10 Parks near Olin, Iowa
Aug 2013 - $20.00
This campground has been around for along time. It's at river level and gets flooded out almost every spring. Which is the reason for not having water or sewer at this time. Its a very clean park with level sites. You get a free stack of fire wood upon arrival. Water activities such as tubing and canoeing are offered. - rving4fun

This is a small state park off US-151, NE of Cedar Rapids, and has just 26 sites, about half of which have 30-amp electric hookups. You may well find yourselves the only ones there, but reservations can be made on-line, follow the link on the Iowa Parks website. The campground is well shaded. Only a few sites are level, but most are within limits for an RV. A small golf course is adjacent with the clubhouse serving breakfast & lunch if you want to "eat out". VERY quiet at night. - SkyparkJohn

We were here overnight. We needed a level pull through site; they had a site that exactly met our needs.
The staff was courteous.
The signs had been taken down due to some renovations so we were a little confused when we arrived.
They are changing their name to Monticello Jellystone. The receipt said that and the man at the front desk had that embroidered on his shirt. - skigramp

This is a pretty campground from a distance but as you get close it gets a little rough looking. The sites are close together and well shaded. some sites might get sat TV with a portable unit, and OTA is not bad with 12 channels. The sites are gravel/grass/dirt as are the interior roads. Big rigs will not have any problems maneuvering and parking. We experienced no water pressure on a couple of occasions and the WIFI was useless. You could connect to their system but not to the internet, and they had no clue how to fix it. The park was virtually deserted during our middle of the week stay, but would be busy on the weekends based on the number of seasonal units. - lllkrob

Very nice park and the owners are super people. The only reason I did not give a 10 rating is because they do not have cable and they allow campfires (because of my asthma this keeps me inside the camper when I would much rather be out and about walking around and meeting people). We have stayed here many times over the past 10 years and have always had a good time. - ParrotMom

Beautiful park! We used a back in site that supposedly had a "slight" slope. We never did get quite level. The pull through sites were worse. There was a large motorhome on one that the front wheels were off the ground and looked like they could have used a ladder to enter the door. But other than the sites not being level, it was a pleasant stay and family oriented. - User781

This is a very interesting state park in Maquoketa, Iowa. We enjoyed the caves and the associated hikes, very interesting geology, surprisingly out among some corn fields in Iowa. The largest cave goes underneath the entrance drive road, which is interesting. The campground was pretty nice, but only offers 30A electric. You have to use your water tank and pump for fresh water, which tends to limit stays to a matter of days. We really enjoyed our visit, and as with all Iowa State Parks the price is very reasonable at $16. Just a couple miles out the rear exit is an absolutely fantastic all you can eat Catfish Restaurant and Fish Farm from which the catfish come. There are many trees over the campground, so getting satellite tv reception is not guaranteed. - Stax

Absolutely great time with my family. Our site was perfect. I like that you can reserve spots. We really had a great time in the caves. Lot spacing is spacious and range from mostly shady to covered/forested. Site surface is gravel and features a fire ring and picnic table. - Charles_ Jeannie

Nice park and a great value. Sites are close together and not large, but most seemed very level. I believe ReserveAmerica lists all the site lengths as 40' and if so, that would be the entire length of the site. Our 37' DP took up almost all of the site front to back. I would not want to take anything larger in and would be reluctant to use a 5th wheel or very large travel trailer. Campground is small and fills up completely on summer weekends. Very peaceful during the week. - Jagnweiner

I was with a group, thus the comment about parking on grass. Most of their sites are flat gravel. FREE fire wood (large amount) is delievered to your sight. Park also has river rafting which is great. - rving4fun

I found this campground after a long google search of any campgrounds more than an hour away from us. We made the reservation, and then I read the previous review on here, and was a little freaked out. We arrived and there was NOTHING to worry about! There are tons of seasonal campers parked there, and they're all along the perimeter, and we were one of the few weekenders there. The campground is converted farmland, and the trees are still babies so they don't provide shade, so we just put up our awning :) Our kids and dogs really enjoyed walking down to the beach, playing in the river, and going on hikes through the woods. We were there in the beginning of camping season, and I can imagine it's quite the party destination in the middle of the summer, especially with the tubers. That being said, we can't WAIT to go back!! - JKBuzenby

Located on a ridge of a farm between a cornfield and small river. Pretty crudely-built with VERY narrow "tracks" and steep grades, not proper roads and with limited gravel. Rained the AM we were to arrive, but the owner wouldn't let me out of my reservation, saying I could get my 45 ft. MH up the hill onto the site. Had to turn on uneven grassy areas and back down the track about 300 ft. to the site. VERY many tent campers on both side of us kept boom boxes going 'till past midnight-the owners seemed nice enough, but no noise enforcement! It's OK if this kind of camping suits you, but next time I'll find another place, if I can. - slabman

Great place with roomy sites. The front loop has full hookups and mostly pull through sites that can handle big rigs. Concrete patios with picnic tables and fire pits. The back loop is older with only a few sites having electricity but costs less. Lots of room between sites and an outstanding playground for the kids. - UTTransplant

This campground has an excellent playground, clean but minimalist showers, and a few short trails. Since it is so close to Cedar Rapids / Marion the cell coverage is great. I plan to return regularly. Note that there are 2 loops to this park. The loop with sewer connections is reservable, but costs more. The other loop is first-come first-serve. - Keystone Trail
Sep 2016 - $27.00
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 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

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
