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.

A shallow part of rock creek, near the campground.
