Very noisy from Interstate I69 right next to it. The gravel road to sites is full of dips and small holes and needs to be graded. Tight turn at the end to swing around to get to the pull-throughs. We had a hard time getting into the "pull-through" site and had to go back up front to turn around, had to unhook and back up and maneuver with great difficulty to get turned. Not at all big coach friendly for our 40' with toad; we would not stay here again unless we were desperate. This is the 2nd or 3rd time we have tried it and it gets worse. They are building more playground and similar amenities, likely catering to families for weekends. Looks like there are some permanent occupants as well. No one is in the office, ever although the trailer adjacent has a sign outside for site Manager. We arrived at 5:30 PM and they close at 5:00 PM so we followed self check in procedures. We expected someone to be in the office in the AM to get a receipt as their instructions promised but there was no one again, when we left at 11:00, just another note on the door that the person took their truck somewhere. It is not worth the price, $31.75 Good Sam rate. We have spent more comfortable nights at rest stops or Walmart. Sites are tight and not all hookups are on the same sides. They are planting trees beside the sites which will make it less accessible. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

"Camping is a privilege not a right." This is how this park begins their extensive list of rules which include radar checked speed with fines. Enough of attitude. It is a nicely laid out park with stuff for the kids and easy access. It is next to the Interstate with the expected noise. The restrooms/showers were clean but no A/C. The utility hookups may be perfect or inconvenient depending on the site and your rig. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.Undo

We stayed here for a month, and had a spot in the rear on the interstate side. You hear the vehicle traffic non stop, but after a few days, the only traffic that bothered us was the jake brakes, as the exit is also right there behind the campground. We had originally chosen a site for the month with the water hookup right outside our door (didn't notice that when we originally looked), then swapped to a different site where it had the hookup out our back side. There are trees on most lots so we also made sure we were able to open the slides and awning without any problem. The firepits are close to the road, and we did have to close our awning to use it as the yards there are small. We also didn't do any fishing, even though we were told it is well stocked, because we didn't want to pay to fish. All that said: overall the campground is nice. Cleanliness means alot to us even if we don't use their shower rooms. The office was always open when it was supposed to be, and if anyone left it, they would put up a sign and be back very soon. The beach area was nice, and swimming was relaxing. You can't bring in ANY outside firewood at all of any kind, but they sell it reasonably priced there. (Not too many campgrounds do.) They have nice large pull through sites too which is nice. One thing we really REALLY liked is they provide places all along the fence to deposit our pets waste. Wish more people would clean up after their pets though. We enjoyed our month there, and would go back. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

If you need or don't mind trying to sleep a few yards from interstate traffic this is a nice well maintained park. Over-the-air tv was scrambled, maybe by the interstate. The hookups are odd, spaced far apart from each other and sometimes the water spigot was quite far, I stretched 20' of hose. Try to ask to pick out a site, there are good pull throughs and the back ins are right next to the little lake, but the other side has trees and is further from the interstate. There's a playground/"beach" for kids and paddleboards, they seem to get a lot of weekend people coming to use these facilities. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

Very nice park to stay for a night or two. Road noise may be an issue because park is immediately adjacent to I-65, north exit 201, and there are many big trucks. Rate is what Good Sam members pay. Check-in was friendly, fast, and efficient. Pull-through sites may need attention to create a more level pad and fill low spots. Standing water on sites, grassy areas, and roads may be a present after a rain storm. Some water hookups are on the door side of the RV, but there is good water pressure. Wireless Internet is available for a charge. There is no cable TV, but over the air channels are available with a good digital antenna. Swimming in the small lake is allowed only at the beach, and the beach was neat and clean. From June 1 to August 31, there are many activities at the park for kids of all ages. We have stayed here many times as we traveled I-65, and have not been disappointed with the park and facilities. We will stay here again. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

This campground is right off the freeway and is VERY noisy. That being said, the park is easy on and off the freeway and there are not many parks in this area. The sights are pull though with full hook up and fairly level. There were a lot of activities for the kids and a small lake to swim in. We would stay here again if passing thought the area.

This park is a bit hard to rate. The ease of access is very good as it is at the intersection of an interstate and a state highway. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The gravel sites were almost level. Free WiFi was strong. The park has a nice lake. The downsides are two: the road from the entrance office to the campsites is cluttered with a LOT of campground maintenance equipment and not appealing. The second downside the owners have no control over but it was a BIG annoyance. The interstate traffic noise was non-stop and the trucks using engine brakes on the exit made sleep difficult.

This is definitely not my favorite campground. The highway noise is some of the worst I've ever camped near. I knew that going in, but it was so loud we couldn't sit outside. Inside the trailer it was OK because we have good insulation. There were only a few TV stations available using the antenna. There is a charge for WiFi, but our Verizon and AT&T cellular both worked fine. The lady at check-in was not overly friendly, but she was efficient. All the sites are full hookup so the "$15 fee to dump" is only for people who are not staying in the park. The sites were nice long pull throughs, and easy to navigate. We would stay here again, for one night as we passed through the area. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

NO SOUP FOR YOU!!!! The lady running the show, she is nice for her first 3 sentences, but as soon as she gets your $$$ then it’s: NO SOUP FOR YOU! Unless you are into being bossed around and sent to your corner for a time out, you should go elsewhere. This place is just crazy. The facilities are right off the freeway (loud noise). They charge for EVERYTHING, including the air you breathe and use of daylight. ($15 just to use the RV dump???). Avoid this place at all costs. We pulled in and she started yelling at us the second we got out because she thought a blowing napkin in the parking lot was our trash, she also freaked out while I was backing into a slip, thinking I was going to touch her precious dead grass (which I didn't). This was WAAAAY worse than just having a bad day. You can tell this place is run like a concentration camp. I was afraid my kids might look at her and turn to stone. We couldn’t leave fast enough!

Nice spots requiring prepay because it is one night seems extreme. Arrived about 3:00pm. Cleaned. Other campers not friendly. Acted like we were CIA. Needs more trees and much less road noise. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Fifth Wheel.Undo

Only stayed over night but this campground is super clean and has spacious sites. Not a 10 because they do not allow outside firewood and the fact that it is very close to I-65. Road noise at night. Would stay again if passing through. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Travel Trailer.Undo

I really love that this park is conveniently located right by I-65. It makes for a very convenient stop over for me because it is located right before you get into the hustle and bustle of Chicago. I see a lot of kids that are fishing from the lake, and a lot of the sites are lakefront sites. The cell phone signal is full bars on my Verizon phone. We needed to resupply and do laundry, and this place worked out perfectly for us. We really liked the midweek pricing which makes this place a 10 in my book.

Bargain price at $14.98 using our Passport America. It is a lovely, clean spacious RV park with lots of amenities for families, which do not interest us. Likely a destination site for locals. Level pull through site for our 41' motor home + tow car. Downside is that it is extremely noisy right alongside I 65 and entrance off Hwy 24. It appears that spaces across the lake are for long term RVers so overnighters get the interstate noise although there were construction workers trailers there too. Wonder why they don't plant trees or noise capture shrubs along their back fence to diminish freeway noise. We stopped only for overnight but would hate to stay longer because of the freeway noise even though I used ear plugs it is louder than a rest stop because the traffic roars continuously all night long. They charge an additional $2 for Wi-Fi which we did not need. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

If you like being by a lake, clean campgrounds, friendly check-in people, level large pull throughs, good Verizon phone and internet then this is the place for you. Rate reflects Passport America. We camped at Caboose Lake Campground in a Motorhome.Undo

This campground is a very convenient to I-65. We have a 45' motorhome and were pulling a truck and had no problem navigating our way around the campground. We had a very long pull through and did not have to disconnect. Our site was fairly wide with some landscaping but no large trees so we had excellent satellite reception. The Wi-Fi did not work on our site but we have a MiFi card with Verizon which worked great. I did not hook up to sewer because I would have had to disconnect the truck and move it in front of the motorhome. It's a very nice campground and I would stay here again.
