"Find Your Adventure"

At Base Camp, SIU students, faculty, and staff, as well as community members can rent a variety of outdoor equipment for a day or even several weeks. We have everything you need for a week-long camping trip, canoe, or kayak trip, and the equipment to help you enjoy the outdoors, no matter the season.

Stop by the Base Camp store across the hall from the West Weight Room and we'll get you outfitted for your next adventure and answer any questions you may have about heading to the outdoors!

Due to Covid-19, Base Camp will be adhering to guidelines put forth by the state of Illinois, SIUC, Touch of Nature, and the Student Recreation Center. The dynamic nature of the situation will restrict some of Base Camp's capabilities for the coming weeks, and altering our hours.
