There are lots of things to do in and around Fisherman’s Corner. You can stop by some of the area’s dog-friendly trails for a relaxing stroll or a challenging hike! The Great River Trail is a good one — it connects to the campground and runs along the Mississippi River. It will take you through forest and marsh ecosystems all the way to Rapids City. The trail also connects to quite a few other trails if you and your pooch want to keep exploring; these include Grand Illinois Trail and Mississippi River Trail. If you want to enjoy some aquatic activities on the river, you can head to Fisherman’s Corner Day Use Facility. There, you can find a canoe ramp and fishing areas. Need more to explore?
