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. We camped at Fairport Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Fairport Recreation Area in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Fairport Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

Pleasant campground right on the Mississippi River. Our site (#36) was about 100 yards from the river bank, with a great view out our windshield. This early (April 10), water wasn't turned on yet. Easy back-in sites for big rigs. Sites were gravel, well-drained and level enough. Central dump station. Lots of trees, so satellite access might be a problem once they leaf out. Surprisingly, we had a good Verizon Broadband (EVDO) connection. Some site are reservable. A definite winner. We camped at Fairport Recreation Area in a Motorhome.
