Had a great time here. Had a problem with the 30A power. It would trip the breaker at the strangest times. I finally swapped with my neighbor and neither of us had any more problems. Camp host was excellent. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pleasant campground right on the Mississippi River. Our site (#36) was about 100 yards from the river bank, with a great view out our windshield. This early (April 10), water wasn't turned on yet. Easy back-in sites for big rigs. Sites were gravel, well-drained and level enough. Central dump station. Lots of trees, so satellite access might be a problem once they leaf out. Surprisingly, we had a good Verizon Broadband (EVDO) connection. Some site are reservable. A definite winner. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground, paved interior roads, slab sites. One clean shower house and one pit toilet at other end of CG. Plenty of trees for shade, sites are well separated. Very close to an active railroad track however after about 9PM I never heard a train. This park is very easy to find being located immediately off the main road and accurately located with the GPS. Nicely located on the banks of the Mississippi River with benches to sit on while watching barge traffic. No mosquito activity at this time, however, mouse activity was an issue...one got into my car and another ate a hole in the tonneau cover of my camper....But in spite of the mice, we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
Beautiful park right on the Mississippi river. All the sites appear to have great shade with good spacing between sites. Sites have power only with a common spigot to share with other sites, bring a long hose. We only spent the night but we would go back again. You can sit on the river bank and watch the barge traffic go by, very quite and impressive. Would give a 10 if it had a dump and water at every site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice location with very nice people running it, The restroom/shower room fan was broken and it was really hot but it was due to be fixed the next day and was not that much of a problem. River view was excellent. We camped here in a Tent.
Sites are $16 reservation, $18 walk ups only, half with Golden Age. The higher numbered sites on the big loop are a little more roomy. All are level and on slabs. There is very good Verizon broadband and cell, TV via batwing was mostly good. Muscatine is a nice little town and the Pearl is a good happy hour option down near the river. Walmart is on US-61. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Like all COE parks, the sites are very spacious and level. There are water spigots strategically placed all over so you can usually refill your water with 50-75' of hose. The view of the Mississippi is excellent and there are benches provided so you may linger and watch. Twin dump stations on the way out minimize waits. Hosts were friendly and efficient. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a really pretty and quiet park. The lack of water and sewer hookups at the sites is a minor drawback. Water is available close by and they do have a dump station. The sites are widely spaced with concrete parking pads and gravel for the table and fire pit areas. There are nature trails for hiking. Park personnel are very friendly and eager to help. Golden Age Passport makes this a very inexpensive stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a quiet park located right on the Mississippi River. You are ~10 miles from town, and it is quite peaceful. Hosts are very friendly and helpful. Paid boat launch on site. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Wonderful spot to stay beside the Mississippi River and watch the barge traffic. Sites have 75' x 12' level concrete pads complete with gravel area beside for table, fire ring and tent use. Facilities were clean and the hosts were very informative. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a great park in the fall watching the Mississippi river and the colors change. It is a busy park and has a train that passes a few times during the day. The sites are great with plenty of room and easy to get into. The river sites are first come first serve. We stay here often to enjoy the river. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Shady Creek is a Corps of Engineers campground on the Mississippi near the city of Davenport, Iowa. It has boat access to the river and a large, grassy play area for the kids. In addition, it has several pieces of clean and well maintained playground equipment. At least one large shelter house is available as well, complete with picnic tables and a wonderful view of the river. Nearly all sites have a river view. Water is available near several of the sites, and can be reached with a 100 foot hose. There are two dump stations near the exit. We try to return there at least a couple of times each summer. Quite and well patrolled by Park Rangers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
