Signed up for this vacation apprehensive about the time share aspect. Fell in love with property. Had a great time. Presentation was a bit lengthy, however should be expected, since it was part of the promotion. I didn't feel mislead. My family had fun with activities on site. Staff was awesome, all very friendly and attentive. Will be very happy... More

This is a beautiful property in the middle of farm land. Very family friendly and several things to do to entertain the whole family. Not much to do near by but some activities about 20 minutes away. This is our third time staying at a Silverleaf resort. I highly recommend their properties. Great job Fox River.

Pro: - Excellent par 3 golf course - Mini-golf, basketball, tennis, shuffleboard, volleyball available - Beautiful property - Can visit Chicago (But be prepared for it to take up a chunk of time-- for us, 1 hour drive to train station and a 1.25 train ride both ways) Con: - no Wifi, except in the Activities Center. However, even that... More

Facility was clean, staff was friendly, enjoyed this layed back vacation time. New water park was nice, however it geared to kids (which is ok) but little for adults. Other amenities were good, golf course improvements are in the works. Cell service is better than in the past, would be nice to have WiFi throughout the facility and not in... More

We went for a 2 night 3 days stay which required a 90 minute sales Presentation. Presentation was NOT 90 minutes! Presentation started at 10 am and concluded around 2:30 4.5 hours of our day that we could have spent checking out resort activities they said we had access to. Spoke to three sales representatives we said no to. Wanted... More

Went to attend a time share presentation-told we could use the water park and all facilities after presentation. The presentation was not high pressure-though we were told it would be about 90 min. it really was about 3 hours-no exaggeration. It was difficult for my youngest child to sit through. After seeing 3 sales people were were directed around the... More

My family just returned from spending a week here. There were 18 of us and we had 4 units. We stayed in the Presidents Lakeside units which were updated, clean, and spacious! Yes, this is located in the middle of nowhere with no wifi and horrible reception HOWEVER even the 3 teenagers enjoyed themselves! Instead of being on their phones... More

We visited Silver Leaf Fox River Resort the first week of May 2015 for the first time, and along with our 3 guests thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Hint: Ask to stay in the newer Presidential condos. Fishing was excellent both in the lake and at the river. We played 3-par golf, loved the putt-putt & indoor pool, and snack bar.... More

My favorite part of our vacation was visiting Starved Rock State Park, located about a half-hour from Fox River. Starved Rock is a beautiful park for hiking, picnicking, and scenery. The two canyons are different from any terrain where I am from in Florida. The Fox River resort was comfortable and has a lot of activities. My children played volleyball,... More
