Lodging Information

For our warrior participants, their lodging requirements will be paid for in full by the Fishing for Freedom sponsors and donors. The Fishing for Freedom lodging Point of Contact (POC) will contact them with their lodging information at least one week prior to the event as we will fill rooms based on the information that the warriors have provided during the registration process. If you have any special needs or accessibility issues, please make sure to make a note of it in the comments block on the registration form. There will be several accessible rooms available.

We ask that you utilize double occupancy in all rooms

Lodging is available for boaters at several locations in Quincy Illinois. Some of the locations are within a block from the Mississippi River. You should contact the hotels/motels that are listed on our Lodging Information Sheet and identify yourself as a "Fishing for Freedom" participant in order to get into the designated rooms that have been set aside for this event. Volunteer boaters are responsible for their lodging expenses and making their individual reservations.
