- $23 for a six-mile float trip for two ($46 value)
Arrowhead Resort’s rafts carry floaters down six miles of the meandering Illinois River. With plentiful scenic spots along the river, rafters can paddle to the shore to relax and lounge on sunny days. The resort carts riders up to their starting point safely in buses.
Jack Spears and his sons David and Austin want people to love the Illinois River as much as they do, so they placed their resort's expansive camping, RV, and cabin grounds on the bank in positions that allow boarders to appreciate the scenery year-round. In the summer, their General Store's ice-cream fountain pours nonstop as river-goers take a rest in the shop's shade. The resort boasts year-round security to preserve campers' gear and scare off loitering snowmen in the winter. The staff also doles out dry goods, supplies, and groceries to campers or families staying in the manors of Pine Valley Retreat throughout the year.
