“Nice campground on the bank of the Mississippi River”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2017

Overall Rating

Reserved and camped in Site 9, with full hookups. Arrival was easy, though the sites are numbered a bit confusingly. We started backing into site #8 by mistake until the host gave a an encouraging shout, causing us to pull forward and then back into the correct site. Be sure to read up on the sad history of this location and how it ... more

Beautiful wooded camp ground with no one there except for the hosts. Chose end campground near reservoir. Woman at nearby gas station said not to go in the water as she caught a skin bacteria a few months ago. My dog went in and hasnt had any problems. The hosts were sweet. Lots of coyotes circling at night. Could hear cars every now a... more

“Pretty”

Reviewed Apr 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Nice park, located on the banks of the Mississippi...Only about 20 or so sites at the riverfront location. Those nearest the tracks have sewer hook ups. There is a dump station. It's a long drive back to the river from the entrance. Make sure they have a site. We were there the last week of March. It was full the first weekend of Apri... more

“Watch the barges go down the Mississippi River from your river front site”

Reviewed May 25, 2015

Overall Rating

We camped here in October, 2014 in a 35 foot fifth wheel. The rate shown is for a riverfront site with full hookups. Our site was a full hookup back in site with a paved pad, picnic table, fire ring and lantern hook. Behind our site was a grassy area between us and the Mississippi River. We enjoyed watching barges going up and down ... more

“Would stay again in a heartbeat! Great river views looking across the Mighty Miss. River”

Reviewed Feb 04, 2015

Overall Rating

It's been a number of years, but remember it as a good place to stop. Semi primitive, remote, just what the doctor ordered by our way of thinking. Plenty of trees, mostly local visitors to give it flavor and of course a RR tracks to make one feel like a "travel'n person"

“Beautiful campsite right on the Mississippi with lots of activities. ”

Reviewed Aug 04, 2014

Overall Rating

There are two parts to this park -- and both have RV spots, but we chose the Mississippi Campground Loop because its right on the river. It also happens to be right on a railroad track, but honestly, it didn't bother us -- there were a handful of trains during the day, but they stopped at night when we were there. The park is really we... more
