Illinois & Wisconsin State Parks

A handful of state parks and recreational areas in Wisconsin and Illinois have been selected as host sites for short excursions of 1-2 nights.  These hidden gems offer quality facilities and amenities on shores of inner lakes and rivers all year long.  Each site is carefully evaluated and chosen because of an inherent quality or characteristic which may be related to the excursion's overall theme or targeted outcome.  Another consideration when selecting destinations is the opportunity for  "hands-on" activities which reinforce the larger curriculum theme, objectives and desired outcome for the wilderness experience.
