Well maintained State CG

CG site atop river bluff with pads, fire rings, tables, RR, recycling, trails, shelters nearby. Sites are close to each other but plenty to do.

Quiet, clean, comfortable

Car camping in my Prius and wanted to stay in a non electric (ie tent) space for $12 but all the tent spaces didn’t seem to have anywhere flat to park. From what I could see, most of the nonelectric/tent were down at the bottom of slopes. Ended up paying the $18 and staying in a nice electric spot (didn’t use the electric though). Flat, gravel, shaded. I was right at the end (spot 27) and butted up against a prairie. Super lovely. Really quiet campsite. Most are RVs and they largely park on the other side of the loops. Mostly older folks. There’s not a lot of trails on the campsite side (Dyas unit) of Bellevue but they were lovely and secluded and nice to get grounded. Bathrooms are clean and nice. The soap smells really good! They have showers which were clean. I thought they’d be cold water showers but they were warm! Such a delight.

Wanted to stay near-ish to the Mississippi. While this campground does not have views of the river, a 5 min walk had great overlooking views.

Decent. Not the best tent sites.

Stayed there recently for Memorial Day weekend. The site we had was fairly steep as far as tent sites go. The site our friends had next to us was uninhabitable due to mud and sloping but the rangers let them switch sites no problem. It was rainy so we didn't get to enjoy the trails but we were told they were decent.
