Since there is a large contingent of Midwest Airstreamers, I have planned a rally near Rend Lake in Belton, IL. The rally will be held at the Whittington Woods Campground.
The rally dates are the 1st-3rd of May. The campground has full service facilities from Laundry and shower houses to groceries and a free pavilion. We will have an informal potluck dinner on Saturday evening at the pavilion. Trailer tours for the interested will be held Saturday from Noon to 2PM.
The campground has offered us the loop directly at the pavilion, and will provide free firewood for the firering located at the pavilion. The owners will also provide coffee and freshly made donuts for breakfast each morning in the pavilion (Free of Charge)
. From what I have been told, all the sites on this loop are full hook-up sites. The only difference is that six of the sites are with a 50 Amp hook-up. These sites can be used with a 50 to 30 amp adapter. The sites on the map the are on other loops do not offer full hook-ups, but a dump station is available on site for anyone not staying on the main loop.
Costs of the full hook-up sites will cost $24.50 per night with free coffee and donuts for breakfast.
Benton, IL has a quaint town square with several antique shops, the Pheasant Hill Winery, and several other small attractions
that look really interesting. Fishing at rend lake is less than a mile away.
This will be a great time for all involved. Experienced, first timers, full timers, vintage kin, or anyone just looking to attend an Airstream rally are welcome.
