  1. Default Midwest weekend roadtrip

    Hi all

    Happened to stumble upon this forum while planning a trip this weekend. My girlfriend and I were looking to do some fall camping in the midwest this weekend. However the weather looks to be a bit too cold for that. Looking to stay within about an 8 hour drive from Chicago and seeing if anyone has any ideas of places to go. We grew up here, so I have done a lot of the usual things (i.e Starved Rock, Galena, St Louis, etc.). What really made me post was I had seen someones suggestion for the The Shack Up Inn. Not saying I am going to find that type of place but maybe a lesser known location. Thanks for any ideas.

    Default Why Not That One?

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Clarksdale is just a shade over 8 hours from Chicago, and is about as far south as you can get in a day, so if the Shack Up Inn appeals to you, why not set it as your goal?

    I really would like to go there but I called and they are all booked this weekend.

    What about Land Between The Lakes?

    Camping should be pretty decent this weekend if you have 3 season gear, and it's about 7 hours from Chicago straight down I-57 and I-24.
