Dresden Lodging
« on: Aug 13, 2002, 02:40 »
When I worked at Dresden, I found this camp
site to be the best place to stay, bar none.
The people are the best, the facilities are
like an exclusive park and if you have ever
experienced the winters, you will appreciate
how close it is to work.

If I were back into doing outages, I would
not hesitate to stay there again.

Since I grew up in that area, I guess I should be able to shed some light on it.

You have the Bulls, Bears, Blackhawks, White Sox, and Cubs for pro sports.
You have Depaul, Illinois, Northwestern, and Northern Illinois for universities.
Your best bet for a "big" town is Joliet, or just go to Chicago.
Morris is fun if you like the hometown "little" bars and grills.
Cog Hill in Lemont, Sandwich, Channahon all have nice golf courses.
There is a big racetrack in Joliet if you like that sort of thing.
There is plenty of hunting and fishing if you like that.
I guess that should do it.

I had a bad experience with Fox River Bed n Breakfast in 2006, but it is now under new management and new management even made right the money that was owed to me by the previous owner. Here is their website:

Dresden Generating Station housing help!
« Reply #7 on: Nov 09, 2012, 04:50 »
So first off I would love to thank everyone here especially the big posters in the POSS and BMST sections of this forum. I combed though all of the forums and bought recommended books and passed my POSS and BMST on the first try (woot!!) So yesterday i go offered a job as an Equipment Operator (still pending physical) at Dresden Generating station, I currently live in Round Rock Tx so its kind of hard to get to the area to look for housing and I'm not sure what are good parts of Morris and the surrounding cities, does anyone have any recommendations on a good place to live apartment wise (not sure about getting a house the first year to make sure i like the job) Any information about Housing or getting on my Feet in that area would be very very much appreciated. Also any information on the culture of the plant as well.


P.S. I hope I placed this in the right section please correct me if i did not and Thank you in advance for any responses
