Campgrounds Provide Relaxing and Convenient Get-away!


You don’t have to travel far from home to enjoy camping in picturesque and unspoiled areas.  The Winnebago County Forest Preserve District has four campgrounds which provide running water, electrical hookups, and restrooms. The electrical service at Pecatonica River camp ground has been temporarily shut down for repair assessment. Playgrounds, fishing, ball fields and hiking trails are found nearby.  If you like to really get back to nature, primitive camping is available at Sugar River Forest Preserve.  Sugar River also offers shower facilities. Campground hosts are on site to facilitate your visit during the summer season. A self-registration process is now in place for when hosts are not present. Fees $10- $12 per night. For more information visit or call (815) 877-6100 for a free camping brochure and map.
