Cornfest Fireworks kayaking tour campout

3rd annual Corn Fest Fireworks Paddle/Venetian Kayak Tour Parade/Potluck/Beach Camp out


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! Our kayaks/canoes will be right on the beach with us.  No noisy RV's to listen to and better yet, a 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! 

There will be FIREWORKS right down and across from our campground area.  Make sure to buy battery operated lights and decorate your boat up.  At 7:30 we will be paddling over to the state park area where we will have a venetian boat parade guided kayak tour and then raft up and watch the fireworks show!

Also if you dont have a tent, there are tents for rent.

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.

Please post what you will be bringing/making so that we don't have 20 pasta salads! :)

Glamping
Going 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).   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.     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!    There will be a Full Hot breakfast in the morning including Starbucks coffee, eggs, muffins, bacon, and pancakes!
