***At this time overnight stays are NOT available on the USS Edson. We are hoping to start accepting reservations soon. Please watch this page for more information as it is announced. The information listed here is the tentative information for the overnight program. Please be aware that changes may be made before the program opens.
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.
Your overnight stay will include snacks the night of your arrival and a continental breakfast in the morning. Upgrades and other food options are available. You may also schedule a guided tour or a question and answer session for the morning before you leave (for an additional charge).
We currently have 53 racks available, however some are seperated from the main berthing area. We do not have a minimum number required to stay and may book other groups to fill space.
A $5 per person, non-refundable deposit is due within 14 days of your reservation to hold your spot.
You may add people to your reservation up until final payment is due. You MUST call to confirm that space is available.
Final payment is due 14 days before your stay.
A fee of $15 will be charged for “no shows”, remaining money will be refunded within 21 days of your stay.
Campers must be at least 5 years old.
We require a ratio of 1 adult for every 2 campers under the age of 10.
If your group requires all same sex campers, you must tell us when making the reservation.
Campers will need to bring their own bedding and pillows. Keep in mind there is no heat or air conditioning on the ship at this time.
