County park. 10 miles out from Dubuque. Great spaces, great little park. Spent two nights here. Weekends are busy and mostly full. Weekdays, deserted. Water and electric. Hilly access roads, in either direction from park. Well patrolled by DNR. Explored Dubuque and Galena, Il. From here. Major box stores in Dubuque. AT&T and Verizon service better than most, but not very fast. We camped at Swiss Valley Park in a Fifth Wheel.

I don't often award a 10 rating to a park but this one is a beauty. This Dubuque County campground has everything we need. We even extended our stay to cover a weekend in one of their non-reservable sites. If you plan to stay over a weekend or holiday, be advised that this park fills up, so make reservations. The water and 30 amp services we had were as expected. There are no sewer hookups but there is a dump station in the park. We will stay here again in the future. We camped at Swiss Valley Park in a Motorhome.

The sites were nice and the entire park was clean. The only issue we had was the lack of a camp store (it was closed) and camp staff. We camped at Swiss Valley Park in a Travel Trailer.

Weekends in the summer are packed but the campground clears out by Monday. Nice facility with wide open sites. There is now a row for 50 amps. It's on the far right side of the entrance. The rest of the sites are 30 amp. Showers and restrooms need more attention. No sewer but dump station is accessible for a big rig willing to make a few cuts. We will camp here again.

Nice county campground located about 8 miles from downtown Dubuque and only 3 miles from major roads. Half of the sites are large enough for big rigs. Dump station is too tight for 40 plus foot coaches, however it works fine by backing in. This was not a problem as we were the only campers in the park. It might be an issue in the middle of summer. Beautiful park and grounds in a scenic country location. On-site ranger. For larger rigs we would recommend camping on the left side of the entrance as the sites seem to be bigger. We will stay here again. We camped at Swiss Valley Park in a Motorhome.

This park was devastated by flooding in the Spring of 2011. Only 10 sites were usable when we stayed there. Though their web site stated they were closed, we called and they assured us a site. They should be ready to go almost full steam in 2012. A narrow twisty road to get to park but ti is OK. Some sites were pretty short for a "big rig". Dump site was somewhat difficult to get to. Be sure to dump prior to hooking up to dingy. We stayed 2 nights while biking the Heritage Nature Trail (cinder/crushed rock Rails-to-Trails) located Dyersville to Dubuque, 5 miles away. The Heritage Trail suffered severe flood damage also. Don't try biking on "road" tires. There is small county nature center near park. We camped at Swiss Valley Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice county park about 5 miles outside of Dubuque. Sites are all level with a gravel parking pad. Space between site is 15' to 20'. Adjacent county park has large playground and activity fields. Stocked trout stream runs through property. No TV reception. No camp store - nearest stores is about 1.5 miles away. We stayed here in the off-season and water at the site was off but there were a few freeze proof hydrants that were reachable with 50' to 100' of hose. Dump station open year round. Shower house closed in the winter. We camped at Swiss Valley Park in a Motorhome.
