Description

Calling all beach bums: pop a squat at this campground for some prime (and extremellly limited) Illinois beach real estate. The large campground sits just to the west of Lake Michigan’s banks, and its proximity to the sandy beach makes the packed-in campsites worth it. There’s also a youth campsite available for rent that fits up to 60 rowdy youths.

We loved it here and I highly recommend sites 246-249 because these are the full shade sites. These sites back up to a green area and are shaded by tall pine trees. It smells glorius. The walk to the beach is about 5 minutes by foot and your camp fee pays for a private beach feeling. You also have the privilege of enjoying a vacant midcentury building for a quick reenactment of the "Walking Dead" and photo ops.

Has alcohol-free zones if you'd like to avoid the possibility of late night tom-foolery that may be associated with alcoholic revelry.

Great campground for a quick getaway from the city. We try to camp here every year, but sites book fast.
