With the big cities in front of you, and the vast open wilderness surrounding you, take your camper rental along the Illinois River Road and immerse yourself in the heart of Illinois’ wilderness. Experience hundreds of preserved sites, fishing hot spots, and galleries along this route which travels from Havana to Peoria along the picturesque Illinois River Valley.

After taking in some of the rural charm, raging river views, and plentiful fishing that Illinois offers, venture north into Peoria for a historical small-town feel, located in an area that has been occupied since well before 5,000 B.C! Peoria has something for everyone, with bustling shopping centers, the Glen Oak Zoo, and the scalable Tower Park, a remodeled water tower that offers a 40-mile view, permitting skies are clear.

If you’ve managed to rack up some miles on any of the numerous walking, biking, or hiking trails along the route to Peoria, enjoy the quiet outdoors in your motorhome rental at one of the highest rated RV parks in Illinois, Jubilee College State Park. This park offers a variety of lots, with clean bathrooms, showers, and full water, sewer, and electric hookups.

Continuing with your journey onward from the heart of Illinois, take a trip to one of the larger city centers and experience a break from the wilderness. In Springfield, a short hike south of Peoria, an atmosphere of busy city life intermingled with a plethora of Lincoln memorabilia and rich history sweeps in.

Inside the city, check out one of the many historical sites relating to Lincoln, such as the Lincoln tomb, or the Lincoln Depot, a brick building which hosted Lincoln himself during what many consider his first steps into the history books. After that, a walk in New Salem Park depicts the small village reconstructed as Honest Abe would have known it.

Springfield is a large city, offering many things to do during your experience with a camper rental in Mid Illinois. Instead of leaving the city, stay in the Illinois State Fair Campgrounds, which is central to all of Springfield. If you’re feeling another escape from the city life, check out the Double J Campground and RV Park, and relax in a well-maintained pool or one of the many shaded lots, all with full hookups and free internet access.

After taking a swing at city life, let the outdoorsman or woman out with a stop at Danville. Truly a nature buff's sanctuary, this small flat land town is surrounded by six parks, and as well as a large museum and the Fithian House, another site of a famous Lincoln speech.

Lying on Danville’s outskirts is the Kickapoo State Park, with a quiet secluded lake teeming with fish, as well as multiple hiking and walking trails. With serenity like this, staying in the Kickapoo State Recreation Area, a secluded park with electric and rentable kayaks, may be a great bet during your RV rental.

If a day trip is more your style, experience up 11 miles of wetlands trails through the Forest Glen Preserve, and explore a biologically diverse 1,800-acre park with wooded wetlands, riverscapes, hills, and recently restored savanna.
