Pack 3894 Fall Campout – Apple River Canyon State Park

When & Where?The Pack 3894 Fall Campout will be held at Apple River Canyon State Park on Saturday October 9th, 2010, plan to leave Chicago @ 11 am. Apple River Canyon State Park is located in Apple River, IL ( NorthWest of Rockford) 90 miles from Chicago.

Why this location? We wanted to keep the cost low,  allow for enough campers ( most sites do not allow more 30 campers), and provide more adventure and trully get away from the city and for many of the scouts & even parent would be an experience they wont forget. Apple River Park will provide us with the following amenities:

Water Front Camping

Drive-in /Pull up Access to site

Long Hike Trails

Dark Sky for a Star Hike
Individual Fire/Charcoal Pits
Large Campground

How much? FREE! Just carpool with another Family member and pay for the tolls ( under $5) and gas.

See Google map below for details.
