Welcome to Skydive Chicago
Your 230-Acre Playground!

Nestled on the West bank of the Fox River roughly 70 miles from Chicago lies the Skydive Chicago Airport, designed and built from the ground-up to function as a Skydive training and recreation center.

directions

3 super twin otters

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.

1 sky van

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.

More TBA

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.
