    Machesney Park, Illinois

    Located 10 miles northeast of Rockford, Rock Cut State Park is a 3,100-acre recreation area that encompasses two natural grasslands, a natural creek area, a nature preserve and 162-acre Pierce Lake. The area was designated a state park in 1957 as a way of preserving a local polititian’s favorite fishing hole. Prior to this, the park and wider area has a long history of Native American residence, including the Mascouten, the Winnegabo, and the Chippewa. With abundant water and preserved natural areas, the park now supports a thriving habitat for local birds, fish and wildlife. And with year-round camping and outdoor activities, you can experience the many seasonal sides the park has to offer.

    The campground at Rock Cut provides 270 sites that can accommodate tent campers, as well as RV and trailer campers up to 40 feet. Back-in sites are mostly grassy and equipped with picnic tables, cooking grills and electrical hookups. The campground provides water faucets, restrooms, showers, and a dump station; the water and dump station are not available November through April. One of the park’s multiuse trails runs right through the campground, and provides access to the larger trail network. Most of the campground’s facilities are ADA accessible. Dogs are permitted in the park, but must remain leashed; alcohol is not permitted.

    For recreating in temperate seasons, more than 40 miles of hiking, cycling and equestrian trails allow you to explore the park’s woodlands and prairies. These are ideal ways to observe some of the local birds, animals, and wildflowers. For fun on the water, paddle around in a canoe or kayak, take a dip at Olsen Beach, or go fishing for some of the lake’s largemouth bass, bluegill, sunfish, pike and walleye. Several picnic areas throughout the park are ideal for group or family gatherings. In the snowy season, many of the park’s trails are open to cross-country skiing and snowshoeing, with gear rentals available. For more family fun in the area, check out the nearby Volcano Falls Adventure Park.

    For those who want to include an overnight stay in their visit to Rock Cut, the campgrounds provide electricity at the site, water hydrants at the beginning of each camping loop, sanitary dump stations, showers, toilets, a boat launch and playground equipment. There are 210 Class A Premium sites and 60 Class B/S Premium sites. There is also a primitive cabin (it has electricity, but does not have water or plumbing facilities).

    From November - April, only electricity is available; there is no access to water or dump station.

    Equestrian camping is restricted to a site on Hart Road, is only available on a first-come, first-served basis and the Ranger will collect the fee at your site in the evening.

    Rock Cut is an alcohol-free park and campground, and this rule is strictly enforced.

    Welcome to Honeysuckle Hollow at Chain O' Lakes State Park! This spot is a gem for families and anyone looking to escape into nature for a bit. The campground offers a mix of tent, RV, cabin, and even glamping accommodations, so there's something for everyone.

    One of the standout features here is the abundance of wildlife. Kids will love spotting birds and other critters around the large, spacious sites. The no-alcohol policy makes it a peaceful place for families to unwind. Plus, the sites are mostly flat, making it easy to set up camp without worrying about awkward slopes.

    You'll find electric hookups at many sites, and there's a sanitary dump station near the entrance. The bathhouses are a short walk away, and while they might not be pristine, they get the job done. For emergencies, there are pit toilets scattered around.

    If you're into kayaking or fishing, you're in luck. The campground is close to launch sites and a fishing dock. There's also a little store by the boat dock where you can grab snacks, ice cream, or even some live bait.

    A heads-up: ticks and raccoons are part of the package here. Make sure to do regular tick checks, especially if you have little ones crawling around. And raccoons? They’ll be your uninvited dinner guests if you’re not careful. Pack up your food and clean up early to avoid any nighttime scavengers.

    Overall, Honeysuckle Hollow is a solid choice for a laid-back camping experience near Spring Grove, IL. Whether you're here for a weekend or a week, you'll find plenty to keep you busy and relaxed.

    Kirkland, Illinois

    This 48-acre former Boy Scout camp still includes the dining hall lodge, three enclosed shelters with wood stoves, hiking /cross country trails and a dozen tent campsites. It is one of the most botanically rich and topographically varied forested preserves in our district. Showy Orchis, Glade Mallow, Cancer Root, ferns, and a nice array of other uncommon plants occur in the diverse upland and floodplain forests. A 100 foot bluff, too steep to walk, drops to the South Branch Kishwaukee River – a run where the river flows across limestone bedrock and the drops over THE GREAT KISHWAUKEE FALLS: an eroded fracture straight across the river’s bed that allows the water to crash straight over the precipice before falling six inches to the bedrock below! (OK, maybe not spectacular, this is the Midwest, after all.) The state endangered Black Sandshell mussel has been found in this portion of the river and Bald Eagles nest less than a mile west, down the river.
