closed. The bathrooms and showers were very clean, and our sites were nice and level. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

This is and older park with a lot of different sites to choose from. We had one up front near the entrance which was a pull-through. The site was long with plenty of room for our motorhome and tow but it was tight to the rigs on either side of us. The owners were friendly and the laundry area was clean with low cost to do our wash. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

This is a rural version of most KOAs. It works for a one night stay. There are not a lot of campgrounds in this part of Illinois. It is best to come in from I-80 versus 39. Campground is situated great distances from the nearest city so there is almost no digital TV reception. Owners are very aware of the lack of reception. Most campgrounds in similar situation would put in their own system. Some of the roads within the campground can be tight for a large rig. Our site was very level with good electric and water. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
