Hi there,

we are trying to find a campground near enough to Chicago to drive into town for dinner with friends one night. We have driven through Chicago before, but we cannot just park the Casita if it is really, really hot. Need power for air conditioning if we leave cats in trailer.

Have never been there but my 2000 copy of The RVer's Friend [www.truckstops.com] shows 2 possible stops with hookups nearby. They are: Plainfield IL I-55 Exit 257 [US30] 815-436-3210 & Bolingbrook IL I-55 Exit 267 [IL53] 630-739-7006 . Good luck !

Not far from where we live but right off the expressway.

We have camped there when desperate to go SOMEWHERE.
It not too bad.

Haven't looked at the Casita Directory, but are there any Hosts in that area?
