Located on the Mississippi River, Frontenac is a birdwatcher’s paradise. It’s one of the best spots in the country to view birds migrating in the spring and fall. More than 260 species of birds have been recorded here. No wonder: Lake Pepin’s diverse habitats — bluffland, prairie, floodplain forest and upland hardwood forest — attract numerous warblers, hawks, waterfowl and shorebirds. Hikers and skiers enjoy spectacular views of this beautifully wooded river valley. Fishing, swimming and boat tours are all available nearby.

Campground is open year-round in the park. In winter 5 sites are available for camping including 3 electric sites. Group camp will remain open until the first plowable snow of the season.
