2nd annual Corn Fest Fireworks Paddle/Venetian Kayak Parade/PotluckBBQ/Be­achCamp

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!  No noisy RV's to listen to and better yet, a pimped out 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 the river from our camping area.  Make sure you buy battery operated lights so that you can decorate your boat. After dinner, we will be setting off in our decorated boats for a short paddle down to the state park where we will do a venetian kayak parade before the fireworks and then floating in the water to watch the fireworks.  You may also choose to watch the fireworks from the campground beach instead.


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 making Starbucks coffee in the morning and I will supply eggs, bacon, pancakes for breakfast.
