Flaming Prairie Park

A pretty little park with a beautiful, natural wetland. The Mississippi River is a short hike over the levee. The

campground is spacious, with plenty of room to park your boat and trailer nearby.

NOTE: This area is often closed when the Mississippi River is high. Check the News for current information about closures.
