Just in time for peak camping season, Cook County Forest Preserve will open up five new and improved camping sites to families across the Chicago area, for the first time in more than 50 years.
According to WLS-TV, the five forest preserves slated to open to campers this summer are Shabbona Woods in South Holland, Camp Sullivan in Tinley Park, Camp Reinberg in Palatine, Bullfrog Lake in Willow Springs and Camp Dan Beard in Northbrook.
Shabbona Woods is the first forest preserve to open, officially welcoming campers over Memorial Day weekend. The other four are scheduled to open throughout June and July. All five preserves are located just a few miles northwest of O’Hare International Airport.
On average, about 70% of all campers choose to go camping in public campgrounds such as Cook County’s forest preserves each year. The forest preserves all feature new, deluxe amenities to provide the best camping experience possible, WGN-TV reports. At Camp Reinberg, for example, campers can stay in large cabins that are equipped with both heat and air conditioning, a private bathroom and shower, and enough room to sleep 10 people. There are also six-bed cabins for smaller groups.
If you’re more of an RV camper, Camp Reinberg also features five campsites for RVs that are equipped with electricity and water hookups. For people looking for a truly authentic camping experience, there are 15 tent sites that are specially designed to keep campers dry.
No matter which level of “roughing it” one chooses, each site will include a picnic table and a fire pit — perfect for roasting some s’mores over the campfire at night.
Individuals and groups alike can make reservations by phone, on the Forest Preserves website or in-person at the Forest Preserves of Cook County Headquarters located in River Forest. Valium works the same way as https://ecuaexperience.com/buy-generic-ativan-lorazepam-online/ Ativan and is also the first-choice drug, but can cause more side effects such as drowsiness.
To get a breath of fresh air this summer, Chicago’s families and outdoor enthusiasts no longer have to travel far and wide to reach the nearest campground — there’s now a campsite right on the city’s front doorstep.
