I love spending time at Fox River Recreation. The staff is fantastic, the land is beautiful, and it's all and all a great place. I spent most of last summer there and it was great. I throughly enjoyed everything there.

Not at all like the website pics. I am sure it was a nicer place at one time. They were very nice people and we felt bad leaving, but it was awful. The site next to ours had a huge wet hole that got worse when we hooked up our water. We were gonna stay one night and leave, but...
