Early inhabitants of Kankakee State Park—the Illini, Miami, Kickapoo, & Mascouten tribes, and later, the Potawatomi, Ottawa and Chippewa people—began a deeply rich tradition of living from the land. Engage in that living story by returning to Chippewa Campground where a few modern-ish amenities (vault toilets, hand-pumped water) meet flowing creeks, running animals, and storied soil. Your RV will never be the same.

Chippewa Campground is where my friends and I would all spend our summer nights camping in high school. While the campgrounds themselves aren't that impressive, Kankakee State Park is beautiful. There's a secret little spot where you can "cliff jump" from a twenty foot ledge, or if you're in a more chill mood, you can float down the creek on inner tubes. The park is also a popular place for local slackliners to set up. The hiking isn't extensive, so I'd recommend this weekend spot for people who also have other interests, like kayaking or fishing.
