Are you dreaming about a relaxing, fun vacation in the beautiful Midwest, surrounded by fields and oak trees, where you can just sit back and see where the day takes you? Sounds like you want to RV camp at Mendota Hills Campground in Amboy. The bad news is that you might never want to leave, and the good news is that all you need to do is start your search for an RV in Lee County, and you’ll be swimming and fishing in the lakes and hiking around the site in no time.
Camping at Mendota Hills Campground means that you’ll have all the comfort you need, with pull-through sites with full hookups and a camp store as well as WiFi, should you want to watch a movie or chat with your loved one back home. Not that you’ll have much time for that, not with daily activities and themed weekends. Go on wagon rides, have a campfire (you can get firewood in the store), and learn about the history of the RV park location; it started out as a sandpit for mining and has been everything from a snowmobile venue to an amusement park before turning into this amazing RV campground.
Getting a motorhome rental near Mendota Hills Campground also means that you’ll be able to explore the small city of Amboy as well as beautiful Mendota, and don’t forget about the cute village of Sublette and the larger city of Dixon. Drive past fields that seem to last forever, visit stunning areas for some outdoor recreation (yes, there are golf courses nearby), or stroll through the picturesque towns and villages. Longing for the big city? No problem, just hop into your RV rental and head to Chicago.
Adjacent to Mendota Hills Campground is the lovely Gremel Wildlife Sanctuary, and when you have some time, you can walk around this gorgeous area and really become one with nature. These marshes and wetlands are joined by oak savannah, sand forests, and sand prairies which are the home of many members of both fauna and flora. Walk past blueberries and huckleberries and stop to smell the orchids, before moving your gaze up towards the sky to see if you can spot some birds.
Starved Rock State Park is also located close to your Amboy camper rental, and this place is truly magical - especially considering you’re still in Illinois, even though it doesn’t seem like it at all. Gone are the corn and soybean fields, and in their place, you’ll find towering canyons complete with waterfalls, as well as deep forests with the most amazing colors - come in the fall and see the vibrant display. See wildflowers, wildlife, and take a look at the exhibits in the visitor center before investigating the historical sites in the park.
If the main reason you decided to rent an RV in Amboy was to see oceans of grassy waves that meet the horizon, then off to Midewin National Tallgrass Prairie you go. This former farmland is gradually being restored and turned into the amazing grassland it once was, complete with all the plants and vegetation you’ll usually find on a prairie. Hike through the floating grass, look at the birds, and have a picnic - you might even spot a herd of bison that has been reintroduced to the area.
The places around your campsite at Mendota Hills Campground might be small, but that doesn’t mean that there aren't a whole lot of fun things to do. In Amboy and Sublette, you can roam around antique stores looking for that perfect find, and at Amboy Depot Museum, you can learn about the history of the Illinois Central Railroad before heading to the nearby pumpkin patch to pick your very own pumpkin and check out the vendors, rides, and games. If you’re planning on renting an RV near Mendota Hills Campground in the fall, that is.
If you go to Dixon, a city not far from Amboy and your camper rental, you can have a juicy steak or some yummy tacos after visiting Ronald Reagan’s Boyhood Home where you can see the house where the former president grew up - and yes, his famous Model T is there too. While you’re in Dixon, you really should go to the John Deere Historic Site as well and relive history by feeling the heat from the forge and watching the melting iron in the blacksmith shop. After all that fun, it’s time to settle down in your travel trailer rental at Mendota Hills Campground - have a wonderful trip.
