The park charges extra for electricity for our site where we stayed for two months. The site price reflects the monthly rate. Because we stayed here two months, we were able to park our motorhome on the pond, which was a much nicer site than the RVs parking in the E section had. If you don't like kids in the pool and lots of activities for kids, don't come here. The place has been owned by the same family for 75 years and in all of those years, they have learned an incredible amount about how to serve their customers properly. Our granddaughter spent considerable time with us here and totally loved the place. The hookups were adequate, however sewer caps instead of a rock would be nice, a faucet that didn't leak would be better but all in all, we loved our experience here. Shopping is nearby. Our Verizon signal was great. In spite of the heavy tree density, we were able to peek through with an adequate DirecTV signal. Crank-up antenna produced a number of channels. We definitely would stay here again. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

We have stayed at this campground numerous times and I must say they have done so much in the way of improvements. The office staff couldn't be better. The washrooms we cleaned at least twice daily. The pool and beach and grounds were very well maintained. This is the most family friendly campground in the Chicago area. We have no complaints. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Tent Trailer.

Large campground with many seasonal installations. Great place for kids with beaches, pools, mini-golf, etc. We had a large site and found it easy to use. Friendly staff and they maintained the park well. Would use again. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

To be fair, we visited this park on a holiday weekend and it was evident that many families had been here for the whole time. It was obvious that maintenance was unable to keep up. The 45 sites designated for short time renters was primarily tents and trailers which seemed to spread into each other. The showers were swamped and unpleasant. On the other hand, our site was beautifully shady and water and electric performed well. Much of the park is park models. We were thankful for special service as they squeezed us in as soon as someone vacated a spot and called to let us know they had a site. It is not on the way to anywhere, and I would not trouble to go again. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

We were at a full hook up site which we loved. Our site was roomy and shaded with trees, we didn't even have to use our awning. Their bathrooms were very clean, and while using the shower I actually saw a work person come in and stock the bathrooms with toilet paper and make sure everything was in place. They had a nice schedule with activities for each day of the week. Firewood was reasonable-10 large pieces for $6. We liked the park and would definitely visit again.

The rate reflects a month stay. This was a good place to stay. Most of the campground is for seasonal campers who own the park models they are in. The staff was for the most part great. The campground is located in a good area for shopping and entertainment. The only negatives for us were a lack of cable tv and the WiFi which, when it was working, could only be accessed in an open air pavilion or in the immediate area around the pavilion. This place gets busy on the weekend with locals using the campground beach and the transient spaces. It wasn't bad too bad though even when it was packed. The showers were very clean and the pool was good. We will stay here again when we are back in the area. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Motorhome.

Sites were gravel with lots of shade. Roads were narrow and paved, but the trees were intelligently planted back from the roads so that backing in was not too difficult. Upon arrival, I ascertained that my pedestal was incorrectly wired. A worker arrived five minutes after I called the office and fixed it. Shower water could have been hotter. Memorial Day weekend was party time for the locals. The place was full and overflowing. It did quiet down around 11 PM. The campground was full making getting in and out slow and tedious due to cars parked in the road and people wandering everywhere. It was hot and the voltage dropped to 108. Restrooms were clean until Friday night and never were clean again until Tuesday. Rate is for a weekly stay. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Travel Trailer.

This crowded park includes everyone from permanent residents to over nighter and day use visitors; many, many day use visitors. Narrow roads, tightly spaced sites and a lot of trees require careful navigation but can accommodate big rigs. Utilities are adequate with low water pressure. Wi-Fi is available in the area but requires contracting with a source outside of the park. AT&T phone and data service are good. The price is based on a week’s stay. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

OMG, this park is very busy in the summer - lots of tents and children. They allow the general public to use the lake so that makes it extra busy on weekends. The pool was super crowded as was the laundry, which was outside in the heat and it was exceptionally hot and muggy last July. It's an old, old, old park and needs some TLC. Management was very courteous and helpful. Most of Fish Lake is dedicated to park models - some look great, others should be hauled away. We stayed for two weeks as we were working in the area, but I don't think we'd stay here again just because of all the noise and campfire smoke from the tent campers.

Nice, well-kept park. Most sites are long term. Offers fishing lake, pool, kids playground, laundry, and church on Sundays. We were here for several months and paid a monthly rate. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

This park offers full hook-ups, proximity to the northern Chicago metropolitan area and numerous activities. The pool was clean and well kept. Park has lake access, a nice beach with playground equipment. Roads are narrow and sites are tightly packed but some can be accessed by big rigs with care and patience. Most of the park is occupied by long term residents. There is a lot of tree cover, making satellite TV generally inaccessible but cell phone and aircard coverage was good (both AT&T). The resort provides facilities that are rare in northeastern Illinois. Our cost was based on the weekly rate plus electric. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The short term RV area was very friendly, however it is completely covered by large canopy tree's. This makes it impossible to dry out and there is no satellite signal. The Wi-Fi was very unreliable and is not free either. It is very dark there and with all the dampness there are many mosquito's. I have just 2 words for the owners "Chain Saw". Get rid of some tree's and do it today! We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The park is mostly permanent residents with park model type RV's. There were some older trailers that were in a state of disrepair that needed updating and cleaning. The park does offer limited overnight camping at a fair price. The owners/operators are friendly and try to maintain a clean park. There is 24 hour security in the park on the weekends which seems to help with noisy campers during the night. My only complaint with the park was the dump station. This is not a level sight (running uphill). My rear galley holding tank would not drain all the way, hard to push water up hill. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

There are a lot of trees which is both good and bad news: it was a dark campground. The spaces were narrow and difficult to back into. There were some pull-throughs at the front of the camp but they didn't have full hook-ups. Probably 75-90% were park models, with the remaining sites for tourists. The laundry area was outdoors and had few machines. The exit road to the highway was very very rough: even going slow was very bumpy. We camped at Fish Lake Beach Resort in a Fifth Wheel.
