Clark's Ferry Recreation Area Not Opening as Scheduled

Published April 6, 2014

Muscatine, IA - The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Mississippi River Project announces that Clark’s Ferry Recreation Area will not be opening as scheduled on April 11, 2014. 

Our current IA DNR water permit does not allow any human contact with the current water supply as we have a compromised well casing.  We are in the process of getting all the required paperwork and approvals to drill a new well to attempt to alleviate this problem.  Once the new well is drilled and we are getting successful water samples per IA DNR requirements; the park will open as soon as it is safe to do so.

To learn more and for other recreation area updates, you are encouraged to visit   For additional information please contact:  Muscatine Park Rangers, 810 Main Street, Muscatine, IA 52761or call 563-263-7913.
