After June 1st the weekend rates are a two day minimum.  This means anybody arriving on Friday after 5pm will pay $30 per person for the weekend.  No exceptions.  However, an arrival after 5pm on Sat. will pay a reduced $20 camping fee.  A Friday arrival regardless of leaving on Sat. will pay the 2 day minimum.
see bottom of page for updates

 Our new check in procedure is one vehicle will be logged and all passengers names entered in the vehicle log.  Please do not be impatient and wait your turn as one vehicle and their passengers are processed.                            Please do not call the office on your way out to the campground asking for address.....gps will get you lost.  You should cut and paste the address below and print a map....otherwise you will get lost with GPS, and having 5 people calling for directions while checking in people does not work, and we must hang up and take care of the campers who got their directions before leaving.

14lb walleye camping season opening weekend

Campers were getting walleye off the south causeway as another great fishing season commences

Wildlife paradise

Herons, Hawks, Turkey Vultures, and Eagles will make your boating trip a venture into one of the Midwests finest wildlife habitats.

Holidays are now three day minimum- memorial day, 4th July, and Labor Day will require three day fee of $45 minimum per person.

We are unable to chase people down who have not paid. On Labor day weekend if you come Friday, Saturday, or Sunday you will pay $45 per person even if you only spend Sunday night here. There will be no early check in fee with a holiday weekend and the gates remain open 7am until 11pm.

June, July, August, and September are now two day minimum regardless what day you come on a weekend.

People have continued to abuse our old policy, and single day camping will only happen in March, April, May, October and November. There will be early check in fees in those months without the two day minimum, but with the two day minimum months you will pay a flat two day camping fee regardless of what time you arrive

 

 
   

 

   
     
    Please come and view our solar prototype tent which will be erected on our seasonal sites on Andrus.  The model will be available to view at the end of June and we will have rental solar tents with a 110 inverter for running a fan, computer, and lights which will run off deep cycle batteries.  We are having a father day sale on seasonal campsites on Andrus.  There are 35 remaining and if you sign up before father's day you will get the $950 seasonal site reduced by $475 for the balance of the 2015 camping season.

We no longer rent kayaks and canoes, and you can contact TJs bait shop in Oregon for canoe rentals.  We no longer carry tubes for tubing, but you can get an inexpensive tube at the Wal Mart in Dixon.

Please stay on the gravel roads as much as possible when the ground is wet.  We will recover damage for vehicles who spin or damage the grass.  Please do not move picnic tables or firepits.  We have lost over 10k dollars of picnic tables in floods over the last 11 years because campers move the tethers and tie downs.

The Memorial Day weekend had great fishing and it appears that the Father's Day ethanol tanker car derailment and fish kill has fully recovered.   Walleye, small mouth bass, drum, carp, channel cat, northern, and more species everyday.  Finally people are catching fish again at the best kept secret in Northern Illinois

Please excuse our website.  Our editor had been frontpage 2003 and Microsoft pulled the plug on a frontpage designed site and we can only do test additions with visual studio until we get an alternative solution.
