Hey guys, I think I'm going to try and take the family on a camping/fishing trip this spring. Any suggestions? I'm looking for something no more than 2-3 hours from northwest suburbs, a place for the tent, a lake with fish, and possibly a row boat rental. I have no clue. Most of my fishing is done in canada. Any help would be great.

Shelbyville might be a little outside your 2/3 hr range, but it has everything you're looking for.

Le-Aqua-Na west of Rockford.
Took the girls there when they were younger, it was nice.

If you would like to do the opener
in May in Wisconsin, send me a PM and I will give you the details of my "first Family trip of the Season."

Family license is 75.00 for wife and minor children under 16 for the year.

All the amenities in the Area and camping as well as some tough but rewarding fishing 3 hours from Chicago. light tackle and gin clear water.

I would post the Lake but it is underfished and I like the relative small crowds for the first weekend.
