Not far from Dubuque and Maquoketa

We stayed there during the week and it seemed pretty quiet. The shower facilities weren't bad but they have sulfites in the water so it stinks a little. Fishing seemed popular in catfish creek about 50 feet away from our sight. There is a sign that states firewood is for sale at 6pm but the ranger…

Long Gravel Ride

Stayed just overnight and enjoyed the dam at sunset. Stayed here the weekend before the Derecho damaged so many of the trees. Would love to go back

Nice Quiet Park

This is a great park for those who like peaceful camping. Quite a few pull through sites. Owners are super friendly and helpful. No wifi but firewood is very reasonable on the honor system. 10 pieces for $5.00. Checks or cash only.

Basic, full hookup CG.

Relatively wide open, sites adjacent to one another. Utilities all worked fine, decently maintained. Non-camper traffic is annoying (event center inside CG), lots of people well above ppsted 10 mph limit. Recommend getting site well away from any of the entrances or roads that lead to event center.

Very convenient for visiting the Amana Colonies.

We tent camped here for two nights so we could visit the Amana Colonies. This is an RV park with tent sites on the lawn around the perimeter. A bit of a walk to the bathroom and showers, but the sites were level with short grass. The bathrooms and showers were very clean, and everyone was…

Great Place to Stay

Very nice campground at reasonable price. Water/Elec was $18 dollars night. We stayed just after Labor Day and we were one of 6 trailers in the entire park. The showers and restrooms are what you might expect for an unattended camp ground. We did see a sign in front of a trailer that said camp…

Blanding Landing, USACE (Corps of Engineers) Campground

Quiet, relaxing small campground with super clean hot showers and flush toilets in shower house. Boat ramp, dock fishing, tall trees all over. Shady sites, water pump faucets, dump station. Our first night here the many trains were loud and woke us up, but if you can laugh instead of being annoyed,…
