Truck Camping: Garden of the Gods Illinois

This past weekend I was dying to give my truck camp setup another shot so I drove four hours from Indianapolis to Herod Illinois to the Garden of the Gods Wilderness. I stayed in the Pharoh campground and I was the only one there!! It was pretty awesome. The cost is only $10 a night and it is first come, first served. There are only 12 camping spots but each one of them has a decent view. There are vault toilets that are open during this time of the year. And there are a ton of trails in the area. I really enjoyed my set up and hope to get out again after some adjustments. Next time I visit the area, I plan to do some of the trails in Shawnee National Forest.
