The company offers kayak rentals, guided kayak tours, and primitive camping right across from Starved Rock State Park
Chicago, Illinois: Kayak Morris, started in 2010, is an adventure and environmental education outfitter from Illinois that has given a whole new meaning to adventure in nature through its carefully curated vacation packages, including kayak rentals, kayak tours and camping opportunities at Kayak Starved Rock Campground, nestled in Starved Rock State Park.
“Our journey has been eventful and exciting. Starting in 2010, we have surely come a long way, and we feel thrilled each day to offer this unique opportunity to nature enthusiasts to connect with nature in its most beautiful way. We are grateful for the support our customers have shown us over the years,” Said Janee Matteson, Founder, Kayak Morris.
The Kayak Starved Rock Campground has become a popular destination for people seeking adventure on the Illinois River. The campground has campsites across from Starved Rock State Park, which offers magnificent views of the towering St. Peter’s Sandstone bluffs, soaring Bald Eagles, Great American White Pelicans, and beautiful Lotus Flowers.
The campsites offer a wonderful experience and sense of adventure to travellers with tents, pop-ups, ad teardrops; there is no electricity and water; however, the owners have ensured that every traveller gets a comfortable stay and have installed ultra-clean porta-potties. The portable equipment boasts motion sensor lights, spray underarm deodorant, wipes, hand sanitizer, and automatic air freshener bleached multiple times per day.
Only one hour and thirty minutes from Chicago, the campsite allows pets on the campground and even on kayaks. Travellers can spend time hiking 18 canyons of Starved Rock State Park, biking the I & M Canal, or kayaking to one of the locations.
The company also holds environmental educational tours for scout groups, youth groups and corporate groups. The all-inclusive Kayak tours/overnight Glamp Outs have proven to be extremely popular among kids as they offer an opportunity to interact with nature and at the same time learn about it.
“The educational centric tours have been carefully designed to include the element of learning and adventure, offering an all-in-one package. The tours teach kids about natural resources, wildlife, plant life, preserving them, and contributing to their conservation and management. We teach utilizing fossils, using Illinois Department of Natural Resources posters, flashcards of our state symbols and experiential learning tools (catch & release fishing, plant/tree identification, etc.),” Janee Matteson added.
Kayak Morris is helping people disconnect from the internet world and constant information overload and reconnect with nature. It enables them to re-connect with their friends and family by offering services at three locations – Kayak Morris, Kayak Starved Rock and Kayak Starved Rock Campground, all within 60 mins of the suburbs.
