Camping is available for FREE at the Midwest Outdoor Experience.
This was one of the more popular trail stops in 2013! The phrase "this is much bigger than I thought" was overheard several times by anglers last year. There are live bands, craft beers, vendor booths, action exhibits, and many things that can occupy your time Friday night and after the tournament on Saturday. Anyone is able to camp free at the festival.
THERE WILL BE NO SHUTTLES PROVIDED: YOU MUST PROVIDE YOUR OWN SHUTTLE OR CONTACT THE APPROPRIATE LIVERY TO SET ONE UP! The maps listed below show several different canoe livery's that can help you with your shuttle. Another option on finding a shuttle is to post to our Facebook page asking for help HERE
