We were here during a bad storm, so they may have tainted my review. Very small campground. The site they had us in was grass. It was level. Staff were friendly. Seemed liked mostly long termers. We were in a pull through right at the entrance/office. The campground is almost in the middle of a corn field on a small road. The bathroom/showers were clean. The pool looked nice, didn't use it. The store was well stocked. The pictures do not resemble what it looked like while we were there. It was adequate for a 1 night stay while travelling. I. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This KOA is very crowded and is lacking some TLC. Appearance is poor. There are only a few full hookups which puts most short stay campers in line at the dump station in the morning. You have to run their sewer line under the camper if your connection is on the righthand side. The exit route is very tight and not well marked. Restrooms are fine. I do not understand the higher rating from some campers for a KOA. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We pulled in after a huge rain storm, we were given a site very near the office - the lady walked us to the site. Although it was a gravel/grass mixture and unlevel, we were able to handle it. Park is way off the highway and in the middle of farms, but this made it very quiet and the folks were very friendly. Huge dog fenced dog run on the other side of a nice creek. Even with al of the wet areas, we enjoyed this park. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Cute campground. Level sites. Gravel pad with lots of grass that was neatly mowed. Sites were a little close though. Park personnel was very nice and helpful. Laundry was clean and a comfortable space to sit. Cable was a little fuzzy. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small, very pretty campground with a creek running through the lower end. Pull through site was adequate for our camper. Staff was friendly and helpful, and escorted us to our site. Restrooms and laundry are updated and very nice. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Shopping(Wal-mart, Target, Home Depot) about 5 miles away. Starved Rock state park is a must visit. The small towns in this area are very pretty, with older homes and unique downton areas. The 101 Supper Club in La Salle is a great place to eat dinner.

Older but nice KOA. It is a small KOA. Full hookup sites at the front of the park are closer together. W&E sites are larger and in the quiet, back part of the park. Roads are a bit narrow for larger RV's but very doable. FHU's good. Sites to the rear are double stacked, but they can sell them as pull throughs if the park is not full. Park has many trees, so no real satellite friendly sites. We were in 54/63 and used portable satellite. (Sites 54/63 can be used as pull through) Good Verizon and T-Mobile signals. Park has basic cable. Park wifi is usable but throttled for movies. Dump station as noted in earlier reviews is on wrong side, but park has additional hose. Nice pool at the park, also fenced in dog park. Plenty of grass in tent areas to walk the dog as well. Camp hosts very friendly and had escort to site. Our site was 30 amp. only but worked ok since it was cool out. May have to watch the creek rise during periods of very heavy rain, if you are in the rear sites. Camp is well groomed and scenic. Would stay here again. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

This is obviously an older campground that has good and bad points. First thing you are struck by is the position of dump station, which is basically on wrong side for departing campers. However, the staff is well prepared for that, providing their own long sewer hose to pass under RV for those departing - since turning around to have it on correct side would be extremely difficult due to narrow, tight turns. Position of station would also cause extreme traffic flow backups if crowded, since using it essentially blocks. Staff is friendly and helpful. Gravel roads and sites that seemed mostly level and had decent spacing from neighbors. Glad we were not in full hook-up sites near entrance, as those are very packed together, and much less scenic than lower area of campground. However, in heavy rains, which we experienced, lower sites get a lot of puddles and standing water, especially around power/water pedestals. Grounds in lower section, with stream running through and many mature trees, were nice. Very nice bathroom/shower facility, laundry, and pool, all clean and well maintained. Great WiFi signal, one of best in trip. Verizon was merely adequate. Cable TV provided. Would stay here again; as a KOA "Journey" CG, very convenient to Interstate. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Starved Rock State Park nearby, with many trail, some amazing canyons and waterfalls, and trail along Illinois River. Place is utterly packed on weekends though, might want to avoid it then.

This is the prettiest KOA we have ever used. The setting is beautiful and the staff is friendly. There is a Kamp K9 for pets that is centrally located. Our site was large and had a fire ring and picnic table. We only needed water and electric. Full hookups seemed more crowded. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This campground is easy to get to from I-80. All roads to the KOA are paved. There is a Love's at the freeway exit with a Subway and McDonald's. There is even diesel at every island.

My previous review 10+ years ago was bit more glowing. The interior sites are quite close together, but were mostly level. Power pedestals and water hook ups were in good shape and didn't look like a DIY project. The full hook sites 16-25 are right on the main road with 8-10 feet from the RVs to the pavement. Other FHU sites were crammed in right next to the office facing all the inbound traffic. I think if you went with an outside "ring" water & electric sites (35 thru 51), you'd have a pleasant view and a bit more space. For the tenters, there are a ton of spots without hook ups in the rear of the campground. Shower house was clean and modern. Office and neat and tidy, staff friendly. One odd thing was the dump station location. I happened to need to empty the holding tanks on my way in and found the station right next to the office on the driver's side, which is exactly where you'd need it on your way INTO the park. The only way to use it on the way out would be to leave the park, turn around somewhere (just two lane roads around here), and come back into the park. Or, do some heroic backing all through the campground to get there in the correct orientation. Wifi was the usual useless campground wifi. Verizon Wireless had 4G and a very strong signal. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

We stayed two nights in the back lower section of the park. We choose a site back there even though there is no sewer hookup because it is so pretty. There is a meandering creek, babbling brook that runs the width of the park and it is very appealing. During our stay there were only two other campers so it was very quiet. There were a few other campers in the front section that had sewer connections. We enjoyed morning walks in the rural farmland setting, cows and all. The dog park was well built and adequate for our labs. The owners are very friendly and helpful. We would return. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Motorhome.

Very friendly owners. Had been pouring rain all day. Put us in a full hookup site due to weather and the creek rising. Only charged for water and sewer. Guided to our site even in the rain. We will stay here againg when coming through. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy check-in and we were escorted to our FHU pull thru site. Park is older and small but well kept. Very clean bathrooms. Friendly hosts and workers. We stayed Fri and Sat nights but were really only there in the evening after supper because our main goals were hiking at the state parks and eating out. Park had a mix of weekend locals and overnight travelers. Sites were very tight in most areas. Park was quiet after 10pm and most campers were very friendly and respectful. We camped at LaSalle / Peru KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Great park for a nite while traveling on I-80 or I-65. May be muddy and have soft ground if the area received rain. Pull thru with water and electric on larger sites with plenty of room. Full hook up may be tight and smaller. Cable TV and WiFi worked with no issues. We will stay here again.
