Scenic community campground

 This is a small but beautifully maintained city park in the charming village of Palisade. It provides easy access to recreational activities such as fishing and boating on the Mississippi River, and hiking, cycling or riding ATV’s on the nearby the Soo-Line Trail which stretches from Moose Lake to Cass Lake. See info on the Soo Line trail here:

There are campsites designed for RV’s and trailers, and other sites perfect for tenters, including sites for through-paddlers on the Mississippi Headwaters Water Trail 

(see water trail map here:  https://files.dnr.state.mn.us/maps/canoe\_routes/mississippi4.pdf

 There is a good quality boat landing and ramp, fishing piers, nice full service bathrooms, playground and picnic shelter, and easy walking access to the town center with hardware store, gas, and several nice cafes with good home cooking. The location is very scenic, and the campers seem to be friendly and family oriented. There is are several educational kiosks on the premises for learning about the river which is a nice touch. I would recommend this for paddlers passing through, or as a destination for weekend recreation.
