Recreation on The River

Enjoy fun in the sun on the Mississippi River

When the weather warms up, head down to the Mississippi River for some fun in the sun. Whether it’s spending a relaxing morning paddle boarding, a sunny afternoon water skiing or a cool summer night cruising along the shore, the Mississippi River offers a multitude of activities for people of all ages and ability levels. Prefer to enjoy the river from the shore? Don’t miss a chance to cheer on the Backwater Gamblers Water Ski Club as they take on the Mississippi River at one of their free, water shows.
