Park review Nice looking park. We paid for full hookups but the self serve registration and the park map have different descriptions of which is which. The park is built on a hillside and the sites are not very level. Interior roads are poor, rutted in some places. When we found one that was close side to side, it was bad front to back. I had to use 3 inches of blocks on the back of my tow vehicle to get close to level, after trying to level at 3 other sites. No wifi in campground, maybe at the office. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Campground is hilly, sites are narrow and not level. Very hard to navigate and you can't park with your towable, as sites are too short. Roads are rutted to the point you can get stuck. Staff is rude and depending on who you speak to they change their story on what is allowed. Although they say they are pet friendly, the sites are so small, it's hard to have enough room for your pet and you can't put up an ex-pen. Waterfront means across the street from the "fishing" lake, it's not accessible for swimming. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a very well maintained and attractive park. It's a peaceful place to stay. The stocked lake was great for fishing. The pool was very nice. The staff were friendly and helpful. There were lots of activities for the kids. Though close to the interstate, there was no noise problems. It is conveniently located to area attractions so we spent one afternoon sightseeing and wine tasting. The only drawback was the WiFi was not camp-wide, but just a hotspot in the office building and we couldn't get TV reception with our camper antenna. Other then that, this is a great place to stay. I would highly recommend this campground and plan to camp here again. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This is a pretty park. It is very hilly. Site 102 was not level and muddy. Satellite TV did not work, too many trees. Due to rain and mud, it was a little difficult to get out because road was so steep. Nice people and store. Grand kids caught fish in the lake. As I said, it is a pretty park. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Very friendly owner, nice camp store offering soft serve ice cream, local wine, and firewood. Campground is hilly, so plan to do some leveling. Quite a few permanent campers in mostly fifth wheels and trailers. Everything was neat and well kept and very quiet. Grounds are dirt and grass with some sites having gravel. It rained the night we were there and turned the dirt areas to mud. Bathrooms are old, but clean. Shower had decent pressure and new shower curtains. Lots of hooks for hanging things, but no shelf in the shower area. The water smelled rusty when it first came on, but felt softened. Nice, clean swimming pool, play ground and fishing lake. Very easy on and off I-80. Outside the RV some traffic noise could be heard, but not enough to be a bother. No noise could be heard from inside the RV. Picnic table and fire ring at each site. Lots of trees so opening a slide will take careful parking. We would stay here again for the peace and quiet and the easy freeway access. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Great place for weekend getaways - adults and kids; plenty of things for kids to do, and pool is open for Memorial Day. Tables / fire pits at each site. Gravel roads and sites - some leveling required on some sites. Take water filter with you - they're working on improving it; "softened" water in showers/laundry. Dog owners kept dogs quiet - ground clean, and no noise or rowdiness; this was a very pleasant stay for us. 10 miles to "the mall," 4-5 to Amana Colonies. Owners were great - did their best not to move us or our traveling companions when husband's ER/hospital stay delayed our departure by four days. We'll definitely be back to Sleepy Hollow.

I agree with others that the setting is nice but that is more than offset by the totally unlevel dirt/gravel sites. I have jacks on the motor home and still needed blocks. The pull-throughs are shorter than most RV parks. I had a full-hookup site and it had no cable and the sites have enough trees that it blocks the satellite signal. We checked out a day early.

Nice place with a pleasant seting by the lake, all in all I liked it. Leveling of the RV was just a bit tricky, but if you're an experienced RV'er you won't have much trouble. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This family is wonderful! They are so friendly and helpful and welcoming. While we were here we didn't swim in the pool but it looked lovely and the playground next to it kept my 5 & 2 year old boys happy! They also rent bikes, which my sons and I played on for a while (reasonably priced) and had a good time. I recommend it. HOWEVER please note: I don't think there is a truly level site in the place. We were here for only a night but after trying 8 spots, we settled for one near the water, enjoyed it but had to really use our levelers. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Travel Trailer.

The most extreme out of level sites I have ever seen at a campground. It was very hard to get into our site. The place was very loud at night looks like there are a lot of drinkers, it seemed that the staff didn't really care about it. The play ground was ok but only 10ft from the lake edge--very dangerous for kids. The concrete around the lake had pieces of metal sticking out that could very easily hurt someone. We will stay at wal-mart when coming through next time. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

Registration unattended and apparently no on-site management. Water was very rusty and smelled bad. After letting it run for awhile, it still clogged the hose filter in less than one minute. Fortunately, we had some water on board and did not connect to the local supply. Park was very noisy - Loud highway background noise, dogs barking all night and people yelling and arguing very late into the night. Finally packed up and left at 4:00 AM. Will not return.

Rating was marked down because there was no attendant at check-in. We had to pick our own site and couldn't ask any questions. Although they claimed to have WiFi, it did not reach across the campground to our site. The morning we left, flies were swarming all around our site. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Too much money for what is provided and that rate is with the Good Sam discount. The roads and sites are supposed to be gravel, but the gravel has long since disappeared. Thus, with the rains, it's a sloppy mess. The laundry room is old and so are the machines, but they seemed to do the job ok. No significant road noise although the park is right off the highway. It was easy to find. Several permanent residents here. There is a swimming pool but we didn't see anyone in it (don't know what that means, but we don't use them regardless). The children's playground is located adjacent to the pond/lake (within a few feet of it) which I think was poor planning. That's got "accident" written all over it! We would not use this facility again. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

An older type campground with mostly permanent residents in rigs of various levels of maintenance and care. The sewer location is at the extreme rear of the pull through sites, making setup difficult. There were numerous sites that were sufficiently sloped as to make leveling a big rig challenging, although our site and the one next to us were flat enough. This is ok for a stopover, but we would not camp here for an extended stay. We camped at Sleepy Hollow RV Park & Campground in a Motorhome.

This campground is centrally located to Iowa City, Coralville, and the Amana Colonies. This is a great area to visit. We were pleasantly surprised. The WiFi worked fine, and the grounds were clean. The campground is in a beautiful setting. However, the park needs a bit of upkeep. We couldn't use the bathrooms because they smelled bad. They smelled like rusty pipes. The water on site is well water. I skipped showering because the smell was overpowering. I'm not sure we will return. The central location is a plus.
