East Woods on the IL River

3 sites 路 RVs, Tents25 acres 路 Ottawa, IL
This 25 acre parcel was once owned by a sand mining company. There are mounds and valleys all along the Illinois River. We purchased the property in 1987, and cut in the road. The city of Ottawa recently annexed the property into the Ottawa city limits. It's like owning our own wild park.

The Vaudeville Urban Farm Fun!

8 sites 路 RVs, Tents1 acre 路 Chicago, IL
Twenty years of growing this farm... Not what grows here but the farm itself! Stone and brick pulled from the ground till we found the beautiful earth beneath and built an incredible community around it. Or rather, it grew itself from the energy that surrounds it. It's a special spot where you may happen upon a fire in the sugar shack while we boil city collected sap into maple syrup or have an open jam night with world class jazz musicians. Enjoy the morning serenade of our rooster! Really, just come and be here. Though we think we're pretty cool, a few things to note that you may not think are so cool: There is a train that runs directly behind the farm. Light sleepers, may want to bring ear plugs. Bring your tent to The Vaudeville! (RVs, campers, trailers, vans please see the ** at the bottom). Our urban farm is smack in the middle of Chicago only a 10 minute bike or train ride from Downtown, Lake Michigan, The Mag Mile and all Chicago has to offer! Bike the Lake Shore Trail, walk the 606, kayak the Chicago River, catch a blues show or Hawks game or just relax with the goats and chickens in the 9,000 square foot farm that we absolutely love to share with fellow campers! ** We have stopped hosting RVs, campers/vans, pull behinds and larger vehicles because we are finding it difficult to get them in the entrance gate but if you feel amazingly capable with your backing in skills in your rig and you're super patient, laid back and extra cool, let us know and we may be able to make it work!! :)

Willowthorne

6 sites 路 RVs, Tents9 acres 路 Lynwood, IL
A stay at Willowthorne offers a unique getaway experience with fresh air and natural beauty where the sunsets are gorgeous and the stars light up the sky! Our farm is host to nine acres of agricultural space that combines organic farming practices, education and hospitality. We offer tent camping for small groups and retreats. We also allow space for small RVs or Campers (no power hook-up available at this time). Our campgrounds overlook the pond and willow trees. Our area offers an incredible variety of recreational and sightseeing activities. Find peace and tranquility among nature, or travel just 25 miles north to visit the heart of Chicago! We are central to many Illinois, Indiana and Michigan State Parks and beaches. Many good restaurants and breweries are also nearby. There is much to see and do around our quiet little corner. We would like to note that our farm is host to ten apiaries and chickens. The hives are a good distance away from the campsites so guests are safe. We sell honey and organic eggs (based on availability). The honey is a real treat - the spring harvest is a lovely delicate, floral flavor from feed on the blueberry blossoms. In the the summer months they feed on black locust and clover, creating a wildly rich and delicious honey! We also offer seasonal vegetables from our gardens, depending on whats sprouting up. Please ask upon arrival if you are interested in any of these fresh goodies. We are an organic farm with bees and native pollinating insects. Broadcast pesticides, ie. Raid yard guard or similar products are not allowed on our property. You can spray your skin, clothing and personal property with mosquito repellent in your designated camping area. Thank you for your commitment to conserving the natural ecosystem. Please advise that we are a upick blueberry farm, open to the public three days each week during the month of July. Families come to pick berries and enjoy the overall farm experience. While the path to some of the blueberry patches is the same path to the campgrounds, the campground itself is your private space during your stay. Upick guests are not allowed to walk across the campgrounds. If you book your stay during the blueberry harvest season, we hope you will also enjoy the upick experience! We look forward to having you!

The best camping near Channahon State Park guide

Overview

About

Few places in Illinois offer this many ways to enjoy the outdoors. The state park is the official trailhead for the Illinois Michigan Canal State Trail. We're talking 61 miles of biking and hiking paradise. The park's name itself comes from a Native American word meaning "the meeting of the water."

It's pretty accurate since this is where the DuPage, Des Plaines, and Kankakee rivers meet. As a result, fishing, canoeing, and kayaking are a few top activities. History buffs can spend hours gawking at the old river locks and lock tender's house—there's an interpreter on site four days a week to answer all your history questions.

Pack-in, pack-out rustic camping is your only option within Channahon's park boundaries. The sites have fire rings and picnic tables, and pit toilets are located nearby. (Remember to grab a permit from the visitor center before pitching your tent.) For a day trip, kick back at the picnic and grilling area complete with horseshoe pits and a playground.
