Purchased in March 2018, the 7.73-acre park known as Riverside Landing is located along the Mississippi at 600 Kampville Drive. According to the county, it will be developed into a unique outdoor recreation attraction with several small and large campsites that can accommodate recreational vehicles (RV), day-use picnic areas, a walking trail and a play area for children. Restroom facilities, water and electric also will be installed.
“Riverside Landing is going to be the place to go for water sports, camping, fishing, and for anyone who wants to enjoy the great outdoors,” St. Charles County Parks Director Ryan Graham said.
To prepare for construction, the park will close Monday, Feb. 1. It is anticipated that Riverside Landing will reopen to the public later in 2021.
For the safety of the public, the park boat ramp, including the dock, boat slips and kayak launch area will be unavailable for use. Fishermen and recreational boaters are encouraged access to the Mississippi River using the County Park Department’s other free boat ramp at Hideaway Harbor Park, 1550 Hideaway Harbor Drive in Portage des Sioux.
