“A real gem along the Mississippi River near the Quad cities”

Reviewed Sep 02, 2015

Overall Rating

The state of Iowa has done a wonderful job with building COE parks all along the Mississippi. We passed two other smaller COE parks on the way to ours. Shady Creek is a FHU park with long concrete site with a gravel patio area that holds a picnic table and a fire pit. Sites are shaded with mature trees but we were able to get an opening for our roof top dish. This park includes a boat launch, large playground, and various fields. The bathhouse was very well maintained. The park is very quiet except for the train which is rather close. This park has the sites the furthest distance from the tracks which run along the river. All of the parks are located between the water and the tracks. The trains weren't that often and didn't bother us at all. Our price reflects a 50% Senior National Park discount. We would stay here again.
