Summer Camping at Bullfrog Lake

Why choose Bullfrog for Camping?
Convenient location (about 30 minutes from Chicago), lakeside activities and biking and hiking trails around the area. Bonus – Booze is allowed. For first time campers, this is a perfect spot to get the feel for camping without a lot of hardships.

How to Plan your visit?

•  Just make a reservation at FPCC site here, pack your bags and go.

• Run through this indispensable emergency checklist.

•  Get your bikes and enjoy the several miles of mountainous biking. Details here.

•  There are fishing and kayaking opportunities too.

Note: I wouldn’t really recommend it for multiple days considering the overall facilities like bathrooms aren’t all that great.
