Frequently Asked Questions

How do I reserve guest camping?
You can call the office during normal working hours and make the reservations directly with our staff.  Guest camping has individual camping lots equipped electric and water hookups, cabins, and park models.  The office can be reached at 815-357-6420 option 5.
How do I order a pump out and how long does it take to receive one?
Ordering pump outs is done over the phone by calling 815-357-6420 option 1 and leaving a message clearly with your name and lot number.
For the pump out to be completed we recommend expecting a week to 10 days, but in most instances its much less. For upcoming busy weekends expect longer wait times so plan ahead.
What do I need to have a permit for?
We recommend that any work being done on the outside of your trailer should have a permit, including cutting trees down, adding to your deck, building screenhouses, and replacing any roofs. Replacing parts of your deck don’t need one as long as you are not adding additional footage on to it. Work done on the inside of your trailer does not require a permit unless you are doing major renovations. Click here to apply for a permit.
Can I cut down trees on my lot or on common ground?
You first need a permit to cut down trees and you can ONLY cut down dead trees. You can cut down dead trees on common ground, but it is at your own expense. If you feel a dead tree is on common ground and would like the park to cut it down, you must go into the office and add it to the existing list of trees to cut down. The park only allows a certain number of trees to cut down per year, so there may be a waiting period for that to be completed.
How do I get guest passes?

All visitors are required to show a Guest Pass at the front gate. Guest Passes are available for purchase during open hours at the Office for $4 or at the front gate for $8.
