About this Area

Total Acres

Red Rock Landing Conservation Area is on the Mississippi River in Perry County, approximtely 10 miles east of Perryville. To reach the area from Perryville, take Highway 61 south to Route P, follow Route P to its junction with Route C at Crosstown, turn left and turn onto County Road 350. Follow County Road 350 to the conservation area.

This area consists of 554 acres and includes approximately one mile of Mississippi River frontage and one-half-mile of Cinque Hommes Creek frontage.

The area contains seven ponds, totaling about five acres. The area has 419 acres of timber, 60 acres of unprotected bottomland fields, and 70 acres of upland fields.

The Conservation Department purchased this property in November 1994 primarily for use as a public fishing access. The area has some of the best remaining riparian habitat in this reach of the Mississippi River. The frontage has good water depth and instream cover that provides excellent bank fishing for catfish, and other big river species.

The area forest is managed to improve tree growth, quality, and species composition.

Other management strategies on the area include wildlife food plots and native warm-season grass plantings.

Red Rock Landing Conservation Area is inaccessible by road when the Mississippi River level is over 20 feet on the Chester Power gauge.
