What a great GREAT experience on the Great Lakes. The RV Park is a rock throw from Lake Michigan and the views are phenomenal. The people at the marina are superb and we were able to take a chartered fishing trip right out of the marina. Yes, there is no sewer or water hookup and the bath house is not very convenient but everything else makes up for it. Chicago is real close and a day on the Navy Pier is a must. There is easy access to public transportation...will make a point of visiting again and will book more than a few days.

One of the most friendly staff we have come across. The frontage road was under construction but even with having to travel thru the base to get to the dump I would of still went back. One of the most beautiful views you could ask for.

R.L. left this review using the Directory software: Not the easiest place to get into. There was quite a bit of road construction and with 2 roads with railroad tracks in the middle it took a while to find the way to the gate. It would be helpful if the gates were numbered so one would be sure they were at the right one. Also be sure if you're going out in the evening you can find your way back in. The 2 gates we were familiar with both closed early and we were lucky some friendly sailors directed us to the only one open. Again, if it hadn't been for the road construction it would probably be a lot easier. The campground is great, the view can't be beat. We weren't bothered by the lack of water or sewer. We enjoyed the atmosphere of the base, it's a beautiful place.

Outstanding location to view fireworks from either the base or looking up and down the beach to the local municipalities. The staff was great and very helpful. We plan on going back over the labor day weekend. The view out over the lake is wonderful. Yes it's a hike to restroom, but the view on the way made up for it. If your going to ride the Metra into Chicago, walk up the hill by the marina and exit the base by the hospital gate. The Metra station is right across the street.
