“A gem very close to Chicago”

Reviewed Aug 14, 2017

Overall Rating

Needed to find something close to family in Oak Park Il and this fit the bill perfectly. Campground run by Cook County and you can to book on line but we had to eventually do it by phone. Campground has been open for only 3 years and doesn't have many mature trees. Small lake with kayaks to rent but no swimming. lake is only 10 ft deep. Plenty of small pan fish in like and lots of hiking trails around. Grocery store and more just a few miles away. Sites are mostly level and back in was easy. Plan to use this place again when we visit family. Only draw back was the water is from well and has high iron content. Construction has started on a water filtration system to mitigate that.

“Decent Camping Close to Chicago”

Reviewed Jun 19, 2017

Overall Rating

In 2015 Cook County (Chicago) invested $22 million into bringing camping back to 5 locations in the county's Forest Preserves. They built brand new campgrounds that are now the closest campgrounds to the city. The new facilities are of very high quality and were kept clean during my visit there.

For residents of Chicago, it's worth the visit due to proximity and being able to be back in the city in 30 minutes. For non-locals, this same proximity makes it a solid basecamp to head into the city via I-55, the Orange Line (Chicago Transit Authority "L") at Midway Airport or one of the nearby Metra (commuter rail) stations.

The camping does not at all feel urban, but also does not at all feel rustic. It's a nature setting, but the new facilities and effort to make camping accessible to city residents lead to a very polished feel.

There is very little shade at Bullfrog Lake due to the trees being so new. The lake itself is small, and the campground is surrounded by many forest preserve trails. Airplanes can be seen often overhead as they head to Midway.
