Do you operate a campground in Illinois? We’d like to meet you.

Come out to one of two Spring Meet & Greet Events!

Any and all operators of campgrounds in Illinois are invited to join the new Executive Director of the Illinois Campground Association (ICA) for a meeting and mixer. We’ve scheduled two dates and locations listed below to cover both the south and north parts of the state. Non-members are encouraged to attend.

We’ll catch up on news and issues impacting the Illinois outdoor hospitality industry, and provide information on how ICA is working for campgrounds as we move ahead under new management.

These 2024 Spring meetings are free and open to owners, managers and staff of any Illinois campgrounds, regardless of membership in the association. We hope to encourage new membership and foster continued membership, and find out what the association can do to benefit campground operators across the state. We’ll provide refreshments and lunch, plus tours of the host parks at the end.

Consider attending at one of two locations that work best for you, then register online, fill out the attendance RSVP/survey and send (links are below). There is no charge to register or attend.

April 23, 2024 (Northern IL): Mendota Hills Campground, 642 US Route 52, Amboy, IL, 61310. Your host: Jamie Rogers.

Message from the ICA Executive Director:

I look forward to meeting you!

Dear Illinois Campground Operators,

I hope you will consider attending one of the Spring Meetings slated for April 23 and 24, 2024. I very much look forward to meeting as many of you as I can, and working with you to support, promote, and empower the outdoor hospitality industry in Illinois.

During the meetings, you can get to learn more about the Illinois Campground Association and its mission, catch up on association business and programs, get updates, and share your thoughts about outdoor hospitality and campground management topics.

As always, if you have any questions, please let me know.

Best Regards,

Donald G. Bennett, Jr.
