Spend the night under the stars at the DuPage Forest Preserve District’s family campground at Blackwell Forest Preserve in Warrenville (Illinois), as they open for the season on May 6.
According to a report, the campground will be open on weekends, from May 6 to September 25. Campers can buy permits online 24 hours a day until a year in advance, but they must reserve at least three business days in advance.
Campsites are powered by electricity and accommodate visitors with tents, trailers, and motor homes. Each has a gravel parking pad, fire ring, and picnic table and can accommodate up to eight people, two tents, and one vehicle.
The campground is equipped with restrooms, showers, and hand water pumps. There is also a water-fill station and a dump station for RVs. Firewood is $7 per bundle; outside firewood is not permitted.
This year, campers can now dispose of their empty 16-ounce propane tanks at the campground due to a collaborative program with DuPage County.
