The Levee District in East Peoria is a hotspot for entertainment, shopping and dining. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that’s where you’ll find the Bass Pro Shops/Cabela’s Boating Center!
In addition to the area’s largest selection of outdoors gear for hunting, fishing, camping and more, you’ll find the best food around at Uncle Buck’s Fish Bowl & Grill and a wide selection of America’s favorite boats, quality off-road vehicles and motorized bikes.
“If it plays in Peoria …” is a common phrase in the marketing industry and denotes how many marketing concepts are tested here in the heart of Illinois. If it’s successful here, there’s a great chance it’ll be popular elsewhere in the country.
We are located off Exit 95, just north of the bridge where I-74 crosses the Illinois River. We receive a lot of visitors who are travelling cross country on the highway.
In addition to our store and the Levee District, the area offers plenty of reasons to spend time in the area with your family. Throughout the year, such events as the Red, White & Boom at the 4th of July, Festival of Lights during winter (complete with a magnificent parade of illuminated floats) and Folepi’s Enchanted Forest are all must-see experiences. The EastSide Centre and Avanti’s Dome are well-known sports complexes. And you don’t want to miss the Caterpillar Tractor Company headquarters, Visitor Center and Riverfront Museum!
Of course, we’re more than just a destination—we’re your source for all things outdoors, boating and off-roading. And that includes service to keep you out there for years to come!
