First off let me say this was not all bad and would probably give it a higher rating if I was not someone who grew up camping and did not know what camping was. Pros: * It is only about an hour drive from downtown Chicago, if you dont have too bad of traffic * It is right on the... More

I love spending time at Fox River Recreation. The staff is fantastic, the land is beautiful, and it's all and all a great place. I spent most of last summer there and it was great. I throughly enjoyed everything there.

Has a European flair to it ~ which we love the most. Very friendly community with some people who are regulars and some who... More

Not at all like the website pics. I am sure it was a nicer place at one time. They were very nice people and we felt bad leaving, but it was awful. The site next to ours had a huge wet hole that got worse when we hooked up our water. We were gonna stay one night and leave, but... More
