We are the Rock Island District, Mississippi River Project, Recreation and Natural Resource Management Section. Our project encompasses 314 miles on the Mississippi River from Potosi, Wisconsin to Saverton, Missouri.
We provide 16 campgrounds, 14 day use facilities, 22 boat ramps, a visitor center and 55,000 acres of forested land. Our project is the oldest and one of the largest continually managed forested resources managed by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. We take pride in protecting our diverse natural resources while providing safe recreational opportunities for everyone to enjoy.
