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.

Fox River Campground is very safe with lots of various activities including canoeing, boating, swimming, internet access, camping, bonfires, fishing, parties, etc. The parties held here celebrate various holidays and you can have your own celebration as...

My family loves to stay at this place every year. We have been here for the past 7-8 years. Management is very friendly. Have a store on premises, so can buy common items you may need. 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
