You give up some amenities here for the view and seclusion. Great 'little' campground with some spots available for reservation. Limited pull through's. On holiday weekends would highly recommend reserving spot on line. This is an AT&T dead zone, sometimes not even voice available in the park. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Over all experience here was good. Our rig is 36 foot and there are limited sites for larger rigs hard sand and rock pads. Heavy canopy of trees be careful of low branches. Excellent bluff views that you can walk to over looking the Mississippi and Wisconsin Rivers. Several effigy mounds can be accessed by hiking trails close by. Good electric, only one dump station and potable water at dump. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful views over looking the Mississippi, but the gnats were more than abundant. The facilities were well cared for. It served our purpose. I just wish we could have enjoyed the outdoors more. Nice treed park. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Arriving on Sunday night of a 3 day weekend, we were surprised to find an open spot.  The tree-shaded sites are gravel with an additional leveled area for chairs and the picnic table.  Our site 59 was almost level side to side but was not level front to back, which is to a concern to us.  We enjoyed the trail to the Mississippi River and to Bridal Veil Falls, which is more impressive when the weather is not drought-like.   The site 59 power was grounded properly, but the voltage was a bit under 110 volts.  At 108 volts air conditioners can have major troubles.  We were much more comfortable about 9 AM when the temperature outside cooled.  We will need to check the power before we stay again. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

The Park is located on the bluffs overlooking the river. Although the views are spectacular from the park over the Mississippi River, the views from the campsites are of the woods or your neighbor. Rates are reasonable and campground not crowded when we arrived on a Thursday in September. But we encountered a line of 4 other RVs waiting to fill water tanks from the only water spigot. The main concern was how tightly the sites were situated: most very close to your neighbor, especially for a state park. Then the weekenders arrived at 8:00 pm on Friday creating a commotion right outside our unit till well past 11 pm quiet hours. Another annoyance was that the park requires you to reserve both Fri & Sat nights on weekends even if you want only one night. Won't stay here again. Will check out the State Park in Wisconsin south of Prairie du Chien instead. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful location on top of bluffs. Maneuvering around the park is a chore. Sites are very close together, so you see your neighbor as soon as you walk out of your RV. Reports from friends we were with that the showers were cool water only and the shower house was not heated either. We'd stay again, but only in certain spots We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

This state park is located high on a bluff above the Mississippi River. It appears to be a very popular location as was evidenced by the many campers visiting on a late October weekend, even though water had been turned off for the season. Since this is a small park, I’d suggest reservations for visits during the summer camping season. Apparently the park management has heeded comments about access made by previous reviewers as most of the sites were accessible to a moderate (35’) size motorhome. There are a number of walking trails in the park, several of which provide spectacular vistas of the river valley below. Several TV stations are available over the air and I experienced a good Verizon broadband signal. This is a convenient base for exploring northeastern Iowa and the adjacent Wisconsin area. The nightly cost shown reflects the off-season rate. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a delightful State Park near Effigy Monument Park. You can walk about three blocks to an overview of the River and Wisconsin on the other side. The Park was not crowded during the weekday but they accept reservations and those sites able to be reserved were all booked for the week-end. We stopped in the little town of McGregor and walked through the shops. This is an area where you can stay for several days and enjoy every minute. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice state park, but the campground sites are very rough. It is difficult, but not impossible, for a motorhome (40 ft or shorter) to get into some sites. The campground is heavily treed so don't count on satellite TV. There is a lot of hiking in the park and great views of the Mississippi River. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Motorhome.

A very nice state park. The sites are wide however some would be hard to get into with a big rig. It was hard to get into the site I had. I would camp there again. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very beautiful park to camp at in October. The falls colors are everywhere up and down the Mississippi. Large rigs may have trouble with overhanging limbs and getting into most sites. We stayed three nights and had a great time in the area. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

We went out of our way to camp in this park again. The view alone is worth stopping. Don't forget, there is no water hookup, but there is a very nice clean shower area. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.

Excellent campground. Very nice state park with great overlooks and hiking trails. There are even some mountain biking trails. Lots to see and do in Marquette, Mc Gregor and Prairie du Chien. The campground was very clean and well laid out. The restrooms & showers were incredibly clean and well maintained. The only things keeping me from awarding a "10" were: 1-The warm water showers, which may be okay in summer, were a bit cold on this cool spring week end; and 2-The campground host were not yet in residence, and no one at the concession stand seemed to know how we could buy a bundle of wood. But all in all, we had a great weekend of hiking/sight seeing, survived the cold shower and eventually flagged down a park ranger who was able to direct us on who to see about buying the firewood. This is a very nice area to see. A great clean and quiet campground. We camped at Pikes Peak State Park in a Travel Trailer.
