We just needed to find a RV Park that was open in November as we passed thru, and this was one of the few. They accomodated us for electric and sewer, but no water. Also the gal said only one site open for a 40 foot motorhome and car so we parked in front of one of the lakes and enjoyed the antics of well over a hundred geese also staying for a nite. Restroom and laundry definitely one of the best we have seen. Even tho we did not use them, some of the best volleyball, basketball and tennis... Read More

Restroom and laundry definitely one of the best we have seen. Even tho we did not use them, some of the best volleyball, basketball and tennis courts we have seen. Downfall is a white limestone on some of the roads which tracked into a coach and was awful. Would not rule out staying here again, even for a longer period

Besides being a beautiful park, this is as close as you can get to Chicagoland with a FHU RV park. I-88 to the city is nearby in DeKalb and the Metra is 20mins away in Elburn. If there was nothing else its location would make it worthwhile. This park features two small lakes, about a mile and a half around the two. Small boats are ok, fishing is catch and release. There is a big sandy beach on one lake with a buoy roped swim area. Also paddle-boats. The owners have resisted putting camp sites around... Read More

Besides being a beautiful park, this is as close as you can get to Chicagoland with a FHU RV park. I-88 to the city is nearby in DeKalb and the Metra is 20mins away in Elburn. If there was nothing else its location would make it worthwhile. This park features two small lakes, about a mile and a half around the two. Small boats are ok, fishing is catch and release. There is a big sandy beach on one lake with a buoy roped swim area. Also paddle-boats. The owners have resisted putting camp sites around the lakes, most would have, the walks around the lakes are clear and improved and very pretty, with picnic tables, and flowers. All the rv areas are level gravel with easy hookup to very convenient pedestals. All sites are back-in, end-to-end, but because the sites alternate, like a checker board, everyone has there own area. Each site has some shade, a picnic table, and fire ring. The lack of grass at the individual sites is more than covered by the acres of beautiful green lawns. Always mowed and ready for a barefoot walk, because everyone picks up after their dog. The park is too beautiful not to! The flowers and shrubbery are very professional. You'll find yourself just walking and asking, "What is this?" There is one walkway with different flowering shrubs on each side. All of this is kept clean, neat, and groomed every day. There are permanent trailers that are used on the weekends and summer vacations, not so many permanent residents. All are well kept, with no permanent artifacts outside. Weekdays are very quiet. There is no cable because Rockford and Chicago are very near. The Wi-Fi is by Tengointernet and free. Wi-Fi can slow down if the park is busy. The bathrooms and showers are all-in-one style and very clean and comfortable. The laundry seems pricey but note that the machines are front-loading commercial washers and dryers; fill them to the limits indicated. They do a good job. The owners have their home here at the park. It is a lovely home and all the park and campers spread out before them. We are camping on their front yard. They are very proud of the park and work hard every day to keep their home clean and neat. To this end,there are rules. These rules ensure a clean, safe, and secure campground. All rules are printed on the welcoming brochure and there are none that I have not seen at other parks. This is like an oasis, with all the large, old trees surrounding the property you wouldn't know a city was nearby. But it is, and you can walk to town. You will see the owners around all day because they live here too, and are your neighbors. We stay two months every year to make medical appointments and visit friends. We are full-timers now, but this area had been our home. We return yearly.

Great park. Very clean and great laundry room. Nice location in a nice rural Illinois town.

This is one of the best parks we stay in regularly while visiting family in the western suburbs. The hour drive to Lombard on the state roads, our preferred mode to the tollroad, can get tedious, but this is the best choice for us. The owners do a great job with this park. Lakes and open space are very pleasant and the sites themselves, though back-in and somewhat narrow, work fine. Laundry is a bit pricey but spotless. Sycamore itself is pleasant with a nice walkable downtown. The whole... Read More

This is a very strategic RV Park, the closest "traditional" RV Park to Chicago and the NW Suburbs. I-88 is in DeKalb 3mi away, the closest Metra Station is in Elburn 14mi East. This is a beautiful park with two spring fed lakes, so clear you can see the fish. The larger lake has a sand beach and roped swim area. Both lakes are surrounded by mowed walking paths and landscaping. Green lawns are everywhere with lots of flowers and shrubs. The sites are doubled back in, but not tail to tail, they are...

This is a very strategic RV Park, the closest "traditional" RV Park to Chicago and the NW Suburbs. I-88 is in DeKalb 3mi away, the closest Metra Station is in Elburn 14mi East. This is a beautiful park with two spring fed lakes, so clear you can see the fish. The larger lake has a sand beach and roped swim area. Both lakes are surrounded by mowed walking paths and landscaping. Green lawns are everywhere with lots of flowers and shrubs. The sites are doubled back in, but not tail to tail, they are staggered. One central utility pedestal services two units. It is very easy to work with and hookups are a breeze. Sites are FHU 30/50. The roads and pads are all gravel, but lawns and grass surround the areas and are close for walking. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. Wi-Fi is excellent and antennas will bring in lots of tv stations. We used our satellite dome. The bathrooms are big and spacious and very clean, The laundry is very efficient with large commercial machines. This park is clean, quiet, and maintained every day by the owners and family who have their home here. They take pride in their home and it shows in the care they give this park.
