Blanchard Island Recreation Area

New Boston, Illinois

This 6.5 acre park is a Class C campground along the Mississippi River and collects a $12 camping fee from May 15th through October 15th.  It has 34 primitive campsites and all of them have great views of the river.  The park is shaded by large mature maple, cottonwood, and sycamore trees.  These campsites are perfect for tents and small trailers and shorter motor homes. This is a great “off the beaten path” campground for those who appreciate the peace and quiet that this has to offer.  It is located off the main channel of the river offering a nature lover’s experience and fishing hotspots.
