6 Budget-Friendly Campsites to Visit in Northern Illinois
Shake up your normal camping routine by visiting one of these budget-friendly campsites this summer.
I love camping, as long as there are no bugs, I don't have to sleep on the ground and it's not raining.
I know, I'm a glam-per. I enjoy the finer things in camping such as a blow up mattress, bug spray, running water and public bathrooms.
But, I've had my fair share of roughing it in the great outdoors.
