Tunes, Trails, Tubes & Tents Adventure Weekend!!

Kayaking and camping have been cancelled due to weather concerns and hazardous conditions on the river. Please still join us for the Saturday bike ride and Eagles tribute band concert on Saturday night in Akron

 

 

Eagles Tribute Band at Lock3, Kayaking, Tubing, Cycling and optional Camping:

This will be a weekend of fun events around the Stow/Kent/Akron area.  We will cycle on the Hike & Bike trail, kayak and tube on the river in Kent, catch the band "Hotel California" at Lock3Live, and camp at Silver Springs Campground in Stow.  You can come for any events or any portion of the weekend that you choose. So grab your sense of adventure and come join us for some FUN!

 

DETAILS:

Lock 3 Live in downtown Akron holds free outdoor concerts during the summer.  Bring a chair or blanket and relax on the grassy hillside while enjoying the show.  Food and drinks are available.  On Saturday July 20 the Eagles tribute band "Hotel California" performs a free concert starting at 8:30pm. Opening band comes on at 7:00.

About 15 minutes away is Silver Springs Park and Campground.  I've camped there twice.  $12 per night.  It's a small, quiet campground with just 27 campsites.  There's a picnic pavilion, fishing pond, ball fields, water & electric (no showers). We will camp there friday and saturday nights.  It is directly adjacent to the paved Hike and Bike Trail where we will ride on saturday.

Sunday we'll go kayaking and tubing with Crooked River Adventures in nearby Kent (10 minutes away).

Tentative Schedule:

Friday night -- camping and bonfire at Silver Springs Campground

Saturday morning -- Bike ride of about 25 miles on the Summit County Bike & Hike Trail (directly adjacent to the campground).

Saturday afternoon -- potluck picnic at the campground

Saturday evening -- Hotel California tribute band at Lock3 in Akron

Saturday night -- camping and bonfire

Sunday -- Kayaking and tubing on the Cuyahoga River with Crooked River Adventures in nearby Kent.

 

I will post each of the above activities as a separate event (click on the links for each day in the schedule above). Please RSVP on this page if you are attending for the entire weekendOR RSVP on the other pages if you plan to attend several individual events but not for the whole weekend. Please email me if you have any questions.

      Thanks Chuck but we are not allowed to transport firewood between parks because of the bug problem. There will be firewood on-site that we can purchase very reasonably.

    That sounds really cool. Like Robin mentioned plans can always change but I have a place down at portage lakes I never get to maybe I can kill two birds with one stone
