The unofficial kickoff to summer is this weekend, do you know how you are celebrating Memorial Day yet?

To me, a 3-day weekend is always an excuse to get away. In fact, a coworker and I got in a big discussion the other day about how he wants to buy a camping hammock and spend his weekends this summer checking out all the campsites in the Rockford area. Don't get me wrong, camping hammocks look cool and way comfortable, but that style of camping is still a little too "rough" for me. I need a bathroom...and a shower...preferably connected to the place I am staying else I will be...grouchy.

No matter what style of camping you prefer, there's a campground in Lena, Illinois that likely has exactly what you are looking for!

Not only is Lena KOA Holiday full of fun amenities, but they also offer several camping styles too including:

I already checked out the camping availability for this weekend at Lena KOA Holiday, and although the teepees are all reserved, there are still other options available, so you better book your family's spot right now!
