LOVED staying at Shady Brook! I was road tripping from Colorado to Illinois, and this was the perfect stop off 80 to spend the night. Brenda was so helpful in explaining the site layout, and was so wonderfully friendly. Everything is well established and well maintained. I stayed at Site 3, in my tent with my dog, and watched the lightning bugs glow around the woods surrounding me. There’s even a POOL I didn’t get a chance to swim in! Definitely bringing my swim suit next time :)
