Which Lake Michigan spots in Chicago allow parking with a trailer?
Jackson Park (63rd St.) inner harbor permits only cars with trailers, but charges $25. (This is the lot on the west side of Lake Shore Drive, which you access from Hayes.) You can park a car and trailer at 12th Street Beach, but you pay for two vehicles there. The fee varies depending on special events. Off-season you might be able to park at Diversey -- again for a fee -- but we've found permission to enter the lot somewhat hard to predict. You can also park with a trailer at Montrose/Wilson along the side of the street if you can find a spot, and at Calumet in a lot (for a fee).
