Going to Chicago

I everyone,
I am driving to Chicago today and was wondering if you can recommend any campsites near O'Hare?
Thanks

I don't know of any, and as a pilot who's flown in & out of there a few times, I can tell you I haven't seen a campground within the best part of a 100 miles from O'Hare.

I'm not even sure there's much in the way of a place to boon-dock anywhere close either. Unless you try sitting in the Cell Phone lot and see how long it takes for someone to tell you to leave.

Illinois State Beach Park north of Chicago or Indiana State Dunes south of the city...but Chicago is not RV friendly!
I understand there is dry camping in the large truck lot south of McCormick Place, you might google that.

Chicago/Northwest KOA is about 60 miles from O'Hare along I-90 in Marengo, Il. Pretty much the closest full service campground to Chicago.

Campground near chicago

If you are looking for a quiet place, Paul wolfe forest preserve which is in Kane county is a hidden Gem. I90 and Randall Rd. They have water and 50amp electric and 2 dump station. Some well shaded sites and some wide open. $25.00 per night with a 2 week max stay. Being local here it is our home away from home when we cant be away from home.

I understand there is a nearby train into the city. Can you confirm that and is there something we need to know about the best train to get to the Museums?

You can boondock at the McCormick Place marshalling yard for $31 a nite. Its right on Lake Michigan and they have all night security. A $15 or less taxi ride will get you downtown or to the train system. This works great for a Cubs or Sox game. Its also very easy to get in and out by Chicago standards.
