Big rock is in the middle no where. Its a long drive to get supplies of any kind at big rock.

Not really... Sugar Grove is just right down the road. Plenty of places to get supplies and several nice restaurants.

Paul wolf is minutes to walyworld, major grocery stores ,movies and so on.
Sugar Grove has a few things to offer.
Been to them both several times. Big rock is brand new cg and has no shade and gravel roads (dusty), where Paul wolf is more mature and offers both shade and sun.
Neither park has showers but we do visit them both.

There is also a koa.

There is train service out to the western suburbs. The two recommendations in Kane County are both close to direct highway access into Chicago. Burnidge Forest/Paul Wolff campground is not only close to I-90 but is on the same road as the Milwaukee RR west line commuter train station. For the Big Rock campground you could always take I-88 into the city or the BNSF commuter from Aurora The Union Pacific from Elburn would be an alternative. Keep in mind the routes go to different stations in Chicago so one might be better for you than the other.
