Goose Island County Park & Campground

This county park is an island in the Mississippi River and is in the heart of the La Crosse District of the Upper Mississippi River National Wildlife and Fish Refuge. It is a wonderful spot to spend a day or more exploring the area on land or by water. On the canoe trail, signs will direct you along a marked trail through the sloughs and backwaters surrounding this wooded island. Exploring the island by water is a great way to see muskrat, mink and deer. Goose Island is large and has 400 campsites that are available by reservation. There are many family-based activities here, but there is enough land to accommodate birders and wildlife viewers who appreciate quiet landscapes. This property is a great place to stop and pick up some waterfowl as well as songbirds and raptors for your checklist.

Directions

Take Hwy. 35, 3 miles south of La Crosse to the junction with Cty. K and follow the main road west into the park.
