County park with electricity on the backwaters of the Mississippi. Wooded and be aware very buggy due to location. Nice little park for kids. Before going make sure it's not flooded. We camped at Rock Creek Marina & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Rock Creek Marina & Campground is a county (Clinton IA) park so one should not expect the amenities of a private RV resort. I did not expect cable TV or wi-fi, and did not get them. I knew the sites were electric only, but it was 50 amp with strong voltage. Checking in was an adventure. The person in the office wanted to charge us $100 for our four night stay, that we had already paid. There is no campground map or person to guide you to your site, just some vague directions. We did find it okay. There had been quite a bit of rain prior to our stay and the area was very muddy. The areas around the sites are very wooded and you are next to a slough. This is prime mosquito breeding grounds, and they were everywhere all the time. We were in one of the few pull-through sites and they were quite large and the pad was long. Most of the other sites are back-in or tent sites. They do have a few cabins on stilts. The pads and interior roads are gravel, but being so close the river, quite level. If you are a boater, this would be a good campground. They have a boat launch and several slips to dock your boat. The week following our stay, the Mississippi was expected to rise four feet. If it does the whole campground will be under water. When we left, one area was closed as the access road was already under water. I hope I have the chance to return here in drier conditions. It is a scenic area. The park is also home to the Mississippi River Eco Tourism Center, worth seeing. We camped at Rock Creek Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Le Clair is just down the road (15 miles or so) and is a beehive of activity on weekends. The Mississippi River is the main attraction in this area. US67 runs along the river and very popular with bikers.

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. We camped at Rock Creek Marina & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

Scope out the spots first. The sites do not have water, though there are spigots spaced out every so often. A couple of spots have one close enough to run a hose to. We ended up sharing with the two adjacent sites and it worked quite well. Avoid pulling in at night if you have a large camper, it makes parking very difficult.

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. We camped at Rock Creek Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

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. We camped at Rock Creek Marina & Campground in a Motorhome.
