  1. I would like to check the park but I’m not sure of the reservation process while to take up my pals over there. May be that I could look through it before setting with a final row.

  2. This is a great place to camp. My parents took us here several times as children. Now I take my kids every chance I get.

  3. I want to bring my dad to Lake Shabbona for Father’s Day, but I don’t know where. What’s the best campground for fishing?

  4. If you want great fishing and waterfront camping where you can fish from your campsite, about 25 minutes west of Shabonna is where the Rock River has channel cat, small mouth and walleye……you can drive out to the islands on causeways it has been a great find….I like Shabbona but the camping is away from the lake.

  5. Does this camp site offer waterside camping/fishing? If not, do you know any places in Illinois (near Will County or within an hour’s drive) where overnight shoreline camping is available with fishing? I seem to be striking out in finding info.

  6. I am planning on camping at Shabbona the last weekend of September. Which sites are good for tenting?

  7. Hi, I wasn’t able to find the cabin rental here on your site. Could you please send week end rates, and if there is opening in the caabins or camp ground for this week end.

  8. We have a large group of 14 or so people coming out there on the 14th of July for the day. There are 3 young children that will be part of the group and I was wondering if they would be able to fish in the kids fishing pond even if we are not camping in the campsite area? Thanks
