2nd annual trip as great as 1st!!!
This was our groups second time camping at John’s. He’s a great host - always accommodating, polite and available. The range in back is great, grounds are nice, porta-potty on site and great mix of shade and sun. Sites are nice and big. We’ll be back again and again.
I don't really want to write this review, but John is such a great host and has a unique campground where you can shoot some guns at his outdoor range. This my second time here at John's property with a group of friends, and once again we had a great time. It is a well cared for property (and a porta potty doesn't hurt either). Even if you have no interest in shooting it is just a nice place to camp and see the stars without having to drive too far from Chicago.
This was our second time at Gun smoke ranch! John was awesome as usual! Justin was an amazing host! Had some friends come with this time. I am pretty sure they had a good time. Loved the shooting range! Hopefully we will be able to come back next year! Thank you so much John and Justin!!!
Superb location; great set up.
Range was great and much bigger than expected.
Great set up by John with tables and fire pit area.
Very very quiet at night and relaxing.
Had some car trouble and they helped out as well, really great camp spot and host.
Tent camping on christmas 🎄
Very quiet and secluded area. The host, John, was great and gave clear directions on the camping sites and use of the range. Justin was a great help with other questions I had and help that I needed.
I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 days of solitude Christmas weekend and will definitely return.
