"I'll be back"

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... Read more

"Quiet weeknight"

I stayed here during the first week of May. The biggest negative was that check-in was quite confusing. The check-in kiosk implies that the campground is first-come, first-serve, but the campground takes reservations, and every site had some... Read more

Pikes Peak State Park

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. ...
