Lake Pepin is the largest River Lake
on the Mississippi River.

Lake Pepin Paddle Wheel
Port of Lake City

“Pearl of the Lake” is a modern day replica of the grand riverboats that traveled on the Mississippi River in the 1800’s.
True to tradition, her only means of propulsion is the twin paddlewheels in the stern.
Her name emphasizes the historic significance shared by paddlewheel boats and the freshwater pearl industry on the upper Mississippi River.
The mussels that produce fresh water pearls are very sensitive to pollution and an important indicator of water clarity.
It is our mission to help educate people about the history and environmental factors that impact our great River.
