Campground Events and Activities

Situated along a pristine backwater channel of the Mississippi River, Prairie Island Campground is designed with recreation in mind, no matter your age or what speed your recreation moves at. If you’re looking for ideas or just some supplies, be sure to visit the camp store – the hub of everything good at Prairie Island. Our store staff can help you with equipment rentals, water, road, and trail maps of the area, info on campground programming, and a nearly endless list of things you can do without going more than a few hundred yards from the campground.

Right onsite, you’ll love our partnership with a youth recreation program, a cache of rental canoes, kayaks, stand up paddle boards, and camping gear, our campfire concert series, two boat landings, and our sandy beach area. Within a stone’s throw are a deer park, a dog park, modern playgrounds, excellent fishing and waterfowl hunting, and miles of paddling, birding, hiking, and biking trails crisscrossing the area.

In short, this is a recreation paradise and we look forward to introducing you to it.
