Overview

Description

Merrick State Park is located on the beautiful backwaters of the Mississippi River. All Island Campground sites and some sites in the south campground have river access for mooring watercraft or fishing directly from the sites. There are 2.5 miles of manicured trails which are easily traveled with very few hills. Two boat landings provide easy launching for all sizes of boats. Canoes can be rented at the office. Shore fishing is very accessible for visitors without watercraft. A pet picnic area offers visitors a place to enjoy the parks with their pets. Pets must be on a leash at all times while in this picnic area and must be picked up after.
