Jun 2015 - $10.00
This campground has plenty of shade and the sites are long and wide. We enjoyed watching the barges and other river traffic right from the comfort of our campsite. Our Verizon hotspot worked well; our ATT phones did not. Our site had 50 amp service, no water or sewer. This was our second visit to the park and we are likely to return. - codgette

Nice campground, paved interior roads, slab sites. One clean shower house and one pit toilet at other end of CG. Plenty of trees for shade, sites are well separated. Very close to an active railroad track however after about 9PM I never heard a train. This park is very easy to find being located immediately off the main road and accurately located with the GPS. Nicely located on the banks of the Mississippi River with benches to sit on while watching barge traffic. No mosquito activity at this time, however, mouse activity was an issue...one got into my car and another ate a hole in the tonneau cover of my camper....But in spite of the mice, we would definitely stay here again. - mailman01

Beautiful park right on the Mississippi river. All the sites appear to have great shade with good spacing between sites. Sites have power only with a common spigot to share with other sites, bring a long hose. We only spent the night but we would go back again. You can sit on the river bank and watch the barge traffic go by, very quite and impressive. Would give a 10 if it had a dump and water at every site. - azal55

This was our northernmost stop on the Great River Road. We were actually looking for Shady Creek, and stopped at Fairport instead. What a gem of a campground! It's small, which we like, and right on the river. There's a small playground and clean bathhouse. Because of the geography and the turn of the river west, you get to see both the sunrise and the sunset over the river, and of course the barge traffic. We had no water at our site, but that was no problem as our tanks were full and we filled up our with drinking water at the spigots that were throughout the campground. Our site was level, roomy, easy backing in. We'd definitely go back if it weren't 1,000 miles from home! It was so quiet and relaxing, and we stayed 2 nights rejuvenating for our trip back home. - roydogs

We stayed here one night while traveling west from Chicago. Our iPhone GPS had a little trouble finding the place, but we got there. The river was pretty high and there was a little slight mud/fish smell, but not horrible - sort of expected along the river. Bath house was acceptably clean. A train rolled through the adjacent tracks in the middle of the night. We don't mind that. The gem of this place is that the next morning we drove to Wildcat Den State Park, just a few miles down the road. Beautiful rock formations, ridges, trails and just long enough to wake us up for a day driving west. No worries here. - User3490

Had a great time here. Had a problem with the 30A power. It would trip the breaker at the strangest times. I finally swapped with my neighbor and neither of us had any more problems. Camp host was excellent. - camprman

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. - Yeager

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. - stetwood

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. - nbi600

Great stopover east of Iowa City about 4 miles off of I-80. County park along the Cedar River. Very open with 30 amp service. Relaxing environment if you just want a campsite without any of the extras. $5 for no electric, $7.50 with electric. Can't beat those rates. Watch the river though if there is a significant amount of rain upstream. It can rise rapidly up to the campsite area. - Texas Mooseport

We drove in after reading the Good Sam ratings...boy was that wrong! Made a loop and left. We did NOT stay here, the place just did not appear inviting. The cost of $1 was ONLY entered so that I could leave this review, we did NOT stay here.
We were drawn to this RV park by the Good Sam ratings, which were Facilities 9, Restrooms 9.5 and Appeal 9. It was near dark when we arrived at the location and the general appearance was not good. I would rate it at maybe a 5 or 6 for general appearance. Most of the campers appeared to be permanent and there was nobody outside or at the registration area (it was later when we arrived). We were tired and decided to try another park in the area. I will say that when we called earlier in the day to see if there was a site available, the person that I spoke to was very nice. - BuckeyeTravels

Needed an overnight near July 4th so we had slim pickings at reasonable rates. Location near Iowa City.
Dusty access road right next to I-80. Water hook-up not near my coach connection, so I did not hook up. 30 amp power OK. Dump at top of hill. Office staff OK. Would not stay here again. - john rv

The highway noise kept us from getting any sleep! The "overnighters" are put in rows literally within a stone's throw of the Interstate highway. We might as well have been parked in the median... We stayed here to have work done on our coach at HWH Industries (leveling jacks/slides); but, we will never stay here, again! - luckydog

Fine for a few days. When we were there the waterfront sites were closed as they were still drying out from a flood, but the other sites were fairly full since it was a Friday night. Although there were many groups, it still had a nice family atmosphere versus the "party central" atmosphere to us. Only one main restroom/shower building for the whole park, so it gets pretty gross as the day goes on. - Bay Area Early retirees

Has concrete pads, 50 amp at site, water nearby. You fill up with water then disconnect. Convenient dump on way out of CG. Train track on north edge but with ACs on didn't hear train noise. We were there during week days so no noise or crowds. We received $1 off per night for senior discount and did not stay on water. 14 day maximum stay. Great place to stay. - Peter K

When we pulled into the park on Sunday afternoon, we thought the campground was full with all the cars and boat trailers and people. The campground beyond the day-parking area had numerous open sites. Shortly after setting up camp the day users left the beach and all was peaceful! Watching the barges from our site right on the beach was interesting as night fell. The concert pads, and wide sites were a pleasant surprise. Scott County Parks have created a wonderful place to camp and we will be back! - AluminumCloud

This is a very well kept older former KOA. Sites are not terribly close together. Sites are a little unlevel because the land is hilly. Water pressure is low but other utilities are good. There is a nice pet area and playground. There is also a pool. Normal price is $35 and they take GS. However they lowered the price to $27 for the fall. Next door is a BP station with diesel truck pumps. Great bonus! - The Griffins

Stayed 2 nights waiting for repair service appointment @ HWH.
Very park like setting,No litter/No trash & the lawn was immaculate.
We are a 40' Foretravel DP with toad and had several sites to choose from. No it was not perfectly level but we made do.
Electric was 126 & 124 per leg on a 50a hookup.
No issues getting satellite coverage.
didn't hook up to water or sewer, but they were conveniently located. - Saddlesore

Although an older park, this place is just perfect for an over night stay. Most sites are quite level and easy to get in and out. It is close to I-80, so traffic noise might disturb some. Once we bedded down for the night, we had a great night sleep. Office staff was very friendly and check in was a breeze. - cbay

We were driving across country on our way to Vermont and saw kayakers in a lake near the Interstate. Weary from many miles, we wanted to stop and see if we could soon be enjoying the water and in no time, we were. It was mid week and the different campground areas were only sparsely inhabited. It was easy to find a great spot. We had water and electricity. The campground is clean and spacious.
We kayaked for an hour and loved it. We are whitewater kayakers and this was lake kayaking but what a respite from the long hours driving. They have paddleboats and kayaks and a tandem kayak will be coming soon. Life jackets are provided. We biked to the lake from our campsite. We loved it here. - KSum

Summit Campground is at Gate 1 and this is a very nice campground with gravelled and grassy sites that are nearly level. There are only water and electric available but the dump station is very accessible and convenient. The park ranger comes by in the evening to collect the fee and is very cordial and helpful. The campground host is just as helpful and polite and gave us a few pointers about how the place is laid out. The campground gate is closed and locked at 8:00 PM and is unlocked at 6:00 AM and things were very quiet throughout the night. If we are ever in the area again we would definitely try to stay here. - KC8RXQ

We made reservations 3-4 weeks in advance, after several emails and unanswered phone calls. We finally got a hold of a live person (I assume was the owner) and was told that there was full hookups available and no deposit was needed. After a 3.5 hour drive, arriving after dark, we find out that the campground has been booked for months and the host is given NO INFORMATION on reservations from the office/owner AND that this happens all the time. Also, upon arrival, the campground was very dark, the space numbers were hard to find/read, the sign said host was at space 8 when actually there were in space 7. When trying to call the office/owner, I was unable to get a hold of anyone. Since this is the first time trying to stay at a Passport America campground, I will think twice about using another Passport America campground as this reflects poorly how one does business. I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND OR TRY TO STAY HERE AGAIN. Fortunately the state park around the corner had available sites, yet not the full hookups we originally wanted. - myztique

Nice Park. Ok Big rig access. I reserved this site through the KOA web Site did not see the buton "Campground specials". Stayed Sunday Night until Thursday morning. Paid for 4 nights. The Campground special is stay Sunday through Wednesday and Tuesday is free, However you can not get this special unless you input the special code in the website or mention it on the phone when you make the reservation. If you pay without mentioning the special they will not give it to your after the fact. - Bill1114

This is an older KOA and very expensive. The Quad Cities do not have many private campgrounds and the other (Interstate in Davenport) is also expensive. This is adequate for short stays. Roads are quite narrow. If this campground were full, everyone would be very close, and driving the roads would be a challenge. There are a couple of lakes here and the campground is in the trees so the light industry in the area is not visible. - AirstreamGene

Nice long pull-thru site on the end but still overpriced. Wifi was not great. - wallysmom
