Kick back or stay active at Woodsmoke Ranch

Our campground is the perfect year-round retreat that is truly your own. 

Woodsmoke Ranch exists as a get away for people that live in or near Chicago and want to be able to get away.  We are here for people who want their kids to feel safe playing outdoors.  Our ranchers come here to get away and relax without having to drive far or break the bank on a vacation.  Our campground is surrounded by trees and wildlife, rolling hills, wooded areas and ravines to explore.  Its your perfect destination for a quick weekend get away or a long leisurely vacation.  We have two pools and there is always something going on for kids and adults. 


Our campground provides a unique opportunity unlike any other for you to own your own land in a private RV park.  Each site on our nearly 400 acres of land is completely prepared for you and your recreational vehicle.  Visit our Real Estate area to learn more.  Our campground is also located close to the Illinois River, Starved Rock State Park and many other natural wonders the rover valley has to offer.  Hop in the car and in 5 minutes you can be driving down scenic Route 6 soaking in the surroundings.  We offer a wide variety of amenities as well as being a short distance to some of the best hiking and activities Illinois has to offer.

Woodsmoke amenities


Woodsmoke has two large pools which are open from Memorial Day to Labor Day each year. During the week we rotate which is open, and both are usually accessible on the weekends. We always staff lifeguards when the pools are open. Each pool contains a kiddie pool for the little ones, and a diving board. They are within walking distance or a short drive from anywhere in the park.

Public Restrooms / Showers
We have public restrooms and shower facilities located both at Western Town and by Pool 2. The Western Town Restroom and Shower facilities are open year round for your convenience.
Western Town
A defining and iconic part of Woodsmoke Ranch is our Western Town. It has been the site of countless memories for our ranchers, including everything from Hay Rides, Haunted Houses and Craft Fairs. There is always something going on.
Adult Lounge
Located in our Western Town, we have an adults only lounge which features a fire place, pool table, plenty of seating and tables to spread out on, and a small library.
We have a coin operated Laundry Facility located in Western Town so you don’t need to worry about wasting space in your RV or camper with a washer and dryer.
Stocked Lakes for Fishing
Our campground features 2 lakes which we keep stocked with fish. Come to one of our fishing competitions, or come to just watch the ducks that flock to our park lounge on the shoreline.

We have 3 pavilions in the campground which provide common gathering areas for events such as Wingo, Kids Movie Nights or Live Music. The pavilion in Western town is a beautiful indoor area which is perfect for hosting an event. Our second pavilion is located next to Pool 2, and is a perfect area for large functions. Many a child from several generations has learned to ride there bike here.

The Woodsmoke Café
Located in Western Town, our Woodsmoke Café is ready and waiting with Cold Ice Cream after a long day of swimming, or Hot Pizza for those nippy nights spent by the fire. There is something for everyone, and the food is always top notch.
Horse Stables
Woodsmoke Ranch was originally just what it sounds like, a ranch. While its grown into so much more over the years, we still maintain a wonderful stable which allows ranchers to be able to board their horses here on site.
We offer options for storage of larger items such as boats or jet skis and just about anything else you might need to round out your amazing experiences. If your interested in finding out more, just ask!
