1 Park near Camanche, Iowa
Jul 2015 - $19.00
A great campground right on the river, with a lot of things to do. Great fishing, has boat slips (docks?) if you have a boat (I do not), and you can rent boats or paddle boats. Right next to the Eco Tourism center, which has lots of neat things going on.
Avoid when raining, as the entire campground turns into a big mud puddle. Also can be very buggy. - David Johnson

We had a pretty decent stay. My only complaint was the cold water in the shower. Taking a shower on a 45* morning and only having lukewarm water was not pleasant. - User781

This is a county park. It is on a backwater of the Mississippi River. It is a marina in addition to being a campground. The marina business was very busy during our stay. We stayed in site #65 right on the water. Due to the slow-moving water, there were lots of mosquitoes, so staying outside was a challenge. We wanted to stay in a place right on the Mississippi and we couldn't tell about this place looking at the map. Sites are electric only. There are lots of trees so maneuvering a big rig would be problematic. Bargain price. The showers are a long hike from many of the campsites so we didn't try them. There are pit toilets scattered around and we didn't try them either. In the future, we'd plan a little better and choose another campground. It seemed like mostly locals were staying there. - NancyB
