Creepy Camping time is here again!

The staff at Iowa County Conservation is busily preparing escape room clues and lining up talent for the night hike for their annual Creepy Camping weekend that will be held September 27th and 28th.

We have extended the very popular escape room to include 5 more time slots for adults on Friday evening. With these additional time slots added to the 12 time slots on Saturday there will be 17 opportunities to help save planet Earth from an invasion.  An alien has escaped from Area 51 and teams of 2-5 people have 30 minutes to decipher clues left behind or it will contact the mother ship and life on Earth will cease as we know it. If you and have the skills we need your help!

Kids will have the chance to use their brain power to help find a lost artifact in the Park Poacher Escape Room. Teams of 2-5 kids and 1-2 guardians will have 15 minutes to discover and solve clues that lead to the hidden artifact stolen by poachers.

We are also excited to have the Marengo Haunted Barn host a viewing of the Rocky Horror Picture Show on Friday evening. Tickets and prop bags can be purchased at the Nature Center on Friday evening by adults 18 and older. Find a sitter for the kids  and come have a crazy fun time. Costumes are welcome! Tickets will cost $5 per person and prop bags will cost $5. Quantities are limited for props. No outside props are allowed.

We are also holding our annual costume contest, campsite decorating contest, and dummy board tournament again this year as well as trick-or-treating in the campground. We will have a professional face painter at the Nature Center from noon – 4pm on Saturday.

The 4 Leaf Clover 4-H club has been growing some great pumpkins for their pumpkin rolling contest on Saturday morning and the Round House.

With so much planned you should be marking your calendar to come to the lake!
