Sorry, not really. The only place that I know of that is even close to what you are looking for is the Badlands in Attica, IN.

Im from algonquin and we used to wheel at Gavers in Woodstock but the cops got smart to that. You could go behind the fountains in mchenry. rt 31 by buss ford. Or just go find a gravel pit there are always ways in you just gotta look for them.

If no one's told you about it The Cliffs Insane Terrain Off-Road Park is in Northern IL AND it's legal.

Here's a link http://www.thecliffsinsaneterrain.com/

You can get there from Buffalo Grove in around two hours.

Take 53 south to 355 south to 55 south to 80 west. Get off at Rte 47 and head south a bit, not too far, to westbound Rte 6 . Route 6 will take you right to the door.

It's a nice place, but not for ill equipped or showy rigs. Most of the trails are very technical, very tight and very off camber. In fact some of the trails are really just narrow ravines that have had some of the trees removed. If it's been at all wet, it will be very gooey and slippery. The chance of body damage is high if your driving and tires aren't up to the task. Really aggressive mud tires are a must, Interco being the brand of choice, Swampers, Boggers, TSL's, LTB's, Trxus are all good, but not Thornbirds (the staff trucks all run Boggers as do many of the regulars). I have run it with radial mud tires and have done pretty well, and I've seen others running MT's there.

It's the closest place to you, and The Badlands is the next closest.

HTH

Oh come on Paul, its not that bad, just stay away if it has rained within 2 days of your trip.

My last outing there with my Dad (blue rubi) and my Brother (silver jk rubi)


Join a local club like GLJT.ORG or Terrajeepclub.com Lots of local people in the area.

I am on the BOD of Terra jeep club, If you are interested in joining PM me for info on how to join the "quick" way.

And please, keep your jeep on the road unless in a legal park, this hobby has alot of people fighting to end it and illegal wheeling only supports them!
