Trail access is available from the main campground along the roadway.
The Shady Creek Recreation Area Trail is a great way to get out and explore nature along the scenic Mississippi River. The half mile trail forms a loop that connects to the main campground area. While visiting, there are playgrounds, picnic facilities, a boat ramp, and restrooms available. Camping is available from May 1 - October 25.
