One of our many get-together with family and friends. The kids love roasting marshmallows just about every night of the summer. Also, we just added a trampoline!
The apple trees were in full bloom last spring. If you visit in the Fall, be sure to pick plenty for yourselves.
We love how trails connect the woods, provide accessibility for deer, and promote the ecology of forest.

Solid tent platforms
Our permaculture designed 1/2 acre pond and central barn made from shipping containers are two of our key features. Fresh drinking water and electricity are found at the barn, just a short walk from the camping areas.
Jim Penrod is our site manager, permaculturist, teacher and farmer at Bending Oak. He will be your host.  If you have any questions he is very knowledgeable and happy to share. If you wish to be left alone, he totally gets that too. You are in great hands.
Here is a close-up look at the barn. Notice the 20' shipping containers that make up the walls and structure. Add trellises and some roofing and you've got a barn.
Waking up to this.

The wide open area for camping is flat and perfect for pitching a tent!
The views all around the campsite were beautiful, it really was nestled into the perfect little piece of countryside.

The lodging quarters of the retreat center. Four large rooms and four shared bathrooms.
The Landing is bordered by the Kankakee River. The river was peaceful and great for bird watching. We also saw evidence of lots of other wildlife.
We camped out on air mattresses in one of the four well-heated sleeping rooms. Plenty of space and nice and bright. Stephen said they'll soon be filled with bunks and hammocks for sleeping.
We collected wood from near the trails to build our fire.
Enjoying the last of the day's sunlight as we built our fire for dinner on the shared patio space.
