Park your vehicle. Pack your gear in our waterproof dry bags, board our shuttle. And head off to an adventure on the biggest river in North America! Camping: The camping is spectacular on the Mississippi River — it’s like having an entire ocean beach to yourself! Full of wildlife, and the wonders of nature. The stars are almost as good as western skies. You can find 5-star camping on land, but on the river it’s million star camping! It is primitive camping, so no bathrooms or showers. But, you can swim in the Mississippi, and there is plenty of privacy when you need it. We carry everything with us for all of our trips, and go completely self-contained with all canoe and survival gear, food, water, camp and kitchen equipment, and personal items. Route: We’ll paddle through the Muddy Waters Wilderness. This is the wildest stretch of river along the Lower Miss, full of big islands, wildlife, culture, history, back channels, and the big river meandering through it all. http://www.island63.com/expeditions-muddy_waters.cfm Island Exploration: We will camp on Mississippi River Islands with big beaches, swim holes, birds, turtles, and other wildlife, with an incredible variety of giant sandbars, wetlands, gravel/fossil bars, deep willow forests, and miles of beaches to swim from or walk along. So — a little bit of everything! We arrive as visitors, and respect the landscape and the river as such, the home of the richest biota in the heart of our country, including superlative birds, fish, crustaceans, and amphibians. Micro-biotas on the Mississippi include deep water, shallow water, forests, wetlands, sandbars, and meadows Erin Mulligan: Erin Mulligan is a teaching artist with the Mississippi Arts Commission, leading arts-integrated programs for schools and professional development for educators.
