Burnidge Forest Preserve/Paul Wolff Campground Elgin, IL

Just a quick post about where we're staying while visiting our daughter, SIL and grandson, Aiden in the Chicago area. As I mentioned in the last post Glenda found this great campground in Elgin, IL. It's part of the Burnidge Forest Preserve in Kane County. The campground has some shaded sites and some open sites. The open sites are in the newer section and have longer sites with 3 pull throughs for big rigs. There are some tent camping areas too. There are 9 miles of hiking trails and 2.25 miles of multi use trails for hiking, biking and equestrian use. The campground has 89 sites with 50 amp service and water. Some water hook ups must be shared. The sites are well spaced and has more of a campground feel than an RV park.

 



We're so happy to find a place like this so near our daughter's house and the things we want to do while here. The site fees are $15 for county residents and $25 for non residents. Right in our budget. Today we took our bikes to the Fox River Trail and rode for about 2 hours. I'll post later on that.

I checked in on the RVillage social media website when we got here and had a notification yesterday that another member had also checked in so I sent them a message and we plan to meet after the weekend. They're in the area visiting family too. This is exactly why I decided to live the full time RV lifestyle. Meeting new friends and finding hidden gems like this campground.
