This ACOE campground is located on the south side of the Mississippi River a few miles off Interstate 80.
There are 56 campsites in 2 loops. The north loop does not have any river views. Many of the sites in the south loop do view the river. We recommend sites 8, 9, 11, 12, and 13 for the best views.
There is a check in station, a dump station, a modern bathhouse, a playground, an amphitheater, and benches to sit and watch the river. All facilities are maintained to the high Army Core of Engineers standards.
We enjoyed biking the nearby Great River Bike Trail.
We would have given this campground 5 stars, but removed one due to noise. There is a lot of noise from the nearby lock and dam of the river, the road, and two rail lines. While there are only a few trains a day right by the campground, you can hear trains along the other side of the river. These didn't bother us at all, but we wanted to warn others.
