Make plans to “Camp Local”​ this year, with the Forest Preserve District. You don’t have to drive far or spend a fortune to experience camping — it’s available right here in Kane County. Whether you’re interested in vehicle camping, tent camping or even camping with your horses, District campgrounds have sites available to meet your needs. Recreational camping is open through Oct. 31, at Paul Wolff Campground and Big Rock Campground.​ Camp sites range from $10 to $25 per day. For more information, call our campground hotline at 630-444-1200.
