Camp at one of Wilson Island’s many large, well-shaded campsites. The modern style camp area offers visitors showers, flush toilets, electric campsites and two large youth group camping areas.
Hike on the approximately five miles of trails throughout Wilson Island. These trails also can be used for snowmobiling, cross-country skiing and mountain biking.
Hunt in the hundreds of acres of public hunting areas. The entire recreation area, except where there are campgrounds and other developed sites, is open for hunting.
Fish in the Missouri River for walleye, paddlefish, catfish and more. Right on the river, Wilson Island offers a boat ramp and is the perfect place to cast a line.
Bird watch in the rolling Loess Hills. The wave-like hills look over the Missouri River and make a great place to see migratory birds, especially in the spring and fall.
