10 Reviews of Pulpit Rock City Campground
Nothing crazy special, well kept sites

I was there on a Monday and was the only tent around. Site 15 is the best for tent sites, it’s right at the delta of where two streams meet. It’s a quick bike ride to pulpit rock brewing and other parks.


Very nice, clean campground with a lot of amenities. Tent camping on the river was neat, but tents were very close together due to the small sites

Decorah’s Best

As Luther College alumni, hubby and I have been coming here for years. The location is perfect, scenic and with lots of recreational opportunities close by…hiking, biking, fishing, canoeing, etc. Grounds and facilities are clean and well maintained. Truly an idyllic spot.


My boyfriend and I stayed right on the river with our pups (pet friendly) and it was BEAUTIFUL. Easy access to restrooms but secluded and quiet too.

Fantastic Campground

the entire area was exceptionally clean. the location is perfect for biking, hiking, running, skiing, and all around exploring. the campground is very well laid out and easy to hookup to all of the amenities.

Easy access and tranquil

If you love being by water and waking up with the birds in he morning, this is the place to be. The grounds have accessible camping for everyone included rustic and electric and campers. It also offers nice bathroom and free shower facilities. If you camp rustic, like I did, you camp right next to he upper Iowa river but don't worry because it's not too loud that you won't be able to fall asleep. For those looking for a nice morning hike as well, Pulpit Rock is just across the street and is makes for a beautiful morning hike. I highly recommend watching the sunrise with a cup of camp coffee there.

Something for everyone

City campground run by great staff. “Scott” was very responsive and helpful. Managed to get our group together on a busy weekend. Sites can accommodate large coaches, pull behind trailers or tents. Clean bathrooms/showers. Bring your bikes! A quick bike to town to enjoy breweries, restaurants, ice cream and shops. Hike - bike or enjoy the river activities. You can rent kayaks or tubes just outside the gates of the park.

Great Campground

This campground is located right outside of scenic Decorah and has trails for hiking or biking. Easy access for kayakers and tubers and walking distance to great breweries.

Decorah is worth the trip! BEAUTIFUL

Decorah is so beautiful. The river is right beside the tent sites. Hiking trails close by. Caves and water falls only a short drive away. Tubing, canoeing, and kayaking services behind camp grounds. Super affordable site rates. Shower house. Picnic tables and fire pits at each site.

Camping besides the trout stream enjoying the walking trails, floating down the river and looking at nature. Life doesn't get any better.
