Skydive Chicago's 230-acre complex boasts a large 15,000 square foot, shaded hangar that adjoins an additional 22,500 square feet of classrooms, common areas with satellite feed, recreation centers with pool tables and video games, a pro shop, video department and deli—Eat Up! Cafe— that serves food and alcoholic beverages.

Just to the East is a full hook-up campground featuring a large pond surrounded by sprawling decks and highlighted by a serene island. The north shore boasts a white sand beach adjoining a large pavilion with showers, laundry facilities, volleyball court and a private disc golf course. At night, enjoy movies or a club-type party at our Tiki Hut or SkyLounge Bar.

The whole complex is surrounded by acres of pastures that gently roll to the banks of the Fox River where you can walk/hike/bike/camp. Horseback Riding is also available around the corner.
