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.
