Russ was great. Very helpful and attentive. The fresh eggs were delicious and the firewood was available. The site left a little to be desired. We had our kids with us. There was a lot of broken glass and rusty nails on our site. We had some challenges with power, but with a bunch of extension cords we made it work.

Response from Russ, the Host, on October 11th, 2021

My apologies for the glass and nails that were where the fire ring used to be. I saw it and intended to clean it up, it was from previous campers putting glass and wood with nails in he fire ring. It slipped my mind but is cleaned up now .I’m sorry for he inconvenience of the 50 amp and 115 extension cords that I had to run to your group. It was a busy weekend with a lot of power hookups. If anyone has any issue like the nails or broken glass please notify me and it will be addressed immediately. The safety of you and your family is very important to me.

R&L Farms is an absolutely beautiful, environment, and you won’t find a better host than, Russ. Not only did he accommodate anything we needed...he went above and beyond to ensure our stay was perfect. Don’t miss out on the gorgeous sunset visible from the top of Russ’ flower field. Definitely going back! Thank you Russ!!

Multiple campsites on the property, but well spaced out. The host, Russ (a retired sheriff's deputy), was super friendly and helpful. He brought firewood out to our site and also ran a long extension cord and brought a flood light for us to use since we were setting up after dark (and then he made a point of staying out of our way for the rest of the trip, but we knew we could get a hold of him any time we needed). We picked a site in the front by the road which was large and convenient, but we did have occasional road & train noise - it didn't wake us, but if you are a light sleeper you might prefer a site in the back. It was a great location to be close to Starved Rock but also a quick trip back to Chicago in the morning. The property has some trails and ravines but we didn't get to explore - maybe next time!

Russ is a terrific guy to work with. I wasn’t able to make the trip and he was super helpful and understanding. I am very much looking forward to get out to the farm soon. Many thanks!
