About: Situated inside the Mississippi River levee and bordered by the majestic river on its western edge, Great River Road State Park offers magnificent views of the ‘Father of Waters’ from a setting unmatched in natural beauty. The focal point of the park is a 75-foot high overlook tower, which provides panoramic views of the Mississippi River as well as being the ideal spot for a picnic. The park is named for the Great River Road, a scenic parkway that follows the Mississippi from its beginning as a small Canadian creek to its end at the Gulf of Mexico.

The 61 sites available for RV / tenting camping feature picnic tables, grills, and electrical and water hook-ups. A bathhouse with hot showers and laundry facilities and a central sewage dumping station are located in the developed camping area. A limited number of campsites are set aside for advance reservations. The remainder are filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Nature trails show the plants and animals of the bottomland hardwood forest and swamp. Several trails lead to the sandbar, which at low water form one of the largest beaches in the state. The sandbars are visited by a variety of birds and animals, some of which you may see, others will leave their interesting tracks.

Perry Martin Lake, a 30-acre oxbow lake of the Mississippi River, yields catches of bass, white perch, and catfish. A boat launch is available.

Deer Meadow is an 18 Hole Disc Golf Course. It is located in the bottomland Riverain Forest along the mighty Mississippi. Commonly seen Whitetail deer make play enjoyable. Disc course is open to the public, free of charge, however, the normal entrance fee is required. Disc can be rented or purchased from the park office. Southern National Disc Golf Association
