Island Campground With Incredible Water Access

Second stay, first review of Merrick.  We have always reserved an Island site, since they offer the best privacy from neighbors in southern camp along the Mississippi backwaters on Fountain City Bay.  We always bring the kayaks, so the water access offered is why we stay.  

3 Campgrounds:

  • Site 50, evening sunset.  Great site to launch kayaks from, or the rental is just south from here!
  • Paddling
  • Strava screenshot for route to river.  And note AT&T coverage at campsite.  Pretty decent!!! 😎

Good fall camping

Clean large flat campsites. Boat landings are under construction. LOTS of poison ivy in the south loop campsites.

Beautiful views of the lake.

There was a really nice view of the lake, and a nice clearing up towards the skies, but still adequate trees. Some mosquitos / flies. Overall very nice campsite. One downside was neighbor chopping wood at 6 am Sunday.
