This 200,000-acre National Wildlife and Fish Refuge protects 284 miles of the Mississippi River in four states. Offering a corridor two to five miles wide, the refuge includes islands, wetlands, and river shoreline with some beaches and high cliffs.
It’s not in a wilderness condition. The river has many dams and locks, and highways often run close by. The refuge nevertheless helps preserve a diverse wildlife which includes white-tailed deer, coyote, fox, and bald eagle.
Activities: Canoeing and other boating are possible on the river, as is fishing. Hunting is permitted in season. There are no maintained foot trails.
Camping Regulations: Except where posted otherwise, primitive camping is allowed on the islands and along the shore for up to 14 days. Campfires are permitted.
For Further Information: Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge, P.O. Box 415, La Crosse, WI 54601.
