About Clarks Ferry
Clarks Ferry is a outdoor lovers delight, with fantastic bird watching and lots of shore fishing opportunities. The park has plenty of trees to lounge under while taking in the spectacular views of the mighty Mississippi River. Natural Features: The park is surrounded by large mature trees along the Iowa side of the Upper Mississippi River. The Upper Mississippi is the section of the river that starts in the headwaters of Lake Itasca, Minnesota and flows 1,250 miles to Cairo, Illinois, where it joins with the Ohio River. Recreation: Take the kids to one of the two playgrounds, play a game of horseshoes or go boating. The Mississippi River draws crowds of anglers for channel catfish, bluegill, walleye, crappie and northern pike. Facilities: Picnic tables, campfire rings, and 50-amp electric hookups are provided at every campsite. Boat ramps are also onsite. Nearby Attractions: Clarks Ferry is near the Shady Creek Recreation Area and the Wildcat Den State Park. ACTIVITIES Day Use Area: Amphitheater
