The Mississippi River Lodge is located on Pool 13 of the Mississippi River between Thomson and Savanna Illinois. We’re just an hour north of the Quad Cities, one hour south of Galena and 2 hours west of the Chicago suburbs.
We offer 4 bedrooms, 3 baths, living room with fireplace & big screen TV, deck with grill, a fully stocked kitchen (all you add is the food) and so much more. If you are a river lover, this is the place for you. Fishing, water skiing, tubing, or cruising up the river, it's all here for your enjoyment. Since we are located on Big Slough, off of the main channel of the river, you can have fun without having to deal with a lot of river traffic. Access to the main channel is easy if you want to cruise the river. Only five miles up the river is Lower Sabula Lake which offers a great sand beach. There is a public boat launch only a quarter mile from the house and a dock is provided to moor your boat at the house. If you do not have a boat, you can fish off the dock or the bank. Go to our website for a full listing of all the amenities, printable maps, pictures and more. Plan your next family vacation at our Mississippi River Lodge!
