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.
