We enjoyed our stay in the campground. The site was completely private and quiet. It had electric but only 110V, We would have preferred 30amp. It was hot and we tripped the breaker a few times.

We camped here one weekend in July. The campground is clean and well maintained. The trails are grassy - like a mowed lawn. We had a great time with the dog hiking them. Saw a lot of wildlife. An easy trip from the Chicago area.

We visited the property on 4th of July weekend for three nights on recommendation from a family member who visited many years ago. We were delighted to find the sites are semi-private in that most sites were well separated by trees, high brush, and bushes....More
