This is mostly a residential park with some residual camping sites and tent sites. There are many lakes in the area, which used to be coal mining pits and strip mines. The campground has a swimming pond and fishing ponds, although recent rains flooded the ponds. The water has a heavy concentration of hydrogen sulfide, probably from previous mining activities, so bring a water filter. Most residents buy their drinking water locally. This is a quiet, gated community and the residents are generally friendly. The park has many local activities. - Dick and Linda

I am very disappointed. I read the review of this park and decided to call them to see about staying there for a few nights. We don't live far from this park. They are NOT open to the public. It is strictly a membership park which means one has to purchase a lot. Although they will let nonmembers tour the park, they do not even have any available sites to stay on to check out the park. Guest passes are only available if one knows a person who is a member. Otherwise, one needs to purchase a lot to stay here. I believe campers need to know this about Woodsmoke Ranch. - pinkjeep

We have had a permanent site for 10 years now. Prior to that we used guest camping. Best campground ever. They have the best activities and bands. Always something to do and the food rocks in the kitchen. We love going in the fall when the deer come right up to our campsite and a coyote has a den in the hill at the ravine in the back of our campsite. THANK YOU WOODSMOKE!!! - jjrichb

We were visiting a permanent (6 months per year) resident, and were able to use one of the visiting slots. Well, groomed and cared for park. Really, probably one of the best campgrounds we have been to. It's out in the corn fields away from towns. Everything worked and a minor problem we had with hooking-up was addressed quickly by the grounds crew. - zen_letitbe

First night of a 3 week trip made us question if buying a camper was a wise decision. Super friendly staff, down home folk--drove us to a site where pull through was easy but a dead limb above us gave pause. Most of the residents are workers, some with families who live there and act accordingly, with fireworks going off till at least 2:30 a.m. Sounded like a competition with someone farther away. The roar of the diesel engine starting up next door at 4 am finally lulled me to sleep. Had read a July 4 review that mentioned the fireworks competition too but thought surely a week later the holiday was over--alas not so. Owner would not answer the phone after closing time so could not complain. Dog poop right beside utility hookup from the pooch next door & the grass was so high I wouldn't have seen it but my super sniffer detected it. Never realized till we saw signs at future camps that fireworks are not permitted, that there are so many redneck low lifes that get a charge out of keeping people up all night with loud noises, that they have to be told not to disturb people. If you HAVE to stay there, ask first if the fireworks show has ended, unless that sort of thing doesn't keep you up. Shop around. I you have to stay here ask if the person shooting off fireworks all night has stopped. Didn't see pool but some mentioned one. Didn't use the showers and bathrooms, curtain hanging over the opening with a chair outside were not disgusting but were among the worst encountered during a 3 week tour. Price seemed high for what we had to endure. - mzmo

We had called this park twice before arriving, and had not received a call back. We went anyway. Roads throughout the park were bumpy, muddy, full of potholes. There were many permanent residents in broken down, trash strewn places that should have been bulldozed. Crowded, non-level, barely paved sites obscured by fallen leaves. I saw a Pitbull, off leash, and mentioned it to the owner. I saw things happening that led me to believe that "anything goes" and if there are any rules in place, they are certainly not enforced. We drove through the park a couple of times, with the owner and another fellow. I feared for the safety of our rig and our small dog. Luckily we found another place to stay and left. - mrsweeble

It is open year round. There are lots of permanet residents there. The dogs run free but are friendly. The trees infested with carpenter ants. There is only wifi by the office with no shade. We were there over the 4th and firecrackers were going off until about 3 a.m. - hap

This is a huge park! If you're road tripping and need a stop for the night, it's likely they will have a spot! They are over 400 acres and about 400 sites, although only one area is geared for short term stays. They have pools, a nice store and really nice, very helpful people. We needed a site where we did not have to back up (trailer) and they put us in a field which was perfect for our dog to run! - emtjab

The campground was very poorly maintained with very rough and pot holed roads, the roads were very dusty and heavily traveled with speeding golf carts and off road ATV type vehicles, woke up the next morning with 1/8" of dust on RV and truck. Fire works all evening until they either ran out or got tired of them. the sites were very close, for what should have been maybe 3 sites they had 6 if there had been a camper beside us we could not have put out our awning. There appeared to be no rules; when asked another camper said others have been told if you don't like it leave. Well I will not be back. Keep on looking. do not stop here. - Chief Dave

The "guard house" was abandoned, the roads almost impossible, the site electric threatened electrocution, the water stank, and we didn't feel safe leaving the coach for an excursion. Very rough people as "greeters", no site map, and we feared for our safety -slept with the pistol loaded right next to my head. - Frances and Sparky

Nice park right along the river. Wooded area with most sites having some shade. gravel roads, Electric hook-up in site #5 tested OK with my meters. Friendly host. - Tireman9

There are 2 loops here. We stayed one night in the Great Falls loop. Roads are paved and sites are gravel. A little tight for big rigs, especially getting out. Dump would be difficult. River barges passed right behind our very large site. Good and bad since they were interesting to watch, but sound a horn when passing. Huge trees. Sites could use some sprucing up. - cincychic

The shower house was clean but needed better ventilation, it stank.
The roads are asphalt in good shape. The sites are gravel. The views are good for campers, but none for tents. One host is quiet and friendly, the other nit picky. There's an ice cream shop in the park at the ball field.
30 amp at camper sites. Shared water that needs flushing each use, lots of rust in line.
No OTA TV, satellite iffy.
Several tree need trimmed on the roads and sites. - Hhtjr

Mainly a seasonal park, but they do offer a few Overnight sites. Grounds are not maintained at all and the majority of the seasonal sites look like no one has been out to them in years. No swimming of any type (pool or lake). Nice newer playground and entry with a keypad locking gate. I asked if they had fishing, the lady said yes they had a stocked pond but in her own words it was pretty "grown up" I guess she was not kidding because I could not even find the pond! Weeds - Yikes! I don't think we will return, the place seems deserted and creepy and offers nothing for recreation. - cdm74

We had a level, gravel, pull through, FHU site that was satellite friendly. The Wi-Fi was fine for our minimal (e-mail and web surfing) needs. The bathrooms were clean and the laundry facility was large, clean, and reasonable. I saw no recycling. - Jerry S

This is easy to get to/from I-55. Interior roads are all dusty or muddy gravel. If you are north of the lake you get constant highway noise from I-80 but south of the lake, where we were, the highway noise is much less. Our site had a level concrete pad to park on with utilities well placed. Sites are a decent size with lots of grass. Utilities worked well. Wifi was variable. Verizon signal was good. The attractions for families are a choice of swimming in the nice pool or a very large wading pond. An air conditioned clubhouse with a TV and games. A lot of things have been updated since our last stay two years ago so things are looking very nice. - cwier

As noted, this is a membership park. We stayed here for five nights and found getting a reservation easy using email during their off season. Staff was friendly at reception and whenever encountered in park. Roads are gravel and can be dusty when dry and a bit muddy when wet. My own observation is a number of contractors, workers, etc are using the park as their home base (with families) and as our site was off main road, a lot of constant traffic flowed past. We had a small back in site going back to back with another RV and one on each side of us (they were optimizing their space). Other areas appeared to have more space between RVs then ours. Appears much to do for families with a man made beach, swimming pool, fishing lake, etc. No dog park however plenty of room to walk around and a 10' leash policy. Wi fi works well but better late evening. There is a $10 (refundable) fee for a gate pass. Plenty of restaurants, box and local shops in immediate area (off US 59). Main item for me with park is location is between two major interstates - I-55 and I-80 which has heavy truck traffic...noise level very high. This is a good location to make your way for trains, etc if coming to visit Chicago area. We would come back again but try to get a different site from a noise and space perspective. - ownedafew

Nice place to be while waiting for new truck brakes. Very friendly. A local couple camping there "took us in". Nice grounds, excellent paved biking/walking trail along the river. Very wooded. Only negative: on a busy truck route. If you want full restroom facilities, camp in season at Pottawatamie. It was already closed for the season when we were there. We were at Chippewa which is further from Bourbonnias and closer to the busy road. The river drive on the west side is scenic and worth the time. Take the Warner Bridge Rd. to get across. - snsfry

Two campgrounds here. If you are in a bigger rig I would suggest the Chippewa campground. It is more open and easier to get in and out of. The Potawatomie campground is where we stayed and the loops are very tight. Heavily wooded on this side though some nice sites and very private. This park also has a great 10 mile paved bike trail. We would return here but stay in the Chippewa campground next time. - janieD

There is water located through out the campgrounds and there is plenty of good sites to choose from. Good place for base camp to explore the area around Kankakee. - Fordiesel250

Easy in, easy out. Big rig capable. No sewer but perfect for a one-night stop. They give you a small discount on food in the casino restaurants (how else will they get non-gamblers in there otherwise?). Our dinner at 99 Hops was excellent and so was our server. Buffet breakfast was lukewarm but was included in the campsite rate. - monamonaco

Easy place to get into with big rig, if you can't get a pull through any outer loop site that has 50 amp looked like it could take a 45 foot coach. The outside loop sites the concrete was short but since it was dry no problem back off the edge and lots of rv's doing it. You are in a busy area but with all the trees surrounding this place it almost felt like the country, I was surprised. Most of the sites good for sat but of course the one we had blocked 129 but no problem missing the HD. Oh if you are into water parks at the back is a trail that takes you to Splash Station. We stayed a couple of days for business in area it was convenient and enjoyable. Plenty open area for the dog. All the outside loop had trees at back of space so the campers with smaller rigs felt at home. We'll go back some day. - what next

This is a very neat, clean, quiet RV park behind a hotel next door to the casino. There are a few pull-thru sites down the middle and back-ins all around the edge. There are very few trees. Satellite TV is easy! There is no cable and no sewers but there is a convenient dump station. Sites are just long enough for a 38' motorhome to fit on the concrete drive but there is enough gravel in the front of the site to park your car. There is a concrete patio and a picnic table. You get a $5 discount at any of the 3 casino restaurants, and free breakfast in the hotel lobby. We would stay here agin. We HAVE stayed here again! - SusanRon

This campground is very "Family" friendly. They encourage you to bring your Non-camping family and friends in to spend quality time together. The owners and other campers are very friendly. It's quiet and cozy. My teenage son enjoyed riding on the golf cart trails and swimming in the pond. We did not see too many other kids, mostly older people. We will definitely go back and invite our other camping friends. - 3mfamily

Way too far off the beaten track for an overnight, which we did and no reason to make this a destination stop. The lake is just a mosquito hole and it is very close to a busy train track. It is too bad, the owners are super nice, it is just the property that is so sorry. Almost all the sites are used by what appear to be long term residents. Do yourself a favor and just keep driving. - axtoncampers
