i'm planning a camping trip at the chain in a few weeks. can anyone suggest a good camp site by the lakes or the river where i can put in my canoe and fish various spots. i've read alot about ken and don's place and plan to visit them when i'm there.
or any other lake/river camping/fishing suggestions not too far from chicago would be awesome. thanks.

The Chain State Park off of Wilmot Rd in Spring Grove is a great place to camp and it's right on the Fox River. You can canoe out to Grass Lake and other lakes on the chain but the boat traffic can be fierce. The best bet is to stay on the Fox River which is no wake all the way to the Wisconsin state line. Lots of nice scenery and the fishing is pretty good too. :wink:

Try Shabbona; Nice campground and no need to worry about boat wakes. The fishing isn't half bad either.
