We stopped here for a 2 night stay. Just know that there are pros and cons about staying at this city run park. The train does not have a set schedule, and the train tracks are right behind the RV spaces, and it is loud. The greenery at the sites are weeds, not grass, and while we were there they needed to be cut. Most of the sites are narrow, all are back in sites facing the river. Our slides were about 2 feet from the site to our left, but the site to our right was much larger. We were in site #11, we had no fire ring or grill, which was not an issue, but the picnic table needed attention. In general, the park would benefit from some very basic maintenance and care. Having the Mississippi River at your door was great. We enjoyed watching the huge barges traveling the river through the locks. Even though it's not the season for bald eagles, we saw 3 eagles, 2 landed in the water scooping up fish right in front our motorhome, and the other one was flying over the large pylon that is at the water's edge. There is a County Market grocery store on 61 about 5-7 miles away. We would stay here again, even with the train noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This park is right next to the Mississippi River in front of you and right behind you there is a railroad tracks. There is a ferry just south of the park that goes across to Illinois throughout the day. The train went through 3 times while we were there (about 12 hours). It is very loud and very close. Other than the train the park is very quiet, we had read that the tracks were there so it was not a surprise to us. There is no regular set schedule as to when a barge will be coming up to go through the lock and dam so it is just luck as to when they come through when you are there. They could be lined up waiting to get through or it could be a few hours in between. Overall the park could use a good scrub down and for some black dirt brought in and seeded. Not much grass, but have a lot of weeds. We just put out our carpet and enjoyed sitting by the river. If you are going here they have an address of 700 North Front Street, Canton. Very easy to find and it is off route 16 off of U.S. 61, east of 61. We would stay here again when passing through. It is worth the stop to see the lock and dam, it is a very laid back and quiet place. It is all self registration when you get there. Have cash or check for $18 per night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.

The pads are concrete, level, and are within 30 ft (10 m) of the Mississippi River, just below Lock and Dam 20. The barge tows pass within 40 ft (12 m) of the shoreline. This makes for a fascinating closeup view of the passing tows. The towboat engines do make a bit of noise, but not enough that our sleep was disturbed even with the windows open. The trains running by less than 100 ft (30 m) behind the pads were much louder and did disturb our sleep, though fortunately, it was typically multiple hours between trains. The kids enjoyed the playground. Everyone enjoyed watching the barge tows going by, and the price was very nice. We were pleased at the effort the city put into cleaning and clearing the park so soon after the river flood water had the park submerged. If the river stage is above 16 feet it would be a good idea to check if the park is open. Current and forecast river level is available at: http://water.weather.gov/ahps2/hydrograph.php?wfo=lsx&gage=canm7 We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
