Marquette Park Reviews & Ratings
A nice peaceful area along the Mississippi River in Savanna IL. They have boat launches and designated fishing areas. Plenty or benches and pavilions to stop and enjoy the beauty.
We have been here before when we go through this area. It is a beautiful, peaceful place to sit and watch activity on the river. It is kept very clean
I just love watching the River. Lots of good seating and picnic ing.
Unfortunately the West side is back under water. East side is at least open for traffic. And just as soon as the water level goes back down to the Mississippi River. Have no fear Brian M & his crew will promptly have the park cleaned up once again from anything left in the grass, from sticks to garbage...Making it pretty once again, just like he always does🥰
Years ago it was a place that Grandpas brought their grandkids down and taught them to fish. There is no other usable bankside fishing spots. The City decided that only one tiny section at the end of it is where fishing is allowed now. That section is also a boat ramp. So people are putting their boats in the water in the middle of you fishing there. Right now it has been flooded all spring. The city caters to drumming up business, not a family atmosphere. In the summer the entire park is a parking spot for vehicles and boat trailers. It is a pretty view with a couple shelter houses and a place to exercise walk and take your dog, but other than that, it is a parking lot or a place for driving through to look at the river. No families in lawn chairs teaching their little ones to cast. No old timers sipping their coffee and getting together to fish with their friends and give advice on what works best and where to get your bait. They paved paradise and put up a parking lot.
