Weekend & Day Trips Our talented and experienced staff plan short, fun-filled excursions to local areas such as Des Moines River, Blue Mounds, Sugar Bottom, and others. Try canoeing, kayaking, rock climbing, mountain biking, and hiking with our staff. These trips give you an opportunity to meet new people, relax and improve your outdoor skills. Extended Trips Need something to do over break? Our exteneded trips cater to students wanting to escape the demads of school. Join the ORP staff for adventures in rock/ice climbing, whitewater rafting, canoeing, kayaking, caving, and backpacking that you’ll never forget. We go to places like the Everglades, Green River, and other exotic places!

ISU now has two rock climbing walls! One is located in the new State Gym facility and the other in the Lied Recretion Center. If you are looking for a challenge, come and try the 40’ wall in State Gym! Numerous routes have been set on the wall that range from beginner to expert. There also is a bouldering wall in the new facility. The climbing wall at the Lied Recreation Center will now be used as a bouldering wall where you can hone your skills and get a great workout. If you have a group that is interested in renting a climbing wall, please contact the ORP..
