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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Just an average park, dirt sites, limited shade. Our site had none. Biggest complaint was the internet service. Their web site indicates they have it; I called and was told it was available at the sites. We got there and set-up and and attempted to use the net to reroute our trip due to bridge repairs on I-65. NO INTERNET! Went to the office and asked the young man who had told me they had internet at sites about the status; he said that they have satellite and it comes and goes. Usually doesn't work. I even got up at 5:00 am to try and it still was so slow I could not use any of the map sites. Don't go here if you expect internet! In spite of what they say, it doesn't work!

I think we have finally determined that KOA's are to as the Bates Motel is to Motels. We rarely stay at a KOA that is wonderful but this one was not good. The water coming out of the tap is brown, not discolored but brown. Our site was not level at least for a big rig, they parked the people next to us in a popup the wrong way in and those people proceeded to take over some of our area as well. Not there was much to take over the spots are narrow. It hasn't rained for a while but yet the grounds were still wet. They get the same rating as Hickory Hollow up the street by Trailer Life but it is beyond me why. Honestly, we tried to get into Hickory first but they were full and this place is also packed. Well, at least we will know to keep on trucking next time through. We wouldn't stay here again. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

This rate is with the Military Discount. Easy on/off interstate and very quiet. Sites are close together and muddy when it rains. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

Weird site layout, with some tight turns. Sites were very soggy when we were there (needed 4WD to leave our site!), with standing water and lots of slick grass - I don't know how the tent campers managed. They were trying to pump out water while we were there. Dump station at exit/entrance is very crowded (we had to back into it, due to parked cars in front of the office) and dump is on the wrong side (probably why they have a long sewer hose there for guest use during dumping). Our site was grass-only (no gravel), and it was hard to level with the sogginess of the ground. I'm guessing this isn't unusual because they make a point on their campground map they give you at check-in that weather is not a valid reason to get a refund. On the plus side, it's a nice looking campground, and, in dry weather, might be a fun place to take a family to give the kids experience "camping", particularly if you camp in a tent or pop-up. Would also be a nice place for a motorcycle camper. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We used it for an overnight stay while traveling. The staff is friendly and there are lots of activities for kids. Some of the sites would be tight for large rigs, but they are level. There is easy access to highway. There are large grass areas for pets and play. There is a well stocked store with game room for the kids. The Wifi worked great, but tv reception was poor. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.
