Gov. dodge in WI is about 3 -3.5 hours away, and is beautiful.
cool stuff nearby to entertain the family as well (House on the rock)

Go three hours east of chicago, you can enjoy some of the best rustic /tent camping around at Deep Lake campground, part of Yankee Springs State Park in MI. fantastic bike /hiking trails, nice lake, big wooded campsites.

I've camped at Kank and Rockford, and they were not nearly as nice, and not really set up for family fishing and big hikes.

Try Willow Slough in Indiana. 1200 acres of water to fish in. Boat rentals with or without electric motor. About now you will be all by yourself as most of the campers will not be out when the nights are below 65. Plenty of fish. I have seen northern over 36 and they have been reported at 44 inches. Plenty of bass and tons of pan fish. If you want to sight in your shotgun or rifle they have ranges from 25 to 100 yards that are free. CAUTION NO HANDGUNS for most Illinois residents. It is at route 41, mile post 230. One hour south of Cabelas in Hammond.
