Battlefield 217 Paintball is one of the greatest place to play paintball in Illinois. There are many field but Battlefield tops my list. The owner is very nice and so are the home field players. I love being a part of the home team and going there. It has woodsball and a mix of speedball for anyone that decides to play some speedball. No one complains and everyone I have brought has come back. Battlefield most likely has the lowest prices in all of Illinois. I would recommend this to male, female, ages 9-99.

If you are into woodsball, then this is your field! There's acres of woods - real woods with lots of brush if you feel like suiting up in camo and being stealthy. There are different sections of the field that allow for varied playing styles. Many of the trees are large enough to hide behind, but some of the more cleared parts of the field are spotted with pallets and other wooden barricades if that's your method of playing. Yet the woods and brush provide plenty of opportunities to flank those bunker campers... There's also a defensive-able hill, an old bus, a really small fort/tower, and did I mention plenty of woods? Woodsball is all about the woods, and this field has them.

This field is a true diamond in the rough, run as a "ma and pop" operation with big aspirations. The owners are extremely friendly and knowledgable. The regulars and frequents are age diverse players (teens to 40+) which are also a great group. There aren't any cliques, or hotheads, or drama during the matches - which I have no doubts would not be tolerated. Make no mistake, people play hard, but everyone's really out there to have a great time. After the matches, I've seen some show off their welts and congratulate their opponent on a great shot. That's how cool the environment is at this field. I always leave with a sense of calm and euphoria which can't be said for other fields.

Last but not least, the rates are very affordable. Not much more I can say than that.

Even if it's a long distance trip, it's well worth the drive. I personally travel over an hour to the Battlefield because the local fields just don't compare in terms of fun per dollar. If you have doubts about this field, please have no trepidations to come out solo and try it. You'll leave having made new friends, and you'll be begging your local friends to come out with you next week. All that said, I hope to shoot, err I mean see, ok fine I did mean shoot you on the Battlefield!

Lets start off with this field is woodsball ONLY! I personally know the owners and they said they may put in a speedball field but main priority is woodsball!

Now back to the review. This field is literally in the woods! The branches on the trees are not shaved off like other parks, they try to make it as realistic as possible. They use the vegitaion as cover in some parts, they do keep it under control in some parts so you can actually walk around! For other bunkers they use wood so it looks more realistic than a random inflated bunker.

On to the owners these people are amazing and just fun to hang around. In between games you can go over and have a friendly talk with them and just hang out.

The people that go there love the woodsball setting and get dressed in camo. In most fields people are arrogant and wont talk to you. Here people are nice you can walk up to them and just chat away for hours about anything. They will give you paint and everything just nice people. Also if you get them out or they get you out they congratulate you and just talk about it saying how good you both were.

The prices cannot be beat anywhere, and I do mean anywhere!
