    Welcome to Camp Sullivan, nestled near Oak Forest, IL. This spot is a solid choice if you're looking to escape the hustle and bustle of city life without straying too far from Chicago. 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 shade on the tent side, making it a comfortable spot to pitch your tent even on warmer days. The campground is big rig friendly, but be aware that some RV spots can be a bit tight. If you're in an RV, you’ll find electric hookups, but you'll need to fill your water tanks at the bathrooms since there’s no water hookup at the sites themselves.

    Camp Sullivan is also pet-friendly, so feel free to bring your furry friends along. There are plenty of trails for hiking and road biking that you can access directly from the camp, offering a great way to explore the natural surroundings. The staff here are generally friendly and helpful, and they even provide free firewood, which is a nice touch.

    For those who enjoy a bit of convenience, there’s a market on-site, and you can also find picnic tables and fire pits at most sites. The bathrooms and showers are generally clean, though some visitors have noted that maintenance can be hit or miss.

    Overall, Camp Sullivan is a decent spot with a good location, especially if you’re looking to visit Chicago but still want to enjoy some greenery and solitude. Just be prepared for a few quirks, and you’ll have a great time.
