The campground is part of a popular marina on the shores of Coralville Lake, and the setting is lovely. We were there on a busy summer weekend when all sites were taken, so that we had neighbors close on either side of our site. While other aspects of the campground were fine, the restrooms were not; they were dirty and did not appear to be cleaned during the entirety of our stay. The showers were especially bad. The on-site restaurant has live music on weekends, and the noise on a Saturday night was intrusive. In addition, trash had to be hauled quite a distance from the site and there were no recycling bins. We camped at Scales Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

Park has great deal of seasonal residents, not leaving many sites for visitors. Staff that checked us in did not know which sites were 30 or 50 amp, didn't clarify that we wanted sewer with 50 amp (we were staying couple days), sent us to 3 different sites (2nd site we had already leveled on blocks before we realized it was 30 amp). Ended up that we took site without sewer, which was gravel, fairly level (previous site was not) and spacious, plenty of room for motorhome and towed and 4 slides. Site had beautiful shade trees which were very helpful for comfort, but blocked our DirecTv signal. Verizon service very good. This park really caters to locals who come in for weekend with their own watercraft, nothing is available for rental. The neighbor says they have entertainment on the weekend. I don't think you'd get in on weekend without reservation but Mon-Wed ok. Park was quite a ways from interstate which made the setting serene. We camped at Scales Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

You have to use Hwy 965 to get to campground, which is under construction, with several detours, which were very confusing, taking you through small residential streets that weren't too RV friendly. The construction made the campground undesirable.

This is a beautiful shady campground on Coralville Lake. There is a busy marina and a popular bar/restaurant on site. The campground has a playground, sand volleyball courts, and horseshoe courts. The sites that are on the lake have full hookups, but those sites are reserved for seasonal campers. We were on site W 13 which was water/electric and had a nice view of the lake. All sites are long and shaded. The bathhouse was clean and modern. However, there is only one, and it is not in the overnight camper section. Lots of campers have their own golf carts. We enjoyed drinks and lunch at Bobbers, the bar and restaurant on site. The seasonal campers were very friendly and welcoming. We will definitely return. We camped at Scales Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.

This park use to be called Jolly Rogers campground. The new owners have put $500,000 or more into the park. New roads, bar, restaurant, and small store. The view is the best I have seen in the 5 weeks since getting our first and only Motorhome 38 feet. You can make reservations with out leaving a credit card number. We camped at Scales Campground and Marina in a Motorhome.
