For a different type of camping experience, why not try the Fairport Recreation Area Campground. Fairport is located right on the Mississippi River and the campground offers campsites with electrical hook-ups, modern restroom and shower facilities, as well as a trailer dump station.

There are three boat ramps available at the Fairport area and provide plenty of boating access to the "Father of Waters." A fish cleaning station is provided as well as courtesy docks for loading and unloading boats.

The Fairport Recreation Area provides excellent access and viewing of the Mississippi River. The large towboats, recreational boaters, river wildlife (especially birds) and the majesty of the river all parade in front of the campground.
