DeKalb County Camping

Local adult & family tent camping opportunities. 

We have two camping locations available in DeKalb County: Shabbona Lake, and Mac Queen and both offer different takes on the camping experience. 
Shabbona Lake State Park offers a beautiful camping experience with its primary focus being the lake and its perimeter trails. At 1550 acres, Shabbona Lake has plenty of amenities to supplement its 150 Class A campsites and two cabins.
Mac Queen Forest Preserve is a 48-acre gem is in the township of Kirkland. The campground has eight primitive tent sites, five are located within a large semi-open area and three along the perimeter.

MacQueen Camping

Its claim to fame is its rustic nature. These are primitive campsites and you'll be required to hike in your gear. This adds to the location's rustic ambiance. 

It's all here. 

Shabbona Lake Camping

From hiking, camping, boating to state record fishing and hunting. One could say... "Lake Shabbona State Park, has it all!"
