The drive took 8 hours from the Chicago area. Google maps says it takes 5.5 but we were towing our camper. We also had a trailer tire blow out when we were just an hour from the campgrounds.
I'm always looking for easy and fun ways to entertain our kids while we are camping. Sometimes we travel to amazing destinations that provide the entertainment and activities but there are times when we need a little something to keep our kids happy, occupied and out of the fire pit ashes...lol
