Boating

Strap down your canoe or kayak, hook up your fishing boat trailer, slide in the fishing poles, toss in the life jackets and hit the road! Put in at any of the numerous boat launches along the river, or head off the byway to any of the nearby recreational areas. From fishing to water skiing, we have the destinations you need to enjoy a day out on the water. In order to ensure an enjoyable day on the water, make sure your boat/watercraft is registered before heading out. Visit the Illinois Department of Natural Resources website for more information. Need more information on navigating the Mississippi River? Visit the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers website.
