Exciting June Events & Live Music at The Cottonwood Cove

The Cottonwood Cove in Blair is a very popular vacation destination in the Midwest . Our incredible RV campground and marina on the Missouri River is a big reason for that, and the food and drinks from our Lodge keep people coming back again and again as well.  One more thing that makes The Cottonwood Cove a favorite spot is the wide variety of incredible annual events and amazing live music we feature each season.
