Never camped before? No problem! This is Perfect for the 1st time camper.
This is Full Service/All Inclusive

GlampingGoing camping, but with glamour. A combination of the two words. It's like regular camping , but with nicer things than usual, being warmer, and more comfortable. Glamping isn't done by usual outdoor types who climb mountains.
"Glamp" out with us on the fully wooded sandy beaches of the Illinois River. We start with a Potluck Dinner! Bring a dish to pass(see below). I will bring a huge tray of baked mostacioli. If you want meat for dinner please bring it to grill on one of our many coleman camp stoves that we will have available or our open fire pit grill. We will bring grills, water, plates, cups, silverware, napkins and miscellaneous camp things so you dont have to. We will also beshowing a MOVIE via a pico projector under the stars! Past titles have included The Goonies, Disney Natures Earth, and NatGeo. If you dont have a tent, there aretents for rent(includes free setup/takedown) (, or maybe someone has one to share! We will have campfires on the beach to enjoy! This event is perfect for the first time camper! We will be making a Full Hot breakfast in the morning including Starbucks coffee, eggs, muffins, bacon, and pancakes! Fill your belly, because next we set out on a guided kayak tour for approx. 2 hours. We will explore either the Mazon River or the Illinois River on our trip and identify any wildlife/plants that we see along the way.
