I have camped at this campground for 7-8 years and have never had a problem with hosts. Great people if you don't disobey the rules and mind your own business. 42 gravel sites, some pull thrus. 30 and 50 amp sites, reservations welcome. Sewer, electric, water and cable for very reasonable rates. Permanent sites available. River for fishing and watching wildlife and close to Walmart, DairyQueen and Fareway. Clean restrooms and a playground for kids. Pet friendly. Senior discount. Daily, weekly and monthly rates. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The hosts are unfriendly and scream at people! They have no idea how to work with the public. A lot of tension in this park!! There's a tree that needs to be taken down. It is very unsafe! They put big campers in small spaces and visa versa. Most picnic tables are in poor shape and hard to move. Sewer connections are fine. Will never camp here again unless they get new camp hosts!

This is a city owned park, with over 75% seasonal spots. This makes it hard for people just to come and camp for the weekend. No fire wood is offered so you have purchase from local vendors. My biggest complaint is with the electrical, I plugged into 50amp service and my meter was reading 108 at best. For this reason I plan on staying away from this park. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are flat, gravel pads with large grassy areas in between. This campground sits right on the main road so it is very easy to find, however the noise from this road can be heard all night long. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Overall Rating:

Park manager was pleasant to deal with as a plus. That said, this is a dirt road, dirt sites, dry grass, run down kind of RV park. Lots of dog waste, mostly dried, was all over the dry grass area along side of our site. During our stay, the park was at least 75% filled with long term tenants who were working in the area. Regret to say that many of the reviews are favorably exaggerated, or the reviewers' standards are a bit too low. Trucks and cars were parked out into the rather narrow access roads to the extent that we had to back out of our pull-through on the south side of the shower building. We will not return and will instead drive a few miles further and dry camp at the casino. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Motorhome.

Rate is $15.50 for seniors. We paid $80.00 for the week as seniors. Camp host was very gracious. Shower and restroom clean. Short walk to the river. A few swings for kids. A nice community covered area. Some traffic noise but not noticeable with a/c on. I would stay here again. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a great overnight stop. Very quiet. Very clean. We were here in 45 ft RV plus second vehicle, and did not have to unhook. Good maneuvering. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a city park located on the south side of Independence Iowa. The sites are level and long enough for a large unit. However too short to handle my 35' fifthwheel and the truck. They do provide parking for tow vehicles however. Cable is included with the $15 per night fee. Will stay there again. We camped at Independence RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.
