$8 for walk in sites, $16 for 20,30,50 electrical hookups. Potable water for your tank, spigots here and there, dump, nice fire rings, tables, firewood available for donation. Showers and bathroom acceptable.
Enough hiking for a couple of days in woods and on prairie.
All sites except #1 by reservation.
Sites are large, level, mostly shady, well thought out.

“Great location for hikers needing electric and cell service”

Overall Rating

Great, small (>30 sites), quiet, and clean state park campground. Site 21 is almost fully shaded for most of the day. Verizon cell service was usable for working, but I don't have to do a lot of video chats, just audio - speed test says internet was slow but it worked for me 2.36 mbps download/2.21 mbps upload. ATT worked on my phone and iPad for posting on Instagram and such, facetime, and texting but couldn't get it to work as a hot spot to do a speed test. Only electric hookups but potable water spigots throughout the campground and dump station and water fill station at the front. Shower house had 3 shower stalls - 1 being ADA accessible. Sinks deep enough for dishes. Firewood available for donations. Bottle and can recycle bin and trash dumpster by shower house. Self-checkin for reservations and register for open sites at the kiosk as you enter the campground. I'm not sure if that's normal procedure or a covid thing. Hiking trails easily accessible without having to drive. The hiking trails are not well marked and the caves were closed (covid). Also an easy drive to the town of Dubuque.
