Hi there, at Chicago Camping we aim to list every public campground (i.e., state park) within a three-hour drive of Chicago. We know that a number of privately-owned for-profit campgrounds exist in the Chicago area as well – too many for us to list them all.

If you are associated with one of these private campgrounds and would like to be profiled on this website, please send an email to scott (at) and we’ll reply with the details on how to get featured.

A modest, one-time fee is required, which will more than pay for itself with just a couple of new bookings. And you’ll get your campground seen by the more than 15,000 Chicago area residents who read in the spring and summer months.

Alternately, give us a shout if you’d like to purchase banner ads or other forms of advertising. Contact us anytime at scott (at) Happy camping!
