ยป MAP

Sabula, known as the Island City, has a unique setting and is one mile long and .25 miles wide. It is completely surrounded by water, with lakes on the west side and the Mississippi river on the other sides. The 576 residents are part of river town that has upgraded itself and is growing with commercial and light industry interests.

Tourism is a big draw for the community. A bridge brings traffic from Illinois to the city. The Jackson County Welcome Center is located just west of the "island city" on Hwy. 64.

Sabula is a sportsman's paradise. At the south edge of the island we find South Sabula Lakes Park with camping facilities and boat marina. For relaxation, nothing is better than sitting on the shore of the Mississippi watching Big River roll by. Seven miles north of Sabula is the Green Island State Wildlife Refuge; a 3400 acre wetland popular with fishermen and hunters.
