"There is a three-night minimum stay here but if you can swing it, stay longer!"

$15 per night is a great deal inside a national park for camping. Toss in the bonus Road Pass that allowed us to drive 15 miles deeper into the park and the Tek Pass that gave us unlimited access to the bus system; camping here is a steal! The... Read more

"This is a great ‘get your feet wet’ base camp."

For around $30 per night we stayed at Savage near mile 14 inside the park. This is a great ‘get your feet wet’ base camp. Chat up the rangers at the visitor’s center, take in the short hikes near the park entrance and spend some time at the moose... Read more

The 18th street lot is on the north side near Soldier Field and is the least used location for overnight parking. It’s nice because you’re all alone, but for some that may be too scary. We didn’t feel like we were in danger but I will say it was... Read more
