C.A.M.P. Outing at Mississippi Palisades
May 21 @ 8:00 am - May 24 @ 5:00 pm CDT
This is an event organized by CAMP – Chicago Area Motocamping Pros. For information and registration visit Meetup: The first 2021 CAMP S’more – Mississippi Palisade State Park, IL or see description here:
“Join us on May 21-24 to kick off CAMP’s motocamping season in style! We are going to ride West to Mississippi Palisades State Park, in Illinois, and enjoy three days of riding and camping in what we hope will be warm weather by then!
This is the plan:
– You can meet us at the campsite directly on Friday night, or you can ride with us there from Chicago (details of the organized ride will be shared with registered participants). Friday night there will be a welcome dinner for everybody at the campground to get to know one another and get ready for Saturday’s and Sunday’s activities.
– On Saturday and Sunday May 22-23, you will be riding around on routes that we will have prepared for you, or hike or canoe or kayak or chill at camp. Whatever YOU want.
– On Monday May 24 we will ride back to Chicago (but of course you are welcome to leave on Sunday, if that works better for you).
Be prepared to carry all your camping needs. A support vehicle that may take extra stuff you don’t want to carry on your bike (i.e. coolers with your food or drinks) may be available, but with limited space (first come, first served).
Our base will be the campground right in Mississippi Palisades State Park, where we have reserved a limited number of campsites adjacent to one another. Campsites are $40 each TOTAL (including taxes and reservation fees) for three nights. Occupancy is capped at 4 people/2 tents per site. Do the math: you may be spending just $10 for the three nights…
If you are interested in getting one of the camping spots that we have reserved, please send us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org). Please note, this is a CAMP event only. The good news is that if you are not a CAMP member, you can become one very easily. Shoot us an email and we will let you know how.”
