Chain O'Lakes State Park
Located in the heart of Illinois' largest concentration of natural lakes, Chain O'Lakes State Park is a water-oriented recreation area with outstanding opportunities for boaters, anglers and skiers.
This place is the best. I practically grew up here. There is so much fun to be had and this is a superb place to make memories that last a lifetime.
I booked cabin #1 a year in advance. A DAY before we were to come they called and said the cabin was closed for repairs. People were coming in from Florida. Of course, all the other cabins were full since it was high season. We missed one day of the week, but they put us in another cabin for 3 days. Then we had to pack up and move everything to another cabin for the remaining 3 days. Not fun. But the park is great. People were apologetic and nice. Could have used some help carting everything to the new cabin though.
Great place to be during the summer. Lot's of walking and bike riding area to get lost for a while. Plus tons more... Definitely recommend stopping here.
This is a great campground. It is very naturally beautiful with lots of opportunities to experience the outdoors with canoes, hiking trails and whatnot. It is pretty reasonably priced as well. It will have all the amenities you would expect from a campground such as a general store. Great camping experience!
This park is billed as a boater dream. This might be the case but when my wife and I wanted to have some fun hiking and it proved to be full of amazing trails. The path ways were well maintained and many gave you great views of those lakes.
