Camping & Boating


Boating on the Mississippi River is always fun, but Pool 20 on the Mississippi guarantees your family and friends will have a great day on the river.

Bring your boat and trailer or camping gear. We have 10 riverside powered sites located on either side of the Warsaw ramp in Riverfront Park. Once you get on the river, you can head South to either party cove or 1 of 3 sandbars. Directly across from the ramp is Alexandria, MO and home to the Purple Cow bar and grill where you can sit on the deck and look back at Warsaw or throw some horseshoes with the locals. Up river on the shores of Keokuk, IA you can sit on even a larger deck at the SouthSide Boat Club and enjoy a beverage watching the barge traffic, bird traffic and all types of boat traffic. In between the Purple Cow and the SouthSide Boat Club is another large sandbar where the Des Moines River dumps into the Mississippi and we have the historical Warsaw Brewery bar and grill.


Since you can camp on the river bank, stay out a bit longer on the boat and visit the bars at night. All establishments have live music most Friday and Saturday nights during the summer. No matter where you boat, a day in Pool 20 is a day to be remembered.
