Stayed 4 days while visiting family in the area. This is a very quiet park on the grounds of a large Christian conference center on Cedar Lake. Road and sites were gravel. Sites were level. Utilities worked well, but the locations for water and electric were a little strange (shared posts) so we needed our electric and water extensions to reach. Good WiFi - the best we've experienced in our 3 month trip! No cable. Lots of trees on most sites, so you've got shade, but satellite would be difficult on most sites. Restrooms and showers convenient and clean. No laundry. Close walk to lake and small beach. Very quiet at night. Someone else mentioned the railroad tracks and train. We counted 2 per day - one in the morning and one in the evening....that's it. Very friendly staff. A peaceful, restful place. We will definitely return when back in the area. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Family oriented park. Good if you want to be away from hassle of Gary or Chicago. About 1 hour back to things there. We had 30 Amp site (no sewer) so had cheaper rate. Reasonably level site. Staff very friendly and helpful.

We are a Class C motorhome. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Lighthouse restaurant was Excellent. Better have reservation. Great spot right on Cedar Lake.

AT&T signal not real strong. Used booster then all was good.

Small campground, Very quiet, but beside a train track with occasional traffic. We used the restrooms that were very clean. Camp host came by to welcome us. Alcohol was prohibited, but our beer on the table was no problem. Playground was simple, but at the office there was a possibility to borrow sports equipment. Lake was beautiful, with a small beach and a shelter. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is the park for relaxation. Great staff and camp host! Plenty of shade, clean area, clean restrooms and showers. It's a short walk to an amazing lake view. We will return! We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Super clean and very quiet. Stayed here a week while we visited Chicago. Best option even though we had to commute every day. It was a lovely place to come home to each evening. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here to attend a convocation in Gary, IN. We have four children and there wasn't much for them to do. The playground was outdated, the one at the conference center was better. The lake was beautiful, but the cost of renting a pontoon ($100/hr with $300 deposit) was steep for us. Nice quiet campground with plenty of space between sites. Shade was wonderful and had a large field open for play. Campers were friendly and children enjoyed riding bikes around the small loop. Campground was small and cozy. The bath house was under construction. Would definitely camp here again. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

This is a great place to stay if you wish to drive in to Chicago. The campground is very nice, quiet, shady. We spent a long weekend in Chicago and left the motorhome here. (Only an hour drive in the toad.) Wish we had time to stay and enjoy the quiet friendly campground. The hosts just stopped by to invite us to game night at the cafeteria. Plenty of room here for the big rigs and our own paved car space across from it. Slow down as you go over the RR crossing on 137th Ave. The sign for the RV park will be on the left. The host will help you park, then you can walk, drive or bike to the office. The lakefront is at the office site, and looked lovely. (Park is near a railroad, but we did not hear any trains.) We will definitely return when in the area!! We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The campground is some distance from the main conference center/office. We were able to pull into the office area and get turned around ONLY because cars were not parked at the end of the lot near the lake. Otherwise, we'd have been forced to unhook our toad and jockey the motorhome around to get out of the office area. The number signs on the sites are side-by-side. I.e., if you're on site 24, do not mistake the sign for sites 2 & 4 as 24 (we did). Water and power hookups are between every other campsite. So, the posts are shared - thus the site numbers for two sites on one post. A short narrow drive in turns right to find about a dozen campsites on both sides of the road. After crossing a culvert, traffic flows to the left where you find the playground and bath house located in a central circle with the campsites around the perimeter. Parking is restricted to the gravel at the campsite. But, if you have a 30' or longer camper, you'll be parking beside your site or across the way in the central circle / playground / bathhouse area. This makes navigating the road interesting for larger rigs with toads. It's downhill from the entrance so, if it's raining and you're in one of the sites located furthest in, you're going to be in ponding water. The campground has trees for every site. Shade is not a problem near the campsites. We never made it over to the lake. So, we cannot comment on that area. We had reservations and new what site we were assigned. We stayed to visit family in the area and would stay again. Just be aware that it's easier to use the tow/toad to get registered than it is to pull the whole rig up to the office location. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This campground is part of a non denominational Church Retreat facility. The campgrounds itself is a short drive or walk to the actual retreat area that has beach access, additional playground equipment, and some sporting equipment such as basketball courts and volley ball nets. The campground area is very clean and well maintained. The playground equipment was a bit old, but OK for a weekend stay. Not a lot to do at the campgrounds, but a good place for a quiet weekend. We camped at Cedar Lake Bible Retreat & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
