Camping with KOA in Illinois means you're close to everything this exciting state has to offer. You can stay within an easy drive of Chicago, allowing you to plan a day of site-seeing, eating Chicago dogs and catching a game at Wrigley Field.
However, if camping for you means enjoying the natural wonders nearby, you can follow the Mississippi's Great River Road, or head farther south to the sinewy river valleys and sculpted sandstone before you reach Shawnee National Forest.
