This weekend we had a trial run in the RV at a campground near Rockford, Illinois, our home town. We were there to camp with my sister's family, the Moberlys, and to have Brendan dedicated at Rock Church on Sunday. Rock Church is the church Patsy and I were married in and where I first served as a Pastor so many years ago. Full circle.
Anyway here is the campground review of Paradise Resort in Caledonia:
Cleanliness - 7
Bathrooms - 4 - they were clean, but the showers were cold, small and little stream of water.
Facility fun - 8 - beach on a pond, Kishwaukee river flows through edge of campground, fishing ponds as well, old playground equipment. they had lots of activities too.
Facility usefulness - 6 - Dump station, very small camp store, no laundry facility.
Nearby attractions - 7 - Rockford and Chicago are close by. Edward's Apple Orchard is close too.
Staff - 8 - Pretty friendly folks, loved the trick or treat.
Natural surroundings - 8 - nice shade trees and ponds, but close to a railroad, with short trains even at night..
Roominess 7 - It was a large campground, but it was extremely busy with a huge portion dedicated to long term campers.
Value - 6 - we paid $37 a night with only grey water sewer no wifi. No club discounts on weekends, but it is a Passport America campground during the week.
Overall - 7
