    We pulled into the RV turnaround as directed (in detailed emailed instructions) to check-in at the gate house. Check in was easy, and there were clear directions to the RV site which is actually down the road from the main resort gate. All sites are pull-thru which was great for us as this was our first time ever camping! They have 45, 50 and 55 foot pull thru sites which are $69 on weekdays but $89 for a weekend night. They have 10% Good Sam 15% Stash Rewards, and just increased their Veteran discount to 20% which we were grateful to use. The pad was level and our only issue was that the 30 amp hook-up wasn't working-- fortunately some on site staff were RVing a couple spaces down- he tested and confirmed it wasn't working, then we used our 50-30amp converter without issue. This is a new resort- (one year old) so everything is fresh and clean. All RV sights overlook a "Lake Canada" (small quary filled lake) which provides for beautiful sunsets. Sites are spaced approx 15 feet apart and each have a picnic table and fire pit with attached grill. The lake is deep and stocked for fishing-- you can keep fish from Lake Canada at the RV park, but catch and release only on the lake and creek in the main resort. We rode our mountain bike on the paths - some of which can be challenging with sandy areas (not suitable for road bikes) and had fun kayaking Lake Canada and nearby Illinois river (brought our own) It is a 7 mile walk to the main resort site - thru a sandy dry creek bed. At the main site there is a kids swimming pond, and a small swimming area on their main lake. They have a beach volley ball area (lots of fun) and several lawn games set up (lawn dice, oversized Connect Four, and Ladder ball) The family loved it. There is a man-made creek which circles the resort for catch and release fly fishing. They have nice kayaks for rentals. You can rent a golf cart for $55/day.- which definitely would be handy as the showers/bathrooms are a 7 min walk away which we thought was kind of far if your camper doesn't have a toilet. We didn't rent one, but noticed that the campers without a toilet did. If you want to drive to the bathroom/showers, you have to drive off site - approx 1/2 mile thru a residential area, turning back onto the highway - going another 1/2 mile and then enter thru the resort's main gate- (approx 5 min) The gate closes at night, and you need to use your key card.The showers are new, spacious and clean -- there are 2 men's and 2 women's showers- each have a roll in shower with handicap bars and hand held shower. We also used the outdoor shower one night-- (there were 2 but only one had hot water turned on) It was great to shower under the stars.Probably the best part of the trip was eating at their farm to table restaurant, "The Wooly Bugger" the food was incredible- we were celebrating and the food and atmosphere was so good that we ended up eating 3 meals there-- the food was consistently excellent and the staff was friendly and pleasant. They have indoor and outdoor seating, hand crafted cocktails, and 2 bon fire pits all with a lake view.It is definitely a Glamping experience- which we appreciated for our first time out-- we needed a friendly, easy experience with a nice view and this fit the bill!On our way out, we had some newbie problems (like having trouble clearing the black tank) then got stuck there for several hours after check-out when our tongue jack fuse blew! Everyone was very helpful and gracious to us. The staff really is great there- so friendly and helpful. We eventually "MacGyvered" it with a piece of wire and were off- feeling great about our first successful trip with our new camper.We will definitely come back again!
