Default CAMPING!!!

I'm looking for a place to go camping for memorial day weekend. I would like for it to be within 2 hrs of chicago. I want a place that has good fishing. boats rentals? But it has to be wife friendly. Nice with clean bathrooms, maybe a pool. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

mike51280: Shabona has a good camp area with all the above features. It does not have a pool however, and no swimming is allowed in the lake. The only catch is for memorial day. it could be real crowded. If you would decide to go their on Memorial day, make sure you make reservations in advance, otherwise you will never get in. It is about an hour and half driving. They have a web site.

You might want to look into Pokagon State Park in Angola IN. Its a little bit farther, (about 2.5 hours or so from the city) but there are excellent resorts, plenty of campground, amenities, good fishing, boat rentals, etc.
