Quiet setting, lots of shade. Very big lots. Hiking is solid and playing in the creek offers a way to cool off. Very friendly staff and clean restroom with great shower pressure. Would be 5 stars but all sites are only water and electric. Once they get the pool back operational this will be a key spot to get away in the Sauk Valley! I recommend to anyone who will listen.

We had a great time over Memorial Day weekend. The campground was clean, well managed and fun. The newest owners are really trying to make it a very sought after campground. We really enjoyed ourselves and will be back and we will also spread the word.
