Eaton Rapids Air
Eaton Rapids Air is a unique urban camping experience, where we shine a spotlight on small town America by lining the streets in Airstreams. Join us to “Aluminate Downtown” by getting to know the community, frequenting local businesses, supporting the local community centers, and drawing attention to everything the town has to offer.
Activities include shopping, dining, kayaking, concerts, campfires, and more! Best of all, it’s all for charity, and everyone is invited!
