I have been visiting Emerald Trails Campground in Crete, IL yearly for at least 5 years now & it is exactly what I want when I go camping. This is a very clean & quiet Campground. I am happy for the way it is & I feel it is because of its rules. I seem to think the manager makes sure your liberty doesn't interfere with the overall enjoyment of the neighboring campers. I go camping for the peace & quiet life. The grounds are beautiful & serene as can be seen on their main website. I can completely agree & believe in Daniel L.'s comments. I didn't know this website existed before today & am happy to join the satisfied customers who have left comments. Thank you Emerald Trails for being my oasis so close to Chicago. I have purchased items from the store & was glad they had them there. I felt every thing was a good deal & would recommend other quiet seeking campers or vacationers going into Chicago to try them out.

This is one fun campground! The lady that checked us in was quite amusing! She is an elderly lady that warned us (myself and 2 guy friends) to behave ourselves, "I'm an old woman and I need my sleep. Don't make me come out of my house at night. I won't be nice," she says in an eastern European accent. She reminds me of my Polish grandmother. When we went to little store she has there in the morning to see if she had some cooking oil, she had none in the store. She asked, "what you looking for?" We told her. She says, "you know, you were good boys last night I be right back." She came back to the store with a big bottle of oil that was only about 1/8th full. She says, "here, use this. I have another bottle upstairs. You use this up for me." We thanked her and she says, "what you making?" We told her fried potatoes. She says, "you got onion, you got to have onion." Nope, we forgot that too! She huffed at us and says, "you no move, be right back!" She went back upstairs to her apartment and brought us an onion. She says, "you do it right or don't do it! Now go make you breakfast!" and shooed us out of the store....Can't wait to see here again next summer!

Pros: Reminds me of an old KOA

The Campground was nice but the owner of the place is the most rudest person and prejudice person I have ever met in my life. We are of Hispanic descent and are very well manner and delightful people (besides the point) she made many references about the Mexicans in front of us how she didn't like are descent, saying things like...well you know how you mexicans are..always cheating people...to things like; I will keep all you mexicans together to keep you away from the well to do people. This lady NEEDS to be reported to the better business bureau. She is very prejudice! so unless your white I say stay away.

My family and I visited the Emerald Trails to spend the weekend out in the woods camping. Their rates were good and their location was right in the woods, so, it was the perfect location. Upon arriving at our cabin, we were at first a little taken-back because inside, there were leaves and dirt, but after 10-20 minutes of clean-up, we moved inside and began to enjoy our weekend. They have a campfire available and are free of any 'new-age' appliances which really adds to the camping feel. The cabin was very large and seated all 4 of us! They offer dinner at the main lodge which we tryed once and was very pleased with. Their support was kind and courteous making the whole experience a success! I definatly look forward to coming back here during our children's Christmas break!
