Enjoy natural surroundings in your tent or ours on private property which is located approximately 30 miles northwest of Chicago and is situated within 10 minutes from town and Metra. Nice alternative to a public camp area.

The space

Our quaint private property is in a quiet residential area and located approximately 30 miles northwest of Chicago and is situated within 10 minutes from town and Metra (easily walkable too and takes about 45 minutes or so). We are also within 10 minutes or less from the area's plentiful forest preserves which offer hiking, biking, and other activities year round. Ideal alternative to a public campsite.

The eight acre property is situated near other homes. The camping area is nestled amid a large wooded area near a freight train line. It offers plenty of privacy and beautiful open views. The camp space is simple, basic and secluded along a stocked, two acre pond available for fishing and paddling.

Campers have access to spigot well water, electricity, and other amenities. Leashed pets are welcome.

The listing was as described, except the air mattress wasn't available. Outside of that it was a fine stay for the night.
