Biked from Chicago down the I&M trail. Campground is directly off the main trail; you take a 25ft side trail into an open field and you are in the middle of the campground. On the other side of the park is a lake/pond and a basic suburban park. Went mid-summer and our bike group were the only people in the campground; there were a lot of mosquitoes. Had a great time grilling, drinking, relaxing.
