Hey pat,,I know that you said you knew about DesPlaines Area, now,,I don't know if you were ever there, but in case you haven't,,It's a good spot. There's two ranges, both have several benches to use. Just bring all your own supplies, & clean up your mess. Sometimes there are a few others out there & sometimes, you're by yourself. best part is---it's FREE ! That's right,,FREE! I know it's a bit of a ride for you, but I don't think there's any public place around the area. Did I mention it's FREE! ? Also, there is no time limit, stay as long as you like. Hope this helps.

I am not sure which is closer but check out Willow Slough in Indiana near Morocco.

Bring your guns and shells. If you need a slinger that is available there are 3-4 places to shoot from and you clean up your mess. And all of it is FREE

They also have target ranges available as well as a 1200 acre pond with some really big northerns. Lots and lots of panfish and bass.

Open Thurs-Sunday *8AM-4PM.

Bring your own food and beverages.
