We had a heck of a time finding a campground here. There is nothing that is close to downtown Chicago. That is normal for campgrounds and big cities. We read a lot of reviews. We wanted to find something that was close to a train station so Dad could take the train to work. Unfortunately, it is still a 25 minute drive to the train station.
The campground itself is very nice. It's a members only campground. You have to belong to a club to stay here. Many of the people have paid dues to stay here. We thought the place would clear out yesterday, but it looks as if most of the campers stay put and the people just leave. The place is basically full. Most of the people have golf carts that they drive around. We feel like outsiders because we don't have one. There is a 24 acre lake that is really pretty.

Mama is happy because the laundry room is an easy walk. We are at a 50 amp site, so we can run both air conditioners. We couldn't do that in OH because we were in a 30 amp site. We were in the shade and it was cooler there, so it wasn't a big deal. It's hot here, so it's really nice to be able to run both air conditioners. Mama is really happy that the electricity is included in our rate. We can run the AC as much as we want and not worry about a huge bill.
Our experience so far, is that people are not as nice here as in Ohio. No one seems to want to pet us. What is up with that?
