This was our first stay at an Army Corp of Engineers' campground and we were delighted! The campground host, Vicky, and her husband were super friendly and helpful.
The grounds are so nice and there really isn't a bad spot. Many, including ours (#5), had a lovely view of the Mississippi river. The campground is situated on the river with easy access to a beautiful bike trail, which we used.
The site had a level cement pad. There is electric at the site and some have a nearby water spigot. There's a nice dump station on the way out. We didn't use the bathrooms or showers, but I did look in the building and it appeared well maintained. We got great phone reception. - Ree Klein

Over night stop with just electric. Level blacktop site, clean restrooms, dump station on the way out. Nice view of the Mississippi river. Price reflects senior pass. Would come back again. - norootsnow

Great place to stay right on the Mississippi. Beware of the mayflies. At certain times of the year they can make your campsite a mess. This is a great location close to the Quad Cities but very quiet.
The restrooms and showers are clean and the campground itself has always been neat and mowed. There are two loops to the campground. One has views of the Mississippi River and the other loop is surrounded bu trees. Either one has lots of shade trees.
We have camped there 8 times and continue to go back. - GLL

Wonderful, well kept campground on Mississippi River. Sites are a bit small, but it wasn't crowded so every other site left plenty of space. This time of year it is heavy with fish flies; be ready to have a campfire to keep them away. Very nice bike path runs through the campground which you can ride for 10 to 20 miles in either direction. Nice location, we would stay here again for a weekend. - lc47

Great county run park. A wonderful view of the Mississippi River and not far from towns for shopping/eating. Sites are spacious and level, gravel. Great value! Would return here if in the area. - Highway Star

Technically, I should probably give this a little lower rating - because of no sewer hook-up and unlevel sites - but it was one of our favorite stops, so...! We extended our stay and were loathe to leave. It's a very pretty park, right along the MS River, with nice 50 amp sites for an unbelievably low price!! There's also a nice bike trail that runs right through the park and alongside the river. We got a little confused getting here - turns out there's an exit off the I-80 (Exit #1) onto Route 84 that takes you straight to the park! Somehow our GPS had other ideas... Also, it's not obvious where to go when you first get here. The campground is on the river side (there is more of the park across the road for picnicking, etc.). Just go "straight" on the main road till you get to the office (a ways in). If no one is there, just pick out your spot and pay them when they get back. We would definitely stay here again if in the area! - CarrieBearie
