Illinois Beach State Park: Illinois Beach is unique for a couple of reasons. It’s close enough to Chicago for Windy City residents to be able to bike there, via the North Shore Channel Trail. And you’re allowed to bring alcohol with you!

Chain O Lakes State Park: One of my personal favorites! Don’t miss this photo essay from the park, which features some of the lakes, wildlife, and flowers that can be seen in the popular park.

Starved Rock State Park: This is one of the most popular campgrounds in the state of Illinois. Waterfalls, ancient rock formations, and sandstone cliffs make the park a scenic paradise. Starved Rock has 129 class A campsites available.

Potato Creek State Park: Wanna drive to Indiana? If you’re up for it, you will discover a massive park with a 327-acre lake and more than 300 campsites.

Indiana Dunes State Park: Indiana’s other awesome camping spot is the Dunes state park along Lake Michigan. The cool thing about this park is you can hike to the top of 200-foot sand dunes and look out over the lake, the nearby towns, and even the Chicago skyline, which you can sometimes see from 50 miles away.
