It’s that time of year again and we will be hosting the Glamour Camping Weekend the first weekend in June. Dust the cobwebs off your old vintage rig and join us. Anyone is welcome, new campers or old. This is a family event, so yes there will be kids! No reserved spots, first come first serve. We will find a place for you! Events will start out on Friday, June 3rd with a community picnic starting at 5:00 p.m. at Country Cabins located one mile East of Chariton Iowa on US Highway 34. Simply bring a covered dish of your choice and we will supply the drinks and BBQ dogs, brats and hamburgers. Public is invited to attend. Providing it does not rain like it has for the last two years we will have entertainment. Larry and Jean Wheeldon and band Lonesome Country. There will be a dance floor so you can do some boot scootin’ as well. Sit around the campfires and stroll through the grounds and view the vintage campers and new cabins. There are trails down to Lake Ellis and also trails across the highway down to Red Haw Lake. Bring your fishing poles and enjoy landing some lunkers. There will also be a “Show and Shine” car show held Friday evening at the campground, weather permitting.
There are County-wide garage sales that begin on Saturday morning, June 4th and also the Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt that begins on June 3rd and continues the 4th and 5th in surrounding towns. Bring your dancing shoes and 50’s attire for Saturday evening and enjoy 50’s night at the Soda Pop Saloon next door to Country Cabins. Always one of the favorite events of the year, you can enjoy great food beginning at 6:30 and the music starts at 7:30 and ends at 10:30. There is a $6 cover charge at the door for this event. There is also plenty to do with the kids with the Hillbilly Mini-golf and Hook, Line and Sinker Bait shop, Frontier Trading Post and State Park beach and trails all with-in walking distance. Sunday can be spent relaxing with family or checking out one of the several places in Chariton that have great breakfast and brunch specials. Take a stroll around the town square to see all of the historical restoration being done. It is really starting to look great!
