This is a smaller COE campground. It seems like the campsites are close together, but once you get into your site, it isn't like that at all. Campground is laid out so that most of the sites have a view of the Mississippi and the barge traffic going up and down. The hosts are very friendly and maintain a very clean campground. They are always checking restrooms, water, etc. Boat launch is next door to the campground for those who want to go boating/fishing. AT&T cell phones and Verizon MiFi worked well. We could not pick up Dish TV because of the trees. We did pick up OTA TV, so that was good. A big caution here, check the location of your site carefully before reserving. There is one row of campsites that backs up to railroad tracks that are fairly busy, even at night. The train whistles interrupt your sleep for sure. We camped at Clark's Ferry COE in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed at Clark's Ferry on the banks of the Mississippi for 5 days in site 3. This is a great place to watch the barges and pleasure boats go by. Our site was paved and had a bit of shade. Besides the train tracks that are directly behind the campground with trains running 4 to 5 times night and day, the only other negative was that parking at some of the sites (ours included) was reversed so that entering and exiting your motor home or travel trailer and the patio area were on the opposite side from a view of the river. We solved this by pulling in rather than backing in but this would not be possible with a travel trailer/5th wheel. All in all, we enjoyed our stay and will return. We camped at Clark's Ferry COE in a Motorhome.

We ended up here for the 4th of July, and all the COE parks along the Mississippi were full. We were happy to get a site, but would not stay here again. The back-in site we had was less than 100 feet from the railroad, and because it was right by a crossing, the noise from the horn was really loud. I resorted to ear plugs. The COE parks on the river have 1 water faucet for 4-6 sites, and no hookup is allowed. We were precaution-ed to have full water tanks. Sites are nice and shady and the river view is stupendous, but I would try for Fairport or Shady Creek, COE parks with 10 miles to see if they are better. We camped at Clark's Ferry COE in a Motorhome.

We paid $8 (Golden Age Passport) for 50A electric site with no water or sewer hookups. We felt the sites were too close together compared to other Corps of Engineer parks we've stayed at. We're here for Memorial weekend and it's packed. Verizon air card works great for internet. We noticed a lot of unoccupied RVs already set up early, obviously by locals. Allowing this is poor management. The train noise is very loud and there are no walking trails, which we miss. We camped at Clark's Ferry COE in a Motorhome.

National Parks Pass cuts the rate by 1/2. It is next to a railroad track, but the night we were here they stopped running by 10 PM. Other than camping and fishing, there's not much else to do. Town has no restaurants, and the hills and roads are not conducive to biking. It is also rather difficult to find. It will be very busy on the summer weekends however. We camped at Clark's Ferry COE in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is clean, well cared for. Grassy sites with some landscaping trees and bushes around sites. Paved level site pads. Campground is between railroad and river. Train passes about once per hour during day, less frequent at night. Sites moderately close to neighboring sites. Campground quiet at evening. A few miles from interstate. Host was friendly & helpful. We camped at Clark's Ferry COE in a Fifth Wheel.
