ALERT: This campground will be closing permanently on June 1, 2014.

We wish every park had their 4 individual restroom/shower combination. Nice, clean, large, good pressure, etc. Small, quiet, lovely park with great friendly staff. Between Cedar Rapids & Iowa City & lots to do. Hookups were good, roads & grass with trees. We would return. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Fifth Wheel.

If you want a campground that is excellent this is it. It's not a resort with all the noise just a clean, friendly, quiet campground. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Truck Camper.

I have stayed here 2 - 3 weeks at a time in back-in sites the last 2 summers. The whole property is very neat and clean. Owner and staff are friendly and helpful. I will definitely be back. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Motorhome.

We stayed overnight in this campground when returning from vacation. I requested and was provided a long pull-through so that I did not have to unhook my camper. Campground was clean and well cared for and the office staff was friendly, making this a good campground for an overnight stay. The campground does have one strange feature : The entry road to the larger sites is before the office making it necessary to back up to make the turn into the road. While it is a straight back-up with longer units your camper will end up backing onto the main road so it is important to watch for traffic (fortunately it is a rural road with little traffic). We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small park that works well for large rig stop overs. Some are longer term workers in the area with neatly kept RVs. Very convenient for those visiting the area. Caters more to adults than families. Extremely clean and maintained to the point of being groomed. Good shade. There is a lot of development in the area. In five years the park will feel closed in by ticky tacky, but for now it is in the cornfields. Moderate water pressure in back ins. Poor in pull throughs. Water well occasionally produces some H2S gas. Power is moderately clean. Showers are ample, spotless and personalized with vanity and dressing areas behind closed doors. Wi-Fi is metered, so you are only going to get 0.150G down and ridiculously low uploads. Personal Verizon hotspot is excellent. All pads are incredibly small, wide only for rim to rim, mostly gravel. Good space between back ins, but quite close for the pull-throughs. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Fifth Wheel.

We stayed here two nights, price reflexes Good Sam discount. This park is located just outside of town in a quiet area and close to any store/restaurant you might want to find. Staff was very friendly and helpful. We did not use the laundry facility, but the restrooms are by far the nicest we've seen. Our site was relatively level and spacious. Over the air TV was good and the Wi-Fi worked well. We would stay here again. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Motorhome.

No cable. Site was fairly level. WiFi was iffy. We didn't see anything for little ones to do - no pool or other activities. Office was not open until 3PM but occupants of fifth wheel across from the office will get you settled. We would probably look elsewhere to camp if we were in the area again.

We stayed here overnight and I wasn't sure what we would get. I couldn't find them in RV Park reviews because they are actually in North Liberty according to their address. My husband made the reservation and I was pleasantly surprised when we got here. Everything is clean and green and QUIET. No road noise, no trains. It truly is a gem. It is not a resort by any means... no pool, no cable, but if you are looking for just a nice time, this is the place. Verizon wi-fi worked great and so did their free wi-fi. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Travel Trailer.

Outstanding camping experience! The owner is as nice a person as you could hope for. She takes great care of the park, even cutting trails through the woods that surround the park. We enjoyed the trails immensely, but our dogs told us they enjoyed them more! Relaxed country atmosphere on the edge of a college town urban area - best of both worlds! Shady sites, all services/utilities were great and excellent OTA TV reception. Tons of stuff to do (we enjoyed the fossil beds, Hoover Museum). We'll definitely be back for many more visits!

Top notch RV Park. Smaller park set in the woods, was part of a large family farm. Owner set aside a large wooded area for use as an RV park. Spaces are reasonably level and are accessed off a long circular drive. Didn't see any spaces that would be tough to get into, even though most of them are back-in spaces. We had no difficulty putting our 30' RV into a back-in space. Park is quiet. is a couple of miles off a main highway Access to Iowa City and area attractions is really good. We're planning to take a long weekend and go back in several months - it was that pleasurable and relaxing. If you have dogs, be prepared for an extra pleasurable time. The owner mows wide trails through the woods every spring, giving you great places to walk your dogs where they can be in nature's good smells. Our rottweiler and doberman sniffed up a couple of rabbits the day we left and had an absolute ball tracking them! The dogs thoroughly enjoyed the whole weekend we stayed there!

Colony is a well maintained campground located in a suburban setting. The roads and pads are crushed limestone. Any size rig can be accommodated. A majority of the pads are level; a very few need front to back leveling. The newly renovated restrooms are very clean. There is free WiFi. OTA television is satisfactory, depending on where you’re located. The owners are actively involved in the operation of the campgrounds. We will stay here again.

Quiet park, convenient to the Amana Colonies and Iowa State University. Friendly staff and residents. The pull-through sites are designated for short-term stays, so easy in and out. The shower/rest rooms are private and very nice. They have a 'homestyle' laundry with newer household machines, so you just pay by the load at the front desk and no searching your pockets for quarters. We enjoyed our stay here.

Nice park a few miles off the highway. Very quiet and long pull throughs so you do not have to disconnect the toad. Great pet walking areas and very friendly host campers. Lots of trees and grass. We camped at Colony Country Campground (Closed) in a Motorhome.

This is a wonderful little RV park. We stayed one night here in our fifth wheel. Management was very friendly and helpful. Our site was level on a gravel pad with an easy approach. The bathroom/showers were immaculate. We prefer being able to put down an outside mat by our door to prevent dirt getting into our unit, but this was not allowed to protect the grass. This was the only negative about the park and I must say the grass was thick and well maintained and looked lovely. The rate reflects Good Sam Discount. We would stay here again.
