Classic Camping is defined as “The use of tools, techniques, and traditions in the style of the Golden Age of Camping. (1880-1930).” In other words, it’s “Where the frontier skills of Daniel Boone meet the industrial age of Henry Ford.” In the 1920s, the advent of exploring the countryside and camping out in your car became an incredibly popular phenomenon. Model T and Model A Fords could often be seen exploring the country as these early “off-roading” cars opened up new ways to explore our nation. Join us as we host living historians and their beloved cars portraying these early off-road campers.
We will partner with the The Farm at Prophetstown to bring you a fun day of classic camping traditions. $5 per car, plus Prophetstown State Park admission. 10:00am-5:00pm
