    One night at this amazing riverfront location. We had common history with Dave (Hooah!) and enjoyed swapping stories about the Army. We were given permission to have a BBQ/bonfire with relatives who live nearby. Spectacular sunset, firepits burning all along the river, good conversation...the best of river life. For truck/camper combos, it's a long, narrow driveway. If you're a good backer-upper, no problem. We are 25' TT and had room to Y-turn into the camping spot. Easy if you know what you're doing! Thank you Dave...we'll be back!

    We stayed at On the Mighty Fox River in October 2021. We arrived after dark but got settled in quickly with the help of Panhed60. The next morning he showed us his amazing cottage and bits about his travels and career. Thank you Panhed60!

    I could go on and on but I’m gonna keep this short. Beautiful property right along the river, with gracious and friendly hosts. If you have a larger rig, you will need to put some effort into backing it in. My dogs loved having a little freedom. It’s a 5 minute drive to a train station that will take you to Downtown Chicago in around an hour. Thank you for the awesome stay! I wish we could have stayed… forever! 😂

    We were greeted with great enthusiasm by Panhed60 and we're set up in no time with our space and hookup. Our stay was nothing short of relaxing and entertaining. Our dog had all the liberty to wander around and just sitting by the firepit, with the river and the sound of the creek by us was all we needed. Panhed60 definitely goes above and beyond when hosting a guest. Thank you so much!!
