For decades, camping in the forest preserves has been available only to organized groups such as the Scouts—until now. This summer, the Forest Preserves of Cook County is opening five new and revitalized campgrounds to families, groups and individuals of all ages and interests.
Whether you’re staying in a tent, a cabin, a bunkhouse or an RV, you’ll get an immersive, round-the-clock nature experience, a chance to hear owls, paddle a canoe, stargaze and watch the sun rise over the trees. Or you can try one of our many free programs to learn about local nature or hone your outdoor skills.
Experience your forest preserves as never before—sign-up for camping today!
