Sorry it`s for Memorial Day 2012. with the exception of the Mississippi river area the other recomendations are only about 45 minutes from our house. we want something farther away with things to see and do.
Sorry, misunderstood the intentions of your post. Thought you were looking for a campground with easy access to Chicago. You're looking for one 4 hours or less from Chicago ... to get away! OK, got it.
May I recommend ANY State Park in Indiana! Don't forget to check-out the Indiana State Recreation area's also. They are also run by the DNR and, in my opinion, have better campsites than the state parks.

It's about 4 1/2 hrs away but we like East Harbor State Park by Port Clinton Ohio. We've been there twice and enjoyed it both times! There is many things to do and see in the area and it is just west of Cedar Point amusement park in Sandusky.
