We are now accepting overnight reservations! Please call Carla for more information.



Come stay aboard the USS Edson, the only surface warship in the Mid-West and watch history come alive. The ship is yours to explore – walk the decks, take command of the bridge and sleep in the same bunks as the men who once served on this amazing ship. Perfect for almost any group, including scouting and youth groups as well as family or adults-only events. An overnight stay on the USS Edson is something that will never be forgotten.

Groups will have access to explore the ship on their own until 11 PM. There is a large sreen TV and DVD player for use in the mess deck. You are welcome to bring your own drinks, snacks, and food or you may purchase them through us. Catering options are available as well.

You may schedule a guided tour or a question and answer session for the morning before you leave (for an additional charge).

We currently have 175 bunks available. Please keep in mind that they are not all together. Minimum group size is 10. Other groups may be booked at the same time but groups will not share sleeping areas.
