Pelican Point State Recreation Area

Area 36 acres. Consists of riverine wooded habitats. State park entry permit required. This area includes a small, peaceful, primitive campground and access to the Missouri River. The campground and surrounding area is dominated by large cottonwoods with some shrubby understory. This is a good place to see migratory and breeding bird species including warblers, vireos, thrushes, orioles, flycatchers, woodpeckers and other passerines as well as larger birds that tend to follow the river during migration.
