After its April 19 meeting, the Oswego Village Board (Illinois) voted to annex the new Fox Bluff Vacation Cottage and RV Resort, formerly Hide-A-Way Lakes. The village will benefit from the property’s revenue from property, sales, and hotel/motel taxes.
“There’s already been a huge transformation at Fox Bluff, and we’re looking forward to having this upcoming luxury campground destination in our own backyard,” said Village President Troy Parlier. “With the projected tax revenues and travelers stopping at Oswego businesses, it’s a win-win.”
Located along 8045 Van Emmon Road, the land was previously denoted as unincorporated Kendall County. The park has also undergone significant renovations since being purchased in December 2020.
Fox Bluff Owner Lance Beatch has already made significant improvements to the site and continuously worked on repositioning the property to turn it into a premier recreation destination.
The common area buildings were renovated, and new fishing piers, a playground, and a sports court have been added. A resort-style pool with cabanas will be constructed in the coming weeks, and sites will be constantly upgraded.
The property has 600 full hook-up sites and over 100 waterfront sites on the Fox River, Morgan Creek, and multiple spring-fed ponds. RV sites include water, sewer, and electric connections, and guest RVs must be less than ten years old.
Beatch said that the property clean-up was exhausting but successful. Over 225 abandoned RV trailers have been removed, and all the sites were cleared of debris and repositioned.
“Fox Bluff has always been a naturally beautiful place with miles of water frontage and soaring trees, said Beatch. As we continue to reposition and upgrade the property, it will become one of the largest, best located, and finest vacation cottage and RV resorts in North America. We’re committed to creating a safe, upscale destination for families and friends.”
The resort is taking RV reservations for the summer and plans to roll out cottage rentals in the upcoming months. Luxury glamping tents and other unique rental accommodations with views of the multiple water features are also in the works.
