Marengo Ridge Forest Preserve Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"When I plan an Illinois cam pin g getaway, my mind usually gravitates south—or east, west, or northwest—in fact, to any corner of the state but the northeast, aka Chicago. I’m not enamored of expressways and malls, and “big city” and “camping” just don’t go together for me.

However, not many miles from the busy northwest suburbs, you’ll find Marengo Ridge, a superb McHenry County forest preserve that doesn’t look a bit like Chicago and offers wonderfully isolated tent camping."
