Organized Group Camping

The Forest Preserves of Cook County provides organized camping opportunities for groups up to 60. Perfect for youth organizations, corporate team building, retreats and other special events, our campgrounds each offer a different mix of accommodations including group tent campsites, clusters of cabins and bunkhouses, along with large fields, dining halls and picnic shelters.

We welcome groups of all kinds, and have programs designed to prepare group leaders for their event. We also have options for gear rental so the lack of equipment won’t keep you from camping in the preserves.

We are ready to work with you to design the perfect camping experience, unique to the needs of your group. With a friendly, professional staff, your time at our campgrounds will provide memories that will last a lifetime.

Non-profit group? Groups with a letter from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) confirming 501(3)(c) status (see sample) are eligible for 50% off camping fees.

View individual campground pages for lodging options and fees.* All organized groups should register by calling 855-YES-CAMP.
