The Great Outdoors

When you get an RV rental in Bourbonnais and camp at Kankakee River Campground, you’ll be in the perfect position to experience and explore the lovely Kankakee River State Park in all its splendor. There really is something for everyone here, and it doesn’t matter what time of year you visit. There are hiking, biking, and fishing, and the river is ideal for both boating and paddling - there are even some beaches in the area. In the winter, there’s skiing - and lots of it. Don’t forget to keep your eyes open for the Native American monument remnants.When the Kankakee River has been thoroughly scrutinized, pack some snacks and hiking boots and head to Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie, a stunning area of formerly farmed land that’s slowly being restored to the unique grassland it once was. You can even see a bison or two when hiking on one of the trails winding through the vegetation while marveling at how well nature can recover from centuries of agriculture. Keep an eye open for birds, too - if you’re not too occupied studying the bunker-glyphs that is.If you’re close to Chicago, then you’re also not far from Lake Michigan with its astounding views and fun attractions. Indiana Dunes National Park wouldn’t look out of place by any ocean, not with the rolling sand dunes and remarkable marshes along with whatever beach activities you prefer. You can also walk around the truly unique landscape full of plants and animals in a combination that you don’t find very often.

Questions about RVs?

Q.

What type of RV should I choose?

A.

Start by determining how many people are planning to travel with you. Going on a solo-journey? Choose a camper van or a teardrop trailer. Bringing the whole family along for the ride? Consider a spacious Class A or five-wheel.

You’ll also want to consider amenities. For example, if you’re planning to cook on the road, you’ll want a kitchenette. If your campground doesn’t have public restrooms, you’ll want to search RVs with bathrooms. Check out full descriptions of our models to help you decide here.


Q.

Do the RVs have bathrooms?

A.

Yes. Class A’s, Class B’s, and Class C’s and five-Wheels typically have bathrooms. Depending on where you plan on camping, you’ll want to double-check the availability of restrooms if selecting a rig without a bathroom. Nervous about renting an RV with a bathroom? Owners can help show you how to clean the tank or will offer to do it for you for a fee.


Q.

How does check-in work?

A.

Once an Owner approves your RV reservation, you can coordinate a time to pick up your rig or have it delivered to your doorstep or campsite. At that point, the owner will do a key exchange with you and walk you through the RV and answer any questions you might have.
