Pool 13 on the Upper Mississippi River 

The Mississippi River Lodge is located on Pool 13 of the Mississippi River between Thomson and Savanna Illinois.   We are actually on the backwater "Big Slough" area and access to the main channel of the river is easy.   Spring Lake is just North and the Big Slough public boat ramp is only a quarter mile North.  Launching your boat is easy at the boat ramp and a dock is available on the property to moor your boat.  The Big Slough area has plenty of depth for boating and water skiing as well as many areas for fishing.

Pelican Island is only a few miles South on the Mississippi River.
