What we're about

The Mackinaw Canoe Club of Central Illinois is a not-for-profit organization of amateur canoeists and kayakers whose sole purpose is to promote the safe and responsible recreational use of navigable waters throughout Illinois and neighboring states. There is a membership fee of $15/year.

This Meetup Group is for members only. Club events, trips, an annual meetings are scheduled here. Over winter, we usually schedule pool sessions to keep our skills fresh. All different skill levels are welcome.

We have a Facebook Group, by the same name, where more day-to-day messages are exchanged, such as questions on river levels, inquiries about interest in a new trip idea, or sharing personal trip photos, so join us there as well.

See you on the river!
