Next Meetup

Annual Memorial Weekend Canoe Adventure
More details to come. We are going to Eleven Point River for the first time ever. It is a national scenic river and sure to be a good time. We will drive down to Southern Missouri Friday night and camp locally by Alton. We will get on the river by noon on Saturday and be on the river until Monday at noon. More details on the length of each day to come. This is a fast moving river with class 2 rapids (rated for beginner and intermediate). Plan to camp on the river on Saturday and Sunday nights. I will provide more details as we firm up the trip details.

What we're about

Public Group

Welcome to the Peoria Backpackers Meetup Group. If you like the outdoors as much as we do, and love sitting around the camp fire telling tall stories, this group is for you. Come join us as we trek out into the Wilderness. We will learn the basics of backpacking, including gear, clothing, and meals. WE have a fun group of people that will keep you laughing and having a good time.

Before joining this group, keep in mind that we are mainly a Backpacking Group. Our Events are tailored to backpacking. You will be expected to have your own gear (although we do share) and be physically fit. Please read our FAQ page posted on our Message Board.
