    from west union, you take the Martinsville blacktop west towards Martinsville. several miles down this road there will be a sign on the north side of the road that says wilderness lake camp ground, but you want to turn on the southbound road to get there. Just follow the road and it will take you right to it!

    If you do not mind adding another hour to your travels, US 20 offers some spectacular scenes. This route allows you to experience the Mississippi River and Dubuque. Driving towards Galena you will pass through the Driftless Area where river valleys are embedded deep in the landscape, a phenomenon from the last glacial period.

    Many of the museums in Chicago, like the excellent Art Institute, offer free admissions on certain days/time. There's some free attractions on Navy Pier, plus the zoo is free seven days a week. You should also stroll around Millennium Park, which has gardens, sculptures, good views of the skyscrapers, and free concerts throughout the summer. For more ideas, check out this article from National Geographic Traveler (http://traveler.nationalgeographic.com/2007/07/free-city/chicago-text/1) and also the website of the Chicago Tourism Board (http://www.choosechicago.com/free_chicago/Pages/default.aspx). Lastly, while it's not technically in Illinois, Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore is free year-round and is going even "freer" this year by offering no-fee parking as part of the National Park Service's "Fee Free Weekends" program (http://www.nps.gov/indu/parknews/fee-free-weekends.htm). Hope this helps!
