I am on the opposite coast, but what I usually do is go on google earth and look around the airport vincity for parking lots. From what I see on Google Earth it looks like Hinsdale road is your best bet for RWY 10 and for 28/33 Thompson Road seems like a nice spot.

Hope this helps-

When I was there a few years ago (2002), there was a small parking area along the approach road to the terminal (or maybe it was Air Cargo Rd), where you could park and view operations on Rwy 10/28, with a view of a couple gates on the southern side of the terminal.

I don't know if it is still there (it has been 11 years).
