Come paddle the river with us just east of Muskogee OK on the beautiful Illinois River. This stretch of water has been designated as a national scenic waterway. Camping at Eagle Bluff Resort if you don't own a personal kayak or just want to leave your kayak at home, we will rent canoes from the outfitter. He will carry us up the river and meet us at the take-out place.
We will paddle (float) for several hours on Saturday, so be sure to bring a lunch and water bottle. On Sunday, we will take a short paddle (2-3 hours) in the morning before departing.
If you register and pay your money by May 10, the price is only $20 for both camping AND canoe rental. This is a great deal! To reserve your spot, call Eagle Bluff at[masked] and give them our Express Code[masked] for the special pricing. At least 7 people must register by May 10 for us to get this deal. So if you are going with us, please register today! Thank you.
Food! Food is good. For Saturday lunch, we will pull out of the river onto a nice riverbank and eat lunch, so be sure to bring lunch and a water bottle on the river. You can always put them in a plastic trash bag to keep the water out.
For Saturday night dinner, we usually eat pot luck style. So if you would like to join us in the luck of the pot, bring a couple of items to share and we will have a feast.
For any other meals, you are on your own. Bring what suits you. We will plan to have a campfire on Friday and Saturday evenings for marshmellows, smores, etc.
We are camping in sites 230-232.
