We've been visiting Blackwell for almost 40 years, but this is the first time we've camped there. We only live about 7 miles from there so it's an easy weekend. This is an oasis in the middle of suburbia. Heavily wooded sites, with level crushed gravel pads and now, electric at all sites, according to the attendant at the gatehouse. There are no water or sewer hookups, but there are spigots throughout the park. There is an adequate dump station, although it is not all that level, so your tanks may not fully empty. I remarked to my wife that whether we traveled three hours to Wisconsin or drove 7 miles to Blackwell, the end result is the same. Quiet camping in a lovely area. The one downside to this campground is that it's only open on weekends, except for holiday weeks when it's open for the entire week. Also making reservations entails calling the District HQ and booking over the phone. There is a three day reservation window which pretty much eliminates spur of the moment camping. The camping permits arrive by snail mail, so very last century. Still, it adds to the charm I suppose. We'll be back often. In the summer the crowds in Wisconsin can be frustrating, so this is a nice alternative if you just want a quiet weekend to camp without dealing with all the traffic. We camped here in a Motorhome.

A beautiful, heavily-wooded oasis in an area where RV parks are otherwise non-existent. Previous user pretty much covered this park. I would have given a 10 rating had there been water and sewer hookups. Signage at entry is small and easy to miss plus there is no street address and the park admin did not know GPS coordinates. It is (41,83668/-88.17969). One great plus is that over 65 get two free nights per year so our stay was free (this site will not let you enter a "0" for nightly rate, so I put in "$1" We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

We came across this park by accident, and I am glad we did. What a hidden gem. The campground is in the Blackwell Forest Preserve in DuPage County, IL, and it has some very scenic views. There are a lot of picnic shelters, and they seem to be used daily. The grounds are maintained beautifully. My husband was in awe of the wonderful way the park incorporated the wild plant life and the grass around all the sites. There are 64 sites, with about 16 sites for RV's. Most sites would be perfect for a pop up, but go online and talk to the staff prior to booking if you have a larger unit. Most sites have shade, but the sites from about 1-14 have none to speak of. It seems like it would get pretty hot in that section without the trees for shade. The lake is fantastic, and there are boat rental's available and fishing from the shoreline is available. The campground only has camping on Friday and Saturday nights, and non over night guests need to leave by 9 pm since the preserve closes at sunset and the campground closes the gate at 9. The Ranger is stationed at the gate all night, and it does give a sense of security with the locked front gate. Even though we did not use the bathroom facilities, they were spic and span, and we would not hesitate using them. The dump station is easily accessible ,and since there are only about 16 sites that would be utilizing it, the process is very quick. We will be back for sure!! We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
