  • Rare Mississippi River management area offers isolated experience for explorers at heart

HELENA —  A trip to Buck Island Wildlife Management Area may take a little extra effort, but it offers an unspoiled view of the Mississippi River few have the pleasure of experiencing. The 1,510-acre island in the Mississippi River just north of Helena River Park is accessible only by boat and is an excellent point for advanced paddlers to begin the journey to Freddie Black Choctaw Island WMA 106 river miles south along the Lower Mississippi River Water Trail.
