“I'll be back”

Reviewed May 15, 2019

Overall Rating

Very nice older campground with lots of trails and views nearby. Campground host was present recommending sites and providing info. Biggest negative for me was that some of the electrical connections are on the wrong side, but my site was spacious enough to angle towards the post to connect, while still remaining level. Excellent va... more

“Older park and campground, awesome overlooks of the Mississippi River”

Reviewed Oct 27, 2018

Overall Rating

Camped 10/9/18 & 10/10/18 (Tue & Wed). This is a popular park, even in Fall due to fall colors, and I was glad we made reservations in advance. Rates are less Oct-Apr ($11 elec, $6 non-elec); more in peak May-Sept ($16 elec, $11 non-elec). We arrived expecting an entrance fee booth as is usual with state parks. There was none. Bei... more

“Great little state park”

Reviewed Oct 12, 2018

Overall Rating

Great little state park to visit, lots of walking trails around and nice views. Towns and other activities close by, but it was easy for us to spend 4 days here. Sites not super far apart, no water\sewer at sites, only electric. Shower\toilet block fine, but wasn't heated when we were there - we have our own shower, but it was chil... more

“Great for views”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2017

Overall Rating

This park sits atop the bluff named Pikes Peak. The picnic grounds are well groomed and the sights from the overlook are superior. You stand above the confluence of the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers. Many trails lead to other overlooks and a substantial group of Indian mounds. Trails on steep slopes near the primary overlook are... more

“Small state park campground ”

Reviewed May 22, 2017

Overall Rating

Passing through Iowa we needed a place to stay for a couple of nights. Each site has electricity, picnic table and fire pit. Sites are pretty close together. Sites are pretty level side to side but will need some leveling front to back. There is a dump and fresh water in the campground. Lots of trees in this campground. Would... more

“Great hiking and gorgeous overlooks”

Reviewed May 22, 2016

Overall Rating

If it weren't for the hiking trails, this campground would be a solid three stars. As noted in the other review, the sites are very, very close together (like RV park close) and while there's lots of shade, there's no privacy. Luckily, with the exception of the typically busy Friday and Saturday, this place was mostly pretty empty and ... more

“Great Iowa find on the Mississippi ”

Reviewed Mar 28, 2015

Overall Rating

Date of stay: July 2014 As I drove from the west to the east across northern Iowa I was beginning to wonder if there was anything more to the state than corn and soybean fields. The answer is yes! The northeast corner of the state has hills and is fairly nice (for Iowa). Pikes Peak State Park was a pleasant surprise. Located on b... more

No, not that Pike’s Peak.  This state park is in Iowa across the Mississippi River from Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.  It is located on a high point in Iowa, but not exactly a 14,0000 foot mountain. ...
