Every year we meet friends from Madison to go camping together at the Indiana Dunes. We are hoping to find something that is closer to the halfway point for both parties. Thanks!!

Rock Cut State Park near Rockford is fun and has HUGE sites. Bigfoot State Park in WI is also nice.

Starved Rock is awesome. My 8 year old son loves going there. We go there about once a year. Wonderful recommendation. The scenery there is great and the staff at the actual lodge is wonderful.
