RV Parks and Campgrounds near Chicago, Illinois
Chicago, Illinois is one of the largest cities in America. As such, the town is bustling with tourists nearly every season of the year. There is an impressive skyline, a vibrant downtown, an active nightlife, endless shopping and dining opportunities, and, of course, beaches on the shores of Lake Michigan. However, if you're looking for a bit more seclusion, an RV park with a campground near the city is just what you need.

Paul and Mary's Raceway Camping

Located just outside Chicago's city limits, Paul and Mary's Raceway Camping is a site designed for all travelers, but specifically catering to NASCAR fans in the Midwest. This campground serves travelers and RVers who are interested in hitting the big NASCAR races during the racing season. Rates vary by the season, but can be reduced if you travel in a large group. If NASCAR isn't your thing, you can still enjoy the Waterfall Glen Forest Reserve Loop, which is a hiking trail just a few short minutes by car from the campground. Both RVers and tenters welcome.

The facility includes: tent pads and tent sites, RV sites for campers, pull-through RV sites with full electric, water, and sewer hook-ups, and cabins for those who want four walls. The campground and RV park accepts AAA cards for a discount. To get even further into nature, there is an annual fishing derby that incorporates angling and sport boating.
