I've been camping for over 30 years. When ever people come in, whether male or female and I see that they are having trouble, I go over to assist. Do not be afraid to go to a neighbor camper to ask for help. They are all on vacation and would love to help. I have numerous times backed neighbor campers into their spots, and have made great friendships.

That is what camping is all about!

Depends on what you consider a "reasonable drive". Here are links to some of the forest preserve camping areas:
Camping (Dupage County)
Camping Near Chicago Area - Forest Preserves of Cook County Camping (Cook County)
http://kaneforest.com/publications/b...es/camping.pdf (Kane County - campground layout for the one previously mentioned)

These would probably be anywhere from 20-45 minutes away depending on time of day and traffic. The Cook County would be the furthest.

Aside from trying to back into a tricky site, I almost prefer to setup solo. When I'm on my own I can run through my mental checklist and everything gets done, and done in the order I've found best. When too many other helpers get involved, things sometimes get missed or have to get re-done. Or I just plain mess up because someone is talking to me and I'm not paying full attention to the task at hand.

Shabonna State Park - Warning! Some sites are tight fit. Some sites have an awesome view of the lake. My wife and I love it.
