Discover Rockford, IL


In 1834, a handful of brave New Yorkers made the decision to settle on the west banks of the Rock River. This was officially the birth of Midway, or as we know it today, Rockford, IL. For the next twenty years, Rockford remained a relative sleepy country town, with agriculture being the predominant industry in the area. This was all set to change when a railway was built in 1850, connecting Rockford to Chicago. Since then, the town has boomed, establishing itself as a significant center for a number of industries, ranging from furniture design to aerospace engineering.

As a result of this varied history, Rockford has become a city that is steeped in a rich culture. This is celebrated in the various museums, theaters and in many outdoor spaces scattered throughout town. Considering this, you will be glad to know that Rockford is incredibly accessible from all angles. Located at the confluence of several major highways, there are direct routes from major cities such as Indianapolis, St Louis, and Chicago.

When you book a motorhome in Rockford, you will never be without something to do! Whether you are interested in industrial heritage, modern art, contemporary cuisine or just a beautiful park to relax in, you will find something for you!

The Great Outdoors

When you rent an RV in Rockford, you will be able to explore the abundance of green spaces located in and around town. Winnebago County has one of the best Forest Preserve systems in Illinois, leaving over 10,000 acres of untouched beauty, in the form of lakes, rivers, forests, and gardens to be explored!

Rockford is home to some of the best collections of gardens in the country, with the Anderson Japanese Gardens being voted one of the best Japanese inspired gardens in North America. A visit to these gardens will leave you with a feeling of peacefulness and tranquility. The garden’s 12 acres comprise of ponds filled with vibrant koi, flowing waterfalls and well-groomed gravel paths. Tours provide visitors with the history and meaning behind these gardens and come highly recommended.

For a more active outdoors experience, head to Rock Cut State Park. This spacious park has everything you could need for a fun day of activities. With two lakes ideal for swimming or fishing as well as several horse riding and biking trails, you will be spoilt for choice!

If you decide to secure yourself a Rockford camper rental during the winter months, be sure to visit the snow park at the Alpine Hills. This five-acre park offers visitors either tubing, snowboarding or skiing for adventurers of any ability level. Located just ten minutes from the center of town, this is a magical experience for the whole family!

RV Parks

Although you will have to head slightly further out of town for some for the more beautiful campgrounds, there are plenty of options to park up your Rockford travel trailer for the night!

The camping facilities within Rock Cut State Park are remarkably modern, accommodating and well maintained. With nearly 200 sites dotted around the park and the choice of four different locations, you will need to book in advance to guarantee your spot here! Each site has electric hookups for your travel trailer rental from Rockford, as well as full washroom facilities, a camp store with basic groceries and fire pits.

For a less scenic option, try Blackhawk Valley Campground, a twenty-minute drive out of town. Unlike, Rock Cut State Park, this campground does offer full hookups for your luxury motorhome rental from Rockford, so will suit the more convenience conscious traveler.

Occasionally while out on vacation you will need a quick overnight stay. Walmarts and larger grocery stores may allow camping. There are several in the Rockford area. Just check with management before you bunk down.

Exploring the City

As you would expect, such a large town provides a number of great attractions to see within the city center! Here you will find museums that will not only keep the adults entertained but the kids too.

Make sure you stop off at one of the many museums found in the center of town. The Burpee Museum of Natural History and Rockford Art Museum have both taken a more traditional approach to exhibitions, housing them inside some impressive buildings. If you are looking for something a little more interactive, to immerse yourself in, head to the Midway Village Museum. This open-aired museum resembles a Victorian village, with costumed volunteers at hand to educate visitors on what life was like at this time. Make sure you explore all of the buildings to uncover some of the workshops and shows on offer!

Temperatures easily reach around 85 degrees during the summer, and if your campground doesn’t have a swimming pool, you will definitely need somewhere to cool down. Luckily for you, Magic Waters Waterpark provides the perfect opportunity for this. This family-friendly, outdoor Water Park, has been rated as the fourth best in the country and guarantees a bit of fun for everyone!
