Discover Mississippi Palisades Campground

Mississippi Palisades Campground is located in Illinois' Mississippi Palisades State Park, a huge nature preserve with lush forests and bluffs sitting on the Mississippi River. The state park is near the border between Iowa and Illinois and is a three-hour drive from Chicago, a three-and-a-half-hour drive from Des Moines, and a three-hour drive from Milwaukee. Although you're within driving distance of Chicago and many other cities, RV camping here allows you to experience some of the most beautiful scenery that Illinois has to offer.

When camping in an RV at Mississippi Palisades Campground, you'll have a choice of 241 campsites, with 110 of them offering electric hookups. There are three buildings with showers and flush toilets located throughout the campground for your convenience. While there aren't water hookups at each campsite, there are water stations located throughout the campground. Sanitary dump stations are also available for your convenience. There are several shelters located throughout the campground too, which make for a great place to enjoy a meal with fellow campers. Camping within the state park means that hiking, fishing, and a number of other outdoor activities are all available at your fingertips.

The Great Outdoors

RV camping at Mississippi Palisades Campground is an incredible experience for nature lovers. There are 15 miles of hiking trails to explore while visiting the park. You can choose from a selection of easier, more leisurely trails at the north of the park, or more challenging trails in the southern section. The southern trails run along the bluffs, and many of them have beautiful overlooks of the river and the surrounding countryside. In the winter, there are cross-country ski trails as well as places to sled. Although it can be difficult to camp in the winter, it's worth visiting the park anyway if you enjoy snow sports. Those who really enjoy the cold can do some ice fishing on-site.

Since the park borders the Mississippi River, there are also plenty of places to go fishing and boating while you are visiting the area. There are several river access areas throughout the park where you can launch your boat, and boats of all sizes are allowed. There are many different types of fish that live in the river, with carp and catfish being the most common. If you're lucky, you may also find a bass or bluegill. On land, you can also go hunting - the park offers a three-day firearm hunting season each year, where you can hunt for deer and wild turkey. Be sure to check hunting regulations before you visit the park, as they may fluctuate from season to season.

For those who are a bit more daring, there are several rock climbing areas located throughout the park. Rock climbing is allowed at Twin Sisters, Indian Head, and Sentinel, which are marked on the park's maps. When you book an RV in Carroll County and are planning on going rock climbing, it's important to bring your own equipment, as it isn't provided in the park. If you love to explore, you can also go geocaching and metal detecting in the park. Geocaching requires a smartphone or GPS device and involves finding small "caches" that other users have hidden.

Exploring the Area

Mississippi Palisades Campground is located in Savanna, Illinois, a small town located along the Mississippi River. Although the town is small, there are several interesting things to do there when you aren't busy exploring the great outdoors. The Havencrest Castle is a historic home located in downtown Savanna that offers tours through its opulent interior. The Savanna Museum and Cultural Center is another fascinating attraction for a rainy day, with exhibits on the Civil War and other important moments in American history. You can also drive over the Savanna-Sabula bridge and explore the town of Sabula, which sits on a very small island in the Mississippi River.

If you're craving a satisfying meal while camping in an RV, Savanna has several options running along the main drag. You'll find cozy cafes for a daytime meal as well as plenty of casual options for dinner. Motorcycles are a big part of the culture here, and you'll find several motorcycle bars in town as well. When you're in town, ask around to see if there are any events going on - you may be able to find some live music or a trivia night. The town has a grocery store too where you can pick up essentials for your campsite. There's also a gas station where you can fill up the Savanna motorhome rental before you head out on your adventures.
