Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River RV Park


We returned to Tom Sawyer's Mississippi River RV Park because we had a good visit in November 2006.  The park had been flooded during the heavy 2008 rains but was drying out when we arrived.  We wanted to be in the new section tailored for fifth-wheels.

The site is the new section are positioned so the rear end of trailers face the Mississippi.  Seats along the bank for barge watching.

The old section was better suited for motorhomes with the fronts facing the river.
