Enjoy the great outdoors, sweet s’mores and country chords at Kishauwau Cabins’ exclusive new Campfire Concert event. Taking place May 20 to 23, this special getaway package includes a community country-style picnic dinner, a bonfire and s’mores, a tropical snow cone, and an intimate outdoor concert with rising country star John King.

Conveniently located just minutes away from the famed Starved Rock State Park, Kishauwau Cabins offers beautiful, four-season cabin rental units surrounded by picturesque woods. Nestled on the banks of the Vermilion River, just seven miles from the gates of Starved Rock State Park, these cozy cabins will bring guests closer to nature, while providing all the comforts and amenities of home. The 17 luxury cabins at Kishauwau are amply spaced out to give guests privacy and a sense of wilderness seclusion, while still only being a short drive from some of Starved Rock Country’s best attractions.

To take part in the inaugural Campfire Concert event, guests must book a cabin for all three nights beginning May 20 and departing May 23. The concert will take place at 7 p.m. May 21, on Kishauwau’s sprawling central lawn, just a short walk away from all private cabins.

John King Kishauwau

Featured musical artist John King, a rising star in the contemporary country scene, has a talent for crafting songs that express the human experience, from growing up to falling in love. Inspired by country greats like Garth Brooks, Johnny Cash and Alan Jackson, King learned how to play guitar and was writing his own songs by age 16. His first full album, “Always Gonna Be You,” already has become a favorite for many country music fans. Equally as twangy as it is full of pop and soulful roots, you can’t help but sing along to these modern classics.

The exclusive package includes a community country-style picnic dinner with baked ham, fried chicken, red potatoes, macaroni and cheese, green beans, and a brownie, along with a bonfire and s’mores bar, and one small Tropical Sno Cone per guest, provided by Starved Rock Tropical Sno.
