    Default Info on national parks near Chicago?

    I'm going to Chicago in a few weeks with my boyfriend but we would like to spend a few nights in a national park nearby. Perhaps somewhere on Lake Michigan, but no further than about 3 hours drive away.

    Has anyone else done this or can anyone recommend a location etc? Any tips would be gratefully received! Thanks

    Dunno specifically, but check out the National Parks website:

    National Park Service - Experience Your America

    Illinois

    You can search for parks, and even make campsite reservations online for many campgrounds. Use the "find a park" link. There is information about nearby activities and trails, etc. Yay for internetz.

    I used it to plan an impromptu trip in an unfamiliar state. Worked out well, much better than aimlessly driving around hoping that what is on the map still exists and is open at X:00am.
