Event Details


Come on down and camp out with us on the sandy wooded beaches of the Illinois River. Primitive only camping at its best right between the I & M Canal AND the Illinois river! Our kayaks/canoes will be right on the beach with us.  No noisy RV's to listen to and better yet, a Porta Potty within steps from your tent!  This is High End camping at its best.

Last year campers brought, baked brie, vegetarian chili, spice bread(made in a dutch oven), primal cookies and much more!  I will be bringing chicken fajitas to make for dinner. 

There will be FIREWORKS right down and across from our campground area.  Make sure to buy battery operated lights and decorate your boat up.  At 7:30 we will be paddling over to the state park area where we will have a venetian boat parade guided kayak tour and then raft up and watch the fireworks show!

Also if you dont have a tent, there are tents for rent.

This event is perfect for the first time camper!  We bring grills, ice water(just bring a water bottle & powder drink mix), firewood and miscellaneous camp things so you don't have to. I will be makingStarbucks coffee in the morning and I will supply eggs, bacon, pancakes for breakfast.
