A great ride, fall camping, ghost stories around a campfire...and the worlds's largest corn maze!!! Its The a'MAZE'ing Ride
Lets take a ride up to Spring Grove, IL, home of Chain O Lakes State Park and Richardson's Farm, who has been offering the World's Largest Maize Maze for sometime with a different theme each year, this year is celebrating Lincoln's 200th birthday. The maze is 28 acres with 11 miles of trails. This year, there is also a Zip Line - 30' high and 700' long over a pupmkin patch.
The camp site it just under 2 miles from the maze.
The campgrounds offer trails through prairie lands and huge old oaktrees, equestrian (horsey) rides, and boat rentals.
Everything is fairly cheap...$12 campsites that can fit two tents (up to 8 ppl), $10 for the maze. Bring your own food, a large bundle of wood is $7 at the campground.
I am scheduling this for September 25th through 27th (Friday through Sunday). We depart on Friday morning, get to the grounds and setup camp. People who cant ride up on Friday can meet us on Saturday. Saturday, we go to the maze. (it may be a Maze Til Midnight night, so we'll decide what time we go). Back to camp for hangin round the fire, tellin ghost stories, munchin on some smores. We leave Sunday whenever (check out not till 3pm).
Metra is available for return trip.
I would also like to set the following weekend as a rain date. (Oct 2 - Oct 4).
