“Great CoE Campground”

Reviewed Sep 11, 2018

It's basically a place for all the weekend warriors to go to show off their $80,000 campers that they will owe on well past their retirement. The entertainment was good though, watching them try to back these monstrous campers i... more

We were in town for the University of Iowa vs Penn State University football game and used the West Overlook campsite as our base camp for the weekend's activities. We stayed in Wes... more

Has several loops. Gravel and paved pads. Good showers. Boat ramp. All network channels picked up. We would pick one of the other campgrounds on the lake as this was was very family orientated. Kids everywhere. Lots of traffic.
