No Longer a KOA
This campground isn’t longer a KOA Campground, but is called Nature’s Way RV Park (https://natureswayrvpark.co). We stayed one night on the Fourth of July and I think that is the longest I would stay. It’s not a horrible campground, but it needs some TLC. The sites badly needed gravel as there was weeds growing among the rocks. My sewer line was cracked/chipped and wouldn’t hold the hose by itself. I had to hold it when draining the tanks. We didn’t get on wifi as they monitor your usage. If you plan to stream, plan on them cutting your internet. The shower was clean, but it was basically three shower heads in three toilet-sized stalls. If you are over 6ft, you’d be able to see your neighbor. Not appealing. All in all it was functional for our purpose of one night.

Great Stop/ Friendly Folks
Stopped for the evening and found this place to be perfect for our overnight stay. We had time for the 15 minutes drive to Starved Rock SP to see some of that area. Great little KOA not far from I-80 but far enough so no highway noise. Nothing fancy but perfect for us. No complaints here.

Nice Park
Made reservations, had to change them twice. No problem at all and no additional charges. Camp ground hosts are very friendly and helpful. The park is very quiet. The only drawback is the dump station is on the right side if the park when you leave , not the left. They do provide a long house if needed. Will stay there again.

Not Worth The Time
Stopped in and tried to get a week but was sent packing they don't like people staying over one night I was told. Lady on duty was rude 😒 and told me they preferred one night stays and not to worry as they wouldn't be a KOA after the 2021 season. This is not how KOA's treated me in the past wouldn't recommend.

Not Typical Koa
It was cute and the bathrooms were clean but it’s very small. Everyone is packed in side by side

Cute Indeed!
A very nice and quiet little place. They have a pool, a small playground, clean bathrooms and the right environment to let your kid cycle around the campground on its own. We had a pleasant stay!

We have stayed here before. Always nice and quiet. Nice people too. You are driving past lots of corn fields. Don’t worry you will like it!

Great Campground
Full hookup plus WiFi. More than we usually pay to camp $40.00 but was worth it. Nice grounds to roam or run. Surrounded by corn and soybean fields.

Perfect Stopover
This is an old koa from the seventies. Well maintained but small. Mostly tent and water-electric sites but some long pull thru full hook ups. Far enough from the interstates to be quiet, but very conveniently close.

Weekend Getaway
Stayed in the deluxe cabin, which was really cute. Came for the weekend to hike & sight see. We did cool weather & thunderstorms, but that didn’t stop the fun. Staff was super friendly. Will definitely stay again.
