Located on the Great Lake Michigan, Chicago is central to all the most stunning natural features in the American Midwest. Rent a Campervan from Chicago to explore quaint lake shores, majestic twisting rivers, and expansive evergreen forests. Dive into the Great Lakes region to experience the wonders of the American Heartlands.

National Parks in the Chicago Area

From the evergreen Northwoods to the lapis-colored waters of the Great Lakes, the northern Midwest has no lack of beauty to explore. Renting a campervan or motorhome from Chicago means unlimited access to some of the most picturesque American national parks.

Drive your campervan or motorhome rental east to Indiana Dunes National Park. The park hugs a 15-mile section of shoreline just outside Chicago where you can hike through rugged dunes, enchanting wetlands, and towering forests.

Continue your eastbound campervan exploration to one of America's most visited national parks, Cuyahoga Valley National Park. The park offers picturesque waterfalls, miles of forested hiking, hidden bridges, and a bustling wildlife population.

Alternatively, head west of Chicago in your campervan or motorhome rental to get in touch with American History at Effigy Mounds National Monument. 200 animal-shaped mounds (effigies) lie in striking order on one of the most scenic sections of the upper Mississippi River. Considered sacred by the natives that built them, this national monument offers contemplative landscapes and a window into the sacred Native American past.

Chicago Lakes and Rivers

As one of the wettest regions in America, the Chicago area has no shortage of waterscapes to explore. Hike along babbling brooks, paddle through enchanting wetlands, or dive into any of the massive Great Lakes for a refreshing experience amid your road trip.

Your campervan adventure would not be complete without diving into the refreshing Lake Michigan. Experience the quaint charm of Oval Beach or hang out with the locals at Montrose Beach. If you're looking to escape the city crowds, drive your campervan or motorhome rental to Warren Dunes State Park just east of Chicago.

South of Chicago, Lake Sara, and Rend Lake offers tranquil acres of wetlands, meadows, and forests to explore and hang out on. Float along the banks of Silver Spring a natural spring-fed pool named for the way it shimmers or paddle leisurely down the Fox River.

Campgrounds Around Chicago

With so many exciting landscapes to explore, it's essential that you have a safe place to rest and recharge while on your road trip. When it comes to overnight accommodations, it's always a good idea to call ahead and ensure that your selected campsites are equipped to lodge your campervan or motorhome rental.
